Mayor of Ankara, Melih Gökçek, says Mossad was behind the Paris attacks.
Islamist Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, strongly criticized on Monday the “hypocrisy” of the West after the attack on the workers of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket in Paris because, in his view, “Muslims are being played with and nothing is being done against Islamophobia.
He also railed against the organizers of the protest march in Paris on Sunday for hosting Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu, and for remaining silent before the massacres in Syria. In a sense, Erdogan is right.
An inquisitor like France marches on the street to demand an end to violence while the French government has supported the killings of thousands of Muslims all over the Middle East.
However, what Erdogan is asking is that people who speak negatively against Islam must be censored, much like David Cameron has pledged to do in Britain. Cameron promised he would ban the use of two chat platforms, a practice unheard of in the West.
“For us as Muslims and representatives of a religion of peace, this slaughter, is a terrorist action. You can not see it positively.”
This we have said and have communicated it to French President, Francois Hollande. But there are some truths we must also take into account,” Erdogan said at a hearing Monday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas:
“The authors of this action is clear who they are and they are French. But although the authors of this slaughter are French, those to blame are the Muslims. That is very significant “
“The hypocrisy of the West is clear. We, as Muslims, have never supported terrorism. But after these massacres racism appears and we are blamed. And after this hate speech, Islamophobia is not denounced”, said the Turkish president, calling on the European authorities to “take action” against attacks on mosques which are taking place since the attack on Charlie Hebdo.
Erdogan criticized Netanyahu’s presence at the head of the Paris demonstration -very near Palestine’s Abbas: “How can a man who has killed 25,000 people in Gaza by state terrorism has a straight face to appear at the rally?”
The Turkish government has criticized the recent Israeli offensive on Gaza and the attack in 2010 at the so-called Freedom Flotilla, attacked by special forces of the Jewish state, which took the lives of 9 Turkish people. Strangely, the Turkish-Israeli Defence trade has continued despite this alleged political friction. In other words, Israel and Turkey continue to buy and sell weapons from each other while Erdogan argues against Israreli abuses in Gaza.
Erdogan criticized the world’s silence before the massacres in Syria, where do one “blinked” despite the murder of 350,000 people and the fact that “Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan have to take care of most refugees.”
The Turkish President also charged against the French authorities for not being able to prevent terrorist attacks: “These French citizens have spent 16 months in prison. Then they get out and the secret services do not investigate them? Do not follow them, observe what they do? “. He concluded that this shows that some actors “are playing dirty with the Muslim world“.
Although Erdogan condemned the bombings in France he also said that action needs to be taken against “whoever committed the crime” which has aided the theory held among pro-government media and Islamists in Turkey, where it is pointed out that the Pris attack was an orchestrated event to damage the image of Muslims.
The mayor of Ankara, Melih Gökçek, the ruling Islamist group, accused the Israeli secret services of having organized the attack. “After this kind of action there is no doubt that Mossad was involved. Mossad is thereby intending to show Islam as the enemy.”
Since this attack, about 50 mosques have been attacked in several places, but the world does not pay attention to these incidents. Israel intends to avoid the recognition of Palestine and intimidate Muslims“, said Gökçek during a Youth Congress of the Justice and Development Party (AKP).
