The Turkish Anadolu Agency reported today that Erdogan’s henchman, Turkey’s Prime Minister, has made a promise today to his people that if they elect him next month that he promises to soon liberate Jerusalem. Ahmet Davutoglu was using words that are major hints for all students of Bible Prophecy:
“Al-Aqsa Mosque [The Temple Mount] is ours forever, and as Allah is my witness and history will testify, it will remain ours forever”. (see )
After vowing to retake Jerusalem if elected, just as Erdogan did last week, Davutoglu stressed that his country “cannot be an ally or friend of those who desecrated the Al-Aqsa Mosque with their boots” referring to Israelis who had to thwart demonstrations. By this Davutoglu is accusing Israel of desecrating the Temple Mount since it is an abomination in Islam for anyone to enter holy ground unless they are barefooted.
The speech Davutoglu gave on Thursday in front of massive crowds in the state of Amasya, north of the country, was done within the framework of the campaign conducted by the party in preparation for the general election which is expected to hit the country early next month.
The war of words erupted between opposition leaders in which they said that Jerusalem is to be considered private land for the Jews – a reference to Salahuddin Demirtash, Party leader of the Democratic Peoples, and other statements from Kamal Ihsanoglu, leader of the Republican People’s Party, Turkey’s largest opposition party, in which these criticized poor relations with Israel.
The AKP Party seems to make Israel the main issue of the divide. He said in response to the opposition:
“We will not be friends for those who desecrated Al-Aqsa [Temple Mount] with their boots,” adding “let them go and be friends with them (the Jews) as they wish,” referring to the opposition, saying that they “insult Jerusalem” like the Jews.
Davutoglu is saying that what determines a Muslim from a non-Muslim is the issue of Jerusalem. In other words, Davutoglu is dividing Turks whether they are with the AK Party or enemy collaborators for Israel.
He then spoke of the pride of Turkey in manufacturing airplanes locally and sending satellites into space that since he came to power at the end of 2002.
War demands weapons and Davutoglu pointed out: “Before 2002, Turkey was unable to even buy an infantry rifle, tanks would come from a grant from the State, and then would be sent to Israel in order to repair them”.
Davutoglu then began to speak on martyrdom, how the forefathers remind them that the path of martyrdom is Jerusalem, and to liberate it they must return to their Ottoman dream:
“Amasya’s elders, faith and land, knowledge stems from the land, the Ottoman Land, the Seljukian Land. They [the martyrs] heard us, our forefathers, they want an answer. We will not enter in the hall of the martyrs of Al-Aqsa (temple mount) unless they hear us so we must give an answer. Who can stop us? Anyone from the Middle East, the Balkans, Asia?”.
