Watch: Erdogan Calls Israel a War Criminal, Says Hamas is Not a Terrorist Organization

Erdogan blaming Israel doesn’t really mean anything. Every Moslem leader has said that.

He should be openly blaming the United States instead.

New York Post:

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blamed “the West” for what he called “the massacre unfolding in Gaza” at a huge pro-Palestine rally in Istanbul Saturday — despite his nation’s status as a US ally and member of NATO.

The main culprit behind the massacre unfolding in Gaza is the West,” Erdogan charged before an audience of several hundred thousand, according to the Times of Israel.

I reiterate that Hamas is not a terrorist organization,” Erdogan said in remarks broadcast by TRTWorld. “You, Israel, are an occupier, you are an invader … Israel, we will declare you as a war criminal to the world.”

His speech came hours after Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov accused Israel of “violating the norms of international humanitarian law” for its retaliation against Hamas’s bloody Oct. 7 attack on Israeli civilians.

It’s serious, I guess.

But he really has to say this. It’s impossible not to.

What is he going to do about the fact that he’s aligned himself with the people actually funding it?

That is the question.
