“THEY ARE SILENTLY WATCHING THE KILLING OF CHILDREN”
President and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gave remarkable messages at the Great Istanbul rally held in Istanbul last weekend.
“Those who shed crocodile tears yesterday for the civilians murdered in the Ukrainian-Russian War are silently watching the deaths of thousands of innocent children today,” said President Erdoğan, adding: “You shed tears for those who died in Ukraine, but who are these babies who died in Gaza? Why don’t you speak up? O West, I am calling out to you, do you want to start a crescent-crusade struggle again? If you are in such an effort, know that this nation is not dead, this nation is standing tall. “In the same way, with the same determination, we are in the Middle East what we are in Libya and Karabakh,” he said.
“COMING FROM TEN THOUSANDS OF KILOMETERS AWAY…”
President Erdoğan stated that this picture alone tells them a lot and that they have experienced hypocrisy, this double standard, this unconscionable and immoral discrimination many times in the attacks of PKK, ISIS and FETO, and said: “They came from tens of thousands of kilometers away under the pretext of fighting against terrorism, Those who brutally murdered millions of people did not want to give us the right to protect our own borders, our own homeland, and our own citizens. Now I’m speaking clearly; Whatever we have done and achieved in the fight against terrorism, especially in the last ten years, we have achieved despite these. “Hopefully, from now on, we will continue to move forward on the path we have drawn, with the motto ‘We can come suddenly one night’,” he said.
