BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 A.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Muslim countries to support the State of Palestine, after dozens of protesters were killed by Israeli forces on the Gaza border this week, speaking at an extraordinary summit of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul on Friday.

“Men and women, young and old, the entire Muslim world is by your side. The al-Quds cause for which you laid your life, do not forget is all of our cause. We will never abandon you in your sacred struggle until the occupation is finished, until an independent and sovereign Palestinian State with al-Quds as its capital is established; we will continue to support you”, Erdogan said.

“Isn’t one of the Ten Commandments ‘thou shalt not kill’? Remember, as long as you stay quiet against your prison of Goliath, you will not be able to save yourselves from resembling him. And those of conscious among yourselves should tear down the roles of fear and should say stop to this order of oppression and massacres”, he stated.

On Monday, a total of 62 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,700 were wounded by Israeli forces during protests condemning the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem.

As self styled Sultan and head of the Islamic Ummah, Erdogan should know some history: After the Arab League started and lost the war of 1948 the Muslim countries evicted their Jews and confiscated their belongings and land. This evil dead proved fatal for the cause of the Palestinians. Because today 61% of the Israeli population are Mizrahim (Arab or Eastern Jews) they give Israel the number, the will power and the right to exist. The Mizrahim had to leave behind more than 100$ billion in valuables and real-estate at 100,000 square kilometres (four times the size of the state… Read more »

Absolutely historically accurate!
Iberian Jews had flee to North-Africa, they are the Sepharads. Only Algeria didn’t expelled/stole them in 1948 as it was French at the moment but although not having verified, I’m tempted to think that most of Algerian Sepharads if not all moved to France or Israel in 1962…

It is far from the time where muslims were united to retake Jerusalem from the catholics with their Salah Al Dine in 1187. Now they are completely weak, useless and divided and they can live only by the will of the kuffars world.

1 700 000 000 muslims VS 4 500 000 jews and the p***y jews beating Islam, the islamic ummah is now nothing but a s**t in decomposition. It is now the time to eradicate this cancer of humanity called Islam.

Except that Hamas recognised that at the date of the May 14th, 50 of these protesters killed were Hamas fighters.
Islamic Jihad also mourned 3 of their fighters!
Hamas also has set a PA system to incite protesters to take weapons with them and attack Israelis and pretended that Israeli were disbanding and pulling out while they actually added reinforcements!

Actually, the huge majority of people murdered by ISIS are Sunni… Majority of Syrian army is Sunni… Epic fail again… Strangely, Murica protects the al-Sauds’ so is the actual protector of Mecca… BTW … Even the Quran recognizes Allah gave the Land of Israel to the Jews. Quran 5.20-21 and 17.104 : Allah is a Zionist!!!! I like stating that as an Atheist, I know Q’ran better than an ISIS fanboy. Don’t worry, I know the Bible better than most of Christian fanatics, and also about other religions, that’s even why I know religions are all FRAUDS! e.g. as Jesus,… Read more »
