The Muslim world is the target of plots to reshape it to the benefit of others, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned Saturday.
“Like a century ago, the Islamic world is facing efforts to reshape it through blood, tears, and strife between brothers,” Erdogan said in Istanbul, at the 7th Hadith and Sira Studies Awards Ceremony.
He called on people “to be prepared for attacks which try to bring down Muslims from within.”
“When Muslims are at odds, the ones that benefit are terrorist groups, and countries like Israel that use state terror,” he said.
Erdogan also reiterated his condemnation of U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Following Trump’s announcement, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) this week issued a declaration recognizing East Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state.
Erdogan said the OIC move would create a multiplier effect, encouraging other nations to follow in its lead.Güncelleme Tarihi: 16 Aralık 2017, 16:19
