'Turkey's policies brought Israel to its knees'

Ankara's Foreign Minister Ahmet
Davutoglu boasts Turkey's firm Middle East policies have isolate Israel even
further both regionally and internationally

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Friday that Turkey's recent, firm policies in the
Middle East "have brought Israel to its knees" and isolated the Jewish state both regionally and
internationally.
According to the Turkish website Today's Zaman, Davutoglu's statement, made
before the Turkish Parliament, was meant to counter claims by the opposition
suggesting that Turkey's foreign policy was dependent on Western countries, and that
Turkey's foreign policy is shifting towards the East.
Davutoglu insisted that Turkey's foreign policy was independent, especially
in regards to the recent revolutions noted among its Arab and North African
allies.
Turkey "has never remained silent in the face of oppression," he said.
"It is our policies in the region which have brought Israel to its knees before
us... We have always sided with people who demand democracy, not with
authoritarian and oppressive regimes."


Davutoglu also stressed that Turkey has "zero problems" with its
neighbors – despite the opposition's criticism of the statement's unrealistic
nature; especially considering Ankara's recent tensions with Syria.



He said that the Turkish government was "cannot remain silent if one of
our neighbors oppresses its people."

Relations
between Turkey and Israel, two close US allies in the Middle East, have
soured since the 2010 raid on a Turkish-sponsored Gaza-bound flotilla, which left nine Turks dead.


Turkey has demanded compensation and an apology from Israel. Jerusalem
refuses to comply. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4162532,00.html

    • @USA1 I hope you wouldn't throw this staunch US ally under the bus...or is it just Israel that pulls on the heart strings.

      I guess being the only Muslim Democracy, supporting the West in NATO against the Soviets for decades, hosting missile defence against Iran goes nowhere once the Israelis are in the mix Lol

      Turkey hasn't acted like a ally of the USA since the Cuban Missile Crisis.

      Polls taken indicate that they are exceedingly anti-American also.

      Include the facts that Turkey 1) refuses to admit it's part in genocide, 2) destroys Christian churches, 3) is guilty of human rights violations, 4) is becoming more radicalized every day, and 5) whose PM told German Turks not to learn German and to demand their Islamic rights...and yeah, I'm no big fan of Turkey.

    • @USA1 Same Turkey 1) Was instrumental in getting Gilad Shalit freed 2) As one accolades for advances in human rights repeatedly 3)Is one of the only Muslim countries to provide support in Afghan 4) Like I said, most importantly has agreed to host the US missile defence bases (massive sign of trust on the Americans part)

      And I come to the conclusion you're just trying not to like them.
      As none of the examples you gave represent any kind of threat to US interests, I guess Israel's got to be the More..

  • USA must stop supporting Israel in its plan to eradicate the palestinians from their lands only then can there be a peace talk with 2 sides being equal.

    That goes without saying the arabs also must stop pressing Israel and give it reasons to be afraid for its survival. If you don't give quarters to a battered enemy it will fight to the death and you ALSO will take losses in the process.

    What the fuck... enough with this shit in Middle East, P E A C E for everyone and everywhere goddamn it.

      Sorry, but there is no such thins as a distinct Palestinian people.
      They just do not exist!


      a Palestinian leader named Zuheir Mohsen said:
      The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a More..

      Even in the face of your ignorance on the illegal occupation of Palestine by Israel you just keep blathering nonesense.

      Your nick brings -1215.

      I am sure when you're down to -10.000 you will say the world is anti-israel. You just don't get it you're a moron, Freejay.
      Not your fault.
