Today I do not only want to speak to my dear people but to all of humanity.
I want to call to the conscience and hearts and minds of the whole of humanity, I would like to share courageously my feelings.
Yesterday, in the darkest moment of the night two bloody attacks occurred.
The first of them was the terrorist attack against our military troop at the Iskenderun Naval Base. In this malicious, vicious attack six of our soldiers died, and they have become martyrs. Seven of our soldiers have been injured.
The second, at dawn in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the heart of humanity has taken one of her heaviest wounds in history. The aid ships, from the humanitarian heart, these flowing aid ships have been hindered with guns, by violence, despotism.
They, who with mercy, compassion and humaneness, loaded onto these ships, they could not reach their place of destination, they were wreaked in carnage.
Yesterday, beginning in the morning hours, armed elements of the Israeli Army stopped humanitarian aid being brought to the Gazan people, from more than 32 countries, with 600 people inside carried by the Free Gaza Flotilla, in international waters, in an absolutely illegal way did they attack, spilling the blood of innocent humans.
At this violent attack, resulting in casualties and persons being wounded, the humanitarian aid ships were seized and sequestered. This inhuman attack against those women, young people, religious functionaries that the ship was carrying, I do one more time strongly, severely condemn.
I have declared in Chile. Here I do stress it one more time. The bloody massacre of Israel, brought against the ships bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza is a massacre deserving of any kind of curse and condemnation. This is openly an attack against international law, against the heart of humanity, against world peace, I say against the heart of humanity, for, on those ships were people from all nations, all religions. People alone and they only were bringing humanitarian aid to those under blockade, embargo, to the people in Gaza. The ships, before they left openly declared to the entire world their cargo, their intention, their mission. As witness to this openly humanitarian aid from the world and our country 60 journalists have entered the ships as well. In international waters, in open sea, this armed attack against 600 people and 6 ships which were carrying aid to oppressed people, poor people, to starved people, to people whose homes were destroyed â€“ this was openly an attack against the basic philosophy of the United Nations.
The ships which set sail, be it from Turkey be it from other countries, were completely stocked to carry out the humanitarian purpose, having aid material. They were, according to international traffic rules, strictly controlled. At the same time on the ships were no other passengers than civilians and aid volunteers. The ships were flying white flags. Despite all those conditions the ships were subject to an armed attack.
As you know we were during that time on our Latin America program. Due to this abhorrent terrorist attack which occurred in Hatay and Israel’s illegal attack against aid ships, we had to cut our work sort in Chile and return to our country. From the very first moment we had been watching the events closely. We have taken the necessary steps, together with our friends in Turkey. Yesterday morning at 6:30, deputy BÃ¼lent ArÄ±nÃ§, together with related ministers and administration representatives, organised an evaluation meeting in which we have considered the issue in all its dimensions. Our Foreign Ministry, our intelligence units, related establishments and armed forces have been monitoring the issue very closely.
Our Minister of Foreign Affairs and our Minister of Defense, talking on the phone with Israel’s Minister of Defense, forcefully put forth our reaction and sensitivities. And I, together with my ministers, evaluating the events during the entire night, have been continuously in contact with Turkey. On the other hand I have established contacts with the international community and for now this process continues. In this framework, I have put on the table everything necessary to do in all the dimensions of this situation. I urgently I did the steps necessary. The Republic of Turkey is using all possibilities, every chance made available by international law and diplomacy. And Turkey will keep using it. In this framework, Turkey’s ambassador to Tel Aviv has been called back. Three joint military operations which were on the agenda have been cancelled. Our Minister of Foreign Affairs went to New York and The UN Security Council has been called for an urgent meeting and it was ensured that there would be an urgent, extraordinary meeting. The UN Security Council has made a statement condemning Israel. It has been pointed out in the statement the need to open an investigation, to set free immediately the civilians and the injured. The matches of our youth football team have been cancelled. NATOâ€™s Council has been called for an extraordinary meeting. Furthermore, the Organisation of Islamic Conference, the Arab League, European Union and all related establishments have been contacted, international institutions have been called to duty. The Organisation of Islamic Conference will hold a meeting on Monday.
Primarily, the safety and security of the convoy and our citizens in the convoy has to be ensured. Necessities to ensure the treatment of the injured are being taken care of. Israel has said: "Let us send the injured to you." We have replied that we have the will and power to take our injured ourselves, and we have refused this offer. Two military ambulance aircrafts have taken off to bring our injured back. And now, they shall be taking our injured, and then returning to this destination. With civil aircraft the Ministry of Health is about to arrive there. To the Israeli Ambassador, who was summoned to the Foreign Ministry, a call was made to demand the immediate return of the citizens of the Turkish Republic, and setting the captured ships free.
Further, all efforts to attend to the treatment of the injured, bringing them to Turkey, have been made and in our country all measures have been taken. Israel, hindering the international communityâ€™s access to information from the first moment of the incident, now must inform the world public opinion in a truthful way, and must not refrain from international cooperation. Israel must understand the seriousness of the situation and must stop committing actions such as this that are wrong. Israel’s attitude at this stage is being watched by the world’s people, the public opinion is forming its views. Those who are affiliated with the effort are in touch and are coordinating with the countries whose citizens are in the flotilla.
The ships fly the flags of Turkey, Greece and the Comore Islands, there are people from 32 countries involved. I expect those countries, too, to show the necessary reaction and sensitivity. Thus I once again express that Israel must immediately lift the inhuman embargo against Gaza. [15 seconds applause]. Israel must not hinder that the humanitarian aid reaches its destination.
Dear comrades, as you know do we prosecute together with Spain the Alliance of Civilisationsâ€™ work. Our goal and mission is to reinforce the conviction that different religions, different civilisations and cultures can live in peace and tolerance together. It is a struggle so that instead of hatred and animosity, love will dominate.
Regrettably I must say, the incidents which occurred yesterday, in terms of humanityâ€™s collective civilisation and culture have been a black mark. In terms of history of humanity this has been recorded as a major shame. Attacking humanitarian aid ships with arms, to massacre innocent people, treating civilians as terrorists is in terms of humanity a great defeat. A despicably cowardly and vicious act of presumption that is recklessness and dauntless. [20 seconds applause].
We know, war as well as peace has its laws. In war you do not attack children, in war you do not attack women, old people, in war you do not attack civilians or religious functionaries, in war you do not attack those who are hoisting the white flag, health and rescue personnel; not in wartime, but in peace time, those who do these things not only violate the law, at the same time they trample humanity under their feet, they abandon humanity.
Despots, gangsters even pirates have specific sensitiveness, follow some specific morals. Those who do not follow any morality or ethics, those who do not act with any sensitivity, to call them such names would even be a compliment to them. Israel has, by attacking a ship with volunteers from 32 countries, in fact defied the world. World peace has been deeply wounded. This brazen, irresponsible, reckless government that recognises no law and tramples on any kind of humanitarian virtue, this attack of the Israeli government by all means â€“ but by all means, must be punished.
A government, having made lying its state policy and does not blush on account of the crime it commits, instead of expecting them to open an investigation, the international community must investigate this incident in all its dimensions and must give the legal response.
The State of Turkey wonâ€™t be satisfied only by watching this. Turkey is not an adolescent, rootless state. It is in no way a tribal State! No one should attempt to play around with this nation, to test the patience of Turkey. As precious as Turkeyâ€™s partnership is, so harsh will be her hostility.
