On a visit to Lebanon, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan denounced Israel (again).
Turkey’s prime minister called on Israel to apologize for its mistakes in the region in a speech he gave in Lebanon on Wednesday, adding Turkey would do its best to avert a fresh armed flare-up in Lebanon.
“We will go on to raise our voice against those massacring innocent people and children. We will call a killer a killer when needed,” Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said at the Lebanese Turkmen village Kouachra, near the Lebanese capital of Beirut.
Meanwhile, CBC News has produced an exhaustive report on the UN’s abject connivance in covering up the identities of the Hezbollah assassination squad responsible for the most spectacular killing in Lebanon’s modern history, the murder of Rafiq Hariri on Feb. 14, 2005.
And Erdogan’s response to that undoubted killing?
Erdogan, during a speech in northern Lebanon, said that if Hizbullah were found guilty of the Hariri assassination, it would impact the entire region.
He suggested that the [investigating] tribunal delay releasing its findings for another year.
