Turkish PM: Israel Has ‘Surpassed What Hitler Did To Them’

Share:

erdoganTurkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan ridiculed Israel’s ground invasion of Gaza, accusing the Israeli government of “barbarism that surpasses Hitler.”

Speaking at a political re-election rally in the Turkish city of Ordu, Turkey’s prime minister said that Israel has “surpassed what Hitler did to them” and declared the country a “terrorist state.”

“[Israelis] have no conscience, no honor, no pride. Those who condemn Hitler day and night have surpassed Hitler in barbarism,” said Erdoğan. He accused Israel of rejecting ceasefires that Hamas has proposed and “spitting death, spitting blood.”

Erdogan reiterated his opposition to Israel’s operations in the Gaza Strip and said that the Israel Defense Forces have had a “disproportionate” effect and will end any positive relations between Israel and Turkey. Despite the climbing death toll of Palestinians – with nearly 800 killed during the most recent Israeli offensive in Gaza – Erdogan said that the Turkish people should not take out their frustrations on Turkey’s own Jewish community.

“I don’t approve of any [bad] attitude towards our Jewish citizens in Turkey, despite all this,” Erdogan told supporters. “Why? They are citizens of this country.”

Recent rallies in Turkey have shown a growing opposition to Israel, with the country’s government reducing its staff in Turkey due to safety concerns and reports that the Israeli flag was torn down and replaced with a Palestinian one, The Independent reports.

Erdogan also told Turkish supporters that Turkey’s involvement with Qatar – despite Israel’s accusations that Qatar supports terrorism – will continue as a show of support for those “persecuted” by Israel.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met twice Friday in Cairo with U.N. chief Ban Ki-Moon and Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri to try to nail down a deal to bring a week-long pause in the fighting and begin as soon as this weekend.

It’s part of a plan to phase in a lasting cease-fire between Israel and the Hamas militant group in the three-week war.

Two diplomats close to the negotiations said a deal had not yet been reached but spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be named.

Kerry, Ban and Shukri were expected to brief the media later Friday.

      Problem there is, The World couldn’t watch back then, or film the ‘camps’ in action.
      MacArthur could only film the ‘end results’.
      Couldn’t watch the remains of an airplane smouldering in the fields while peasants ransacked it, either. Or barrel-bombs falling on bread-lines.
      I don’t understand why people want ‘Sit-Coms’ any more … ‘Live Events’ are more interesting. And more instructional at the same time. ‘How Not To Live’

      Basically, Humankind has spent more time trying to figure out itself, why it’s here, why it doesn’t all think the same way or look the same, and how the neighbours enjoy sex, than in figuring out how to look after itself on what is a relatively small planet with different landscapes. (‘Why Am I Here’ – it’s figging Hot/Cold/Windy – etc)
      How To Do Less Work has also been a ‘comparative study’ project.
      (How Not To Enjoy Sex seems to have been relegated to a small bunch of sand-farmers.)
      But these days we can actually and finally spy on each other fairly well. As we like to call it, ‘In Real Time’. (As opposed to the past which was ‘Un-Real’ mostly….)
      And in some cases, we find more was weird about a few of those neighbours than first suspected. But no-one can say it’s not entertaining. :-))

  3. soo..the guys whose country murdered 1,000,000 simply by walking them for years is so disturbed by the deaths of 800 that he can compare them to 6,000,000.

    Turkish criminals the children of Ottoman empire you forgot all your crimes? you forgot all the massacres you commit? you forgot how you tortured millions of people? you forgot how you occupied all the Arab nations? you forgot the Genocide of the Armenians? you forgot that the land where you are standing now doesn’t belong to you????????? you forgot that 30% of your present map belongs to the Armenians, another 30% to the Greeks and another 30% to the Kurd? And half of Cyprus to the Cypriot? why dont you clean first your bloody hands and after make comments about others.
    You are a criminal nation, dirty nation, hypocrite nation, you must admit your crimes to the world and give back the lands you occupy… History will never forget what you did… you can Google the wars & crimes of the ottomans and see with your eyes…

    I dare you to denounce the Syrian regime before the civil war how they mutilated Lebanon along with their iranian devils.. or is it only you use Israel as convenience to get more popular? Besides where was turkey long time ago when Israel was bombing the hell out of the Palestinians in Lebanon? they were very friendly to Israel.. if anyone should not speak its you and your damned gov’t. You have big credibility issues and no one will believe you are genuine.. besides all these arab nations condemning Israel but no one lifts a finger and that includes Hezbollah, Iran and Syria.. who Bull Shits us everyday about their so called champion cause of Palestinians.. Barking from afar is not enough. who am i kidding Iran doesn’t want to fight ISIS and they’re so close to them.. I am wandering why??

    erdogan , your country turkey is the biggest devil on earth , killers and criminals,
    what about the 2 milions armenians civilians that you murdered in cold blood ,what about the millios of kurds you deprive them a basic human rights in turkey and you,ve been killing them for years, what about all the crimes and massacre you committed in lebanon when you had the so called jamal basha al saffah , was hanging hundred of thousands of lebaneese , simple because they were christians , or shia,s and they did not belong to his sunnis sect as a turkish , you are criminal and evil , if you , were to fix any one start with your cown evils and crimes, start with giving the 20 millions kurds who live in turkey there basic human rights , and admit the genoside you commited against the arminian people , and ask turkey to pay them 100 billions dollars to componsate them , to show a good faith that you regret what you country did to them , and you are willing to make up the sufferring to all thoes millions of armenians , you see erdogan you hav,nt done any of that , because you agree what turkey committed of genoside and crimes , and that will classify you worst than hitler , or any evil dictator had come to history .
