Moving my thread here - Turkey/middle east thread
What the HECK is going on with Erdogan?
Fine, he went 180 on Israel, I guess he decided to join the club, though the last time I checked, 9 years ago or so when that earthquack happened, it was Israeli soldiors pulling dozens of injured turkish people out of the rubble, while most of his other middle-east neighbors couldn't give a damn, but like everyone, he has a short-term memory.
But to invite the president of Sudan, and to announce that Israel commited worse crimes than the goverment of Sudan, because Muslims aren't capable of genocide?
"Also in an address to party members on Sunday, he said "those world leaders who criticize us, have they ever visited Darfur? Their information is solely based on what the rapporteurs are reporting. These kinds of moves will not contribute to world peace."
"It's not possible for a Muslim to commit genocide," he said, adding "that's why we are comfortable with the visit of al-Bashir."
I could stand critisism of Israel so much better, if those doing the most critisising weren't so damn hypocrtical.
Okay. Vent over. I can you can slam me now.
