Turkish President Receipt Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday that if Israel’s actions are allowed, the world would be thrown into chaos.

The United Nations has “collapsed” in the face of events in Gaza, the Turkish president said, adding that Ankara was pressing members of the UN Security Council to be more active.

On Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Ankara had decided to recall its ambassadors in Washington and Tel Aviv for consultations in connection with Israel’s actions in the Gaza Strip, where dozens of Palestinians were killed on Monday while protesting against the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem. The president also called Israel a terrorist state, and its actions toward the Palestinians an act of genocide.

Turkey also proposed the Israeli ambassador to Ankara to leave the country. In response, the Israeli Foreign Ministry asked the Turkish consul general in Jerusalem to leave the Jewish state. On Wednesday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry asked the Israeli consul general in Istanbul to temporarily leave the country.

For decades, Israel has been in conflict with the Palestinians, who have been seeking diplomatic recognition for their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, which are partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip.

Both Israel and Palestine also claim Jerusalem as their capital. Tensions between Israel and the Palestinians flared up after US President Donald Trump’s December decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and relocate the US embassy to the city from Tel Aviv.

Jerusalem sounds really like an Arab name…
Maybe Erdogan should read the Ottoman censuses… When Ottomans were pushed out by the Brits, there were only 5000 Arabs living in Jerusalem for 13,000 Christians and 42,000 Jews…
When Ottomans stole Constantinople, the city was near 100% Christian…

Jerusalem does not sound Arabic to me. Al Quds is the Arabic name. It does not matter who lived in Jerusalem under the Ottomans. The Brits changed the demographic structure after WW I the continued to let people settle there.

WOW, Er-dog-an pretend to be a palestine defender. What Turkey must do is to recognize the State of Palestine before the UN.

Big words, what can Erdogan do? His permissions are not needed by the Zionists in the UK, in Israel and the US. He is not even a neighbour of Israel – so he cannot make war except with the mouth.

To Israel and the US Erdogan is a dog with no teeth. He can only bark and hunt under armed Kurdish.

Even the small war weary Syrian army can do better than his.

Abu Bakr: who is coperating with israal today? Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahreyn. I can imagine and i am sure that Shia Irakis killed many Sunni arabs in Irak, but in time of saddam it was vice versa.
We moslems should not let USA/Isreal kill us eachother. The main, big evil is israel and USA!

Abu bakr, Your Wahabi Kings and monarchs are the real Zonist lapdogs. They serve and obey their Master in Tel Aviv and cheating the whole Muslim Ummah. Most of intelligent Sunni/Shia Muslims know this. Only some Wahabi dogs like you never realize this fact.

The right path of Islam is to shrink back between the two mosques (Mecca and Medina), just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.

Susan : Israel’s capital city is NOT Tel-Aviv : all official buildings here are the city-house and embassies. It was a surrogate capital-city during the 1948-1949 Arab invasion as having the government in Jerusalem would have let the govt into artillery range which would have been suicidal!

“first who let Russia try to invade Afghanistan?”
=> Russia didn’t invaded Afgha, they were called by Afgha govt. to help fighting against the US/Saudi backed terrorists.

Lucky you to wänk before you sleep, I’m not allowed to by the wife Also sorry the soviets couldn’t help you to get your 72 virgin goats. Even more sorry you weren’t around at the time I met my (ex-muslim) wife when we were both deployed in Afgha… In the past, I sometimes spoke about using shithadists carcasses to feed the pigs. In fact, we managed to get a herd of pigs, thanks to some shenanigan with Yankee logistics… Nonetheless it allowed us to have great fresh charcuterie but we used these as a faaar more efficient mean to make… Read more »

By the same logic over 15-20% of population in Saoudi Arabia are Shia. Over 80% of the Oil n Gas Hydraocarbons are located in Shia populated regions. Sunnis cant do any shiit in Saoudi against these Shias. If you try anything just like how Saddam lit up the Kuwaiti Oil wells up on fire the Saoudi Oil wells will all go up on fire and it will be back to herding camels n goats for the majority of uneducated Sunnis. I can already see it coming. MBS will last not last long. He will fall an a huge political turmoil… Read more »

ROFL Abu Bark, ISIS didn’t made the ‘house of war’ gather in Iraq/Syria, actually, it’s the contrary : we led them to gather there just like we catch fishes with a bait and look in what dire straits they are now! Your proud caliphate is now the size of the towel on your head 😉 If your dear Abu Bark al-Baghdadi gets captured instead of killed, soon you’ll either know he resides in the real h**l on Earth that is Gitmo where he’ll beg the wardens to kill him or just let him commit suicide or else, you’ll see him… Read more »

Abu Zemmel the baker of lies trolls again. Note abn sighe: only about 26k of the once big Jewish population remained in Iran after the 1948 purges.

75% of all Jews are Aschkenasim, descendends of Jews that lived in Europe during the Middle Ages. But 61% of the Jews in Israel are Mizrahim aka Eastern Jews driven from Muslim countries and robbed of their ancestral homes. The Muslim purges of the Eastern Jews have stabilized and legitimized the state of Israel beyond any claims of the Palestinians.