Losing Turkeyâ€™s friendship and partnership is a price itself to pay. We have always been in a historical friendship and collaboration with the Israeli and Jewish people. I do so believe, those Israeli people who watched this bloody attack in tears, who strongly criticise it, do understand very well that this incident does not befit human dignity, is a great mistake, how a heavy hit strike it has been to the friendship of both countries.
The issue is not a matter between Turkey and Israel. The issue is Israelâ€™s present lawlessness, and recognising the present governmentâ€™s inhuman practices, using violence, spilling blood, showing approaches that threaten peace.
Turkey has always been, in the Middle East, on the side of peace. She has contributed to regional stability and security. In the recent past, for Israelâ€™s relations with Palestine, Syria and Lebanon to be normalized, the country contributing was also Turkey. Israel now is showing attitudes, taking the most important peace defender in the region, and opposing her. Israel from now on, must give up the carelessness it shows in explaingin the injustice being practised with their justifications about security, criticism that they call anti-semitism.
There is an understanding where violence is its policy, Israel sees that it is licit for itself to oppress, tyrannize, maltreat and she does not hesitate to shed blood. There is no longer any way for the illegal actions of Israel to be covered, to be misinterpreted intentionally, to be ignored. The time has come for the International community to say: STOP!
It is Israel who does not recognise over 100 UN Security Council resolutions against her. So, the United Nations cannot be content with the condemnation decision it has taken last night.
I just talked to the General Secretary of the United Nations. He is also coming to New York. And this evening at 8 oâ€™clock Mr. Obama said he would, I will also talk to him. I declare here that I will share precisely these issues with them.
Israelâ€™s aggressive manner doubtlessly takes its source from the power they get from elsewhere. At this point, as Turkey our precision is obvious. And I talked yesterday from Chile with one of United Nations Security Council permanent members, Mrs. Merkel. I spoke with others today. I talked to Englandâ€™s new Prime Minister, he called as well, I am also going to talk to him, I called him earlier and we talked, today we will discuss this again. And with the others we will also talk.
We cannot leave Israel with what they have done, alone. We cannot say to the Israeli government, all you do will go to your advantage. Everything has a price. And this government will have to pay for this.
For this kind of comprehension that does not show respect for human life, that they find it impossible to esteem any right and law, we cannot have a peaceful attitude, my comrades.
It is impossible to support a comprehension that does not esteem and respect the human and human rights.
A State considering the security of its own people cannot achieve this by obtaining the hate and hostility of the whole world with their actions.
An administration that does not esteem others as humans except its own people cannot have a concern called peace.
Israel has been destroying her defense shields one by one, losing one by one her alliance points, isolating herself. The Israeli administration, generating grudges and hatred in the Middle East, is setting dynamite off in regional peace, as an instability is spreading, Pandoraâ€™s Box comes out like iodine.
The international community must immediately take action.
I also want to call to the Israeli people from here. We have always been against anti-semitism. We have raised our voice against the injustice against the Jewish people. We have contributed so that the Israeli people can live in peace and security in the Middle East. Now, as the Israeli people it is your turn to show the same sensitive attitude, the same humane attitude, to say, â€œStop these cruelties being done.â€
The policy of violence shown by the coalition of the government, violating any kind of right and law, is totally putting Israelâ€™s interests aside. Is clearly putting your peace and security at risk. Due to the aggressive attitude of your government, the State of Israel assumes a piracy position, engaging in banditry.
Those reckless administrators, thinking that they, with lies, deceit, shedding blood, aggressiveness, piracy, using state terrorism, the massacre of innocent people do govern a State. But those reckless politicians primarily do evil to Israel and the Israeli people.
Before all else you must say stop to this situation. By the way, I thank the Turkish Jewish Community, putting in words their right and sincere reaction to the event. Our Jewish citizens have, as members of the Turkish people, defended, and continue to defend the right position of Turkey to the utmost.
Looking with hatred upon our Jewish citizens or being in any other different manner by anyone is not acceptable, it cannot be and should never be.
Dear brothers, sisters, today is a new day. Today is a new beginnig, a birth. Nothing will be like before, this is clearly apparent. An aggressive State which openly murders, massacres, cannot explain itself to humanity without regretting, without being held to account for it, cannot stand in the face of the international community.
Those ships were all ships of mercy. And their cargo was the heart of humanity.
72 miles far from their own waters, entirely in open sea and international waters, Israel carried out an operation on a ship, a civil ship, not a military ship, one is not allowed even do this at all. To make an operation on a civil ship, even the capture of the passengers is itself a crime. Attacking innocent people with arms, to shed blood, and to massacre is clearly state terrorism. They deny, they say that they were shot at. We are sick of your lies, we are sick. Be honest, honest, be honest.
The captured ships, together with the staff and volunteers immediately must be released. With the volunteers (activists) and Members of the European Parliament, 60 journalists, with his mother on board, the one yeare old infant Kaan, who was released, on the ships, no one has the right to show those ships as if they had any other intention, purpose, mission than to deliver humanitarian aid. This attack has one more time clearly proved the inhuman oppression and cruelty Israel for years has been using regarding Palestine and Gaza.
I have said it once before. The Israeli administrators, whom we told into their face how well they know to murder, have one more time shown the world how good they indeed are in massacre. A comprehension, handcuffing even heavily wounded innocent people they have shot at. Hey! Can there be an explanation for his? Lying on the stretcher, wounded, you even handcuff him! Can that be explained with human rights, with universal values? It is no longer possible to tell the world how much those were shown humanity.
All people of the earth condemn this clear cruelty, I know this. But it is not enough anymore to only condemn, we have to obtain results.
All people on earth who want justice on earth, one day not power but justice will dominate, you should know that, I want this.
Turkey will use all opportunities that international law allows. At this course we will move together with the international community. I want all humanity to attract attention to this issue. With her blood-shedding policy Israel cannot legitimate this illegal, this bloody murder with any excuse, she cannot explain it.
Israel, with no excuse, no reason can wash the blood on her hands. The issue, case created by the bloody attack in the Mediterrenean Sea, is not the problem between two countries but the problem of the entire world. I believe that no country considering humane values and virtues, no international institution will just watch a murder of these dimensions.
From now on, whoever shuts their eyes to the bloody attacks of Israel, whoever ignores them, should know, they are accomplices of these murders. It has been understood that the matter is not a matter of defending against terrorism, that the matter is not struggle against terrorism, but that the matter is an effort of a massacre towards a city, towards all people of a city, in order to completely exterminate them, has one more time been proven with this last incident that occurred.
You throw bombs on these people, you try phosphorous bombs on these people, you bomb hospitals, you bomb mosques, you attack schools, you bomb playgrounds, you even aim at the UN Office, as if this illegality was not enough, you also cut off all kinds of needs of those people.
And after all of this, you wonâ€™t withhold the aid volunteers who try to deliver to these people medicine, food, construction materials, to feel your inhuman savagery.
Anyone, everyone can condone, tolerate this illegality. I opnely say, stressing it, insidiously can support it, but Israel should not make the mistake of comparing Turkey with others. Such a mistake will have a very high price.
Israel, who shot a bullet on innocence and mercy, has chosen with this murder in the open sea, solitariness against the whole world. Has chosen to be isolated.
