A Case Study In Rhetoric

Published by at 4:37 pm under Current Events,Middle East,terrorism

Some interesting comments of late coming from Turkey’s leader, regarding Kurdish terrorist attacks:

“I say here very clearly, they will not win. They will gain nothing. They will melt away in their own darkness … they will drown in their own blood.” (The Guardian)

“Our fight will continue until the terrorist organization has been annihilated.” (BBC News)

Of course, Mr. Erdogan is very careful speaker and his words are not to be taken out of context. There are terrorists and then there are… whatever this Hamas guy is. Definitely not a terrorist, though.

The macho dude above is in Gaza. And you can’t be a terrorist and live in Gaza. Just like it’s impossible for a Muslim nation to commit genocide — which is certainly of great consolation to the victims of Darfur as well as a million or so dead Armenians.
