Great Moments In The History Of Moderate Islam
Turkish PM Erdogan: Bar Israel from UN over Gaza offensive
Turkey's prime minister on Friday said Israel should be barred from the United Nations while it ignores the body's calls to stop fighting in Gaza.
"How is such a country, which does not implement resolutions of the UN
Security Council, allowed to enter through the gates of the UN (headquarters)?" Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.Erdogan accused Israel of attacking civilians under the pretext of targeting the Islamic militant group of Hamas.
Erdogan has previously defended his outspoken criticism of Israel's Gaza offensive, saying it did not mean he was anti-Semitic. However, the Turkish prime minister also remarked that the "Jewish-backed media" was falsely suggesting that Hamas uses civilians as human shields in the Gaza Strip.
One would be tempted to question whether there are any moderate Muslims at all.
