President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said, “Israel is a terrorist state. The person at the head of that state has become a source of rebellion against the Israeli people. Therefore, their death is near. They must receive the necessary punishment. Otherwise, people will not feel safe.”

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended the 62nd General embly held at the Headquarters of the National Turkish Student Union in Istanbul. Speaking at the General embly, Erdoğan said:
* “The entire western world and the Crusader imperialist structure are together. They keep saying: Hamas is Hamas. I told them this. So far, 13 thousand children, elderly and young people have been killed. Israel currently holds nearly 10 thousand hostages. As Germany, take the step of giving them away. Let’s make an effort to take what Hamas has. We will stand tall no matter what.
“OUR COUNTRY IS SURROUNDED BY A RING OF FIRE”
* Our country is literally surrounded by a ring of fire. Türkiye is growing militarily and politically. But remember, the Crusader-Crescent incident is not over. We will not allow them to get ahead of Turkey, the locomotive of the Turkish and Islamic world. We need to look at and evaluate our environment through the horizon of our heart’s geography. All issues in Syria, Iraq, Cyprus and the Caucasus are like this. This is the case with every issue regarding our 7 million citizens living scattered in different countries.
* Whoever tells us about Syria, Karabakh, Bosnia is hindering Turkey’s great march. It is a fact that there are many educated and ignorant people in our country. Every trap, scenario and game that wanted to divert Turkey from its course hit the wall of our nation’s faith and failed. Every attack we have been subjected to has always had a cost. We have been fighting for this in Istanbul since March 1994.
“WE FACED THE SECRET BLOCKAGES OF THE COUNTRIES WITH WHICH WE ARE IN THE SAME ALLIANCES”
* We faced secret blockades from countries with which we were supposedly in the same alliances. There are also internal extensions of these. Whatever project we implemented, we took these steps despite external and internal saboteurs. I have no doubt that our young people will take our country to the level it deserves. Türkiye must be strong.
* Syria is in shambles, Iraq is fragile, Libya could not maintain its integrity. Israel has started to provoke every state in the region. Islamic countries cannot even take a strong stance regarding Jerusalem. I regret to say that we could not achieve the unity of power achieved in the Gaza issue and Karabakh. If they are killing people in Gaza, it is not their power, it is the disorganization of Islamic countries.
“THERE SHOULD NOT BE PEOPLE WHO TALK LIKE NETANYAHU UNDER THE ROOF OF THIS PARLIAMENT”
* Unfortunately, the leader of a political party in our parliament speaks exactly like Netanyahu. Our nation will put this to good use. There should not be people who talk like Netanyahu under the roof of this parliament. Israel is a terrorist state. The head of that state has become a source of rebellion against the people of Israel. That’s why his death is near. It is imperative that they receive the appropriate punishment. Otherwise, people cannot feel safe. Like every broken order, it is inevitable that this order will change. We express this demand for change at every opportunity.
* We treat cancer patients after the aid we sent to Gaza. We are trying to recruit those to be treated. We will continue to keep Gaza alive. Our negotiations with Egypt continue. Every tear and blood shed in Gaza will not be in vain. I believe that MTTB will be the flag bearer of this.” (PHOENIX)
