Turkey wants to see the Palestinian flag wave outside the United Nations as a full member, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said today during the fifth meeting of the Turkish-Arab Cooperation Forum 2012 in Istanbul, daily Hürriyet has reported.

"Our responsibility for Palestinian people has not ended yet," Davutoğlu said. "We will keep on working to make Palestine attain the position it deserves on an international platform."

It is time to harshly react to Israel's policies, which have damaged the peace process, Davutoğlu said.

Turkey: Syrian regime resembles armed militia

ISTANBUL - The Associated Press


Turkey’s foreign minister says the Syrian regime has degenerated into an "armed militia" that resorts to brutality in an attempt to stay in power.

Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu spoke Saturday at an Istanbul meeting attended by Arab foreign ministers who expressed opposition to the Syrian government. The ministers are also expressing support to the Palestinians after the United Nations endorsed an independent state for them.

Davutoğlu and other delegates at the one-day conference say the Syrian regime is a threat not only to its people but also to peace and security in the region.

The civil war has forced hundreds of thousands of Syrians to flee the country, and many more are internally displaced. Fighting has also spilled into Turkey and other neighboring countries.

@Thessalonian, ok one way is Jewish bankers give out loans to countries that need funds, these loans are given with the knowledge that they cannot be paid back, thus giving control over third infrastructure and media newspapers, and there voting is also manipulated on the world stage as was shown by some of the 9 countries voted recently.

@Jobs jon. You wrote " Not every country is run from Tel Aviv but only few like the US, the UK and Canada." Could you please elaborate as to how does "Tel Aviv run" these countries? Regards

Israel continue annexing lands on the West-Bank and East-Jerusalem and they still wonder how it comes that the axes are shifting :D That regardless religious preferences an overwhelming majority is siding with the Palestinians. How about a natural growth of Syria and Lebanon into Israel?

LoL@Stella: Your misguided faith in Israel always seems to make me laugh too. Israel can put those stolen boots on, but they got holes through them, holes which the whole world can see through! @Uri D: Your stating to sound like a broken record with the firing rockets 'over woman and children in Israel'. Saying the same thing over and over won't miraculously make it true, death tolls per side tell the real story. Palestine pays with the lives of their women and children, not the other way around

Be very careful what you wish for Palestine, you could win a pyrrhic victory whereby none of your Arab co-religionists ever give you aid & the rich nations who do simply withdraw all aid. Until the penny drops that Hamas are terrorists who always start the wars there can be no peace & no progress on standards of living. The Palestinians 'must' help themselves & answer their own problems without aggressive rockets.

@Rimon Tree and Dam: Well my friends, most countries in the world call "a spade is a spade". Not every country is run from Tel Aviv but only few like the US, the UK and Canada. Deep inside, you both also understand that the pals have been victimised too much and far so long using words like Israeli security as massive propaganda campaign. It is time for you to listen to your heart and not to your religious or cultural affiliations.

@ Adam No, they don't share the same feelings and certainly not Turkeys hate with the exception of the other Islamist States of course. The more decent nations just want to get rid of the problem and think they might have done a good step, which but unfortunately will not prove to have been such.

I dont get it, why our feelings about Palestinians bother our beloved Zionist friends. other 137 country share the same feelings (Some 138 countries in the 193-member assembly voted in favor of Palestine)

Well, I have to say I find it really remarkable that from 6 headlines 4 are dedicated to Israel expressing the usual passionate Islamist hate against her. Not to speak of the comments. Meanwhile AKP is preparing to turn Turkey into a quasi-Sultanat and nobody is cconcerned, because verybody is so busy with other peoples agendas.
