Turkey in Efenem’s Heart

Turkish PM Erdogan slams Israel’s Simon Peres and storms out of Davos

Turkey’s PM has received a hero’s welcome on his return to Istanbul after he stormed out of a debate about Gaza at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan had reacted angrily when he was refused the chance to respond to Israeli President Shimon Peres’ defence of the operation Thousands of people turned out in the city to greet Mr Erdogan’s plane.

He told them Mr Peres’ language and tone had been unacceptable, so he acted to stand up for Turkish honour. “I only know that I have to protect the honour of Turkey and Turkish people,” said Mr Erdogan.

“I am not a chief of a tribe. I am the prime minister of Turkey. I have to do what I have to do.”

The BBC’s Sarah Rainsford in Istanbul said there had been huge anger in Turkey at Israel’s operation in Gaza and there now appears to be widespread support for Mr Erdogan’s actions in Davos. Huge crowds were waiting at Istanbul airport in the early hours of the morning, with many people waving Turkish and Palestinian flags.

 The Turkish PM stressed later that he had left the debate not because of his disagreements with Mr Peres but because he had been given much less time to speak than the Israeli leader.

One thought on “Turkey in Efenem’s Heart

  1. One act of bravery. The world needs more leaders like him. If the other world leaders had balls to stand up to such heinous crimes committed by Israelis, then it would have been a such a wonderful scenario in Davos.
