Israel Media Blames Turkey, Iran For Supporting ‘Violent Riots’ In The US

Published

on

Israeli media has accused Turkey and Iran of supporting violent demonstrations in the US over the killing over the Afro-American person. Turkey is one of the world’s biggest detainers of journalists while Iran butchered over 1,500 protesters last year, but leaders in both nations cynically attempted to exploit recent protests in the US, writes the JPost. 

The report writes that Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted that “if you’re dark-skinned walking in the US, you can’t be sure you’ll be alive in the next few minutes.”  Former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the killing of George Floyd was “deeply disturbing and upsetting’ and that it was part of a scheme by global powers and the “current world order.”

JPost says that It was hard to gauge the writers who penned the tweets for Ahmadinejad and Khamenei in English, some of them seem to be inspired from college activists in the US as it drifted from the standard vocabulary of the Iranian regime.

Even as Iran’s regime was backing the violent demonstrations in the US, Tehran was gunning down peaceful Kurdish “kolbars” or people who move goods across the border, claims the report.

Turkish President Erdogan, who championed in ethnically wiping-off the Kurds in northern Syria and whose army carried out a drone strike that killed two civilians recently Iraq, also supported the US demonstrations.

Erdogan also declared that Turkey denounces the “inhuman mentality” in the US and that Ankara stands against all attacks targeting humanity.  Despite these assertions, Turkey invaded Syria last year resulting in horrendous persecution of Kurds and not to forget the lynching a young female Kurdish activist -Hevrin Khalaf.
Over the weekend Kurdish and Yazidi women were found to be held in clandestine confinement cells run by Turkish-backed Syrian radicals in Syria. Almost every week in Turkey journalists and activists are arrested writes the Jpost while taking a dig at nations that oppose Trump and his policies.
Turkey claimed that it wished that  “perpetrators of this inhuman act shall receive the punishment they deserve” and that Ankara would be watching the US. Ankara’s remarks are in contradiction to how the US State Department does not critique Turkey for its extensive human rights violations including the mass detention of media professionals and persecution of Kurdish people.
Turkey has recently attempted to imprison and eliminate more opposition mayors in Kurdish areas. Ankara carries out drone strikes frequently and systematically massacring innocent people in Iraq and even bombing refugee camps.
Yet Turkish media is rejoicing the violent demonstrations and looting in the US over the weekend. It is in contradiction to how Turkey’s pro-government calls any demonstrators or critics in Turkey “terrorists.”
The decision by Turkey and Iran to engage themselves in the protests is part of their scheme to project themselves as tolerant and liberals to the international audience. The same Iranian regime that killed over 1,500 protesters last year, pretends to show compassion with US demonstrators, the report says.
The hypocritical remarks by Ankara and Tehran and their use of the term “world order” appear to be a form of similar messaging that describes a view that Iran and Turkey could work together to reduce the US role in the world.
When Erdogan said that there is an “unjust order we stand against across the world” and Ahmadinejad wrote that there is a “current world order which we all must unite against,” Jpost says that either both the tweets were written by the same person or a systematic propaganda is being flamed in Turkey and Iran to exploit US demonstrations.
