In an interview recorded Wednesday with CNNs Becky Anderson (@beckycnn), Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of being a terror state, saying that the countrys operation in Gaza was creating a wave of terror.
Erdogan also denied that the governments of Turkey or Qatar were involved in the funding of Hamas terrorist activities, saying the only support his country is offering to the people of Gaza is humanitarian.
Qatars cooperation with Turkey has always been to be on the side of the persecuted and to support them through humanitarian aid. This is whats being done.

Every nation has a right to self-defense. If people dont like how Israel carries that out, then maybe people shouldnt attack Israel.
This guy is deranged, but then again every Muslim who becomes a head of state with a little power “suddenly” becomes so.
In Qatari-Backed Trip, UN s Ban Ki-moon Laid Low by Israels Peres
Israeli President Shimon Peres on Wednesday told United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that Israel would not stand by while Qatar, which paid for the UN officials private flight to the Middle East, continued to finance Hamas militants, and took Ban to task for the two UN-run schools found to be housing Hamas rockets in Gaza.
In his last full day in office, Peres, a historically dovish leader, struck a defiant tone in a statement delivered to the media after meeting Ban at the Presidents Residence, in Jerusalem.
Qatar does not have the right to send money for rockets and tunnels which are fired at innocent civilians, Peres said. Their funding of terror the must stop.
Newsweeks Benny Avni reported on Monday that the Qatari government paid for the UN Secretary Generals flight through the Middle East, where his first stop on Sunday was Doha, where he denounced Israels Operation Protective Edges battle in Shujaiya, a border city that had been overrun by competing Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad fighters, and where rockets were hidden in mosques, hospitals, playgrounds and cemeteries connected by tunnels used to infiltrate the Israeli border and attack Kibbutz Nahal Oz a mile away.
US blocked Qatari funds intended for Hamas employee
The United States has blocked the transfer of Qatari funds earmarked for the salaries of civil servants hired by Hamas in Gaza, The Times of Israel has learned.
A diplomatic source in the Gulf state, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that Qatar had transferred hundreds of millions of dollars to Arab Bank for the salaries of some 44,000 Hamas civil servants. Those civil servants employed by Hamas in Gaza since its takeover of the Strip in 2007 were rendered jobless by the unity agreement with Fatah last month.
But the money was never processed by Arab Bank and delivered to Hamas, the source told The Times of Israel, due to pressure from the Americans, who consider Hamas a terror organization.
This is strange, since funds from Qatar have never been blocked in the past, the source said, referring to the $400 million aid package pledged by Qatari ruler Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa during his visit to Gaza in October 2012.
Hamass deputy political bureau chief Moussa Abu Marzouk lambasted Arab Bank for neglecting to process the funds in comments posted on his Facebook page June 28.
Turkey is lecturing us now?
Turkey, the country that created the world’s first modern genocide? Massacring 1.5 million innocent people?
And they’re giving lectures now?
Sounds like jealousy to me.
Ankara not only adopted a more belligerent approach to Cyprus
but recklessly inserted itself in such sensitive topics as the Iranian nuclear buildup and the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Most surprising of all has been its backing for IHH, a domestic Turkish "charity"
with documented ties to Al-Qaeda.
Erdogan has gratuitously discarded his carefully crafted image of a pro-Western "Muslim democrat,"
making it far easier to treat him as the Tehran-Damascus ally that he is."
Post; thread BUMP!
Ya ready for that bitter cup, Edrogan?
Yet Israeli’s still love traveling to Turkey, will never understand why..its not even a nice country to visit(At least in my opinion) Israel should boycott Turkey..F them
