Erdogan Slams Egypt's Sisi as 'Illegitimate Tyrant' [Israel and Hamas]
Aritz Sheva Israel National News ^ | Saturday, July 19, 2014 | Elad Benari

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday slammed Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as an “illegitimate tyrant” and said Cairo could not be relied upon to negotiate a truce with Israel.

"Is Sisi a party (to a ceasefire)? Sisi is a tyrant himself," Erdogan was quoted by the AFP news agency as having told reporters.

"He is not different from the others," he said, adding that it was Egypt's current rulers who were blocking humanitarian aid channels to Gaza.

Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri responded and said Erdogan's comments were "unacceptable".

"They have no link with the events in Gaza and do not help in the protection of the people of Gaza," Shoukri said at a news conference in Cairo with his Italian counterpart Federica Mogherini.

Erdogan should rather push all the concerned parties for a ceasefire in Gaza, said Shoukri.

Erdogan, who portrays himself as the global Muslim leader who speaks up for Palestinian Arab rights, said supporting an Egyptian proposal for a ceasefire would mean legitimizing the administration in Egypt.

"Egypt is not a party ... They are trying to legitimize (the Sisi administration) in Egypt. It is not a legitimate administration. It is illegitimate," he said, lashing out at Israeli attempts to exclude Hamas.

"Hamas is a party there," declared Erdogan.

Turkey is trying DESPERATELY to be the "broker" in dealing with Hamas and a Israel! That's absolutely ridiculous because they're hosting Hamas on their territory, they're calling Israel's self-defense "genocide" and Turkey (along with Qatar) sabotaged the ceasefire that Israel accepted (but Hamas rejected). That was okay about the failed ceasefire, because it gave Israel more legitimacy and allowed them the time to go after the tunnels!

And, by the way, Egypt and Israel worked out the deal for the ceasefire ahead of time. It was a bad deal for Hamas.

This is rich. An Islamist state, not an Arab one, slams another Islamist state, an Arab one for being who they are--Islamists! Now you know why there can never be peace in the Middle East—it's the religion stupid! All the prophecies in the Bible concerning Israel are right before our eyes.

“Sisi’s Egypt has not forgiven Hamas for its alliance with Muslim Brotherhood”

And there you have it. Egypt would like to see Israel crush Hamas once and for all. So would I.

New battle lines being drawn are not as expected. The Obamabots have an outdated script about all this and will badly miscalculate.

Egypt was saved from the Islamists by the military. Maybe this is why Erdogan does not like Egypt. Tens of millions of Turks oppose Erdogan's Islamism.

I believe that the Turkish military had to save the secular Republic of Turkey from Erdogan and the Islamist Welfare Party in 1998. Erdogan was banned from politics. In 2002 the law was changed after the new AK Party won the most seats and got control of parliament, Erdogan then won a seat easily became prime minister replacing the AKP's Gul. BTW, for the record it's true that parliament refused permission for our troops to enter Iraq from Turkey.. but France was involved in that, there were threats from France that if Turkey let the U.S. use its territory Turkey would never, never be allowed in the E.U.

From an Internet source:

Mr Erdogan's first brush with the law came after the military coup of 1980, while he was working for Istanbul's transport authority. Mr Erdogan's boss, a retired colonel, told him to shave off his moustache. Mr Erdogan refused and had to quit the job. His political career in the Welfare Party, as the Islamists' party was known until it was banned in 1998, was developing fast. [As] mayor of Istanbul [his] decision to ban alcohol in city cafes did not please secularists . . . his pro-Islamist sympathies earned him a conviction in 1998 for inciting religious hatred. He had publicly read an Islamic poem including the lines: "The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers..." . . . because of his criminal record, he was barred from standing in elections or holding political office.

Interesting. A woman claiming to be the mother of one of the kids killed on the beach was on Israeli television today. When asked how she felt, she spewed out all those demands, pretty much word for word. Either she was a Pali plant, or those kids didn’t just “happen” to be playing soccer next to a site the Israelis attacked.

Turkey should be kicked out of Nato.

I remember when Turkey wouldn’t let Bush use air bases in Turkey to attack Iraq.

Turkey is a big supporter of Iran and its terror groups including Ham@ss.

Because of its Islamic radical ties, Turkey shouldn’t have access to Nato codes, secrets, and intel.

Also, Turkey is a bitter enemy of Israel. My choice would be to chose our friendship with a democracy rather than a human rights abuser like Turkey

Kick Turkey out of Nato.

Erdogan is an evil little turd. Anyone else who loves the Muslim Brotherhood is also an evil turd.

Speaking of such....the White House has developed a pungent odor of late....

This Ergodan character is one to watch. It’s interesting that Turkey has one such as this in charge right now. Walid Shoebat has a view of prophecy that this relates to, we will find out just how well it fits, perhaps in the near future.

Turkey used to be the model of a secularized, modernizing Muslim state. Now, it is slowly being taken over by Muslim extremists. Ataturk must be rolling in in his grave.

“All these demands were raised by the Hamas military wing two days after Israel began Operation Protective Edge, and repeated interminably ever since.”

Sounds like Hamas wants a “Comprehensive Peace Package” rather than a cease fire to allow people to get to safety (and for them to re-arm).

That was their call and Egypt was right to broker the way they did.

Typically you assume a homogenized religion that is not now or ever was uniform. That assumption is de rigor on Free Republic but is very incorrect.

To compound the assumption of a homogenized religion, you assume a homogenized ethnicity resulting from the common religion.
