Erdogan threatens to attack Israel if it wars with Lebanon or Hamas

In Lebanon on Thursday, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened that his country would not 'remain silent' in the event that Israel goes to war with Lebanon or Hamas.
"Does (Israel) think it can enter Lebanon with the most modern aircraft and tanks to kill women and children, and destroy schools and hospitals, and then expect us to remain silent?" Erdogan asked on the final day of a two-day visit to Lebanon.

"Does it think it can use the most modern weapons, phosphorus munitions and cluster bombs to kill children in Gaza and then expect us to remain silent? We will not be silent and we will support justice by all means available to us," he added.

During the course of his trip, Erdogan met with officials and visited the north and south of the country.

On Thursday in Beirut, hundreds of Lebanese of Armenian descent clashed with army troops during a protest over the Turkish prime minister's visit.

He was inaugurating a hospital in the southern port city of Sidon as hundreds of protesters gathered in the capital's Martyrs' Square.

When demonstrators tore up a large poster of Erdogan and pelted troops with rocks, security responded by beating up a number of them.

There were no reports of major injuries.
4% of the Lebanese population is Armenian. Turkey murdered 1.5 million Armenians in 1915 in attacks that most countries consider to be genocidal.

YNet adds:
Erdogan has said his country will not begin to restore relations with Israel until it apologises for its "savage attack" on the vessel.
Good luck with that.

Israel is not going to apologize for exercising its right of self-defense in the past or in the future.

And if Turkey wants a war with Israel, it will live to regret it.

Speaking of Turkey, check this out:


"The newspaper Milliyet wrote yesterday that foreigners could buy houses in Turkey, with just a passport, without question of reciprocity. This freedom also applies to citizens of Greece and Israel. However, it is no restriction on the land. Such may be purchased by citizens of countries other than Greece and Israel.

The purchase limit is that of 99 000 square meters. According to the report, shall not apply a limit to the citizens of Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Arab Gulf."

Erdogan is losing his mind. Arrogance comes before the fall.