I say it one more time. If everyone keeps silent, if all shut their eyes, if all turn their backs; we, as Turkey, we wonâ€™t turn our back to Palestine, to the Palestinian people, to Gaza. We wonâ€™t shut our eyes! We wonâ€™t cease crying for Palestine!!!
My dear brothers and sisters, our nation has to be firm. Our people must have dignity worthy of Turkey. We will take it into our hearts. The wounds of our wounded we will all together heal.
We are aware with satisfaction that all around in Turkey our people with a great sensitiveness are watching the issue closely, they are showing their democratic reactions lawfully.
To say it, this is appropriate for our people. I believe that all our citizens will keep their steadfastness, and move in dignity and common sense. Everyone should know and be sure, the love and friendship ships flowing down from the heart of humanity will pass one day all hindrance, barricades and reach their destination.To those who stand behind this inhuman, this inhuman and illegal operation;
As much as you stand behind illegality, we stand behind laws.
As much as you stand behind the bloody operation, aggressivenes, behind terror, as much do we stand behind justice.
As much as you stand against civilians, against the oppressed in Gaza, Palestine as much stand we next to, behind civilians, innocent people, the Palestinian people, the people in Gaza.
We have been honoured having this status through history, we are proud of it, and also from now on we will continue to act and move with the mission our history, civilisation and State tradition has given us.
BugÃ¼n sadece aziz milletime deÃ°il bÃ¼tÃ¼n insanlÃ½Ã°a seslenmek istiyorum.
BÃ¼tÃ¼n insanlÃ½Ã°Ã½n vicdanÃ½na ve aklÃ½na seslenmek, duygularÃ½mÃ½ aÃ§Ã½k yÃ¼reklilikle paylaÃ¾mak istiyorum.
DÃ¼n, gecenin en karanlÃ½k anÃ½nda iki kanlÃ½ saldÃ½rÃ½ gerÃ§ekleÃ¾ti.
Bunlardan birincisi Ãskenderun’daki Deniz Ãœs KomutanlÃ½Ã°Ã½’ndaki askeri birliÃ°imize yÃ¶nelik terÃ¶rist saldÃ½rÃ½ydÃ½. Bu hain saldÃ½rÃ½da 6 askerimiz Ã¾ehit oldu, 7 askerimiz ise yaralandÃ½.
Ãkincisi fecir vaktinde Akedeniz sularÃ½nda insanlÃ½k vicdanÃ½ tarihin en aÃ°Ã½r yaralarÃ½ndan birini aldÃ½. ÃnsanlÃ½Ã°Ã½n vicdanÃ½ndan sÃ¼zÃ¼len yardÃ½m gemileri silahla zorbalÃ½kla engellendi.
YÃ¼kÃ¼ merhamet ve Ã¾efkat olan gemiler menzillerine varamadÃ½, kana bulandÃ½.
DÃ¼n sabaha doÃ°ru Ãsrail ordusuna ait silahlÃ½ unsurlar Gazze halkÃ½na insani yardÃ½m gÃ¶tÃ¼ren 32 Ã¼lkeden den 600 insanÃ½n iÃ§inde bulunduÃ°u Gazzeye Ã¶zgÃ¼rlÃ¼k filosuna uluslararasÃ½ sularda tamamen hukusuz bir Ã¾ekilde saldÃ½rÃ½da bulundu, masum insanlarÃ½n kanÃ½nÃ½ dÃ¶ktÃ¼.
Ã–lÃ¼lerin ve yaralÃ½larÃ½n olduÃ°u bu kanlÃ½ saldÃ½rÃ½da insani yardÃ½m gemilerine de el konuldu. KadÃ½nlarÃ½n, Ã§ocuklarÃ½n, din adamlarÃ½n, ve tamamen sivillerin bulunduÃ°u gemilere yapÃ½lan bu insanlÃ½k dÃ½Ã¾Ã½ saldÃ½ryÃ½ bir kez daha Ã¾iddetle lanetliyorum.
Åžili’de aÃ§Ä±kladÄ±m. Burada bir kez daha vurguluyorum. Ä°srail’in Gazze’ye insani yardÄ±m gÃ¶tÃ¼ren gemilere yaptÄ±ÄŸÄ± kanlÄ± katliam her tÃ¼rlÃ¼ laneti hakketmiÅŸ bir katliamdÄ±r. yapÄ±lan bu saldÄ±rÄ± aÃ§Ä±kÃ§a uluslarasaÄ± hukuka yapÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r, insanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±n vicdanÄ±na yapÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r, dÃ¼nya barÄ±ÅŸÄ±na yapÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r, insanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±n vicdanÄ±na diyorum, zira o gemilerde her milletten, her dinden, insanlar sadece ama sadece abluka altÄ±ndaki ambrao altÄ±ndaki gazzeye insani yardÄ±m gÃ¶tÃ¼yÃ¼yorlardÄ±. gemiler hareket etmeden Ã¶nce bÃ¼tÃ¼n dÃ¼nyaya yÃ¼klerini, niyetlerini aÃ§Ä±kÃ§a deklare etmiÅŸtir , bu aÃ§Ä±k insani yardÄ±mÄ±n ÅŸahidi olarak dÃ¼nyadan ve Ã¼lkemizden 60 tane gazeteci gazzeye hareket eden yardÄ±m filosu ile birlikte gemilere binmiÅŸtir. ululslararasÄ± sularda aÃ§Ä±k denizde, mazlum insanlara, yoksul insanlara, aÃ§ bÄ±rakÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸ, evleri yÄ±kÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸ Filistinlilere yardÄ±m gÃ¶tÃ¼ren 600 insana ve 6 gemiye karÅŸÄ± yapÄ±lan bu silahlÄ± saldÄ±rÄ±nÄ±n BirleÅŸimiÅŸ Milletlerin temel felsefesine yapÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸ olduÄŸu aÃ§Ä±ktÄ±r.
Gerek TÃ¼rkiye’den gerek diÃ°er Ã¼lkelerden hareket eden gemiler tamamen insani amaÃ§lÃ½ yardÃ½m malzemeleleri ile yÃ¼klÃ¼ydÃ¼ler. UluslararasÃ½ seyrÃ¼sefer kurallarÃ½ Ã§erÃ§evesinden sÃ½kÃ½ bir Ã¾ekilde kontrol edilmiÃ¾lerdir, aynÃ½ zamanda gemilerde sivillerden, yardÃ½m gÃ¶nÃ¼llÃ¼lerden baÃ¾ka yolcu bulunmamaktaydÃ½. Gemilere beyaz bayrak Ã§ekilmiÃ¾ti. TÃ¼m bu Ã¾artalara raÃ°men gemiler silahlÃ½ saldÃ½rÃ½ya maruz kaldÃ½.
