Sultan Erdogan: Offending prophet a ‘red line’ for an Islamic world outsiders seek to divide

ANKARA, JAN 22 – Offenses against prophet Mohamed are a “red line” for the Islamic world cautioned Turkish President Recep Tayip Erdogan Thursday, quoted by the press in Ankara. “If killing people drawing comic strips is terrorism, offending the sacred values of people and provoking them is also terrorism” maintained the Turkish Islamist president, according to Sabah.

Erdogan launched an appeal for the unity of the Islamic world during his address at the parliamentary conference of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (Oic).

Erdogan stated that the Islamic world is in the throes of an “operation” seeking to divide it.

    Big red lines just don’t mean what they once did.

    Erdogan seems to be on a roll. Maybe he can see his way clear to hiring an unemployed Kenyan “with some executive experience” who will be into serious job hunting in about two years.

      Erdogan is distracting people from the economic failure of Turkey.

        The Korean banks holding his IOUs for various and sundry over the top public works projects must also feel more than a little distracted at his penchant for “sultanizing” with fanatic muslim lowlife abroad and his semi feral domestic supporters at home. Erdogan is not exactly laying down a strong foundation for an economic golden age reaching far into the future.

    Why do they keep coming if we keep offending the prophet?

    Erdogan’s statement sounds familiar. Oh, I remember, didn’t Erdogan’s BFF say, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”?

    I also wonder how Mr. Erdogan will be drawing his “red line.”

    The ‘world’ couldn’t give a damn about the ‘Islamic world’. They can jump in the lake.
    Stay away from civilized countries if you don’t like free speech. All religions get equal treatment: no respect. That’s modernity.

      The new Sultan isn’t interested in modernity… He’s retreating into the past.

    The good thing about sharia is that when they finally get it it will presage the biggest brain drain in the history of Turkey. They will literally run out of people who know how to keep the lights on.

    Mock me and I kill you. No self-respecting tyrant would have it any other way.
