The US State Department’s statement on President Erdogan responded.

In the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the following were recorded:

“We completely reject the accusations made against our President in today’s statement by the US State Department.
The target of the points expressed by our President are not the Jews, but the Government of Israel, whose indiscriminate attacks on Palestine have caused the deaths of many innocent Palestinians, most of whom were children, women and young people. On the other hand, our President recalled the statements of a former Prime Minister of Israel.


In our society, which respects all beliefs and has a culture of peaceful coexistence of different religious and belief groups, anti-Semitism has never found its way. The land of our country was the homeland of many Jews who fled the Inquisition centuries ago and the Holocaust during World War II. Courageous Turkish diplomats helped save hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust. Our Jewish citizens have lived on this land for centuries in peace and quiet, without any discrimination.
Turkey is one of the main servers of the UN Human Rights Council resolution which for the first time defines anti-Semitism as a violation of human rights. It should also not be forgotten that anti-Semitism has been repeatedly described as a crime against humanity by our president.


On the other hand, the concept of anti-Semitism should not be exploited to shield from criticism the attacks of the current Israeli administration against the Palestinian people, as well as its systematic policies of ethnic, religious and cultural cleansing in the occupied territories. and to grant immunity to the Israeli administration in this area.
The serious dimensions of the attempts to provide immunity to Israel ultimately resulted in the deactivation of the UN Security Council, which is responsible for maintaining international peace and security, on an important issue like the Israeli conflict. Palestinian, because of the blockade. of a Member State.


Of course, it is no coincidence that the source of the unfair accusations against our president and the attempts of the UN Security Council to give Israel international immunity are the same.


On the other hand, it is a serious contradiction that the US administration, which qualifies the events of 1915 as “genocide” for political and populist reasons, which has a historical controversy and has no concrete information, of documents and evidence, be a contradiction. Our President drew attention to this contradiction.

The current policies followed by the American administration, which came to power with the discourses of the world order based on law and the rule of international law, in fact contradict these discourses.
We call on the US administration to strive to stop Israel’s attacks on the civilian population, instead of making unfair and unfounded accusations against our leaders. “The lifting of the veto on the UN Security Council would be an important first step in this area.”
