Turkey – PM calls Israel a threat

He’s got the right idea.


The prime minister of Turkey, Israel’s only ally in the Muslim world, on Wednesday branded the Jewish state the “principal threat to peace” in the Middle East.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s remarks to reporters at a breakfast meeting in Paris marked a new low in rapidly deteriorating relations between Israel and Turkey, which once had close military and political ties.

“If a country uses disproportionate force in Palestine, in Gaza – uses phosphorous shells – we’re not going to say ‘bravo’,” he declared, referring to Israel January 2009 offensive against Hamas-controlled Gaza.
