They have their share in every bloodshed of Muslim
"We know very well that those who support terrorist organizations with trucks full of weapons for the sake of protecting their interests have a share in the bloodshed of every Muslim," Erdoğan said.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan met with Turkish and Muslim communities in the U.S. at an event held by the Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC).
Delivering a speech during the event, President Erdoğan stated that terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda, DAESH, Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab, and FETO have paved the way for enemies of Islam, and noted that almost all the innocent people massacred by these terrorist organizations were Muslims.
Recalling the Christchurch and the Chapel Hill attacks against Muslims, President Erdoğan drew attention to the attack on the Diyanet Mosque in Newhaven.
"No one can and should remain indifferent to the increasing Islamophobia, xenophobia, and hostility towards refugees in Western countries. Today, neo-Nazi organizations are as dangerous for humanity as DAESH. The determination displayed in the fight against organizations like DAESH and al-Qaeda must definitely be displayed in the fight against these malicious networks. Otherwise, it will be impossible to prevent racist attacks on Muslims, he added.
President Erdoğan pointed to the problems Muslims are faced with in Kashmir, Arakan, Somalia, Yemen, Gaza, al-Quds and Syria.
"As has been the case throughout history, Turkey, today as well, stands against oppressors and stands with the oppressed, regardless of their identities.
Today, Turkey ranks 1st in the world in humanitarian aid in proportion to national income. During a period when developed countries in the world have shut their doors, we have not only opened our doors but also our hearts to oppressed Syrians. We are hosting 5 million refugees who have fled from conflicts, hunger, and oppression," he noted.
"No power or threat can prevent us from protecting the rights of Palestine and al-Quds, our first kiblah,” stressed President Erdoğan.
"The al-Quds cause is not the cause of a handful of Muslims in Palestine, but the dignity, honor and the sacred place of nearly 1.7-billion Islamic world. That is why we say on every platform that al-Quds is our red line. We defend this issue in the strongest manner with the belief that protecting al-Quds means protecting humanity, peace, justice, and independence," he underlined.
Also making warnings about the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), President Erdoğan said: "The biggest feature of FETO is that there is no sacred value or principle that it cannot exploit.
Lies, slanders, and hypocrisy are their characteristics, so to speak. We, together with you, will unmask this terrorist organization, which martyred our 251 people on the night of July 15, across the world.
Underscoring that Turkey will not stop chasing the putschists until all of them have been brought to justice, President Erdoğan stated: "We have determinedly taken the necessary steps in order for the terrorist ringleader in Pennsylvania to be extradited to our country and in order for FETO’s activities in the U.S. to be totally ended, and continue to do so."
