Turkey's dreams of joining the EU took a MAJOR step backward today. Even when Europeans disagree in a diplomatic setting, this is NOT the type of behavior expected by heads of state and/or government. Extreme poor form by the Turkish PM."Mr. Peres, you are older than me. Your voice is too loud," Erdogan told Peres, saying his emotion belied a guilty conscience.
"You kill people," Erdogan told the 85-year-old Israeli leader. "I remember the children who died on beaches. I remember two former prime ministers who said they felt very happy when they were able to enter Palestine on tanks."
When Erdogan was asked to stop, he angrily stalked off, leaving fellow panelists U.N. Secretary-General Ban-Ki moon and Arab League Secretary Amr Moussa.
