Turkey’s Erdogan slams UN Security Council as ‘Israel’s Protection Council’ – Magazine Creations

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized the UN Security Council on Saturday after the United States vetoed a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Erdogan, who does not recognize Hamas as a terrorist organization, described the UN leadership as a “Council to protect Israel”, following a vote on Friday in which the US was the only member state to oppose the measure. Erdogan also accused the West of “barbarity” and Islamophobia for the war in Gaza.

The vote in the 15-member council was 13-1, with the UK abstaining. The US is one of five permanent members with a veto, and its vote does not invalidate the measure.

“Since October 7, the security council has become Israel’s protection and defense council,” Erdogan said, according to AFP.

Hamas terrorists launched a brutal attack on Israel on October 7 that killed an estimated 1,200 and sparked the current Israeli offensive against Hamas, which it claims has killed more than 17,400.

“Is that justice?” Erdogan asked after the vote, adding: “The world is bigger than five,” a reference to the five veto-wielding nations at the UN Security Council.

“Another world is strong, but without America,” the Turkish leader said.

“The United States stands by Israel with its money and military equipment. Hey, America! How much will you pay for that?” he added.

“Every day the Declaration of Human Rights is violated in Gaza,” he said, according to AFP.

Erdogan has been highly critical of Israel’s role in the conflict. He toured the nation to a packed house in Istanbul a day before the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights according to the Associated Press.

“Israel has committed atrocities and massacres that will shame the entire humanity,” Erdogan said.

Erdogan also targeted the West for its role in the wars.

“We have seen this example of the brutality of the West in all those unfortunate events that they either supported or perpetrated.

“According to their understanding, non-Westerners have no right to enjoy these universal human rights… they overlook the Islamophobic attacks and show the distorted perception and mentality of the West,” he said.

The comments come after Erdogan claimed earlier this week that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would be tried as a “war criminal” after Israel’s war against Hamas ends.

He also compared Netanyahu to genocidal dictators of the past.
