He is absolutely right! Why was there a NATO intervention to protect Kosovo people and nothing in Gaza?
Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called for an “international peace force” to protect Palestinians after dozens were shot dead by Israeli forces on the Gaza border.
Speaking at the 57-member Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which was hosted in Istanbul on Friday, Mr Erdogan said Israel should be held accountable for the killings.
“To take action for Palestinians massacred by Israeli bandits is to show the whole world that humanity is not dead,” Mr Erdogan said, according to Al Jazeera.
Muslim leaders pledged to take “appropriate political [and] economic measures” against countries that followed the US in moving their Israel embassies to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
Mr Erdogan, who is campaigning for re-election next month, used the summit to verbally attack Israel, comparing the actions of its forces to Nazi Germany’s treatment of Jews in the Second World War, when millions were killed in concentration camps.
He also castigated America, saying its decision to move its embassy had emboldened Israel to put down the protests at the border with Gaza with excessive force.
Most countries say the status of Jerusalem – a sacred city to Jews, Muslims and Christians – should be determined in a final peace settlement between Israel and Palestinians and that moving their embassies now would prejudge any such deal.
