Turkish President Recep Erdogan attacks Israel Verbally – “Necessity to prevent the Judaization of Jerusalem.”

Posted By Keith Davies.

Recep Erdogan the defacto dictator of Turkey and the self proclaimed champion of the “restored Ottoman Empire” continues his brazen verbal rhetoric about his desires on Jerusalem for the Muslims. He obviously has not read Zacheriah 12

The burden[a] of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: 2 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. 3 And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. 4 In that day,” says the Lord, “I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness; I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. 5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem are my strength in the Lord of hosts, their God.’ 6 In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a firepan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding peoples on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place—Jerusalem……….

    Daniel 11:28 (NIV)
    28 The king of the North will return to his own country with great wealth, but
    his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take action against it and then return to his own country.

    • And what is the Holy covenant Mart? And who will collaborate with Antichrist?

      • Only one Holy covenant remains.

      Excellent link.
      Arrogance and confusion go together like two peas in a pod. ‘Why are you afraid of freedom of faith if you believe in your faith?’ This question from the president of Turkey!

      • Stirring up not just Muslims but other people of faith. Do you see the cunningness?

        • PaulF

          That word ‘faith’ should only ever be used in a biblical context. Calling demonic religions ‘faiths’ is a deception. They never even thought of calling themselves ‘faiths’ until all-religion-goodists in the post Christian world taught them to do it.

    O dear! I feel for those deluded people who have Jerusalem in their sights. They have no idea how terrible their defeat will be.
    ‘For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance,
    and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion.’
    – Isaiah 34:8
    Such pinpoint accuracy in the biblical prophecies. ‘The controversy of Zion.’

      You can add: Jer 49:7-22 (verse 10: “But I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself: his seed is spoiled, and his brethren, and his neighbours, and he is not.”) Also, Ez 25:12-14 “Thus saith the Lord God; Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them; Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword. And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord God.”
      On the word “controversy”, I think the Hebrew is “l’ rib” suggesting God is prosecuting a lawsuit against them (others have translated this as the “cause”). I really like the use of “controversy” because it suggests a suit and a countersuit (and we know which side wins). God may be slow, but He is never late.

    Another mad rant from Erdogan, deliberately stirring up trouble in Jerusalem. On Monday Turkish ambassador Okem was summoned to the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem over the anti-Israel diatribe delivered by Erdogan on Monday. Erdogan called on Muslims to flock to Al Aqsa Temple Mount, and he declared that “every day Jerusalem is under Israeli occupation is an insult to us,”

  • lewjac3

    This gangster is delusional, muslims that hate will never fulfill their goals in Israel.

    And of course the UN will do nothing to impose sanctions or start a campaign of boycotting Turkey and Turkish goods for this purely vile anti-Semitic vitriol. No leftist anti-Semite islamic terror enabling islamophile would condemn this as well.

    But God forbid, should Bibi Netanyahu say that Turkey is responsible for the million and a half genocidal deaths of Armenians, there will be swift action to condemn Israel’s government for her “islamophobia”.

      Well, the UN has the legacy of Swedish Lutheran Dag Hammarskjöld who seemed enamored of Sufi/Muslim Rumi, Zoroastrianism, an Indian yogi, and Chinese mysticism, and created the strange meditation room (search for images) which the Muslims shun (although it has their crescent moon), and, “By contrast, Christians, Jews, Hindus, and members of other faiths do not hold their regular services at the UN.” http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/02/17/muslim-prayers-un-general-assembly/

      • Raph Sebastian

        Anything that flirts with sufism or hindu yoga or paganism of Zoroastra or the i-ching and coupled with the heresies of Luther on top of that deserves the worse kinds of judgments upon them. These are the same morons that push the “coexist” horse manure.

        May they all burn in hell.

        • ace

          I mostly agree, but may they all come to repentance, and if not, then they will be judged by what they’ve done. Jesus received sinners and ate with them and told us “…there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” Even so, my first reaction is often yours, and I have to keep reminding myself to put on the mind of Christ, that I will have to give account for careless words uttered, and to work out my salvation in fear and trembling…

          • Raph Sebastian

            Indeed, the key is repentance and confession and absolution. There is no two ways about it. The LORD as you have rightly cited did indeed sit down with sinners of the worse kind and broke bread with them. And indeed the heavens will rejoice at that moment, but they need to come to repentance as He prescribed.

            Those who blaspheme and encourage heresy deserve nothing less than my reactions simply because their words and deeds have consequences, there would be many that would fall for it and then inadvertently condemn themselves for believing those things while the perpetrators of the heresy may repent those who still followed and heard their words now face that prospect of damnation.

            I know that the Church teaches that all are deserving of salvation for the LORD died for the salvation of mankind and mankind this even includes atheists, gnostics, sophists, Protestants, Jews, muslims, hindus, taosists, buddhists, pagans and agnostics but they need to come to the Living God first.

            Dear brother, I know I shall be accountable for my careless words, but sometimes one cannot sugar coat everything for the sake of the feelings of others. When softly softly doesn’t work anymore, you have to break out the sledgehammer. And indeed once again, I do work my salvation out in fear and trembling as you do. Pax tecum.

          • ace

            Amen. I often find that after I have confessed a sin and repented, the Holy Spirit will call to mind other sins which attach to the words or action, such as leading people astray or wounding them, even without intent (which I might have anticipated, if not for being so self-absorbed – and the self-absorption itself another sin, so there you go…). And gosh, the categories of sinning in my thoughts and sinning by what I have failed to do are huge…
            And, yeah, I agree that sometimes you just have to speak the truth, even if it wounds, such as when instructing the ignorant, counseling the doubtful, and admonishing sinners. But for me it’s more likely to be wounding people with things like one-upmanship, lack of reasonable empathy or charity, impatience, or other stupid and thoughtless things…
            It’s up to God to sort these issues out and up to me to repent and confess. Granted, for some sins we bear reduced responsibility because of past wounds we ourselves may have experienced, but reduced responsibility is not the same as no responsibility, and confession is considered a minor exorcism, so it puts the devil and his minions to flight…
            As Proverbs 24 tells us, the just man falls seven times (a day), but the wicked fall into mischief. Still, if we patiently bear those who wrong us, they are the things which work to our good and help us get to heaven…

    I read that Erdogan was calling upon Muslims to “flood” Jerusalem’s mosques. Note the use of the word “flood”, as in, the flood coming out of the dragon’s mouth.

    Revelation 12:15–And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
