Once again we find both Erdogan and Davutoglu, the top leaders in Turkey, speaking about invading Jerusalem. And this time it surrounds the naming of their newest airport.
We reported a couple of weeks ago that Erdogan spoke about liberating Jerusalem, suggesting the Muslim world had lost its focus on Jerusalem.
And then a few days later Davutoglu, the Turkish Prime Minister, said nearly the same thing, declaring that Jerusalem belongs to the Muslims and would remain theirs forever.
Today, at a joint dedication ceremony of the opening of their newest airport, Davutoglu said that he and Erdogan agreed that the airport should be named after their legendary Muslim hero Saladin, who took back Jerusalem from the Crusaders in the 12th century. And then Davutoglu declared something very ominous, that Jerusalem belongs forever to the Kurds, Turks, Arabs and Muslims.
Once again, Walid Shoebat helps us out with part of the translation:
In order to send a message of unity and brotherhood, we put Saladin’s name on the airport, and, by Allah’s will, Jerusalem belongs to the Kurds, the Turks, the Arabs, and to all Muslims. And as our forefathers fought side by side at Gallipoli, and just as our forefathers went together to liberate Jerusalem with Saladin, we will march together on the same path.
Once again Davutoglu and Erdogan are making clear in the most blunt language yet, that they want to liberate Jerusalem from the Jews and return it to the Muslims. And that is a very scary proposition. I’m sure Netanyahu’s ears are perking up about now.
He then spoke of uniting the Muslim lands in what we know will be a caliphate:
The Turkish government does not differentiate, from East to West… We intend to put together all of the regions of our nations and we will bring closer this regions back together.
They want to bring all the Muslim nations back together and undo Sykes-Picot, which divided the Ottoman Empire into different nation states.
This is very similar to what Erdogan said the other day, that the Muslim world is at war with each other and has lost its focus on Jerusalem. They want to end the bloodshed and unify the Muslim world to eventually take back Jerusalem.
