NETANYAHU AND ERDOGAN FACE OFF OVER KURDISH REFERENDUM

Following the referendum in “Kurdistan,” Turkish President Recep Erdogan and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are now engaged in a war of words over who is responsible for balkanizing the Middle East.

During a televised speech following the Kurdish referendum in Northern Iraq Recep Erdogan accused Israel and their intelligence agency, the Mossad, of manipulating the events leading up to the ‘yes’ vote. Upon seeing the Kurds in what is called ‘Kurdistan’ waving Israeli flags, Erdogan made his thought clear, saying “This shows one thing, that this administration (in northern Iraq) has a history with Mossad, they are hand-in-hand together.”

This has been a major point of debate between the two sides concerned with the Kurdish referendum, with Israel being the only nation to support Kurdish independence. Erdogan made this clear in his plea to Iraqi Kurdish leaders, asking them if they were “aware of what [they] are doing? Only Israel supports you.”

These statements echo earlier remarks made by Erdogan on Tuesday who told the Andalou news agency if the Kurds “do not review, we cannot take a lot of steps that we were about to take with Israel.” Erdogan’s concern about the Israeli role in the referendum centers around his country’s role in the region, warning states like Israel that “It is not possible for us to take steps with those who do not see Turkey as a playmaker in the region. Turkey is a playmaker in the region.” Erdogan also further criticized the Kurds saying, in clear terms, that the referendum is “unacceptable.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The larger question is, what is Turkey actually prepared to do to prevent the existence of ain independent Kurdistan?!?

And what is Israel actually prepared to do to thwart Turkey's doing this?!?