BildiÄŸiniz gibi biz o sÄ±rada Latin Amerika programÄ±ndaydÄ±k. Hatay’da meydana gelen mefhur terÃ¶rist saldÄ±rÄ± ve Ä°srail’in yardÄ±m gemilerine yÃ¶nelik hukuksuz saldÄ±rÄ±sÄ± nedeniyle Åžili’deki temaslarÄ±mÄ±zÄ± yarÄ±da keserek Ã¼lkemize dÃ¶ndÃ¼k. OlayÄ±n ilk anÄ±ndan itibaren bakan arkadÅŸlarÄ±mla, milletvekili arkadaÅŸlarÄ±mla birlikte geliÅŸmeleri yakÄ±ndan izledik. Gereken adÄ±mlarÄ± TÃ¼rkiye’de arkadaÅŸlarÄ±mla mÃ¼ÅŸeterek atmaya baÅŸladÄ±k. DÃ¼n sabah 6.30da baÅŸbakanvekili olarak sayÄ±n BÃ¼lent ArÄ±nÃ§, ilgili bakanlar ve kurum temsilcileriyle deÄŸerlendirme toplantÄ±sÄ± gerÃ§ekleÅŸtirerek meseleyi tÃ¼m boyutlarÄ±yla ele aldÄ±k. dÄ±ÅŸ iÅŸlerÅŸi bakanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±mÄ±z, istihbarat birimlerimiz, ilgili kurumlarÄ±mÄ±z ve silahlÄ± kuvvetlerimiz geliÅŸmeleri Ã§ok yakÄ±ndan takip ettiler.
DÄ±ÅŸiÅŸleri bakanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±mÄ±z ve Savunma BakanÄ±mÄ±z Ä°srail Savunma BakanÄ±’Ä±yle telefon gÃ¶rÃ¼ÅŸmesi yapararak tepkimizi ve hasassiyetlerimizi ortaya koyduk. Ben de birlikte olduÄŸumuz bakanlarÄ±mÄ±zla yaÅŸananlarÄ± gece boyunca deÄŸerlendirerek TÃ¼rkiye’yle sÃ¼rekli temas halinde oldum. Bu arada uluslar arasÄ± camiayla da irtibatlar kurdum ve ÅŸu anda da bu sÃ¼reÃ§ devam ediyor. Bu Ã§erÃ§evede yapÄ±lmasÄ± gerekenleri tÃ¼m boyutlarÄ±yla masaya yatÄ±rdÄ±m. Ä°vedilikle gereken adÄ±mlarÄ± atmaya baÅŸladÄ±m. TÃ¼rkiye Cumhuriyeti, uluslar arasÄ± hukukun ve diplomasinin tÃ¼m imkanlarÄ±nÄ± kullanmaktadÄ±r. Bundan sonra da kullanacaktÄ±r. Bu Ã§erÃ§evede TÃ¼rkiye’nin, Tev Aviv BÃ¼yÃ¼kelÃ§isi geri Ã§aÄŸrÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r. Ä°srail’le gÃ¼ndemde olan 3 tane mÃ¼ÅŸterek askeri tatbikat iptal edilmiÅŸtir. DÄ±ÅŸiÅŸleri bakanÄ±mÄ±z New York’a gitmiÅŸ ve BirleÅŸmiÅŸ Milletler GÃ¼venlik Konsey’i acilen toplantÄ±ya Ã§aÄŸrÄ±larak olaÄŸanÃ¼stÃ¼ gÃ¶rÃ¼ÅŸme yapÄ±lmasÄ± saÄŸlanmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r. BirleÅŸmiÅŸ Milletler GÃ¼venlik Konseyi Ä°srail’i kÄ±nayan aÃ§Ä±klama yapmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r. AÃ§Ä±klamalarÄ±nda soruÅŸturma aÃ§Ä±lmasÄ±, sivillerin ve yaralÄ±larÄ±n derhal serbest bÄ±rakÄ±lmasÄ± belirtilmiÅŸtir. Ä°srail’de bulunan GenÃ§ Milli Futbol takÄ±mÄ±mÄ±zÄ±n yapacaÄŸÄ± maÃ§larÄ± iptal edilmiÅŸtir. Nato konseyi bugÃ¼n olaÄŸanÃ¼stÃ¼ toplantÄ±ya Ã§aÄŸrÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r. AyrÄ±ca Islam KonferansÄ± Ã–rgÃ¼tÃ¼, Arap BirliÄŸi, Avrupa BirliÄŸi ve ilgili tÃ¼m kuruluÅŸlarla gereken temaslar kurulmakta uluslara rasÄ± kuruluÅŸlar gÃ¶reve davet edilmektedir. Ä°slam KonferansÄ± Ã¶rgÃ¼tÃ¼ Pazartesi gÃ¼nÃ¼ toplanacaktÄ±r.
Ã–ncelikle insani yardÄ±m konvoyunun ve konvoyda bulunan vatandaÅŸlarÄ±mÄ±zÄ±n can gÃ¼venlik ve selametlerinin saÄŸlanmasÄ±, yaralÄ±larÄ±n sÃ¼ratle tedavil edilmelerin temini iÃ§in gerekenler yapÄ±lmaktadÄ±r. Ä°srail, yaralÄ±larÄ± biz gÃ¶nderleim demiÅŸtir. Biz, kendi yaralÄ±larÄ±mÄ±zÄ± alacak iradeye ve gÃ¼ce sahibiz diyerek onlarÄ±n bu teklifini redd ettik. Ä°ki askeri ambulans uÃ§aÄŸÄ± yaralÄ±larÄ± almak iÃ§in hareket etmiÅŸtir. Ve ÅŸu anda, oradan yaralÄ±larÄ±mÄ±zÄ± almÄ±ÅŸ bu yÃ¶ne dÃ¶nmÃ¼ÅŸlerdir. Sivil uÃ§aklarla SaÄŸlÄ±k BakanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±mÄ±z da oraya ulaÅŸmak Ã¼zeredir. DÄ±ÅŸiÅŸlerine Ã§aÄŸrÄ±lan Ä°srail BÃ¼yÃ¼kelÃ§isi’ne, TÃ¼rkiye Cumhuriyeti vatandaÅŸlarÄ±nÄ±n bir an evvel iadesi, ve el konulan gemilerin serbest bÄ±rakÄ±lmasÄ± Ã§aÄŸrÄ±sÄ± yapÄ±lmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r.
AyrÄ±ca tÃ¼m yaralÄ±larÄ±nÄ±n tedavileri TÃ¼rkiye’ye getirelerek yapÄ±lmasÄ± iÃ§in tÃ¼m gereken giriÅŸimlerde bulunulmuÅŸ, ve Ã¼lkemizde de tedbirler alÄ±nmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r. OlayÄ±n yaÅŸandÄ±ÄŸÄ± ilk andan itibaren uluslar arasÄ± toplumun bilgi almasÄ±nÄ± engelleyen Ä°srail’in dÃ¼nya kamuoyunu doÄŸru bilgilendirmesi ve uluslararasÄ± iÅŸbirliÄŸinden kaÃ§Ä±nmamasÄ± gerekmektedir. Ä°srail bir an Ã¶nce durumun vehametini anlamalÄ± ve yanlÄ±ÅŸ yapmaya devam etmemelidir. Ä°srail’in bu aÅŸamada sergileyeceÄŸi tavÄ±r da tÃ¼m dÃ¼nya kamuoyunca ibretle izlenmektedir. Ä°lgili arkadaÅŸlarÄ±mÄ±z konvoyda vatandaÅŸlarÄ± bulunan ilgili Ã¼lkelerle temas ve eÅŸgÃ¼dÃ¼m iÃ§indedir.
