Turkish President Erdogan Says Devout Muslims And The “Prophet” Mohammed Are All Guilty Of Terrorism
At least that’s what we’d all have to believe if we drew his own statement below out to its logical conclusion. If attacks against one’s religious beliefs are “acts of terror” along with racism and discrimination, then he’s effectively just put the “Religion of Peace” prophet along with all those who practice and promulgate his teachings in a not-so-peaceful corner …

Qur’an Sura 9:30, “… the Christians say, ‘The Messiah is the son of [God].’ That is their statement from their mouths … May Allah destroy them …”
Qur’an Sura 3:85, “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers [burning in hell].”
Qur’an Sura 3:64, “Verily Allah has cursed the Unbelievers [Jews and Christians] and has prepared for them a Blazing Fire to dwell in forever. No protector will they find, nor savior. That Day their faces will be turned upside down in the Fire. They will say: ‘Woe to us! We should have obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger!’ ‘Our Lord! Give them double torment and curse them with a very great Curse!’”
Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”
‘Terrorism is not just committed by weapons,’ Erdogan said during a speech at Addis Ababa University in the Ethiopian capital. ‘Attacks on holy values and religious beliefs are acts of terror and so is racism and discrimination.’
The president called all perpetrators of these acts terrorists ‘no matter if they are Muslims, Christians or Jews.’
Erdogan added that terror has no religion and is a form of murder, against which all countries should take a united stance.
‘There has been a surge in anti-Islam sentiments not only in Europe, but all over the world following the recent terrorist attack against a magazine in Paris,’ Erdogan said, referring to the Jan. 7 attack on the French Charlie Hebdo magazine.
‘Turkey strongly condemned this attack and will continue to do so,’ he said. ‘As a country that fought terrorism for 40 years, we are totally against this violence no matter who it is committed by, where or under what pretense.’
Erdogan called acts of terrorism committed by ISIL in Syria, as well as Israel’s state terrorism against the Palestinians, ‘murder.’
He also said it was essential to adopt a united approach and fight jointly against all terrorist groups.
‘It is also our duty to condemn and take a stance against Syria’s terrorist leadership, which has killed 350,000 people already and continues to kill more,’ the Turkish president added.
Erdogan was also quick to denounce the so-called ‘Islamic terrorism.’
‘We object to this term,’ he said. ‘Nobody can utter the words Islam and terror together, as Islam, both in name and in essence, means peace.'” Read more.

Flashback: Turkey: Erdogan Insults Blacks As State Media Continues Anti-Semitic Campaign – “Not sated by his anti-Semitism, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has tried his hand at another form of blatant racism. In comments made about Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, the leader of the center-left and secular Republican Peoples Party (CHP), Erdoğan declared, ‘Kılıçdaroğlu is striving every bit he can to raise himself from the level of a black person to the level of a white man.’ The comments were made during a weekly meeting of his Justice and Development Party (AKP).” Read more.
Flashback: Turkey’s President Erdogan Was Elected On A Platform of Hatred – “An ally of Hamas, which has ruled Gaza since 2007, Erdogan repeatedly said Israeli leaders are ‘just like Hitler, who sought to establish a race free of faults.’ While Israelis always talk about the Holocaust, he said, their ‘barbarism has surpassed even Hitler’s’ … Since Erdogan’s remarks, praising Hitler has spread across Turkey’s social media, and disparaging Turkish Jews has become commonplace, the Turkish journalist noted. (Like many in her trade, she said criticizing Erdogan could cost her her job, and therefore spoke on condition of anonymity.) ‘Anti-Semitism was latent and mostly marginalized in Turkish politics. Erdogan has awakened this hidden hatred,’ she said.” Read more.
