Guess who was missing when Erdogan spoke at the UN

When Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan addressed the UN General Assembly last Thursday, there were a few people missing: The Arabs (Hat Tip: Daily Alert).
While Prime Minister Erdoğan addressed the U.N. General Assembly, I looked to see who was present from other countries.

I was especially looking for Palestinian head of state Mahmoud Abbas and the leaders of some Arab countries. I am sure most had some other appointments. Yet it is usually known who will speak at what time in the U.N.

If the leader of a country who said he would “support you to the end,” if that person has changed his or her general attitude in a dramatic way and if it he or she the leader of a country like Turkey, which has the appeal to both the Arab streets and the Palestinian people, than the minimum courtesy required would be to go to the General Assembly and listen to him speak.

None of them was there and this shows us some realities.

The Arab people like us. But today, the policies of current rulers of the Arab countries are based on competing with each other and hampering each other. We should not take those who are giving us a pat on the shoulder too serious. Our politics should reflect our interests. There should be no room for emotions.

In the end I understood that I was looking for Abbas and other Arab leaders in vain.
Anyone still think Erdogan's support for the 'Palestinians' doesn't stem from the fact that he is an anti-Semite?
