Turkish President: Muslims Should Resist Israel By Visiting Temple Mount Often

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Head of the Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee Avi Dichter attend a Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting at the Knesset

Once a close and important ally who represented an all-important bridge between the Jewish state and the Muslim world, Erdogan was said to be playing to extremist elements in the Islamic world when he changed his tune and became arguably the angriest anti-Israel voice on the worldwide scene.

"Those who systematically violate human rights in their own country shouldn't preach to region's only true democracy", the Israeli foreign ministry tweeted, an apparent reference to Ankara's crackdown on dissidents in the wake of a coup attempt last July.

He added that the global community remains silent on Israel's treatment of Palestinians.

Muslims call al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem's Old City the Noble Sanctuary, or Haram al-Sharif, and it's considered the third most important holy site for Muslims after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

"What's the difference between the present acts of the Israeli administration and the racist and discriminatory politics that were practiced against black people in the past in America and up until a short time ago in South Africa?" he asked.

Saar, who announced in recent weeks that he intends to return to political life, also said in other interviews that close relations with Turkey could not be expected as long as Erdogan, "an ally of Hamas and Al-Nusra Front", remained the leader of Turkey. "Israel strictly adheres to protecting full freedom of worship for Jews, Muslims and Christians - and will continue to do so". Erdoğan had earlier said Turkey would not allow the call for morning prayers "to be silenced in Jerusalem". "The only solution is the establishment of a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders", including the areas of Yerushalayim that Israel liberated in the 1967 Six Day War. Are they unsure of their own fate?

The director of Israel's foreign ministry Yuval Rotem met on Tuesday with Turkey's ambassador to Israel Kemal Okem for what was termed a clarification meeting, after Israel reacted sharply to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's critical comments of Israel.

In his comments at the conference in Istanbul, Erodgan also criticized promises by President Donald Trump to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, saying the plan was "extremely wrong" and should be "dropped from the agenda".
