Asks Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu:
"Why didn't the Syrian Army, which has been attacking its own innocent people for 22 months now from the air with jets and by land with tanks and artillery fire, respond to Israel's operation? Why can't al-Assad, who gave order to fire SCUD missiles at Aleppo, do anything against Israel?" Davutoğlu said. Davutoğlu said they did not know the precise circumstances of the raid but added that Turkey would not stay unresponsive to an Israeli attack against any Muslim country.Hm... definitely an interesting question that.
Let me see: could it be for the same reason one large Muslim country I wouldn't mention keeps threatening the Syrian bloody regime for 22 months, while the said regime kills tens of thousands of its own? In fact, doing nothing about it for these 22 months, aside of foaming at the mouth?
Cause foaming is cheap, Mr Davutoğlu. And, taking into account the great achievements of your country on the international scene, you have learned it well from your boss. So good, in fact, that you better leave throwing pebbles to someone else.
