He commented that everything is “allowed” to Israel, including threats to drop atomic bombs on women, children and the elderly.
“The shame of the Holocaust has gripped European leaders. Not only officials, but also Western intellectuals, journalistic organizations and human rights organizations are trying to justify Israel. The Israeli administration is also using the Holocaust as a shield for attacks that amount to genocide against the Palestinians,” Erdogan said after of the Government session, Anadolia agency reports.
He warned that Israel was trying to break the resilience of Gazans by deliberately bombing hospitals in the besieged enclave.
“Israel and its supporters who use all modern means of war against children, women, and the elderly will be judged in the conscience of humanity,” the Turkish leader said, adding that since the beginning of the conflict in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave “has experienced crimes and cruelty similar to those of the medieval Crusades and World War II”.
Erdogan pointed out that Turkey is “the only country” that Israel cannot call anti-Semitic.
“You cannot see such a stain of shame in Turkey’s past. If we do not react to what is happening in Gaza, we will not be able to prevent the occupying fanaticism from reaching our countries tomorrow,” he said.
He reiterated that he supports the people of Gaza who are struggling to survive “under the immoral and heinous” attacks of Israel and added that about 800 tons of humanitarian aid was sent to Egypt from Turkey.
After the only oncology hospital in Gaza was hit, Erdogan stated that a total of 88 patients had been transferred to Turkey.