Gemiler, TÃ¼rkiye, Yunanistan, Komor AdalarÄ± bandÄ±ralÄ±, 32 Ã¼lkeden insan bulunmaktadÄ±r. Bu Ã¼lkelerin de gereken tepkiyi ve duyarlÄ±lÄ±ÄŸÄ± sergilemesini bekliyorum. Bu vesileyle bir kez daha ifade ediyorum. Ä°srail, Gazze’ye yÃ¶nelik insanlÄ±k dÄ±ÅŸÄ± ambargoyu derhal kaldÄ±rmalÄ±dÄ±r. Filistin halkÄ±na gÃ¶nderilen insani yardÄ±mlarÄ±n yerine ulaÅŸtÄ±rÄ±lmasÄ±na engel olmamalÄ±dÄ±r.
DeÃ°erli arkadaÃ¾lar, biz bildiÃ°iniz gibi Ãspanya ile birlikte Medeniyetler ÃttifakÃ½ Ã§alÃ½Ã¾masÃ½nÃ½ yÃ¼rÃ¼tÃ¼yoruz. AmacÃ½mÃ½z farklÃ½ dinlerin, medeniyetlerin, kÃ¼ltÃ¼rlerin, bir arada barÃ½Ã¾ ve hoÃ¾gÃ¶rÃ¼ iÃ§inde yaÃ¾ayabilecekleri dÃ¼Ã¾Ã¼ncesini gÃ¼Ã§lendirmek, kin ve nefret yerine sevginin hakim olmasÃ½ iÃ§in Ã§aba gÃ¶stermektir.
ÃœzÃ¼lerek sÃ¶ylemeliyim ki dÃ¼n yaÃ¾anan olaylar, insanlÃ½Ã°Ã½n ortak medeniyeti ve kÃ¼ltÃ¼rÃ¼ aÃ§Ã½sÃ½ndan kara bir leke olmuÃ¾tur. ÃnsanlÃ½k tarihi aÃ§Ã½sÃ½ndan bÃ¼yÃ¼k bir ayÃ½p olarak kayda geÃ§miÃ¾tir. Ãnsani yardÃ½m gemilerine silahlarla saldÃ½rÃ½da bulunmak , masum insanlarÃ½ katletmek , sivil insanlara terÃ¶rist muamelesi yapmak insanlÃ½k aÃ§Ã½sÃ½ndan bÃ¼yÃ¼k bir sÃ¼kuttur, alÃ§akÃ§a bir pervasÃ½zlÃ½ktÃ½r.

Biz biliyoruz ki savaÃ¾Ã½n da, barÃ½Ã¾Ã½n da bir hukuku vardÃ½r. SavaÃ¾ta Ã§ocuklara saldÃ½rÃ½lmaz, savaÃ¾ta kadÃ½nlara yaÃ¾lÃ½lara saldÃ½rÃ½lmaz, savaÃ¾ta sivillere din adamlarÃ½na saldÃ½rÃ½lmaz, savaÃ¾ta beyaz bayrak Ã§ekenlere, saÃ°lÃ½k gÃ¶revlilerine, yardÃ½m gÃ¶revlilerine saldÃ½rÃ½lmaz, savaÃ¾ta deÃ°il barÃ½Ã¾ta bunlara saldÃ½ranlar ise sadece hukuku Ã§iÃ°nemekle kalmazlar. AynÃ½ zamanda insanlÃ½Ã°Ã½ da ayaklar altÃ½na almÃ½Ã¾, insanlÃ½ktan Ã§Ã½kmÃ½Ã¾ olurlar.
ZorbalarÄ±n, haydutlarÄ±n, korsanlarÄ±n bile belli hasassiyetleri olur, belli ahlak kurallarÄ±na uyarlar. HiÃ§bir ahlak kuralÄ±na, hiÃ§bir hasassiyete uymayana bu sÄ±fatlarÄ± yakÄ±ÅŸtÄ±rmak bile iltifat olur.
Ä°srail, 32 milletten gÃ¶nÃ¼llÃ¼lerin bulunduÄŸu bir gemiye saldÄ±rarak adeta dÃ¼nyaya meydan okumuÅŸtur. DÃ¼nya barÄ±ÅŸÄ± Ã§ok bÃ¼yÃ¼k bir yara almÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r. Ä°srail hÃ¼kÃ¼metinin bu cÃ¼retkar, bu sorumsuz, bu pervasÄ±z, bu hak hukuk tanÄ±mayan, her tÃ¼rlÃ¼ insani erdemi ayaklar altÄ±na alan saldÄ±rÄ±sÄ±. Mutlaka ama mutlaka cezalandÄ±rÄ±lmalÄ±dÄ±r.
Yalan sÃ¶ylemeyi, devlet politikasÃ½ haline getiren ve iÃ¾lediÃ°i suÃ§tan yÃ¼zÃ¼ kÃ½zarmayan bir yÃ¶netimden soruÃ¾turma beklemek yerine uluslar arasÃ½ camia bu olayÃ½ tÃ¼m boyutlarÃ½yla soruÃ¾turmalÃ½ ve hukuki karÃ¾Ã½lÃ½Ã°Ã½nÃ½ da vermelidir.
TÃ¼rkiye olarak bu iÃ¾in peÃ¾ini bÃ½rakmayacaÃ°Ã½z. TÃ¼rkiye, yeni yetme, kÃ¶ksÃ¼z bir devlet deÃ°ildir. Bir kabile devleti hiÃ§ deÃ°ildir. Kimse TÃ¼rkiye ile aÃ¾Ã½k atmaya, TÃ¼rkiyeâ€™nin sabrÃ½nÃ½ test etmeye kalkmamalÃ½dÃ½r. TÃ¼rkiyeâ€™nin dostluÃ°u ne kadar kÃ½ymetliyse, dÃ¼Ã¾manlÃ½Ã°Ã½ da o kadar Ã¾iddetlidir.
TÃ¼rkiyeâ€™nin dostluÃ°unu kaybetmek ile baÃ¾lÃ½ baÃ¾Ã½na bir bedeldir. Biz, Ãsrail halkÃ½yla, Musevilerle her zaman tarihi bir dostluk ve iÃ¾birliÃ°i iÃ§inde olduk. ÃnanÃ½yorum ki bu kanlÃ½ saldÃ½rÃ½yÃ½ gÃ¶zyaÃ¾larÃ½yla izleyen, Ã¾iddetle eleÃ¾tiren Ãsrailli insanlar bu olayÃ½n insanlÃ½k onuruna yakÃ½Ã¾mayan ne kadar bÃ¼yÃ¼k bir yanlÃ½Ã¾ olduÃ°unu, iki Ã¼lkenin dostluÃ°una vurulmuÃ¾ ne kadar aÃ°Ã½r bir darbe olduÃ°unu Ã§ok iyi anlamaktadÃ½r.
Mesele TÃ¼rkiye ile Ãsrail arasÃ½nda yaÃ¾anan bir mesele deÃ°ildir. Mesele Ãsrailâ€™in hak hukuk tanÃ½mayan mevcut yÃ¶netiminin insanlÃ½k dÃ½Ã¾Ã½ uygulamalarla, Ã¾iddet uygulamasÃ½, kan dÃ¶kmesi, barÃ½Ã¾Ã½ tehdit eden yaklaÃ¾Ã½mlar sergilemesidir.
