Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has every right to blast the Israel government for the crimes they have committed against the people of Palestine. The Israel government has violated the rights of people and seized their land. But, the very idea that somehow Israel is responsible for actions of the Egyptian government in the murder of thousands is simply a new version of the ancient ‘Protocols of the Elders Of Zion” which blames Israel for all ills in the world. Erdogan insists the United States had no right to blast him for blaming Israel. Prime Minister Erdogan heads a government which has arrested more journalists than any leader of any country in the world. He attacked people in his own nation who dared to protest. We do not charge him with anything like what the Egyptian army has done, but he is hardly an leader who has ruled with justice in his own land.
Turkey has an important role to play in the world. It begins by establishing a model of what moderate Muslim leaders can create in a country. Blaming Israel is simply hysteria and hypocrisy.
