New York Times Bashes Outspoken World Leaders - by Stephen Lendman

Turkey's Erdogan unrelenting in assailing Israeli crimes. Russia's Putin outspoken against America's imperial wars.

Few world leaders challenge US and Israeli crimes. Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan often assails Israel, including at a Pretoria, South Africa Turkish foreign policy conference.

On October 5, Haaretz headlined, "Turkey PM: Israel a nuclear threat to Middle East," saying:

On Wednesday, Erdogan called Israel "a threat to the Middle East region for having....nuclear weapon(s)."

Israel's open secret has it one of eight known nuclear powers. 

In his 1997 book, "Open Secrets: Israeli Nuclear and Foreign Policies," Israel Shahak said that "Israel (is) clearly prepar(ing) itself to seek overtly a hegemony over the entire Middle East (with no) hesitati(on) to use for the purpose all means available, including nuclear ones."

Shahak also explained that Israel regards "the launching of missiles (on its territory) as 'nonconventional' regardless of whether they are equipped with explosives or poison gas."

In turn, Israel's nuclear doctrine asserts that a "nonconventional" attack requires a forceful response, implying a nuclear one. Shahak called it the foundation of its grand strategy.

According to Hebrew University's Professor of Military History Martin Van Creveld, "We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you (it) will happen before Israel goes under."

Israel's double standard opposes other regional states acquiring nuclear weapons or technology, but won't give up its own or right to use them preemptively.

Erogan knows Israel's "state terrorism" threat, saying:

"I see Israel as a threat to its region because it has nuclear weapons. In addition, Israel is an occupying force and implements state terrorism in the region."

Moreover, Israel bombed Gaza with white phosphorus. "It is a weapon of mass destruction and it is a crime to use weapons of mass destruction....Gaza was besieged by tanks while it was also attacked with phosphorus bombs."

Israel stockpiles nuclear weapons while Iran "is attacked by everyone" because it has a commercial nuclear program. "What kind of justice is this?"
