LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Erdogan’s Turkey no U.S. ally
Question of the Day
Iran has found a willing accomplice to surreptitiously work at skirting the sanctions imposed by our rightfully agitated and fed-up world community -- Turkey.
This is the same nation that has been in the news for the past couple of years for all the wrong reasons and truly deserves to be sanctioned and subjected to divestment.
In fact, this mere impotent shred of the once-dynastic Ottoman Empire and its very culpable Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan should immediately be charged with some form of international crime for violating the recently updated U.N. Security Council subsection that specifically prohibits aiding the nuclear-craving Iranian regime. Arrogantly, Turkey is a past member of the Security Council itself, so pleading ignorance to such a blatantly offensive criminal charge that involves paying the exceedingly ostracized Iran for its illegal oil supply holds no water.
Great pressure must be brought to bear on Turkey now. To start, let's all boycott its products. As much as I once enjoyed Turkish dried figs, I have long refused to aid and abet the economy of Mr. Erdogan, a committed extremist sympathizer who, among other fits of anti-Zionist pique, audaciously took umbrage at Israel's rightful defense of itself in recent years when he boldly backed an illegal flotilla of terrorists and left-wing jihadist wannabes trying to penetrate Israel's boundaries. This led to the deaths of eight aboard the flotilla.
Instead of insidiously laying the blame at Israel's feet once again, Mr. Erdogan should have been charged with being the direct cause of his unscrupulous citizens' deaths. Whether any form of justice is applied is up to the members of the U.N. Security Council.
