This is a blog dedicated to a personal interpretation of political news of the day. I attempt to be as knowledgeable as possible before commenting and committing my thoughts to a day's communication.

A Grave Misunderstanding on an Outrage Scale of Ten

"Some Arab countries have shown very weak responses [on Jerusalem]. It seems some countries are very timid of the United States."
"If we don’t defend Jerusalem today, when will we defend it?. If we don’t defend Jerusalem, one of the three most sacred places of Islam, what will we defend?"
"We will make a call for countries that have so far not recognized Palestine to do so now. We want the United States to turn back from its mistake."

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu

"Erdogan is playing to the audience and he has done this for many years,. And while he pleases the audience, he has expanded economic and military cooperation with Israel, despite what he tells his followers here in Turkey."
"Of course, Israel will insist on its current position. But I believe Palestinians are right in their calls to remain on their land and I hope, some day, that this territory will not be overseen by one group, but will be managed by a coalition of Jewish, Christian and Muslim representatives who all have a shared history there."
Ihsan Eliacik, progressive Islamic scholar in Turkey

"The United States has chosen to lose its qualification as a mediator -- We will no longer accept that it has a role in the political process from now."
"We call that the [peace] process in its entirety be transferred to the United Nations."

With his manic frothing at the perfidy and murderous intent of Israel against Palestinians, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey's volcanic-psyched autocrat-Islamist imperiously called an urgent conference of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to discuss the earth-shattering pronouncement by the President of the United States in outrageous agreement that Israel's de facto capital is indeed the nation's capital city, verifying that Jerusalem which history and ancient scripture verify as the eternal undivided capital of ancient Israel is also the capital of reborn Israel. Agreeing to recognize reality is, in Erdogan's fevered mind, a capital offence for which Israel must pay dearly.

The man whose mind goes off on febrile forays of vengeance whenever Israel is named has threatened war; inciting those present at the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation's member-states to assemble an army to march on Jerusalem and release it from the clutches of the Jews, that unregenerate tribe of murderers of Palestinian children whom the much-admired Hamas protects by installing rocket launchers in mosques and schools and apartment complexes, brilliant tacticians that they are, calling the world's attention to the IDF's return fire, deliberately harming those Hamas has placed in harm's way.

Snarling and bellowing, Erdogan works himself into a foaming lather of violent indignation at the very thought that a nation of Jews has re-established itself in the Middle East, a geography once in thrall to the dictates of the Ottoman Empire and as such sacred to Islam, making it intolerable that Jewish feet trample upon that very land, claiming it as their own. The Islamic hatred for any tribe or minority ethnic group that fails to keep faith with Islam has become legendary. The religion of peace whose faithful slaughter one another in variations on jihad, reaching out beyond Muslim countries to send jihadis emissaries abroad to become martyrs there, will brook no question of Islam's divine purpose in jihad from Islamophobes.

This is the purpose of the 57-member OIC, to come together as one whenever and wherever the presumed plight of Muslims calls out for their brethren in Islam to come to their rescue. As revolving head of the OIC Erdogan has chosen the issue of Israel's capital Jerusalem to call an emergency meeting; no one in the OIC evidently felt a requirement to meet to discuss whatever could be done to give aid to Bangladesh to succour the fleeing Rohingya from Buddhist-majority Myanmar, whose condition is inhumanely dire, just as no meeting took place when Darfur was being mutilated by Sudan's Arab president.

Needless to say, the call to all and sundry to attend this meeting in Istanbul at Erdogan's fiery behest was intended to host all the important players of the Middle East, presumably aghast that the third most sacred site in Islam [never once mentioned in the Koran] was hideously monopolized by Israel. A strange thing happened on the way to Istanbul; many of the invitees somehow got waylaid, forget the date or the route, and simply failed to appear. Of the 57 heads of state a paltry 16 appeared, according to Quds Press. Most tasked lower-level ministers and officials to attend, mother of all shocks! "We can understand the absence of Egypt due to the position of the Turkish president regarding the Egyptian military coup [Turkey supporting the Muslim Brotherhood] but the absence of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE is not understood", stated Kuwaiti political analyst Ayed Al-Manaa

Well now, a blisteringly irate Mahmoud Abbas has the solution to the problem. To call upon the United Nations to administer any further possible dialogues between Israel and the PA, in negotiating a settlement for 'peace' agreeable to the Palestinians. The absolute neutrality and honourable discharge of the United Nations' arms have already displayed the reliability of their judgement, given the positions of the Human Rights Council repeatedly charging Israel with crimes ad nauseum, and UNESCO declaring all of Jerusalem's Hebraic historical sites to represent Palestinian heritage. That, according to Mahmoud Abbas, is a reflection of reality, of justice, of decency and non-partisanship.
