Quite frankly I think he is the only leader in the free world who has the balls to say it as it is.
(Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the United Nations on Monday of failing to act over the deadly Israeli air bombardments of Gaza, calling Israeli a "terrorist state" that "massacres innocent children".
He accused the UN Security Council of "turning a blind eye" to the suffering of Muslims across the world and called for "sincere action" to end Israel's strikes on Gaza, where 90 Palestinians died since violence erupted on Wednesday, while three Israelis have been killed in militant rocket fire.
The international community is watching "as Israel violently massacres innocent children in Gaza," Erdogan said in an address to religious leaders of Muslim countries gathered in Istanbul, labelling Israel "a terrorist state".
Erdogan emerged as a staunch advocate of the Palestinian cause in January 2009, when he stormed out of a Davos panel over Israel's blockade of the impoverished Gaza Strip.
Ties between Ankara and Tel Aviv were further strained after Israeli commandos raided a Gaza-bound Turkish aid flotilla in the Mediterranean in May 2010, killing nine Turks on board.
Erdogan also said he did not trust the United Nations.
"The fate of seven billion people hangs the words of leaders of five countries," he said, complaining about a lack of representation for Muslim countries on the UN Security Council.
"If you ask me how much I trust the UN, well, I don't," Erdogan said.
"It is a structure created under war conditions, its manifestation today is not fair, the structure is just not fair.")
It's a great shame that Israel and Turkey are no longer partners for the better and I tend to agree with Mr Erdogan about the status of the United Nations and it's power structure post the second world war.
I believe there are lots of Israelis who would prefer to co exist peacefully with their neighbours, but have become pawns of the Zionist agenda.
Having read up quite a lot on historical facts about the relationship with Turkish people and Jews, hand on heart one could never accuse the Turkey past and present of being anti Semitic. Let us not forget that Turkey was the fifth and first majority Muslim country in the world to recognise Israels right to exist.
I think Israels Prime Minister Olmert made a terrible mistake back in 2008 when two days prior to their invasion of Gaza, Olmert had a face to face meeting with Mr Erdogan in Turkey and lied through his teeth to a very close ally who at the time was seeking to mediate between Israel and Syria. Consequently, Israels insincerity regarding the peace process and collective punishment of the Palestinians has shown the world that Israeli leadership are not sincere and are only looking to establish a greater Israel.
What a shame for humanity and Jews!

Meanwhile Turkey continues to occupy N Cyprus despite numerous UN Resolutions since 1974.

Yes, Thomas is my real name.

I'm a pragmatic human being who has served 17 years in Her Majesty's Armed Forces.

To label another person to fit your own agenda is quite comical and a reflection of the type of human being you are.

I would not dare to pigeon hole myself regarding politics and history, but I would like to add that I would comfortably floor you in an blink of an eye lid if you dared to say any of the slanderous statements in front of me.

This is a forum for opinions and discussions and quite frankly your opinion is loaded with xenophobic, racist rhetoric.

Why doesn't it surprise me that a Greek would want to have a dig at Turkey and Turkish Cypriots even on the Israel forum.
I would hazard a guess because you would want to stir up hatred for your own self interest and of your murderous cause. Greek Cypriot Terrorist organisations EOKA - EOKA B, the AKRITAS plan remind you of anything from your history?

If truth be known Sovereign base areas of RAF-Akrotiri and Dhekelia are very familiar to me and they don't belong to Greeks or Turks.

I don't particularly want to get dragged into a deceptive version of history from you, but Greek Cypriots do not have the Moral high ground regarding atrocities committed in Cyprus. I'm all to aware of the animosity of the Greek Cypriots towards Turkish Cypriots but fundamentally to us the English.

This much I do know, none of the UN security council resolutions on Cyprus refer to the intervention of Turkey as an invasion.

As is known, the division of the island began in 1963 when the Greek Cypriots expelled Turkish Cypriots from the partnership state organs and institutions as well as from their homes. The "Green Line", which separates the island into two zones, was drawn on the map right after the Christmas of 1963. The UN peacekeeping Force UNFICYP was stationed on the island in 1964. A decade later, the 1974 venture by Greece to annex the island was resisted by Turkey and Turkish Cypriots in accordance with the 1960 Treaty of Guarantee. Which the United Kingdom, Turkey and Greece and signituaries too.

Unfortunately, since then reunification of the island has not been possible due to the intransigent attitude of the Greek Cypriots, who rejected the UN comprehensive settlement plan in the 2004 referendum. Despite this rejection, granting EU membership further diminished their interest and motivation to achieve settlement on the island.

The Cyprus problem is not an issue of "invasion" or "occupation" but an issue of the renewal of a partnership between the co-owners of the island. As a matter of fact, what you previously referred to as "Northern Cyprus" is not "Turkish-occupied" but Turkish Cypriot populated. Regrettably, the Greek Cypriot administration within the EU fails to represent this part of the island.

So Hellenic Truth your dishonest version of history and rhetoric is a blind statement of non-factual accounts.

Listen, I'm sure there must be a Cyprus forum for you to debate and reconsider your statement.

Wow.....Coming from a douche bag like Erdogan that really means a lot. Before he starts throwing stones, he should man up and admit the shameful genocide that the Turks perpetrated.
