On Monday, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the Zionist entity a racist and apartheid state. He urged Turks to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque more often as Israeli occupation of Al-Quds (Old Jerusalem) is shameful for Turks.
Erdogan also warned Donald Trump administration on relocating US embassy to Jerusalem. “The debates over the possibility of US moving its Israel embassy to Jerusalem are extremely wrong and should certainly drop from the agenda,” he said.
Erdogan was speaking at a two-day conference of International Forum on Al-Quds Waqfs on May 8 in Istanbul.
On Tuesday, the Zionist regime held a sharply worded phone call with Turkey’s ambassador in Tel Aviv, Kemal Okem to protest Erdogan’s politically wrong statement.
Under international law Israel has no legal claim to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is Palestinian territory, and Israel’s occupation of the city is illegal, in violation of both the Fourth Geneva Convention and numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions.
Erdogan’s truth was too hard for his Israeli counterpart to digest. Moron Reuven Rivlin in a jab at Turkey said that “Jerusalem had Jewish majority since Ottoman rule.”
According to Ottoman census 1910, Jews made only 5% of total population of Palestine while owning only 2.5% of land and properties.
Morton A. Klein, president Zionist Organization of America, ranted David Ben Gurion’s 1950 lie about Jerusalem not mentioned in Holy Qur’an to debunk Erdogan’s statement.
On June 11, 2014, Rachel Avraham, wrote at Jerusalem Online: “The Ottoman Empire was a safe heaven for the Jewish people who experienced a golden age there similar to the Golden Age of Spain. During this period of history, Turkish-Jewish relations were phenomenal. It was a time of peace, prosperity, and serenity for Ottoman Jews (here).”
