Erdogan threatens Israel. Tel Aviv’s response triggers the Cold War

We are at odds between Turkey and Israel. Diplomatic relations between the two states have probably never been at such a low level. Among the most recent chapters in the story is Turkey’s decision to refer “human rights violations” and “war crimes committed by Israel” to the International Criminal Court. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said this. Daily Sabah reports this. «I said something in my speech during the demonstration for Palestine – said Erdogan – I announced that we would support initiatives that bring human rights violations and war crimes committed by Israel to the International Criminal Court. Our competent authorities, in particular our Foreign Ministry, will take care of this work.” As if that were not enough, Turkey announced that it had recalled its ambassador to Israel, Sakir Ozkan Torunlar, for consultations. In short, the tension is very high: Turkish President Recep Tayyip
Erdogan defined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “a person you can no longer talk to” in light of the war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, which has caused nearly 9,500 Palestinian deaths.

And Turkey’s decision to recall its ambassador to Israel for consultations represents “another step by Turkish President” Recep Tayyip Erdogan “in his support for the terrorist organization Hamas”. The Israeli Foreign Ministry said this, commenting on Ankara’s decision. Haaretz reports this. “Hamas terrorists killed, massacred and executed more than 1,400 people and kidnapped 240 in Gaza, including babies, children, women and elderly people,” Israeli ministry spokesman Lior Hayit wrote about Hamas using the Gaza population as human shields, preventing them from entering safe areas and stealing their fuel, food and drinking water. Hamas is the true enemy of the Palestinian people, committing war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
