Turkish PM walks off the stage over Gaza

Wow, here's one PM that's not behaving like a zionist glove puppet. Apparently, the Turkish PM had enough after hearing some remarks made by the Israeli President and walked off the Davos stage:

Erdogan is an idiot!

I am upset at what is going on in Gaza, you are upset at what is going on in Gaza... Most of the world is upset at the humanitarian crisis that is going on in Gaza.... But for a politician who represents me and millions of other Turks can not just storm off like a kid from a debate... He may not like what he hears, but he needs to be present in the panel so that he can disagree with diplomacy...

If he can not control his anger, he has no business being the president....!

According to the J'sem Post, it happened very near the end of that debate (less than 1 minute to go) and both Perez and Erdogan had been raising their voices. That's not exactly "storm[ing] off like a kid from a debate", IMHO. I think you're being too hard on Erdogan. If it was the PM of Britain, I'd applaud him.

Perhaps you should get the full story before judging?

"Controlling one's anger" isn't always the right thing to do: some outrage can be perfectly justified.

Peres really was out of line in his own defense of his nation's policies...

And Erdogan was right to point out that Peres should have been more cordial and with a tone more appropriate for a president...

But then Erdogan failed into the same trap.

So... the 'message' got lost... due to the messenger's hypocrisy...

Unfortunately, the last minute is what the 'media' will zone in on... and portray Turkey as not so neutral and being inflammatory....

Turkey's actually getting rather a lot of credit from the grassroots here and everywhere.

Most other Western leaders are still in "Emperor's new clothes" mode.
