Al-Quds is Muslims’ red line : Tayyip Erdogan

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Turkey’s president on Sunday reiterated his country’s support for Palestine as the Muslim world celebrates Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

“We will not allow the Palestinian lands to be offered to anyone else,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a video message on Twitter addressed to US Muslims.


“I would like to reiterate that al-Quds Al-Sharif, the holy site of three religions and our first kiblah, is a red line for all Muslims worldwide,” Erdogan said.

“It is clear that the global order has long failed to produce justice, peace, serenity, and order,” he said.

“Last week we witnessed that a new occupation and annexation project, which disregards Palestine’s sovereignty and international law, was put into action by Israel,” he added.

Israel has said it will annex parts of the West Bank on July 1, as agreed to between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz, the head of the Blue and White party.

The plan has drawn outrage worldwide, and especially sharp condemnation in Turkey.

The West Bank, including East Jerusalem, is seen as occupied territory under international law, thus making all Jewish settlements there – as well as the planned annexation – illegal.

Erdogan hails Eid for US Muslims

Turning to the holiday, Erdogan said: “I congratulate my American Muslim brothers and sisters’ Eid al-Fitr on behalf of the citizens of the Republic of Turkey.”

“I pray to my Lord that these holy days may herald an era of peace, safety, and serenity for American Muslims, the entire Islamic world, and humankind,” Erdogan said.

“The [coronavirus] pandemic has shown that there are no hierarchies or privileges among any region, nation, or country in the world,” he added.

“It is only through global cooperation that the problems caused by diseases, various conflicts, wars, migration, racism, Islamophobia, terrorism, and poverty that threaten humankind can be overcome,” Erdogan said.

“Turkey has endeavored to respond to all countries, including the United States, who asked for our support in the fight against the global pandemic,” he said, referring to the medical and aid supplies for the pandemic that Turkey sent to scores of countries worldwide.

“I wish Allah’s grace upon our brothers and sisters who lost their lives because of Covid-19, patience to their families, and a speedy recovery to those receiving treatment,” he added.

“Undoubtedly, the prayers we say in this climate are more candid and sincere than ever,

“Our hearts are one and united even though we have spent the month of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr bitterly,” he said.

Since first appearing in China last December, the novel coronavirus has spread to at least 188 countries and regions.

The US, Russia, Brazil, and several European countries are currently the hardest hit in the world.

The pandemic has killed nearly 343,000 people worldwide, with more than 5.34 million confirmed cases, while recoveries numbering around 2.14 million, according to figures compiled by the US’ Johns Hopkins University.

Syria and Libya

On the ongoing civil war in Syria, the Turkish president said: “As everyone is focused on the pandemic, the oppressed Syrian people continue to suffer.”

Since 2011, Syria’s civil war has killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced more than 10 million, according to UN estimates.

On the conflict in Libya, he said: “The putschist [Khalifa] Haftar forces continue to attack their own people and destabilize the country and the region.”

Following the ouster of late ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya’s government was founded in 2015 under a UN-led political agreement.

The Libyan government, also known as the Government of National Accord (GNA), has been under attack by warlord Haftar’s armed forces since April 2019, with more than 1,000 killed in the violence.

“Blood and tears have, unfortunately, continued to be shed in the holy month of Ramadan as well across the Islamic world,” he added.

“Our brothers and sisters living in Western countries suffer from new Islamophobic, racist attacks nearly every day,

“The Covid-19 pandemic has again called into question the utility and reliability of international organizations against global threats,” he said.

“We hereby reiterate our call for fairly redesigning the global system, which we describe as ‘the world is bigger than five’,” he said, reiterating his motto on reforms to the UN Security Council, a cause he had long championed.AA


  1. Absolutely right on target, Erdogan is our modern Ertrugul.

    Allah please give hidayah to OIC, otherwise you are the best Reckoner for the friends of the Zionist tyrant vultures.

  2. turkey supplies cheap labour to europe. drive taxis, work in restaurants,meat factories.

    looked down as dummies-as also most muslims.

    • ha ha ha….

      Turkey supplied emergency aid to UK for Covid calamity..

      Turkey is amongst top in GDP and business..

      Stop the weed and bottle….sober up…..jealous…

      • idiot-imagine a backward muslim country helping advanced western countriesou believe earth is flat,

        only helpis in the cheaplabour force-

        you guys have a profet who said earth is flat and he flew on a winged horse,

        should give up flying in planes made by kaaffir americans- stick to camels.

        • and you have a monkey as god who lifted a whole mountain but couldnt find the have an elephant headed god who was behraded by his own father a god,who couldnt even rejoin a human head.and you have a god as pig incarnation to kill a pig asur. and what not rubbish and childish insane things…..

