Erdogan: Turkey will never accept military rule in Egypt

Turkey will not recognize Egypt’s Field Marshal Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi who orchestrated the military coup or any other person if elected as president of Egypt, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
Erdogan told Al-Jazeera English that he cannot accept or recognize a regime which came through a military coup, adding that he doubts the Egyptian presidential elections would be fair.
Turkey has witnessed many coups and their perpetrators received high votes. A similar thing could occur in Egypt. Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi won the presidency with 52 per cent of the votes. Only the Egyptian people have the right to dismiss him by democratic means and not with a military coup. This is my position on any coup against democracy and every democratic leader should take the same stance,” he explained.
Egyptian-Turkish relations deteriorated after the Egyptian army ousted elected President Mohamed Morsi on July 3 of last year because of Turkey’s rejection of the coup. The Egyptian military backed government withdrew its ambassador from Ankara in November and reduced diplomatic representation with Turkey. Turkey did not match their response.
The military coup in Egypt is supported by both the United States and the Zionist entity. In July 2013, Israeli ambassador to Egypt told Egyptian agricultural minister, Ayman Abu-Hadid, that Al-Sisi is considered a hero in Israel.Al-Sisi is not a national hero for Egypt, but for all Jews in Israel and around the globe,” said Yaakov Amitai.
According to Canadian Crescent International magazine, Al-Sisi was born to a Moroccan Jewish mother, and therefore, under Israeli law, he is an Israeli citizen.
Egyptian military dictator Al-Sisi, held a meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin on Thursday in Moscow. Al-Sisi was accompanied by Egyptian foreign minister Nabil Fahmy. Putin backed Al-Sisi’s bid for country’s presidency and said:I wish you luck both from myself personally and from the Russian people“.
Al-Sisi is in Moscow to buy $2 billion worth of arms. The money is promised byIsrael-friendly Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Sheikhdoms.
Hillary Mann Leverett is a former Jewish expert on Iran at the NSC (2001-2003). She was one of the few US diplomats allowed to negotiate with Iranian over Afghanistan and Iraq. Al-Jazeera published her Op-Ed on February 11, 2014.
No one in Washington seemed to realize or care that Egyptians forced their pro-American dictator from power on Feb. 11, 2011 — 32 years to the day after the Shah of Iran’s military conceded to the will of the Iranian people, giving birth to the Islamic Republic of Iran and bringing down a pillar of American dominance in the region,” says Hillary.
Putting US strategy in the Middle East on a more positive and productive trajectory will require Washington to accept the region on its own terms, to deal straightforwardly with all relevant (and authentic) actors, and to admit that trying to coercively micromanage political outcomes (for Israeli interests) in Muslim-majority societies isn’t just incompatible with claims to respect popular sovereignty – it is unsustainable and counter-productive for long-term US interests,” she said.
