Erdogan Claims That Israel Is “Threatening People With Atomic Bombs” As Hezbollah Ramps Up Their Attacks From The North


by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is doing his best to inflame tensions in the Middle East.  We all knew that he was a lunatic, but the inflammatory rhetoric that is coming out of him now is the sort of thing that we would expect to hear from leaders of Hamas or Hezbollah.  During a “fiery speech” on Wednesday, Erdogan accused Israel of being a “terror state”, and he boldly declared that Israel’s leaders must be held accountable as war criminals in international courts…


Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan today said Israel was a ‘terror state’ committing war crimes and violating international law in Gaza, while repeating his view that Hamas gunmen are not terrorists but a ‘political party elected by Palestinians’.

In a fiery speech to members of his party, Erdogan said Turkey would work to ensure that Israel’s political and military leaders are recognised as ‘terrorists’ and brought to trial in international courts.

If all of that wasn’t bad enough, Erdogan also accused Israel of “threatening people with atomic bombs”

“They [Israel] have been speaking about murdering all those people using nuclear weapons, so let me call on Benjamin Netanyahu — do you have nuclear weapons or not? Explain this, if you have the courage.”

“You are threatening people with atomic bombs, nuclear bombs. It does not matter what you have, you are a goner,” he said.

When Erdogan said “you are a goner”, was he referring to Netanyahu or the nation of Israel as a whole?

Someone really needs to ask him that question.

I think that Erdogan is tempted to intervene directly in this war, but Turkey’s membership in NATO will hopefully prevent him from doing that.

Of course Erdogan is right about one thing.

Israel does possess nuclear weapons, and if the Israelis get pushed into a corner they will use them.

So let us hope that this war does not spiral out of control.

Unfortunately, there have been more clashes along the northern front.

On Tuesday, the IDF hit a number of Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon

The IDF said it struck terrorist infrastructure belonging to Hezbollah in Lebanon and a terrorist cell which attempted to fire anti-tank missiles at Israel on Tuesday afternoon.

The IDF added that terrorists fired anti-tank missiles and mortars toward IDF posts near Margaliot, Arab al-Aramshe, Yiftah, Shomera, and Matat on Tuesday.

These IDF strikes were in response to “multiple attacks” by Hezbollah…

Within 48 hours, Hezbollah forces launched multiple attacks against Israeli targets in the areas of Al-Malikiah, ‘Barkat Risha, Duviv, Yiftah Qadesh and Ramot Naftali.

According to information and videos, Hezbollah forces hit IDF positions and forces with Russian-made anti-tank systems 9M133-1 Kornet-E, 9M113 ‘Konkurs’, 9M131M “Metis-M1”, with Iranian ATGMs “Dehlavieh” and “Toophan” ( reverse-engineered BGM-71 TOW) and Chinese 107mm Type 63-2 Fadjr-1, 122mm 9M22U/Arash and 333mm ‘Falagh-2 high-explosive rockets.

There are fears that Hezbollah has also acquired the EM version of the Kornet which doubles the range to 8-10 km as a video shows a 1PN79M-3 thermal targeting system.

Additionally in another video, Hezbollah forces have been equipped with 9K32(M) Strela-2(M) MANPADS, RPO-A Shmel portable thermobaric missiles and Chinese W85 machine guns.

Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed terror groups are extremely angry about what is going on in Gaza.

The IDF is absolutely crushing Hamas, and at this point “a number of Hamas governmental sites in the heart of Gaza City” have been captured…

The IDF on Tuesday announced that it had captured a number of Hamas governmental sites in the heart of Gaza City as its troops engaged in fierce battles with Hamas gunmen in the city, while continuing to enable humanitarian corridors to allow for civilians to evacuate to the southern part of the Strip.

Meanwhile, the IDF has been storming the largest hospital in Gaza, and Israeli forces have recovered a large number of weapons that Hamas had stored there

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) released video early Wednesday showing weapons found inside the al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza.

“IDF troops are continuing the precise and targeted operation against Hamas in the Shifa Hospital complex, in which the troops are conducting searches for Hamas terrorist infrastructure and assets,” the IDF said in a statement.

“As the soldiers entered the hospital complex, they engaged with a number of terrorists and killed them,” the statement added. “Following this, during searches in one of the departments of the hospital, the troops located a room with technological assets, along with military and combat equipment used by the Hamas terrorist organization.”

No matter what Erdogan might say, nothing can change the fact that Hamas is a terrorist organization.

They kill children, rape women and kidnap the elderly.
