Next thing you know he’ll be claiming Judea as a historic Arab homeland. Oh wait, the “Palestinians” have already claimed that.
(JPost) Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday continued his verbal assault on Israel, according to Saudi paper Al Wattan, which quoted him as saying that that al Aksa Mosque, the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb “were not and never will be Jewish sites, but Islamic sites.”
Erdogan was referring to Israel’s recent inclusion of the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb on its national heritage list, but it was unclear why he mentioned the Aksa Mosque, since that site was not included.
After Erdogan’s continuous verbal attacks on US and Israel, Turkey is still being called America’s and Israel’s “traditional ally”.
