Alik paper: if Israel keeps Gaza in blockade, Turkey has been blockading Armenia for 15 years

PanARMENIAN.Net - The “anti-Israeli” moods of Turkey, which have been observed since last year, aim to show the Arab countries that allegedly Turkey protects the Palestinian people’s rights more than other Islamic countries, reads an editorial of Armenian Alik paper published in Iran.

“The situation’s farce is in the fact that Turkey is trying to display its sympathy towards the Palestinian people, as though the Palestinian problem and liberation struggle have appeared in the international arena recently. However, the international community knows certainly that Turkey has had strategic relations with Israel for 60 years, thus stabbing in the back of the Arab world,” the editorial says.

It also noted that Ankara conceals other goals, accusing Israel. Specifically, if Israel keeps Gaza in a blockade, Turkey has been blockading Armenia for over 15 years. “If Israel violates the rights of the Palestinian people, Turkey has article 301 of the Criminal Code, which threatens such people, as writer Orhan Pamuk and historian Taner Akcam,” the article reads.

The paper’s editor concludes that Turkey, which has been denying its history and trying to mislead the international community, will not be able to avoid the Armenian Genocide recognition and compensation of the Armenian people’s losses, like Israel will reimburse the Palestinian people’s damage one day.
