Turkish Forum (turkishnews.com) website journalist and columnist Ahmet Güler criticized Turkey’s devotion to Palestine, and recalled that the latter recognizes Armenian Genocide.
In his latest article, Güler noted that even though Turkey brought the world to its feet for Palestine and recognized East Jerusalem as its capital city, it forgot that in 2015, Palestine issued a stamp on the centennial of Armenian Genocide.
Also, the Turkish journalist recalled Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ remarks on January 18, 2016, at the Church of the Nativity basilica in Bethlehem, on the occasion of Armenian Christmas.
“Abbas had stated that the Armenians were ‘the salt of these lands’ and that they would never leave this land,” the Turkish Forum columnist wrote, in particular. “Mahmoud Abbas had likened the grave situation of the people of Palestine to the situation of the Armenians in the years of the Turkish Genocide.
“[Also,] the President of Palestine said he had invited his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan to Palestine and had hoped Sargsyan would accept the invitation.”
