Erdogan Blames West Weakness, Calls on Muslims to Unite Against Israel

Thursday, 09 November 2023 06:50 AM EST

Turkey's president is accusing Western nations of "weakness" in the face of civilian deaths in Gaza and called on Muslim nations to display unity against Israel's actions.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has been a vocal critic of Israel's actions in Gaza, made the comments Thursday at a meeting of the 10-member Economic Cooperation Organization in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

Erdogan said Western nations and organizations are observing these "massacres by Israel" from afar but are "too weak to even call for a cease-fire, let alone criticize child murderers."

He added: "If we, the Economic Cooperation Organization, as Muslims, are not going to raise our voices today...when will we raise our voices?"

Erdogan also said Turkey would continue with its diplomatic efforts to implement a cease-fire and prevent the spread of the conflict.

The Economic Cooperation Organization regroups five Central Asian nations as well as Turkey, Iran, Azerbaijan, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
