Hamas leader: Turkey is a “source of power for all Muslims” while crowds cheer “down with Israel”

Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal touted Turkey as a “source of power” for Muslims on Saturday, praising Turkey for supporting the Palestinian cause.

“A democratic, stable and developed Turkey is a source of power for all Muslims,” Mr. Meshaal said in an address to the ruling Justice and Development Party’s annual congress in the the conservative central Anatolian city of Konya, the Agence France Presse reported Saturday.

Mr. Meshaal added that a “strong Turkey means a strong Jerusalem, a strong Palestine,” and called for liberation for Palestine and Jerusalem.

Crowds in the hallway cheered “Allahu Akbar [God is greatest]” and “Down with Israel” during Mr. Meshaal’s speech.

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Turkey’s flag, a crescent with a star on a red field, was a “symbol of the innocent in the world,” AFP reported.

“God is witness … we will make this red flag a symbol of the innocent. This red flag will fly side by side with the flags of Palestine, free Syria and all other innocents’ flags anywhere in the world,” he said, AFP reported.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is known for his support of Palestine and outbursts against Israel, and has blasted Israel over it’s military retaliations against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

    Many fear giving Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria back to Israel willbe a precedent
    for giving America back to the American Indians, who are Magog, Magogoli, Mongols. The Canaanites were Hun Ugaritic offshoots of the Magog Turanian Khitai Hittites as Major Conder showed in 1890. The Hittites were the offspring of Heth, the second son of Canaan. Abbasid Caliphs of Baghdad were puppets of their Turk praetorians, as warrior slave condoterri took over, leading to Mamluk, Seljuq, Safavid, Khalaj, Mughal and Osmanli domination of Islam as a Magog instrument. Marco Polo did not meet with a Chinese ruler but with the Magog Kublai Khan. Churchill considered Hitler to be a Hun. Sun Yat Sen sought to cancel the influence of the Manchurian Magog, but Mao embraced them. General Custer was killed by the Magog. The Magog Rising Sun bombed Pearl Harbor. Therefore American and Israeli Manifest Destiny must overcome the Magog.
