Turkey's premier attacks Zionism

Zionism is nothing more than the Israeli/Jewish synonym for patriotism, and Tayyip Erdogan can't stand that, so much that he launched one of his nastiest attacks on Israel at the UN:
The comments, made at a United Nations conference on tolerance, were denounced as “dark and mendacious” by the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and condemned the US and the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, who was present and heard them in simultaneous translation.

They also threatened to cause diplomatic embarrassment for the US secretary of state, John Kerry, as he arrived in the Turkish capital Ankara on Friday for talks on Syria.

“As is the case for Zionism, anti-Semitism and fascism, it is inevitable that Islamophobia be considered a crime against humanity,” Mr Erdogan said in a speech to the fifth global forum of the Alliance of Civilizations in Vienna on Wednesday.

After the remark circulated widely on Israeli media, Mr Netanyahu issued an official response, calling it “a dark and mendacious statement the likes of which we thought had passed from the world”.

The Obama administration, which has sought to maintain close ties with Turkey, a NATO ally called Mr Erdogan’s comments “offensive and wrong”.
But will there be any penalties against Turkey's government for Erdogan's sick tirade? Will they stop inviting him to the White House? I sadly assume the answer is no. In any case, Erdogan has once again proven his non-commitment to civilization, and nobody should be doing business with that awful country.