        • Actual Turkish person here, Turkey is a SECULAR country. People don’t really believe what Muslims beleive around here. Kafir, Turkish has this word borrowed from Arabic but it’s pretty much seen as how you see it by Turkish people. For Erdoğan, well, when he came to power, he wasn’t this same person outside (inside, he probably was), now he became a (3rd world inbred fanatics)-sympathizing, wanna-be world leader. It’s so easy. Go to r/Turkey on reddit you will see most people hate Islam and RTE, go to Turkish twitter again more than 50% hate RTE, and at least 30%,his religion. TL;DR Turkish people are not really Muslims, but conservatives have elected this guy 20 years ago and now with controlled, fixed-result elections, we need to have at least 5% more votes than really required to send him back. He lost 10% between last the presidentials tho.

        • Are you kidding me? Turkey is a SECULAR country. No one thinks like that. We are really not a Muslim country if you just think there is 14% atheism, 15% Alevis and a lot of the rest are pretty much Atatürkçü (learn a bit about Atatürk and Turkish Reforms), Erdoğan is much more of a compliant person in domestic, he used centrist policies to come in power and now, buys elections for himself, but his votes decreased a whole 10% bw the last 2, so he will most likely go soon. F*** fanatic muslims BTW

          Ne Mutlu Türk’üm Diyene.

  3. Ha ha ha ….
    All science today has originated from Arab scientists…

    Ibn Sina / Avicenna was the world’s first Father of modern medicine…

    Chullu bhar paani le aur Norway me doob…..

    “lali b” troll and his Sanghi Gobar-gaumutra-pushpak viman, kaurava 1000 test tube babies and head-brain transplant vedic science.

    • idiot-

      i have professors of medicine in my family in usa-they rely on modern medicine.

      haveing nothing to be proud about you rely on stories about muslims a 1000 years ago.

      today your buddies in pak rely on medicines from india.

      we should tell them to ask arabs.

      hindu doctors should not treat muslims-

    • idiot-is this garbage tol you by your family- have you no doctors in your family- i doubt it.
      probably all selling meat- or burqas, topis.

      • You don’t say indian your not an indian, the indian is Sanatan. U don’t know what is Vedas, puranas, etc…. Even though you are just an idiot follower, for example do you know who is missile man of India. Latest technology you are talking what do you know about technology for Covid19 people says gow mutr is the best medicine go and drink, I don’t want to say anything more bad about your mentality, better go and check for psychiatric

        • mohammed pbuh- used to drink camel piss. i heard it, can you confirm or deny.

          you muslims are the pride of bharat- have created so many great people.

          what do you do for a liveng- you write english-


    • nearly every town across the world teach yoga in usa and uk leaders visit hindu temples.
      hindu doctors and scientists are there in most countries- even in arab countries.

      stick to your namaz faceing mecca-

      high tech guys like steve jobs,marc zukerberg visited hindu gurus.

      stick your beards, topis, short pyjamas nd black burqas. top of world fashion.

    • Do you actually believe that Muslim? As most things medicine is only done by Muslims because it was necessary. I mean…you guys EVEN TODAY have 50% inbreeding. With sooo many crazy mutations, I think it would be impossible for u otherwise. BTW, al-Razi, which is about equal if not more important than Inbi Sina for medicine was disregarded in Muslim history because he didn’t believe in your religion. Actually MOST of the “Islamic” golden age scholars were from an “heretical” liberalist Islamic sect. I forgot the name, and I am not here to convince fanatical Muslims to anything, so if you really wnated you can find it with a single Google search.

      Also u Mid-Eastern or Pakistanis please don’t think Turks like you, after Erdoğan goes (he has to play with elections to stay there but opposition is just too gib nowadays) there wont be help from Turkey. The guy even advocated for Pakistani Kashmir, unbelievable. Erdoğan and his alien nefarious culture…

  4. You Sanghi zero-brain hate idiot!
    Stop your low quality banter and get a life you paid IT troll!
    I have more than 10 qualified Muslim physicians and scientists in my own family working in US, Europe, Australia and India as well.
    We Indian Muslims are always proud of our inclusive heritage of India and our progressive scientific Indian nation ; but we refuse to accept your Gobar head-brain transplantation mythologies and sex organ (shivling) worshipping, woman-burning “Sati”, etc as brainwashed by your supremacist Brahmin ever-scheming mischief-monger priests.

    • Muslims of India are Very Proud of Thier Amazing Indian Ancestors, True sons and daughters of India, who accepted Islam. They did so voluntarily and with full volition , recognising Islam as The Divine Truth, The Real Sanatan Dharm. Indian Muslims are the soul and Soil of India. The love of Indian Muslims for India can seen in that during their rule , India was the richest country in the world. Indian Muslims have India, Their beloved nation, So many Great things like Taj Mahal , Forts, Science and technology, Great Sufi Saints, advanced cultural and morality.
