Turkish PM is a grotesque hypocrite

By now you know about the the anti-Israel tirade unleashed by the prime minister of "moderate" Turkey at Davos. His brave denunciation of the Zionazi killers has been heartily praised by the Hamas leadership.

It's ironic that he shows such moral outrage at Israel's bombing of Hamas, because it was only two weeks ago that his own government was boasting at having killed 700 Kurds in the year of 2008.

In the tradition of Middle East reporting, here's a picture of dead children to let you know which side are the barbarians and which side are the innocent victims. These are dead Kurdish children, and the Turks are the Nazi barbarians who killed them for fun:

When asked about his close relationship with Hamas, Turkish PM Tayyip Erdogan said:

"The world has not respected the political will of the Palestinian people. On the one hand, we defend democracy and we try our best to keep democracy in the Middle East, but on the other hand we do not respect the outcome of . . . the ballot box," he explained.

Has Turkey respected the political will of the Kurdish people? No, they have explicitly denied rights to their 17 million Kurdish citizens (often including the ability to SPEAK THEIR OWN LANGUAGE) since the birth of modern Turkey in the 1920's. In recent years they've made punitive bombing raids on Kurdish populations in northern Iraq, violating Iraq's sovereignty and murdering its citizens.

Here's a small sample:

Scores killed as Turkey attacks Kurds

Kurds killed in Turkey protests

Turkey claims to have killed 150 Kurdish rebels in Iraq

Turkey: 35 Kurdish rebels killed in clashes

Turkey: 25 Kurdish rebels killed in air strikes
Turkish military says 25 Kurdish rebels killed in air strikes in northern Iraq, many wounded

Here's a picture of a shameless hypocrite, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan:
