Turkish president issues threat over new government’s plans to apply sovereignty, calls Jerusalem a ‘red line’ for world’s Muslims

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened Israel over its new government’s plan to annex portions of the West Bank.

“We are witnessing a new plan of occupation and annexation by Israel that threatens Palestinian sovereignty and is contrary to international law,” Erdogan said in a video address late Sunday for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. “We won’t allow the transfer of Palestinian land to anyone.”

“Turkey is the only voice defending the Palestinians today,” Erdogan said in a televised address. “The world order has let down the Palestinians, and has not successfully brought peace, justice, security and order to this part of the world.”

War with the jive turkey? I don’t think so. All feathers, no meat.

Hi.

“He’ll need to take Syria first”

And Lebanon too. Gotta have the left flank and Med.

Kind of a slow replay of WWI, less Germany.

The Central Powers (more or less) reignite.

Actually it was much more direct.

Edward Teller and Robert Oppenheimer repeatedly met with David Ben Gurion and simply handed over plans for a nuclear power plant and both fission and fusion weapons.

All with a wink and a nod from the US Defense Department.

Little Trivia to add to your theory:

When Edward Teller designed “Iron Mike” (among the first thermonuclear weapons), he copied the structure of of the Mishkan erected by Moses and Bezalel in the desert.

Bit of an homage, I suspect.

I think it was actually called ‘Ivy Mike’.

I think you are correct.

I think there was a story circulating that had a mistaken name in it.
