“Israel is a terrorist state…”- President Erdogan says


Ankara: President of Turkey Tayyip Erdogan declared Israel as “a terrorist state”, he during press conference said on December 11, 2017, “The allies of Israel are also terrorists and we don’t considered them as superpower, and Trump’s decision has no validity.”

Mr. Erdogan gave that statement after the declaration of recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “null and void.”

In Sivas, Erdogan said, “Palestine has been under occupation since 1947, Israel is an occupying state, a terrorist state.”

Some of the officials told, “Turkey will host an Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit in Istanbul on December 13 to discuss Jerusalem, which is home to sites holy to Muslims, Jews and Christians.”

Responding to Erdogan’s criticism, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “The Turkish leader shouldn’t preach to us.

“He bombs Kurdish villages in Turkey, imprisons journalists … and helps terrorists attack innocents in Gaza and other places.”

“Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years, [and] it’s been the capital of the Jewish state for 70 years,”-he added.

However, Erdogan had threatened to cut diplomatic ties with Israel over the issue of Jerusalem, declaring the city’s status redline for Muslims.

Anger and outraged had been spread all across the Asia after US decision to move its embassy to the city from Asia, through the Middle East, to North Africa, with tens of thousands of people taking to the streets to denounce the controversial move.
