Erdogan's hypocrisy beyond the pale

Reader comment on item: Turkey in Cyprus vs. Israel in Gaza

Submitted by Michael Kurtzig (United States), Jul 20, 2010 at 15:54

Turkey does not have a leg to stand on. I was in Famagusta in 1974, before the invasion of course, as a US Department of Agriculture official. I went into Famagusta but my Greek driver and interpreter would not accompany me and when I spent some time walking around. they were much concerned for my safety. I was met by only friendly citizens of that city. Famagusta was a beautiful city until 1974; a real shame. Erdogan's outrage is as hypocritical as many of the dictators of the Middle East. By the way. in Turkey, no you-Tube and I understand other manners of communication have been curtailed, phones tapped; so much for democracy. Time for the good Turkish citizens to throw out this fascist.
