Turkey Stands in Judgment of Israel?

Turkey, the country that murdered over one and a half million Armenians; the country that oppresses its Kurdish minority with extreme prejudice; the country that forcibly invaded and occupies almost half the country of Cyprus, thinks that it is in a position to lecture Israel on how to behave towards those firing missiles at it. "You are killing people" hot-head Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan told Israeli President Shimon Peres, without context, at the Davos Economic Forum in Switzerland. When an Israeli General pointed out the glaring hypocrisy, the Truks freaked out, and the Israelis bent over backwards to appease them by reprimanding the General for stating the obvious. Sometimes truth is an ugly thing.

    I found it particularly amusing at the time that the Turkish prime minister was greeted as a hero on return to Turkey for walking out in fury in the middle of an argument. Is that debate? All he did was cut and run.
