Keberanian PM Turki, Erdogan, Mengecam Presiden Israel Shimon Peres
- Assalamu'alaikum wr wb,
Alhamdulillah PM Turki Erdogan berani mengecam
presiden Israel Shimon Peres di pertemuan Forum
Ekonomi Dunia di Davos.
Mudah2an pemimpin negara2 Islam lainnya berani
bersikap seperti Erdogan dan bersatu untuk mengangkat
satu pemimpin yang melindungi seluruh negara2 Islam
dalam satu khilafah. Dengan satu khilafah diharap
subversi yang dilakukan AS dan Israel untuk
menjatuhkan pemimpin negara2 Islam yang tidak bisa
dijadikan boneka bisa dicegah.
Turkish PM welcomed home after Gaza spat in Davos
DAVOS, Switzerland – Turkey's prime minister
received a hero's welcome home Friday after he
reproached Israel's president over the Gaza offensive
and stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was greeted by a
jubilant crowd of more than 5,000 supporters, many
waving Turkish and Palestinian flags, who flooded
Istanbul's airport when his plane touched down about 2
Some outside of the airport gate held banners that
applauded his Palestinian stance in Davos. "The
conqueror of Davos," one banner read.
Hours earlier, the Turkish leader and Israeli
President Shimon Peres raised their voices and traded
accusations in front of a packed audience at a World
Economic Forum panel. Peres was passionate in his
defense of Israel's three-week offensive against Hamas
militants, launched in reaction to eight years of
rocket fire aimed at Israeli territory.
As he spoke, Peres often turned toward Erdogan, who in
his remarks had criticized the Israeli blockade of
Gaza, saying it was an "open air prison, isolated from
the rest of the world" and referred to the Palestinian
death toll of about 1,300, more than half of those
civilians. Thirteen Israelis also died.
"Why did they fire rockets? There was no siege against
Gaza," Peres said, his voice rising in emotion. "Why
did they fight us, what did they want? There was never
a day of starvation in Gaza."
Erdogan was angry when a panel moderator cut off his
remarks in response to an impassioned monologue by
Peres defending Israel's offensive against the Hamas
rulers of Gaza.
"I find it very sad that people applaud what you
said," Erdogan said. "You killed people. And I think
that it is very wrong."
Peres' and Erdogan's raised voices were highly unusual
at the elite gathering of corporate and world leaders,
which is usually marked by polite dialogue.
The angry exchange followed an hour-long debate at the
forum attended by world leaders in Davos. Erdogan
tried to rebut Peres as the discussion was ending,
asking the moderator, Washington Post columnist David
Ignatius, to let him speak once more.
"You kill people," Erdogan told the 85-year-old
Israeli leader. "I remember the children who died on
beaches. I remember two former prime ministers who
said they felt very happy when they were able to enter
Palestine on tanks."
When Erdogan was asked to stop, he angrily stalked
off, leaving fellow panelists U.N. Secretary-General
Ban-Ki moon and Arab League Secretary Amr Moussa.
"When it comes to killing, you know it too well," the
Turkish leader said.
When the moderator tried to cut short Erdogan's
remarks, saying it was past time to adjourn for
dinner, he answered in frustration, "Don't interrupt
me. You are not allowing me to speak."
He then said: "I will not come to Davos again."
In brief comments at Istanbul's airport, Erdogan said
he had been insulted. "My responsibility is to protect
the honor of the Turkish nation." He added that Peres
called him before he left Davos and expressed his
In Jerusalem, Peres' office confirmed that the two men
spoke on the phone shortly after the incident, a
conversation his office described as "positive" but
during which Peres did not apologize.
The heated debate with Israel and Turkey at the center
was significant because of the key role Turkey has
played as a moderator between Israel and Syria.
During the debate, Erdogan appeared to express a sense
of disappointment when he recounted how he had met
with the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert days
before the offensive, and believed they were close to
reaching terms for a face-to-face meeting with Syrian
Obama's new Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, will be in
Turkey for talks Sunday.
Ultimately, Erdogan stressed he left not because of a
dispute with Peres but because he was not given time
to respond to the Israeli leader's remarks. Erdogan
also complained that Peres had 25 minutes while he was
only given 12 minutes.
"I did not target at all in any way the Israeli
people, President Peres, or the Jewish people,"
Erdogan told a news conference afterward.
"I am a prime minister, a leader who has specifically
expressly stated that anti-Semitism is a crime against
humanity," he said.
Moussa, a former Egyptian foreign minister, said
Erdogan's action was understandable.
"Mr. Erdogan said what he wanted to say and then he
left. That's all. He was right." Of Israel, he said,
"They don't listen."
Erdogan brushed past reporters outside the hall. His
wife appeared upset. "All Peres said was a lie. It was
unacceptable," she said, eyes glistening.
"I have know Shimon Peres for many years and I also
know Erdogan. I have never seen Shimon Peres so
passionate as he was today. I think he felt Israel was
being attacked by so many in the international
community. He felt isolated," said former Norwegian
Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik.
"I was very sad that Erdogan left. This was an
expression of how difficult this situation is."
