Egypt summons Turkish charge d’affaires over Erdogan comments

Turkish Prime Minister describes Al-Sisi as “illegitimate... tyrant”, questions Egypt’s ability to broker peace treaty between Hamas and Israel

Egypt summoned the Turkish charge d’affaires to Cairo on Sunday over comments Islamist Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan made, questioning Egypt’s ability to end the latest Israeli offensive in Gaza.

On Friday Erdogan called Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi an “illegitimate … tyrant”, adding that Egypt “could not be relied upon” to broker a peace treaty between warring Israel and Gaza militant group Hamas.

Egypt’s deputy foreign minister for east and south European affairs summoned the Turkish charge d’affaires to the ministry’s headquarters to deliver a letter “expressing [Egypt’s] rejection and resentment” of Erdogan’s comments.

Formerly an ally of deposed president Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, Erdogan, according to AFP, said Egypt is guilty of blocking humanitarian aid to Hamas coming in through the Rafah border crossing on the Gaza strip in north Sinai. Hamas was forged from principles similar to those of the Brotherhood.

On Saturday, Egyptian security forces turned back an Egyptian aid convoy headed for Gaza for security reasons.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) launched a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip on Thursday night, almost 10 days after the start of its offensive on the strip. The offensive has thus far left over 500 Palestinians and at least 20 Israelis killed.

The ground invasion shortly followed an official rejection by Hamas of an Egypt-sponsored ceasefire agreement, approved by Israel.

Osama Hamdan, who is responsible for external affairs in Hamas, said in a statement on Saturday that the Egyptian initiative was not in the interest of the Palestinian people and that there “was no serious initiative for us to accept or reject”. Egypt did not officially approach Hamas to participate in the agreement.

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry meanwhile accused on Thursday Turkey, Hamas and Qatar of attempting to “thwart” Egypt’s role in ending the offensive, reported state-run news agency MENA.

Hamas said there are Qatari-Turkish calls, in cooperation with Egypt and other international parties, to “bring an end to aggression on Gaza”.

Egypt and Turkey have suffered from strained relations since the 3 July 2013 military backed ouster of Morsi.

On 23 November 2013, Turkey and Egypt both expelled one another’s ambassadors and downgraded their diplomatic ties to the level of charge d’affairs. The mutual move followed comments Erdogan made, which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs described as garnering “support” for groups aiming to destabilise Egypt and “interference in the internal affairs of the country”.

If you don’t believe this then you are a Zionist Israeli scum!!!

          • Truth..

            If you are not Egyptian, then you have nothing here to comment. What do you mean united? The only thing Arab countries want is to destroy Egypt. All but the gulf countries. And all Unfortunately, because of the extremists, MB and other militant groups think we are infidels! All Christians have as much right to live in Egypt as we Muslims. MB wanted to get rid of all Christians! Christians and Muslims have lived side by side for all these years, in Mubarak’s time, and they were AND still are our brothers and sisters. All of a sudden when MB came to power began to evict (Christians) from their homes and churches were burnt.!? That Was their intention! Just like rats isis doing in Iraq. No thank you! We do not agree with such rats. And people like you are interfering in Egypt’s politics. You are not Egyptians! Fuck off… Dont pity me, pity your self for not having a strong country like our!!

          • Mohammed

            Yes you are right, Muslims and Christians have lived together and ishaallah will continue to live with each other. I am not a MB supporter or a Sisi fan, I am only calling for all Arabs to be united under one voice and as peoples. I say this because I am a muslim and I feel hurt when Egyptians turn on each other. Please do not fight one another and your real enemy is Israel and Not MB. As for ISIS, I do not support them, they are pathetic. Finally I won’t F*** off, just giving my opinion so accept it. I am from Britain actually and we made your country what it is with the French, remember that!!!

Do you think that we would take the MB, the Taliban, isis, al-Qaeda or any other terrorist in hand? Worry about the UK and do not interfere in other countries’ internal affairs! Bye bye ..

    • Abid

      Erdogan is great

  • Egyptian and Proud

    It is quite sad but Turkey’s Erdogan a devout muslim brotherhood supporter can’t get over that he will never be a regional leader, nor will it’s rich side kick Qatar, dream on no caliph empire for either of you ! While sadly as Palestines get killed, Egypt has tried to negotiate a truce to save their lives, but Hamas , who obviously doesnt care for the lost lives, won’t make a deal as it doesn’t serve the agenda laid out by Turkey and Qatar….

    • Truth..

      Thank you for those Words of truth!

