Turkey has a modern, serious military.
They could roll through Israel like it was nothing if they wanted to.
Of course, the US would have to intervene to protect Israel, and at that point, everyone would be involved, including even Egypt and Saudi.
It’s possible that Erdogan will conclude this is a good idea. He’s old enough at this point that he could start making bold moves. He could go down in history as the man who liberated Palestine, and this would allow him, instead of Saudi or Iran, to establish his own framework for the Middle East, which is based on the Ottoman dream.
Probably won’t happen. Don’t want to get people’s hopes up here. But it could happen.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would eventually be tried as a war criminal over Israel’s ongoing offensive in the Gaza Strip, while slamming Western countries supporting Israel.
Turkey, which supports a two-state solution to the decades-old conflict, has sharply criticised Israel over its campaign in Gaza, launched in response to militant group Hamas’ rampage on Oct. 7. More than 15,500 people have been killed in the Israeli air and ground attacks, according to Gaza’s health ministry.
In a speech to an Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) committee meeting in Istanbul, Erdogan said the Western nations supporting Israel were giving it “unconditional support to kill babies” and were complicit in its crimes.
“Beyond being a war criminal, Netanyahu, who is the butcher of Gaza right now, will be tried as the butcher of Gaza, just as Milosevic was tried,” Erdogan said, in reference to Yugoslav ex-President Slobodan Milosevic who was tried for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes at a tribunal in The Hague.
“Those who try to skip over the deaths of all those innocent people by using the excuse of Hamas have nothing left to say to humanity,” he added, referring to Western powers, which he said were “blind and deaf”.
Unlike most of its Western allies and some Gulf states, NATO member Turkey does not view Hamas as a terrorist group and hosts some of its members.
This is definitely a lot worse than anything Idi Amin was even accused of doing (he didn’t really do most of the stuff he was accused of). It’s worse than anything anyone ever did, actually.
This is just an ongoing mass murder of children, and the Jews are not even really trying to hide the fact that children are the target.
They will say “oh yeah, there was a Hamas base inside that kindergarten,” but it’s really low effort.
Israeli military left starving and cold infants to die
IDF forced parents and doctors to evacuate Al-Nasr Pediatric Hospital, leaving premature babies to die as they raided it nearly 3 weeks ago.
