TURKEY – Turkey’s Prime Minister brands Zionism “a crime against humanity”

Recep-Tayyip-ErdoganAt a meeting of the UN Alliance of Civilisations Forum in Vienna, Turkey’s Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, told the forum “As with Zionism, anti-Semitism and fascism, it is inevitable that Islamophobia be considered a crime against humanity.”

Mr Erdogan’s comparison of Zionism to fascism has, of course, drawn criticism from Israel and the US.

The Israeli government called the remark “a dark and mendacious statement the likes of which we thought had passed from the world”, and the US National Security spokesman, Tommy Vietor, said “the characterisation of Zionism as a crime against humanity… is offensive and wrong”.

We would expect Israel to try and deny their Zionist crimes, despite the mountain of evidence to support claims of their genocide policies and unwarranted acts of aggression – not much different to the fascist regimes the world has seen throughout history.

Perhaps Israel has forgotten how they slaughtered nine Turkish nationals who were on civilian ships trying to get aid through the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza in 2010 to help prevent a humanitarian crisis caused by Israel.

It is time more world leaders spoke out against the crimes of Israel and told the truth, instead of pandering to the Zionist delusion. As for Tommy, Vietor – he should go and find a dark corner to sit in for a few years and think about what ‘offensive’ means – truthful comments, or killing innocent civilians.
