Responding To Gaza Crackdown, Turkey Recalls Ambassadors From Israel And US

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is rescinding Turkish ambassadors from Tel Aviv and Washington D.C. This is believed to be retaliation for the crackdown on protesters in Gaza yesterday where 50 Palestinians were gunned down at the Israel-Gaza border. “Israel is wreaking state terror. Israel is a terror state,” Erdogan said to Turkish students in London. “What Israel has done is a genocide. I condemn this humanitarian drama, the genocide, from whichever side it comes, Israel or America.” “Turkey will react to this harshly,” Erdogan added. This follows surprising news where the Turks endorsed Iran following the termination of a controversial… Keep Reading

Turkey Sides With Iran In Syrian Proxy War, Putting US Forces In Difficult Situation

Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been tough to predict during his many years in power. He has encouraged the spread of Islam throughout the West and even been accused of doing business with ISIS, and now he is apparently currying favor with Iran as Turkey has announced their support of the Iranian regime in the Syrian proxy war that is currently being waged. This puts crucial US allies on both sides of the conflict. Following the announcement that Trump was terminating the Iran deal, Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said: “We will continue to have trade with Iran while… Keep Reading
