Dear Leader probably thrilled to have such great new friends as Erdogan and Ahmedinajad.
AP: Turkey urges Obama to redefine Mideast terrorism
Turkey's prime minister had a message Thursday for U.S. President Barack Obama: redefine terror and terrorism in the Middle East and use it as the basis for a new American policy.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose country has played a key role in trying to mediate among Israel and Syria and the Palestinians, said Obama's new Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, will be in Turkey for talks Sunday.
"President Obama must redefine terror and terrorist organizations in the Middle East, and based on this new definition, a new American policy must be deployed in the Middle East," Erdogan told the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
The Turkish leader appeared to be referring to the U.S. position toward Hamas and Hezbollah, which the United States considers terrorist organizations. While both have military wings, Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007 and remains in charge following the recent Israeli invasion. Hezbollah is a major political force in Lebanon.
In other news, Turkey had committed ethnic cleansing of Greeks from Turkey, Genocide of Armenians and recently war crimes towards Kurds. In addition they are illegally occupying half of Cyprus. Talk about hypocrites who lecture the world how to behave from their own low moral pedestal.
