Erdogan displays misleading maps of Israel at UN, compares Israel to Nazis

Netanyahu suggests the cutthroat Turkish president ‘stop lying’ after he held up a propaganda placard with misleading maps of Israel during his UNGA address, erroneously claiming a ‘shrinking Palestine’.
– Prior to his speech, Erdogan compared the murder of Jews during the Holocaust, to the deaths in Gaza.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday compared Israel’s actions in Gaza to the Holocaust and provided a show and tell presentation, similar to the ones favored by Israeli leader, condemning what he described is an Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly attended by world leaders, the Turkish president said the only solution to Israeli-Palestinian conflict is an “immediate establishment” a Palestinian state.

“The immediate establishment of an independent Palestinian state with homogeneous territories, on the basis of the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, is the only solution,” he said. “Any other peace plan will never be implemented.”

Shortly before his speech at UNGA, the president met with Turkish natives living in New York, where the General Assembly is located, where he compared the murder of Jews during the Holocaust to the “genocide” committed by Israel in the Gaza Strip.

“When we look at the genocide Nazis committed against Jews, we should look at the massacre happening in the Gaza Strip from the same point of view,” Erdogan is quoted as saying by the Turkish Anadolu news agency.

In his UN speech, Erdogan went on to hold up a map showing Israel through the years from 1947 to the present day, revealing what he claims are “shrinking” Palestinian territories. “Where are the borders of the State of Israel?” Erdogan said, adding the Jewish state is one of the most racist countries in the world.

Visual presentations have in the past been a tool favored by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who during his UNGA address last year used a map revealing what he claimed was “another atomic facility in Iran.”

“He who does not stop lying about Israel, who slaughters the Kurds in his country, and who denies the awful massacre of the Armenian people – should not preach to Israel,” said Netanyahu in a statement following the Turkish president’s speech. “Erdogan, stop lying.”

The 65-year-old then took another thinly veiled shot at Israel, saying nuclear power should either be free for all states or banned completely, and warned that the “inequality” between states who have nuclear power and who do not undermines global balances.

Erdogan has hinted in the past that he wanted he same protection for Turkey as Israel, which foreign analysts say possesses a sizable nuclear arsenal.

Israel maintains a policy of ambiguity around the nuclear issue, refusing to confirm or deny its capabilities.

“The position of nuclear power should either be forbidden for all or permissible for everyone,” Erdogan told the United Nations General Assembly annual gathering of world leaders.

Turkey signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty in 1980, and has also signed the 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, which bans all nuclear detonations for any purpose.

In the spirit of accuracy, HERE’S WHY the territory of Israel is not honestly depicted in Erdogan’s use of the overly exploited Palestinian propaganda display:



Now, some real history:


This is the original territory designated by the UN’s predecessor, the League of Nations for the Jewish National Home. This is the legal area intended for the upcoming State of Israel.


In 1921,  then Secretary of State for the Colonies, Winston Churchill reneges on the spirit of the Mandate for Palestine by reducing the land mass by 77% in a deal to compensate the Hashemite Arabs that had lost their land in Arabia. Since no one contested this unilateral action, it became permanent.


Having been attacked by 6 Arab armies after Israel was declared a Jewish State, it’s land mass was reduced for a second time in 1948, until the 6 Day War. Israel, being victorious in the defensive war grew in size for the first time. In it’s attempts to make peace with Egypt & Syria, the entire Sinai was returned and part of the Golan Heights were returned to Syria, in Israel’s THIRD REDUCTION.


Up until this point, the Arabs have yet to assume the ‘Palestinian‘ *identity. 


Israel’s 3rd land loss on the left AFTER the return of the Sinai & parts of the Golan Heights, and 4th land reduction shown on the right.

So, in truth, the haters of Israel revised history to convince the uneducated.



*Ohhh… and a brief word on the “Palestinian” identity:
