Want to know when I mean when I criticize Erdogan for grandstanding when he withdrew the Turkish ambassador from Israel & expelled Israel’s ambassador after the Trump embassy massacre? Palestinians launched BDS in 2015 & it is just now that Erdogan raises the issue of boycott after the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) called for a ban only of products from the illegal Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, not all Israeli goods. Consider the power & impact of BDS if Turkey or any of the other 57 OIC countries honored the boycott. When it comes to apartheid & genocide, you can’t play both sides of the street.
