Turkey’s Erdogan Calls Israel A “Terrorist State”


erdogan-turkeyTurkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described Israel on Monday as a “terrorist state” in carrying out its bombardment of Gaza, underlining hostility for Ankara’s former ally since relations between them collapsed in 2010.

His comments came after nearly a week of Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel and Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip. An Israeli missile killed at least 11 Palestinian civilians including four children in Gaza on Sunday.

“Those who associate Islam with terrorism close their eyes in the face of mass killing of Muslims, turn their heads from the massacre of children in Gaza,” Erdogan told a conference of the Eurasian Islamic Council in Istanbul.

“For this reason, I say that Israel is a terrorist state, and its acts are terrorist acts,” he said.

  1. What about the Israeli civilians Palestinians kill, and shoot rockets at, Israel has a right to defend itself against people who start up with them, without the world condemning them for defending themselves. Are the 11 civilians killed by Israeli strikes really innocent Paletinians, and the the children killed are probably sparing us 4 terrorists in 15 – 20 from now.

  2. This nochri has lost his mind … He is bombing Syria to protect his boarder… and we all know Turkey isn’t a terrorist state… So why he calls Israel a terrorist state for doing the same is nothing more than political bluster to pacify those who would over throw him if he supported the Jew… Even if the Jew does exactly what this “turkey” does.

    small “t” turkey = idiot.
