Anti-Islamization Party Leader Marine le Pen of France expressed her anger at being banned from the January 11th rally but she may start seeing it as a blessing in disguise. Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu attended the rally and joined other world leaders in the front row by locking arms. Joining him in that row – seven leaders across – was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Now, before a week has passed since that rally, Davutoglu is comparing Netanyahu to the terrorists who attacked Charlie Hebdo.
According to a report from AFP:
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu Thursday accused his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu of committing “crimes against humanity” comparable to those of the Islamist gunmen behind the Paris attacks that left 17 dead.
Davutoglu’s comments risk enflaming a new row in the increasingly tense relationship after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blasted Netanyahu for “daring” to attend the weekend’s anti-terror solidarity march in Paris after the attacks.
“Netanyahu has committed crimes against humanity the same as those terrorists who carried out the Paris massacre,” he told reporters in Ankara in televised comments.
Davutoglu sniped that Netanyahu had looked “alone” at the Paris march against terrorism, where the Turkish and Israeli prime ministers had joined other world leaders in a show of solidarity.
A statement by the Turkish presidency said Netanyahu had staged “a miserable political show” by attending the rally and had sought to exploit the event for “his own political purposes.”
Moments like these are rife with irony and hidden truths. By standing with Netanyahu, Davutoglu admitted he was showing solidarity with someone he viewed as being on par with the terrorists. If that’s true, would it not stand to reason that Davutoglu would be willing to show solidarity with the terrorists too?
Moreover, the comments made by Davutoglu about Netanyahu looking “alone” at the rally and was trying to exploit the event was 100% projection. It is Turkey that seeks to use the “Istanbul Process” to get western nations to criminalize any and all criticism of Islam. As Shoebat.com reported, while in Brussels, Davutoglu said that his country DOES NOT permit criticism of Mohammed. In reality, it was Davutoglu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas who looked the most out of place but the media showed ZERO interest in pointing this out.
In responding to Davutoglu’s comments, Netanyahu rightly pointed out that NOT ONE other world leader repudiated them. What’s that saying about silence equaling complicity? By extension, the world leaders who stood arm in arm with Netanyahu and Davutoglu are already showing division with their silence. In fact, there silence shows deference to Davutoglu’s comparison.
In short, the Paris rally is slowly being revealed for the sham that it was.
