War clouds continue to gather over the Middle East as Turkey’s insane dictator tells the Muslim world that Israel’s capital of Jerusalem “belongs” to Turkey.
It is true that for hundreds of years, the Ottoman Empire — Turkey’s former incarnation — controlled the lands that now make up the democratic country of Israel. And from 1516 to 1917, Israel’s capital, the City of Jerusalem, was part of the now deceased Ottoman Empire — a once powerful empire that extended outward from Turkey to control much of the Middle East and even parts of Western Europe.
Today, Turkey’s insane, dictatorial leader, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, thinks that he will be the man to re-constitute the Ottoman Empire. And in that vein, last week he told the Muslim world that Jerusalem “belongs” to him and he intends to take it.
Erdogan made his maniacal announcement on Thursday during an address to Turkish lawmakers in Ankara, Breitbart News reported.
In this city that we had to leave in tears during the First World War, it is still possible to come across traces of the Ottoman resistance. So Jerusalem is our city, a city from us. Our first qibla [direction of prayer in Islam] al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem are the symbolic mosques of our faith. In addition, this city is home to the holy places of Christianity and Judaism.
He went on to regurgitate the Muslim lie that Palestinians have lived in Jerusalem for “thousands of years.”
This is a common Muslim lie. There is not now, nor has there ever been any such people as the “Palestinians.” The name is a modern, political appellation, not the name of an ethnicity or nationality.
The increasingly violent and unpredictable Erdoğan fancies himself the return of the Mahdi, the Islamic living incarnation of the Muslim messiah and the leader of the Islamic caliphate and the Army of Islam. He imagines that he will be the one to destroy Russia, China, the U.S.A., and Israel and he is making moves to do so by bringing another Armenian genocide in the billowing Armenian/Azerbaijani war that is currently underway.
Erdoğan is warning the world that he fully intends to launch World War III. And everyone seems to be ignoring him.
