A world that is at America's beck and call only brings tyranny - Erdoğan

Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan denounced the violence of the Israeli state against the Palestinians, as well as the incapacity of the United Nations and the Muslim world in putting an end to the Palestine problem, during a mass rally today organised in İstanbul to support Jerusalem.

“Jerusalem is not just a city, it is a symbol, test, qiblah. If we can’t protect our first qiblah, we can’t protect future of last qiblah securely,” Edoğan said, adding that the Islam world failed in that test.

Erdoğan accused the United Nations of tacitly supporting Israel's “illegal and immoral” attitude toward Palestinians. 

“Do you understand now why I say the world is bigger than five? In a world that is at America's beck and call, you cannot see anything other than tyranny,” Erdoğan said. 

Erdoğan also told that the legitimacy of the United Nations further eroded, after it failed in reacting to the United State’s decision to open an embassy in Jerusalem.

During his speech, Erdoğan mostly addressed the Islam world, urging the muslims to use their hearts and wrists, as well as their prayers and tears to get effective solutions.

Erdoğan also said that, by moving its Embassy to Jerusalem, United States showed that it is not play the role of a mediator in the region. “United States has proven that it aims to create problems, rather than solving them. The only country that blocks the United Nations Security Council is the United States,” Erdoğan said.

Erdoğan also noted that he believed the U.S. citizens were not properly informed about the results of their Administration’s decisions and warned them that The United State’s moves may one day hit back at it. He also called American citizens to raise their voice against the US administration's mistakes.
