Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Israeli President Shimon Perez off in a most polite and yet firm fashion. He stormed off the stage, an act that delighted peace-loving people around the world. His handsome features were horribly contorted by rage when he was rudely interrupted repeatedly by the biased American (Washington Post) moderator of panel at the Swiss resort of Davos. Erdogan, however, displayed dignity and singleness of mind. He did not mince his words. And, his speech, although cut short, was nevertheless as razor-sharp as a mediaeval Ottoman dagger. Congratulations Erdogan for speaking up against Israeli atrocities against the Palestinian people.
