Erdogan: France Committed Genocide in Algeria

Al-Manar | December 23, 2011

It seems that relations between Turkey and France have deteriorated over a newly-voted bill criminalizing the denial of Armenian genocide.

As the Turkish envoy in France left Paris on Friday, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused his country’s new rival of committing “genocide” in Algeria.

“France massacred an estimated 15 percent of the Algerian population starting from 1945. This is genocide,” Erdogan told a news conference after the French move on a massacre of Armenians by Ottoman-era forces.

The Turkish premier accused French President Nicolas Sarkozy of “fanning hatred between Muslims and Turks for electoral gains.”

Also on Friday, the Turkish envoy in France had left Paris in protest of the new French law.

France is home to around 500,000 citizens of Armenian descent and they are seen as a key source of support for Sarkozy and his UMP ahead of presidential and legislative elections in April and June next year.

Paris appeared to have been caught out by the fury of Turkey’s response.

“I respect the views of our Turkish friends — it’s a great country, a great civilisation — and they must respect ours,” Sarkozy said in Prague where he was at the funeral of late Czech president Vaclav Havel.

On Thursday, France’s National Assembly voted the first step towards passing a law that would impose a jail term and a 45,000 euro fine on anyone in France who denies that the 1915 massacre of Armenians constitutes genocide.

France’s Foreign Minister Alain Juppe called on Turkey not to “overreact” to a bill that he insisted was a parliamentary initiative, and not a project of Sarkozy’s government.

  1. Good, now let it roll, let is roll from capitol to capitol. And that must include the castigation of the United States for genocide generic to its establishment, expansion, and modus operendi internationally, from the Philippines to Vietnam to the ‘War on Terror’ by the world’s worse terrorist state!

    What European nation has clean hands in Africa? How about Asia? Central and South America? And who are they that are positioning their military for what will be World War Three or worldwide destruction, nuclear contamination with its genocidal effects a certainty.

    And let us not forget the genocidal mindset of the Israelis and their foreign assets, coreligionist and atheist. Another insane nuclear power who makes terrorist threats to nuke countries; as does their operative, Barack Obama, the ensconced imposture and arch-war criminal.
