Erdogan Should Resign

The destructive role of the Justice and Development Party (JDP) in Turkey was clearly uncovered by Information Minister, Omran al-Zoubi's, recent statements. Minister al-Zoubi's rhetorical questions about whether JDP has become the political wing of al-Qaeda, as its intelligence and security arm, are indeed subject of respect and do merit standing ovations. Erdogan's organic and strategic relationship with Moslem Brotherhood and al-Qaeda affiliates  is crystal clear, as many observers underlined that such a relation is considered Erdogan's tool to revive Ottoman past dreams!

Syria, the victim for Erdogan's supported, hosted, trained and mushroomed terrorist groups, did express condolences to the families of  Rehanli terrorist explosions and to the friendly people of Turkey. Syria, added Minister al-Zoubi, "did not commit and would never commit such an act because our values would not allow that". Thus, "it is not anyone's right to hurl unfounded accusations".

Thus, the prime Minister of Turkey, Erdogan, "should be asked about this act. He and his party bear direct responsibility'' and should "step down as a killer and as a butcher" because his government had indeed facilitated the flow of arms, explosives, vehicles, fighters and money across the border into Syria, turning it into the Afghani Tora Bora and Qandahar like international terrorism centers. Indeed, Erdogan, should resign, and many Syrians consider him illegitimate, and he should be denied the opportunity to  build his personal selfish and egoistic glories at the expense of the blood of the Syrians and the Turks.

"Does he want to  incite the United States and say that his state, which is a NATO member, is being exposed to an aggression from Syria? Does he want to show himself as being able enough to interfere in Syria?" Minister al-Zoubi exclaimed, while many observers aware of the situation on the ground do think that some sides, including Erdogan himself, wanted through the said terrorist attack to abort the recent Russian-American efforts to end the crisis in Syria peacefully.
