Believe it or not, and I do believe Hurriyet - a far as I am ready to believe any news source. Here is their story:
“This is what has been implemented in Egypt. Who is behind this? Israel. We have evidence,” the prime minister said, citing a meeting between a French intellectual and the Israeli justice minister in France before the 2011 elections.Yep. He nailed it. He nailed the Jooz, so to say. Here is the incriminating clip:
Erdoğan said the intellectual was Jewish. “‘The Muslim Brotherhood will not be in power even if they win the elections. Because democracy is not the ballot box’: This is what he said at that time,” Erdoğan said.
Erdoğan refers to Bernard-Henri Levy: Claim
According to claims, Erdoğan was referring to a video "available on the Internet" of a press conference by Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and French philosopher and author Bernard-Henri Levy.
A source also told the Associated Press that as far as he knew, that was the only evidence of the claim. The official spoke on condition of anonymity, in line with government rules that bar him from speaking to reporters without prior authorization.
What can I say? That I am still in shock, but not by that latest outbreak of Erdogan's mental disease. The man is beyond certifiable. He is beyond simply meshuggener. He is so bonkers, unglued, batty, haywire, flipped out and demented that his craziness defies all these terms. He could be used as the most efficient and energy saving tool for old carpets removal in your house. He will chew through them in a jiffy, I can assure you. On the other hand I would easily understand the Turkish carpet shop owners if they bar Erdogan from entering their fine establishments...
But this is not what shocks me. I still cannot understand what the heck did Obama do to Bibi to make him agree to that phone call. I mean rapprochement, good vibes and all that - it is totally cool with me. But with this character at the helm? What kind of incentive - or, to put it bluntly, physical atrocity had POTUS applied to Bibi?
You tell me.
Update. Just recalled: Bibi had a hernia surgery recently. Any link to that Obama's visit and my question? Hm...
