Erdogan: Zionism ‘Crime against Humanity’ (Video)

“Erdogan the Intelligent” calls Israel and Islamophobia crimes against humanity. The same wise man was a friend of Israel, ditched it, ran to Ahmadinejad and Assad, and dumped them also. Who’s next?

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan chose none other than the UN Alliance of Civilizations” on Wednesday to declare that Israel and Islamophobia both are a “crime against humanity.”

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon sat non-responsively behind Erdogan as he spoke in Vienna.

In a chilling reminder of the United Nations’ “Zionism is Racism” Resolution passed by the United Nations in 1975 and revoked 16 years later, Erdogan stated, “Just like Zionism, anti-Semitism and fascism, it becomes unavoidable that Islamophobia must be regarded as a crime against humanity.”

His speech was the keynote address at the 5th Global forum sponsored by the UN.

“We witness on a frequent basis, the shutting out and despisal [sic] of the other, whereas understanding the beliefs, culture and feelings of the other is what should be done. It has become inevitable for Islamophobia to be seen as a crime against humanity, just like Zionism, anti-Semitism and fascism,” he declared.

“None of the divine religions approves terror; and above all, Islam, which is a derivation of ‘silm,’ means peace. It is impossible for a religion of peace to encourage or approve of terrorism; we will never accept that. The Alliance of Civilizations is one of the most meaningful initiatives to remove prejudices and close the gap between sides.”

After his declaration that “understanding the beliefs, culture and feelings of the other” applies only to Islam and excludes Zionism, he mouthed off at the Western powers with a not-so-subtle swipe at the United States.

“We have to form an alliance between the permanent members of the UN Security Council. It is very difficult to reach a compromise at the Security Council. Whenever a member says no, the deal is done. This is something that needs to be addressed. Wasn’t the UN founded to maintain world peace? If so, the UN is in dire need of reforms.”

The United States, Britain, France, China and Russia are the five permanent members, and the United States has used its veto power, and the threat to veto, to block most anti-Israel resolutions.

His comments in Vienna came two days before he is to welcome U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to Turkey on Friday.

Without Israel, without Iran, without Syria, maybe he wants to ditch the United States, also, and declare Turkey a diplomatic island.

    what goes around comes around..this split man would split those who disagree with him, but he is not the voice of his people or nation. Things will return to civil after turks realize they have allowed a raving schizophrenic into their midst.

  2. Knock-knock! Moses was the first Ziionist. Hebron is the birthplace of Judaism. Jews have never stolen another peoples' land in all their 4,000 year history: how about you?

  3. Deniz Bey says:

    That is not true. We do support Erdogan. More then 54% of Turkey does support him. And i am glad that Erdogan told the world that zionism is a crime against humanity. Zionists are mostly racist and have a apartheid state.

    Zionist are butchers , they kill woman and children for fun. We fully support Erdogan and we are 100% against israel.

    Well with that attitude, I say liberate Kurdistan and how about offering a tearful apology for what you guys did to Armenians…

    How about STOP USING Kurds and Armenians to justify your crimes? I am part Kurdish and part Armenian. My peoples' suffering cannot and should not be exploited by the Zionist trash!
