Turkey escalates verbal attacks against Greek PM with direct insults

Turkey escalated verbal attacks against the Greek Prime Minister on Tuesday and Erdogan’s government partner,  nationalist Devlet Bahceli went so far to directly insult Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Speaking to his parliamentary group, the leader of the Nationalist Movement,  Bahceli, used very harsh word and called the Greek PM  “a pawn of the West,” and a “coward.”

“The fact that this prime minister, who timidly took refuge under the wings of the United States and speaks over here and there, aspires to become the pawn of the West, is a historic rupture, a dishonorable weakness. Mitsotakis, who brought the map of the [Turkish expansion plan] Blue Homeland to the agenda during his meeting with the US president and complained about Turkey, is as insidious and cowardly as his grandparents. The Turkish nation will resist the policy of harassment and provocations of Greece until the end and will stand against the attackers in the Mediterranean and the Aegean under any circumstances.”

In his delirious speech, Bahceli reportedly said also t”The visit of the Prime Minister of Greece to the United States, the dubious and unprincipled scenes during this visit, once again revealed the growing prejudice against Turkey and the Turkish Cypriots. USA and Greece met on the same line […]  they found common ground against Turkey.”

He attacked Mitsotakis also for his reference to the Cyprus issue during his speech at the US Congress and claimed that the Greek PM “ignored the facts and tried to hide the barbarity. First of all, let everyone know that Cyprus is Turkish and will remain Turkish. No matter how much Prime Minister Mitsotakis opposes, there is no other way out in Cyprus than the two-state solution, which will be based on sovereignty and equality. The will of Turkey and the Turkish Cypriots is in this direction. Either they will accept it willingly or this goal will become a reality.”

Erdogan’s government partner said “when will Mitsotakis remember the massacres, the bloody attacks, the atrocities and the tortures against the Turkish Cypriots? When will he confess and express his honest attitude? The fate of Cyprus is not Greek rule, but Turkish rule.”

Bahceli, who is also the leader of the fascist Grey Wolves organization, lashed out at the Greek PM less than 24 hours after Erdogan announced he would never speak with Mitsotakis again.

Short after Erdogan’s announcement Turkish fighter jets violated the Greek airspace and the FIR Athens on Monday night, and entered 8.5 nautical miles north of the island of Lesvos. They were intercepted by Greek fighter jests.

  1. Gasps of desperation by the arrogant and dishonest pirates.

    Lets hope the sanctions work, this is not only boringly repetitious but dangerous.

  2. What Turkey claims is so breathtakingly bizarre, they can not be taken seriously.

    They are headed to isolation and destruction. Their best chance is to get rid of Erdogan and find a more internationally cooperative partner or they will indeed perish, contrary to Bahceli’s claims and threats to leave NATO when their old foe Russians would eat them alive.

  3. All governments use narrative to achieve their aims. They have an objective. They need the agreement of some group to achieve that narrative, e.g. the cabinet, the parliament, the people. They construct a narrative that they believe will persuade people to agree with them. They don’t care if the narrative has any basis in reality, only whether it is successful in convincing people. The problem with people like Putin and Erdogan is that they start to believe their own narrative even though they created it and know it is false. Psychosis?
