Egypt has ditched Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s latest attempt to show his love for Hamas by visiting Gaza, the Egyptian Youm7 website reported.
The military that threw out and then arrested Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi is staging an open war against the Brotherhood and its offspring Hamas, which it created decades ago.
Erdogan’s insistence on visiting Gaza – he has announced he would so at least half a dozen times the past two years – is another foreign policy blunder that has become his trademark since he ditched Israel as a friend.
He turned against Israel after the Operation Cast Lead counter-rocket attack maneuver more than four years ago and then ran into the waiting arms of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Bassar al-Assad. Erdogan made a U-turn after he belatedly realized the international community began isolating both countries.
