Speaking to Saudi paper, Turkish PM criticizes Israel's nat'l heritage list.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday continued his verbal assault on Israel, according to Saudi paper Al Wattan, which quoted him as saying that that al Aksa Mosque, the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachels Tomb were not and never will be Jewish sites, but Islamic sites.
Erdogan was referring to Israels recent inclusion of the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachels Tomb on its national heritage list, but it was unclear why he mentioned the Aksa Mosque, since that site was not included.
Speaking to Palestinian journalists, Erdogan reportedly said, "Palestine [was] always at the top of Turkeys priorities." He expressed his support for the renewal of indirect talks between Israel and the Palestinians. Donning a cloak of pan-Islamic identity, Erdogan told Al Wattan that he loves my brothers in Fatah and my brothers in Hamas to the same degree, because they are my Muslim brothers and I cannot distinguish between them.
Turkeys prime minister began criticizing Israel in the wake of Operation Cast Lead last year, and has been punctilious in voicing his opinion on Israels actions since. In the recent past, he sharply criticized Israel during press conferences with the Lebanese prime minister and with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Turkey also recently distanced itself from the United States, withdrawing the ambassador from Washington after a congressional committee decided to recognize the killing of Armenians during World War I as a genocide. In a sign of tensions between Israel and Turkey, Ankara did not seek the help of Jewish lobbies in Washington, and these groups, which have traditionally advocated on behalf of Turkey, refrained this time from pressing Congress not to accept the resolution.

George Washington was Muslim, as was Henry VII and Julius Caesar, so this comes a no surprise to me.
Because he Hates Jooooooooo’s dats why. No intelligence in him just hate.
Israel had a chance in 1967 to bulldoze those hemorrhoids on their sacred Temple Mount, and failed to do so. Now they even let Muslim street thugs back to “worship” a mere 2 days after they threw stones at praying Jews. And Jews (and Christians)are STILL BANNED! It sure doesn’t look for the future of Israel right now.
They do recognize that survivors exist, just not that they killed millions. I suppose the Turks are ahead of the palestinians and Iranians in that regard, but not by much. As a political issue the Obama administration is doing the same thing the Bush administration did, appeasing a NATO ally. We'll go to war in support of Turkey, after all. I'm not sure it's an issue we needed to weigh in on since we weren't involved, but once it becomes an issue, be shouldn't join the community of deniers.
Higher Biblical criticism as official international policy, folks.
Thus speaketh the occupyers of the Hagai Sophia
Distinguishing Between Hamas and Fatah for Dummies:
Chapter 1: Hamas are the crazies who send everyone off to die, and kill anyone who doesn’t go.
Chapter 2: Fatah are the low-life thieves who send everyone off to die, and kill anyone who doesn’t go, and steal anything that isn’t nailed down.
RAGING IDIOCY STRIKES AGAIN.
Every single one of their holy sites, including Mecca.

Nothing new here. The Assyrian has always plagued the Children of Israel.
As to Rachels’ tomb in particular, maybe they’re just jealous because they can’t find Ishmael’s hole in the ground...and don’t even know his wife’s name!
Meanwhile, Ishmael’s hole in the sea was Moby Dick.
Once again, another Islamic State demonstrates that when it comes to “infidels” versus Muslims, you ALWAYS side with the Muslims, no matter how idiotic their claim.
Turkey is a nation of liars, phonys and false allies.
We should NOT rely on these Muslims to help us. We can trust NO Muslims and no Islamic states.
