Erdoğan’s son slams U.S., says it is no longer part of the peace

Bilal Erdoğan, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s son and deputy chair of the Islamist Ilim Yayma Foundation, said U.S. removed itself from the peace process by recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“The U.S. is no longer involved in the peace process,” Bilal Erdoğan was quoted as saying by Turkish news website World Bulletin, “they are betraying the very institution that they have helped create, the UN Security Council.”

Bilal Erdoğan said the U.S. decision showed the United Nations is “worthless” for the U.S. and that the international system to ensure world peace after the Second World War is not working.

He said:

Jerusalem means everything for which our grandfathers stood: Peaceful coexistence, and peaceful coexistence is very foreign to the Western powers. Because they don’t like coexistence. They would like to be all powerful and they would like to stand above the shoulders of the rest of the world.