    • Mohammed

      Remember you got your asses kicked by Israel

      • Egyptian and Proud

        You need to look up a history book Egyptians defeated Israel in 1973 war, and regained Sinai. As for the general standard of ignorant, fundamentalist, offensive and radical responses that you have demonstrsted, don’t deserve any further responses, nor acknowlegment

    • Bittertruth

      Egypt was badly kicked in six days war by Israel. That’s in history book for you to read. BTW, Turkey and Qatar are the perfect interlocutors for the Gaza crisis. Egypt’s influence is diminishing from time to time for obvious reasons. Egypt should take time to deal with her own countless problems and leave the role of mediation for Qatar and Turkey. Time changes. Events chage with it. Let’s face it.

    • Abid

      Sessi the butcher , playing in the hands of Israelis

      • Truth..

        Hahaha.. Stupid MB lover!!

      • Egyptian and Proud

        His name is President Abdel Fattah el Sisi, President of Egypt, you muslim brotherhood scum bag terrorist sympathiser

    • vision1

      another zionist,

      • Truth..

        Do not worry. They will find you, they will find all the rats!

      • Mohammed

        I am shocked of Egyptians supporting Israel. WTF?

        • Truth..

          Poor little British mohammed seeking comfort from another retard vision1.. Do you feel alone? Poor little retard!

    • Mohammed

      Hamas wants the lifting of the siege so all Palestinians can live freely. What point is there for a truce without any lift of the blockade? Palestinians then would die a slow death. I am shocked by some Egyptians taking the Israeli narrative!! I love Egypt and want your country to be united with all Arabs so the middle East wold be strong and Israel would just go away… I am not your enemy!!

  • Fox Hunter

    Thanks Erdogan, spot on for your remarks about SISI and the jewish terror state (JSIS)…

    egypt is an economic widget since sisi took over. There are only 30 families who are rich, the rest will be struggling to survive.

    For the next 40 years, the egyptians will be beggars of Suud and Israel.

    You need money to have power and be independant like Turkey, Iran or Kazakhstan.

    • Truth..

      And thank you for being a retard…

    • Truth..

      And you need brains to open the mouth and say sensible things. Which you obviously lack!

  • Truth..

    To all those who are fighting to divide and destroy Egypt. You will never succeed, MB is soon gone, Sisi will finish Nasser’s job and you cowardly criminals who exploit opportunities to commit your actions will be found! Egypt will emerge victorious from this. Never forget it …

    • Guest

      MB will soon go and Mujahidun will arrive.

      • David

        Mujahideen are dumb

      • Truth..

        Mujahidun!? Hahahaha do you think of the cowardly little disgusting rats in iraq? Or your mom .. Hahaha. Little, little traitors! If only they dare to set foot on Egyptian soil! Sisi is so far only polite and humane to you. Do not test his or Egyptians patience!

        • Yusuf

          SISI!!! Oh Man! I can’t stop laughing! Egyptain army was defeated by Israel within 6 days, ask your Mom, she will tell you the story. Learn how to fight from Hamas, barely using any heavy weapon how they are fighting. By the way last week 21 of your SISI puppy’s have been taken away in Libya border. This was just to clean a supply route not a proper fight. Wait for the real one’s coming.

          • Truth..

            Of course when you do your cowardly suicide attacks! Otherwise you would have been fucked! Go and fuck your hamas .. They’re good at sacrificing the civilians. Hiding behind civilians and children to shoot their rockets. Thats your fighting skills? I hope that YOU, all like you and the dirty hamas with MB die a painful death! Son of a whore!!

          • Yusuf

            That is what Mujahidin are gonna do when they come Egypt. How your SISI is going to handle this. Remember Israily army is far better then Egytian mercenaries. But you did not say anything about 6 days war!!! How about if US stop paying your SISI mercenary $2 billion every year.

            By the way why do you have use swearing language when you debate. Is that your culture?

          • Truth..

            Yes. Sons of whores like you and your mujahishit. has got everyone to hate Muslims and Islam!. And it is 1.3 billion not 2 son of a whore. Let your mujahishit come .. We’ll give them a nice funeral after we have pissed on them!! Now go and fight behind little Children in Gaza! SON OF A FUCKING WHORE….

          • Yusuf

            Why you are not answering my questions. 6 days war and debating like a civilized person. I can see you are swearing at other people too. It only shows your background and what type of family you are from.

          • Truth..

            Because I can not stand people like you who think you are going to get us on our knees. And the 6 day war, what? We lost it and? Which terrorist group do you belong to? MB pigs? Al Qaeda pig? Or just pigs? Yes, I swear, because I want to.! You and the other persone I swear to probably have the same whore mother! You’re probably not even Egyptian! Sitting somewhere hidden under a rock and starts fires, a little here and a little there. You will never succeed. And you say we are infidels? They will find your cowardly little pigs, they will find you!