TÃ¼rkiye her zaman OrtadoÃ°uâ€™da barÃ½Ã¾tan yana olmuÃ¾tur. BÃ¶lgesel istikrar ve gÃ¼venliÃ°e katkÃ½da bulunmuÃ¾tur. YakÃ½n geÃ§miÃ¾te Ãsrailâ€™in Filistinâ€™le, Suriyeâ€™yle, LÃ¼bnan ile iliÃ¾kilerinin normalleÃ¾mesi iÃ§in ne Ã§aba gÃ¶steren Ã¼lke yine TÃ¼rkiye olmuÃ¾tur. Ãsrail Ã¾imdi, bÃ¶lgedeki en Ã¶nemli barÃ½Ã¾ savunucularÃ½ndan birini karÃ¾Ã½sÃ½na alacak tutumlar takÃ½nmaktadÃ½r. Ãsrail artÃ½k yaptÃ½Ã°Ã½ haksÃ½zlÃ½klarÃ½, gÃ¼venlik gerekÃ§esiyle, antisemitizm eleÃ¾tirileriyle izah etme aymazlÃ½Ã°Ã½ndan vazgeÃ§melidir.
Ortada Ã¾iddeti politika haline getiren, zulmÃ¼ kendisi iÃ§in mubah gÃ¶ren, kan akÃ½tmaktan Ã§ekinmeyen bir yÃ¶netim anlayÃ½Ã¾Ã½ bulunuyor. Ãsrail yÃ¶netiminin hukuksuzluklarÃ½nÃ½n Ã¶rtÃ¼lecek, tevil edilecek, gÃ¶rmezden gelinecek hali kalmamÃ½Ã¾tÃ½r. Uluslar arasÃ½ toplumun yeter artÃ½k deme zamanÃ½ gelmiÃ¾tir. BirleÃ¾miÃ¾ Milletler GÃ¼venlik Konseyiâ€™nin 100â€™Ã¼ aÃ¾kÃ½n Ãsrail hakkÃ½nda verilmiÃ¾ kararlarÃ½ tanÃ½mayan Ãsrailâ€™dir. Ã–yleyse BirleÃ¾miÃ¾ Milletler de bu akÃ¾am aldÃ½Ã°Ã½ kÃ½nama kararÃ½yla yetinmemelidir. Ve bunun da arkasÃ½nda durmalÃ½dÃ½r.
Az Ã¶nce BirleÅŸmiÅŸ Milletler Genel Sekreteriâ€™yle konuÅŸtum. O da New Yorkâ€™a geÃ§iyor. Ve akÅŸam saat 8â€™de sayÄ±n Obama arayacaÄŸÄ±nÄ± sÃ¶yledi ve kendileriyle de konuÅŸacaÄŸÄ±z. BunlarÄ± onlarla aynen paylaÅŸacaÄŸÄ±mÄ± burada da bildiriyorum.
Ä°srail yÃ¶netiminin, saldÄ±rgan tutumlarÄ±, ÅŸÃ¼phesiz ki bir yerlerden aldÄ±ÄŸÄ± gÃ¼Ã§ten kaynaklanÄ±yor. Bu noktada TÃ¼rkiye olarak bÃ¶lgemizdeki hassasiyetlerimiz ortadadÄ±r. Ve BirleÅŸmiÅŸ Milletler GÃ¼venlik Konseyiâ€™nin daimi Ã¼yelerinden Bayan Merkelâ€™le dÃ¼n Åžiliâ€™den gÃ¶rÃ¼ÅŸtÃ¼m. DiÄŸerleriyle de, bugÃ¼n Ä°ngiltereâ€™nin yeni baÅŸbakanÄ±yla da, o da aradÄ±, onunla da gÃ¶rÃ¼ÅŸeceÄŸim, daha Ã¶nce de aradÄ±m gÃ¶rÃ¼ÅŸtÃ¼m. BugÃ¼n tekrar gÃ¶rÃ¼ÅŸÃ¼cem. Ve diÄŸerleriyle de gÃ¶rÃ¼ÅŸeceÄŸiz.
OrtadoÄŸuâ€™ da barÄ±ÅŸÄ±n zeminini yok etme gayreti iÃ§ersinde olan Ä°srailâ€™i bu yaptÄ±klarÄ±yla baÅŸ baÅŸa bÄ±rakamayÄ±z. Ä°srail yÃ¶netimine her yaptÄ±ÄŸÄ±n senin yanÄ±na kardÄ±r diyemeyiz. Her ÅŸeyin bir bedelin var. Bu yÃ¶netim bunun bedelini Ã¶demek durumundadÄ±r.
YaÅŸam hakkÄ±na saygÄ± duymayan bir anlayÄ±ÅŸÄ±n hiÃ§bir hakka ve hukuka deÄŸer vermesi, barÄ±ÅŸtan yana bir tutum takÄ±nmasÄ± mÃ¼mkÃ¼n deÄŸildir arkadaÅŸlar.
Ä°nsan yaÅŸamÄ±na deÄŸer vermeyen bir anlayÄ±ÅŸÄ±n, insana ve insan haklarÄ±na saygÄ± duymasÄ± mÃ¼mkÃ¼n deÄŸildir.
Kendi halkÄ±nÄ±n gÃ¼venliÄŸini dÃ¼ÅŸÃ¼nen bir devlet bÃ¼tÃ¼n dÃ¼nyanÄ±n nefretini ve dÃ¼ÅŸmanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±nÄ± kazanarak bunu baÅŸaramaz.
Kendi insanÄ±ndan baÅŸkasÄ±na insan olarak deÄŸer vermeyen bir yÃ¶netimin barÄ±ÅŸ diye bir derdi olamaz.
Ä°srail etrafÄ±ndaki savunma kalkanlarÄ±nÄ± bir bir yok etmekte, ittifak noktalarÄ±nÄ± bir bir kaybetmekte, kendisini yalnÄ±zlaÅŸtÄ±rmaktadÄ±r. Ä°srail yÃ¶netimi OrtadoÄŸuâ€™da kin ve nefreti yaygÄ±nlaÅŸtÄ±rarak bÃ¶lgesel barÄ±ÅŸÄ± dinamitliyor, etrafÄ±na istikrarsÄ±zlÄ±k yayan bir Ã§Ä±ban baÅŸÄ± olarak kendisi iyot gibi aÃ§Ä±ÄŸa Ã§Ä±kÄ±yor.
Uluslar arasÄ± toplum bu gidiÅŸe bir an Ã¶nce mÃ¼dahale etmeli.
Buradan Ä°srail halkÄ±na da seslenmek istiyorum. Biz her zaman antisemitizme karÅŸÄ± olduk. Musevilere karÅŸÄ± yapÄ±lan haksÄ±zlÄ±klara karÅŸÄ± sesimizi yÃ¼kselttik. Ä°srail halkÄ±nÄ±n OrtadoÄŸuâ€™da barÄ±ÅŸ ve gÃ¼venlik iÃ§inde yaÅŸamÄ±nÄ± sÃ¼rdÃ¼rmesi iÃ§in katkÄ±da bulunduk. Åžimdi aynÄ± duyarlÄ± tavrÄ±, aynÄ± insani tavrÄ± sergilemek yaÅŸanan bu zulme dur demek sÄ±rasÄ± Ä°srail halkÄ± olarak sizdedir.
