Turkish Prime Minister: “Zionism Is A Crime Against Humanity”

Speaking on a UN forum in Vienna, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Zionism was a “crime against humanity.” This happened just after Jews celebrated the feast of Purim in memory of Esther and Mordecai who during captivity in Persia saved the nation from total annihilation.

It sounds like Mr. Erdoğan is competing with Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in who can say the most outrageous things about Israel.

There is no logical reason for this hatred.
