Raees Erdogan is trying to bring back the days of the Ottoman Empire. Too bad that sh*t won't work in the 21st century. The only reason Turkey is relevant is because Ataturk had the vision to keep it secular. Or else it would probably be similar to its sh*tty ISIS infested neighborhood.

A few of my Turkish acquaintances compare the AKP to the BJP in terms of their strategy for the elections. They mostly target the uneducated ultra nationalists (mostly from the rural places) with nationalistic and religious tones.

At UN, Erdogan Cites Muslims’ Plights Around the World, But No Mention of China’s Uighurs :lol:

Listen to the Article! By Patrick Goodenough | September 25, 2019 | 4:32 AM EDT

(CNSNews.com) – Addressing the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan raised the plight of Muslims in hotspots around the world, but he was silent on what Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called “the stain of the century” – China’s mass detention of more than one million minority Muslims in internment camps.

Of other leaders who spoke at the U.N. in New York on Tuesday, six were from Islamic bloc countries. But neither Jordan’s king, the emir of Qatar, nor the presidents of Egypt, Kazakhstan, the Maldives, or Niger, had anything to say about the repression of Uighurs in China’s far-west Xinjiang province.

Turkey, however, is the Muslim country with arguably the strongest link to Xinjiang: Uighurs are members of a Turkic ethic group with historic and ethno-linguistic ties to the Turks. The largest exiled Uighur community outside of Central Asia is in Turkey, around 35,000 in number.

In his speech, Turkey’s Islamist president referred to crises affecting Muslims in Syria, Yemen, Libya, Qatar, Afghanistan, Burma, and disputed Kashmir. Erdogan also cited separatist disputes in Cyprus and Azerbaijan and expressed concern about the murder of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi and the death in custody of former Egyptian president and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi.

Erdogan dedicated a sizeable part of his address to the Palestinian issue, claiming that the “Palestinian territories under Israeli occupation have become one of the places where injustice prevails the most.” He said Muslims were the group most subjected to hate speech and discrimination.

But, like the other Muslim leader who took the podium, Erdogan said nothing about the discrimination faced by Muslims in western China. Last July, 36 U.N. member-states signed the letter praising China’s policies in Xinjiang. More than half of them were Muslim-majority states, including such prominent Islamic nations as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Egypt.

On Tuesday it was left to the United States – which has made religious freedom a key theme at this year’s General Assembly opening session – and a few Western allies to put the issue of the Uighurs onto the agenda in New York, with a panel discussion on “the Human Rights Crisis in Xinjiang.”

The event was moderated by U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom Sam Brownback, and the panel included a survivor of the Chinese internment camps and relatives of missing or detained family members. “Speakers called on members of the international community to speak up and urge China to change course, release all those in the camps, and demonstrate respect for the human rights of all its people,” the State Department said in a statement afterwards.

Earlier in the day Beijing responded to the Xinjiang-themed event by accusing the U.S. government of “using religious freedom as a cover to wantonly criticize other sovereign countries by disrespecting and distorting facts.” “Such attempts that take advantage of the U.N. platform to interfere in other countries’ internal affairs violate the purposes and principles of the U.N. Charter and run counter to the U.N. spirit for dialogue and cooperation,” an official said in a statement released by the foreign ministry.

“Therefore they will produce no effect whatsoever. Nor will they get support from the majority of countries.”

China says the camps in Xinjiang are “vocational education and training centers” used to “deradicalize” Muslims as part of its campaign against terrorism and extremism. The U.S. and other critics say they don’t buy that.

“They’re kind of running out of explanations, right, as this evidence [of mass incarceration] continues to grow,” U.S. assistant secretary for East Asian and Pacific affairs David Stilwell told a briefing in New York after Tuesday’s event.

“The typical explanation has to do with countering extremism, and then terrorism,” he said. “If you look at what’s going on in Hong Kong, they’ve also been using the word ‘terrorism’ a lot with respect to people who are simply protesting the loss of the liberties that they used to have …”

Our esteemed Terrorist Paki Panel: @Neo @Raja.pakistani @Zarvan @musalman @Zulfiqar Khan

No one is listening to you Terrorists anywhere... your propaganda at UN is a SUPER FLOP!

Your ladki-baaz PM keeps moving fingers on tantrik malaa jaap (given by jadookhor Tantrik 3rd wife black belt in black magic Bushra who has few Jinn's at her service) thinking it would cast spell on TRUMP but got insulted when TRUMP said "Where do you get these journalists from?" when some Paki journalist asked question about Kashmir. International reporters even asked on Imrand Khan's face did he BEG from TRUMP.

How much insults can Pakistan suffer??? No one believes you low IQ Terrorist sister breeders. :lol:

PoK would be taken from you and Pakistan would be broken sooner or later into following. I spent some time making the following map so copyright.

Those who have the blood of Muslims in their hand are talking about the rights of Muslims. Turkiy has finished off half a million Muslims which is second biggest genocide after the the genocide of Bengalis by Pakistani army in 20th century.

Turkey will soon become an average middle east country following Endogan's path, what kind of fool he must be picking fight with everyone, US, EU, Russia, China, India, Arabs.. really don't understand that weirdo.
He has delusions of rebuilding the ottoman empire. That was possible in the age of swords and cannons. Impossible today with a useless Islamist population who can't adapt to industrialization. The only reason Turkey has any economy at all is because it's close to Europe. Now they're pissing them and the Americans off.

His Pan Turkistan fantasy is a joke at best, all central Asian Stan countries which are sopposed to be their "Turkic brothers" were firmly on Russian side after they shot down a Russian jet, US sanctions almost halfed Turkish economy, now they are begging China for money to prop up their falling economy and they still embarked suicide mission in Syria, they try to use Muslim card to rally support from Muslim world while Arab world dont give them a damn.