HÃ¼kÃ¼met ortaklarÄ±nÄ±n her tÃ¼rlÃ¼ hak ve hukuku Ã§iÄŸneyerek sergilediÄŸi ÅŸiddet politikalarÄ± Ä°srailâ€™in menfaatlerini tamamen ortadan kaldÄ±rmakta, sizin huzur ve gÃ¼venliÄŸinizi aÃ§Ä±kÃ§a tehlikeye atmaktadÄ±r. HÃ¼kÃ¼metinizin saldÄ±rgan tavÄ±rlarÄ± Ä°srail devletini korsanlÄ±k yapan, haydutluk yapan konuma dÃ¼ÅŸÃ¼rmekte, Ã¼lkenizin uluslar arasÄ± saygÄ±nlÄ±ÄŸÄ±nÄ± zedelemektedir.
Yalanla, hileyle, kan dÃ¶kmekle, saldÄ±rganlÄ±kla, korsanlÄ±kla, devlet terÃ¶rÃ¼ estirmekle, masumlarÄ± katletmekle devlet yÃ¶nettiÄŸini zanneden bu pervasÄ±z yÃ¶neticiler bu pervasÄ±z politikacÄ±lar Ã¶ncelikle Ä°srailâ€™e ve Ä°srail halkÄ±na kÃ¶tÃ¼lÃ¼k yapmaktadÄ±rlar.
Bu duruma Ã¶ncelikle siz dur demelisiniz. Bu arada olaylara yÃ¶nelik haklÄ± ve samimi tepkisini dile getiren TÃ¼rk Musevi Cemaatiâ€™ne de teÅŸekkÃ¼r ediyorum. Musevi vatandaÅŸlarÄ±mÄ±z aziz milletimizin bir parÃ§asÄ± olarak TÃ¼rkiyeâ€™nin haklÄ± pozisyonunu sonuna kadar savundular, savunuyorlar.
Musevi vatandaÅŸlarÄ±mÄ±za yÃ¶nelik kimsenin kem gÃ¶zle bakmasÄ± farklÄ± bir davranÄ±ÅŸ iÃ§ine girmesi sÃ¶z konusu deÄŸildir, olamaz, olmamalÄ±dÄ±r.
DeÄŸerli kardeÅŸlerim, bugÃ¼n yeni bir gÃ¼ndÃ¼r. Bir milattÄ±r. ArtÄ±k hiÃ§ bir ÅŸeyin eskisi gibi olmayacaÄŸÄ± aÅŸikardÄ±r. Alenen cinayet iÅŸleyen, alenen katliam yapan saldÄ±rgan bir devletin piÅŸmanlÄ±k dilemeden ve hesap vermeden insanlÄ±ÄŸa kendini anlatmasÄ±, uluslar arasÄ± toplumun yÃ¼zÃ¼ne bakmasÄ± mÃ¼mkÃ¼n deÄŸildir.
O gemiler birer merhamet gemisiydi. YÃ¼kleri de insanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±n vicdanÄ±ydÄ±.
Kendi karasularÄ±ndan 72 mil aÃ§Ä±kta, tamamen aÃ§Ä±k denizde ve uluslararasÄ± sularda bir gemiye mÃ¼dahalede bulunmak, bir sivil gemiye, bÄ±rakÄ±n askeri gemiye, ona da yapamazsÄ±n. Bir sivil gemiye mÃ¼dahalede bulunmak, yolcularÄ± alÄ±koymak bile baÅŸlÄ± baÅŸÄ±na bir suÃ§tur. Masum insanlara silahla saldÄ±rarak, kan akÄ±tmak, katliamda bulunmak ise aÃ§Ä±kÃ§a devlet terÃ¶rÃ¼dÃ¼r. Ä°nkar ediyor, bize ateÅŸ edildi diyor, artÄ±k sizin bu yalanlarÄ±nÄ±zdan bÄ±ktÄ±k bÄ±ktÄ±k. DÃ¼rÃ¼st olun, dÃ¼rÃ¼st, dÃ¼rÃ¼st olun.
El konulan gemiler, personel ve gÃ¶nÃ¼llÃ¼lerle birlikte derhal serbest bÄ±rakÄ±lmalÄ±dÄ±r. Gemilerdeki gÃ¶nÃ¼llÃ¼leri ve onlarla birlikte olan Avrupa Parlamentosu milletvekillerini, 60 gazeteciyi, annesiyle birlikte gemide bulunan 1 yaÅŸÄ±ndaki Kaan, ki serbest bÄ±rakÄ±ldÄ±, kimse insani yardÄ±m amacÄ±nÄ±n dÄ±ÅŸÄ±nda yola Ã§Ä±kmÄ±ÅŸ gibi gÃ¶steremez. Bu saldÄ±rÄ± Ä°srailâ€™in yÄ±llardÄ±r Filistinâ€™e ve Gazzeâ€™ye reva gÃ¶rdÃ¼ÄŸÃ¼ insanlÄ±k dÄ±ÅŸÄ± zulmÃ¼ bir kez daha aÅŸÄ±kÃ§a ortaya koymuÅŸtur.
Daha Ã¶nce de sÃ¶yledim. Ã–ldÃ¼rmeyi iyi bildiklerini yÃ¼zlerine sÃ¶ylediÄŸimiz Ä°srailli yÃ¶neticiler cinayeti, katliamÄ± ne Ã¶lÃ§Ã¼de iyi bildiklerini bir kez daha dÃ¼nyaya gÃ¶stermiÅŸlerdir. KurÅŸunladÄ±ÄŸÄ±, aÄŸÄ±r yaralÄ± masum insanlarÄ± bile kelepÃ§eleyen bir anlayÄ±ÅŸ. Ya, bunun izahÄ± olur mu? Sedyede, yaralÄ±, ve onu bile kelepÃ§eliyorsun. Bunun insan haklarÄ±yla, bunun evrensel deÄŸerlerle izahÄ± var mÄ±? Ä°nsanlÄ±ktan bunlarÄ±n ne kadar nasibi olduÄŸunu artÄ±k hiÃ§bir ÅŸekilde dÃ¼nyaya anlatmak mÃ¼mkÃ¼n deÄŸildir.
YeryÃ¼zÃ¼nÃ¼n bÃ¼tÃ¼n milletleri bu aÃ§Ä±k zulmÃ¼ lanetliyor, bunu biliyorum. Ama kuru kuruya lanetlemek yetmiyor, artÄ±k netice almak durumundayÄ±z.
YeryÃ¼zÃ¼nÃ¼n adalet isteyen bÃ¼tÃ¼n insanlarÄ± bir gÃ¼n gÃ¼cÃ¼n deÄŸil adaletin yerini bulacaÄŸÄ±nÄ± bilmelidir, bunu istiyorum.
TÃ¼rkiye, uluslar arasÄ± hukukun verdiÄŸi bÃ¼tÃ¼n imkanlarÄ± kullanacaktÄ±r. Bu sÃ¼reÃ§te uluslar arasÄ± toplum ile birlikte hareket edecektir. BÃ¼tÃ¼n insanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±n dikkatini bu noktaya Ã§ekmek istiyorum. Kan dÃ¶kÃ¼cÃ¼ siyaseti ile Ä°srail hiÃ§bir gerekÃ§eyle iÅŸlediÄŸi bu gayri meÅŸru bu kanlÄ± cinayeti meÅŸru gÃ¶steremez izah edemez.
Ä°srail hiÃ§bir mazeretle hiÃ§bir gerekÃ§eyle elindeki kanÄ± temizleyemez. Akdenizâ€™deki bu kanlÄ± saldÄ±rÄ±nÄ±n ortaya Ã§Ä±kardÄ±ÄŸÄ± sorun sadece iki Ã¼lkenin deÄŸil, artÄ±k bÃ¼tÃ¼n dÃ¼nyanÄ±n sorunudur.
