Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal and Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi pledged their opposition to Israel at a conference in Turkey this weekend. Hamas leader Mashaal said that resistance was the only way to get Israel to back down from “occupation.”
YNet News reported:

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan hosted Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal and Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi at a major congress of his ruling party on Sunday. The three leaders pledged joint opposition to Israel and Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime.

Erdogan went as far as to blast Israel’s “state terrorism,” while Mashaal asserted that “resistance” is the only way to get is the Jewish state to back down from the “occupation.”

The Hamas leader, who received a standing ovation, said that his movement is committed to the liberation of Palestine and the creation of a Palestinian state. He did not address his decision to step down from his position as the group’s politburo chief.

“We are committed to liberating our land and taking back Jerusalem, dismantling the settlements and bringing back refugees, freeing the prisoners jailed by the Zionist occupier and establishing a real Palestinian state, with true sovereignty in spite of the enemy,” he said.

Mashaal stressed that “resistance” is the only means towards reinstating the Palestinians’ rights. He said that all other international attempts to press Israel to back down have failed.

Mashaal’s address underlined the deterioration in the ties between Ankara and Jerusalem. Erdogan’s willingness to buddy up to Mashaal in front of the cameras on Sunday marked a stark shift from six years ago, when the Turkish leader refused to meet the Hamas chief during the latter’s trip to Ankara.

Barack Obama just gave the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood government $450 million two weeks after protesters stormed the US embassy and torched the American flag.

    Israel Likely Standing Alone Again Naturally

    The first thing that must be understood about Israel’s isolation is that it is not isolation from having the support of a vast number of people. A matter of fact is that Israel is likely supported by a wider array of diverse people than any other country in the world with the likely exception of the United States. And like the United States, Israel also draws the most visceral hatreds from an equally large but somewhat less diverse group of people. Where Israel stands alone is among the nations and the world bodies.

    When listing countries whose governments support Israel, very few come to mind. Canada under the leadership of Prime Minister Steven Harper immediately comes to mind as does the two houses of Congress in the United States but not so much the Arabist State Department and Presidential Administration of the United States. This may change but cannot be counted as anything certain as the American political scene is almost as volatile and fickle as is its Israeli counterpart. There are a few smaller nations whose support Israel can depend upon in any General Assembly vote in the United Nations which is little consolation when considering that almost anything brought before that body is virtually guaranteed a wide majority vote against or denouncing anything and everything Israel.

    It was the General Assembly which we must remember that passed a resolution equating Zionism with racism and it took near to two decades to get that proclamation repealed. You cannot have any more animosity than that.

    And we likely do not even need to use as an example either of the United Nations Human Rights Council or the United Nations Human Rights Commission. The United Nations may have changed the name of this body but that did nothing to change its laser focus on Israel almost to the complete exclusion of anything happening throughout the entire world.[……………..]

    Thanks to Israel, Egypt and Turkey are now friends

    Israel lost two of its crucial friends and allies in the past month — Egypt and Turkey, two friendly Muslim countries and in fact rivals in proving to others that they are key to sustaining and restoring peace and stability in the region.

    Israel, recently embroiled in a seemingly insurmountable diplomatic spat with Turkey, is now experiencing a separate crisis with Egypt after killing five Egyptian border guards last month while pursuing what it says were radical Palestinian militants.

    Its refusal to apologize for the killing of nine Turkish pro-Palestinian activists on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla and with its new “apology” issue with Egypt, in which it expressed only “regret” over the deaths of the Egyptian border guards, mean Israel is destined to become isolated in the region, according to some analysts.

    Israel’s isolation will no doubt be secured by the grand alliance Egypt and Turkey are set to form, and following decades of mistrust and cold relations, Turkey and Egypt are now new friends with a common foe — Israel.

    In what could be seen as a strong sign that Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel is slowly falling apart, Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf told a Turkish television channel that a peace deal with Israel was not “sacred” and could be changed for the benefit of peace or the region.

    His comments were the strongest yet by the new government, which took over after Mubarak was overthrown in February.

    “The Camp David agreement is not a sacred thing and is always open to discussion with what would benefit the region and the case of fair peace … and we could make a change if needed,” he said in the interview.

    Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan started what has become known as his “Arab Spring tour” on Monday and made his first stop in Cairo, which is undergoing a transition process and recovering from political and economic fallout of the revolution that ended the 32-year-rule of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.{…………….}

    An Israeli expert also speculated along the same lines and claimed that the Egyptian-Turkish rapprochement is not really connected to relations with Israel. Shlomo Brom, an expert from the Institute for National Security Studies based in Israel, however, said Erdoğan is encouraging what he claimed was “the misperception” that Egypt and Turkey have become friends because of the common Israeli threat as Erdoğan is utilizing the rapprochement in his campaign against Israel.

    Brom confirmed that the two states oppose Israeli policy vis-à-vis the Palestinians and may cooperate in acting against these policies.

    Israel standing alone?

    No. No, Israel doesn’t stand alone.

    There’s a reason the prophet Ezekiel does not include Egypt in the list of nations attacking Israel along with Persia, in the battle of Gog & Magog.

    The Lord of heaven and earth is merely letting these nation declare clearly whether they be sheep, or goats. Whether they be for Him, or against Him.

    ‘I do not do this for your sake O Israel, but for My holy name sake’.






    Just remember that.

    It’s the classic third party boogey man who’s at fault.

    Their economic wounds are totally self inflicted and is caused by their incompetent religion that tries to force women to be ignorant and men to only study the koran. What skills they have are limited to a third grade education and person to person instruction in carpentry, etc. The few with ennate business skills work into the merchant class.

    All this is supporting a narrow rich class of imams and government types, including tribal. Especially tribal. Using their death cult to keep the masses at low skill levels and knowledge is to keep them from challenging the nomenklatura. The Eeeeevil Joooos are used as a red herring to keep the mobs from truly seeing who and what are responsible for the crappy life they lead.
