ANKARA, August 20. (Itar-Tass) – Turkey’s Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has accused Israel in orchestrating ovethrow of President Mohammed Morsi. The official has made this statement during a meeting with regional heads of the ruling Justice and Development party.
“Israel is behind the Egyptian coup, and we have evidence. Ahead of the 2011 elections one representatives of the French intelligentsia, a Jew himself, said so. He announced that even if the Muslim Brotherhood won the elections, they would not be winners, because democracy is not elections,” Erdogan said, without providing further comments on the matter.
Turkish prime minister addressed Western nations with an advice to “study and learn what democracy means.” If western states fail to do so, the official suggested that conflicts and clashes will spread throughout the globe.
Erdogan also addressed the fact that a portion of Turkish citizens calls him a dicrator. “You want to see a dictator – go to Egypt,” he said. The prime minister promised that all those who call his rule a dictatorship will be given an answer in March 2014, when local governmental and presidential elections will be held.