DÃ¼nyaâ€™nÄ±n insani deÄŸerleri Ã¶nemseyen hiÃ§bir Ã¼lkesinin, hiÃ§bir uluslar arasÄ± kuruluÅŸun bu boyutta iÅŸlenen bir cinayete seyirci kalmayacaÄŸÄ±na inanÄ±yorum.
Bu aÅŸamadan itibaren Ä°srailâ€™in kanlÄ± saldÄ±rÄ±larÄ±na da her kim gÃ¶z yumarsa her kim o saldÄ±rÄ±larÄ± gÃ¶rmezden gelirse bilmelidir ki bu kanlÄ± saldÄ±rÄ±larda onlar da bizzat suÃ§ ortaÄŸÄ±dÄ±r.
Meselenin bir terÃ¶re karÅŸÄ± savunma olmadÄ±ÄŸÄ± meselenin terÃ¶rle mÃ¼cadele olmadÄ±ÄŸÄ± meselenin bir ÅŸehri bir ÅŸehrin bÃ¼tÃ¼n insanlarÄ±nÄ± toptan yok etmeye dÃ¶nÃ¼k katliam giriÅŸimi olduÄŸu bu son olayla bir kez daha ortaya Ã§Ä±kmÄ±ÅŸtÄ±r.
O insanlarÄ±n Ã¼zerine bomba yaÄŸdÄ±racaksÄ±nÄ±z o insanlarÄ±n Ã¼zerine fosfor bombalarÄ± deneyeceksiniz, hastaneleri bombalayacaksÄ±nÄ±z, camileri bombalayacaksÄ±nÄ±z, okullara saldÄ±racaksÄ±nÄ±z, Ã§ocuk parklarÄ±na bomba atacaksÄ±nÄ±z, hatta BirleÅŸmiÅŸ Milletler ofisini hedef alacaksÄ±nÄ±z bu hukuksuzluk yetmez gibi o insanlarÄ± her tÃ¼rlÃ¼ ihtiyaÃ§larÄ±ndan mahrum bÄ±rakacaksÄ±nÄ±z.
TÃ¼m bunlarÄ±n Ã¼zerine o insanlara ilaÃ§ ulaÅŸtÄ±rmaya, gÄ±da ulaÅŸtÄ±rmaya, inÅŸaat malzemesi ulaÅŸtÄ±rmaya Ã§alÄ±ÅŸan yardÄ±m gÃ¶nÃ¼llÃ¼lerinden de insanlÄ±k dÄ±ÅŸÄ± vahÅŸetinizi esirgemeyeceksiniz.
Herkes bu hukuksuzluÄŸa gÃ¶z yumabilir, gÃ¶rmezden gelebilir, aÃ§Ä±k sÃ¶ylÃ¼yorum, altÄ±nÄ± Ã§izerek sÃ¶ylÃ¼yorum, sinsice destekleyebilir, ama Ä°srail TÃ¼rkiyeâ€™yi baÅŸkalarÄ±na benzetmek gibi bir hatanÄ±n iÃ§ine dÃ¼ÅŸmesin.
BÃ¶yle bir hata iÅŸlemeye kalkmasÄ±n bedeli aÄŸÄ±r olur.
AÃ§Ä±k denizde cinayet iÅŸleyen, masumiyete ve merhamete kurÅŸun atan Ä°srail bu kanlÄ± eylemi ile bÃ¼tÃ¼n dÃ¼nyaya karÅŸÄ± yalnÄ±zlÄ±ÄŸÄ± seÃ§miÅŸtir. Tecrit olmayÄ± seÃ§miÅŸtir.
Bir kez daha sÃ¶ylÃ¼yorum, herkes sussa , herkes gÃ¶zÃ¼nÃ¼ yumsa, herkesin sÄ±rtÄ±nÄ± dÃ¶nse bile, biz, TÃ¼rkiye olarak, Filistinâ€™e, Filistin halkÄ±na, Gazzeâ€™ye sÄ±rtÄ±mÄ±zÄ± dÃ¶nmeyecek , gÃ¶zÃ¼mÃ¼zÃ¼ yummayacak, Gazze iÃ§in haykÄ±rmaktan vaz geÃ§meyeceÄŸiz.
DeÄŸerli kardeÅŸlerim, milletimiz metin olmalÄ±dÄ±r.
Milletimiz, TÃ¼rkiye’ye yaraÅŸÄ±r bir vakar iÃ§inde olmalÄ±dÄ±r. Åžehitlerimizi baÄŸrÄ±mÄ±za basacaÄŸÄ±z. YaralÄ±larÄ±mÄ±zÄ±n yaralarÄ±nÄ± hep birlikte saracaÄŸÄ±z.
TÃ¼rkiye genelinde vatandaÅŸlarÄ±mÄ±zÄ±n bÃ¼yÃ¼k bir hassasiyetle meseleyi yakÄ±ndan takip ettiÄŸini, demokratik tepkisini hukuk iÃ§inde ortaya koyduÄŸunu memnuniyetle mÃ¼ÅŸahede ediyoruz.
DoÄŸrusu, insanÄ±mÄ±za yakÄ±ÅŸan davranÄ±ÅŸ tarzÄ± da budur. BÃ¼tÃ¼n vatandaÅŸlarÄ±mÄ±zÄ±n metanetini koruyacaÄŸÄ±na, vakar ve saÄŸduyu iÃ§inde hareket etmeyi sÃ¼rdÃ¼receÄŸine inanÄ±yorum. Herkes bilsin ve emin olsun ki insanlÄ±ÄŸÄ±n vicdanÄ±ndan sÃ¼zÃ¼len sevgi ve dostluk gemileri bir gÃ¼n bÃ¼tÃ¼n engelleri aÅŸarak menziline ulaÅŸacaktÄ±r.
Bu insanlÄ±k dÄ±ÅŸÄ±, bu insanlÄ±k dÄ±ÅŸÄ± ve hukuk dÄ±ÅŸÄ± operasyonun arkasÄ±nda olduÄŸunu sÃ¶yleyenlere ‘Siz, ne kadar hukuk dÄ±ÅŸÄ±lÄ±ÄŸÄ±n arkasÄ±ndaysanÄ±z, biz o kadar hukukun arkasÄ±ndayÄ±z. Siz ne kadar kanlÄ± operasyonun, saldÄ±rganlÄ±ÄŸÄ±n, terÃ¶rÃ¼n arkasÄ±ndaysanÄ±z, biz o kadar barÄ±ÅŸÄ±n, adaletin arkasÄ±ndayÄ±z. Siz ne kadar sivillerin, Gazze’deki, Filistinâ€™deki mazlumlarÄ±n karÅŸÄ±sÄ±ndaysanÄ±z, biz o kadar sivillerin, masumlarÄ±n, Filistinlilerin, Gazzelilerin yanÄ±ndayÄ±z, arkasÄ±ndayÄ±z.
Bu konumda olduÄŸumuz iÃ§in tarih boyunca iftihar ettik, onur duyduk, bundan sonra da tarihimizin, medeniyetimizin, ve devlet geleneÄŸimizin verdiÄŸi misyonla hareket etmeye devam edeceÄŸiz.
