Erdogan Fires another Broadside at Israel

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has fired another broadside at Israel over its aggression against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

“We cannot watch the murder of children in Gaza with indifference. This is not humane,” he said as Turkish officials gathered to mark the launch of Turkey’s first round-the-clock Arabic language TV network, El Turkiye, Israeli website Ynet News reported on Monday.

"Arabs and Turks are brothers and we share the same values," he added.

Turkey has repeatedly censured Tel Aviv since the December 2008-January 2009 Gaza war in which Israeli forces massacred more than 1,400 Palestinians during artillery, aerial, and naval bombardments of the Gaza Strip.

Tensions mounted after Tel Aviv’s humiliating treatment of the Turkish ambassador to Israel in response to a Turkish prime-time TV show in which Mossad agents were depicted as child-killers and kidnappers.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry responded to Erdogan’s comments by issuing a statement saying, "Israel is not looking for a confrontation with any country, including Turkey. However, it appears as though the Turkish prime minister is looking to integrate into the Muslim world at Israel’s expense.”
