According to Turkish Prime Minister Erdoğan who at a meeting of members of the ruling AKP today stated,
The Western logic that democracy is not the ballot box or democracy is not only the ballot box was implemented then and there are those who want to implement it now. But we say that the way of democracy is through the ballot box, the ballot box is the national will. Now it is this that is being implemented in Egypt. In Egypt what do they say, 'the ballot box is not democracy.' Who is behind this, Israel is.Prime Minister Erdoğan also stated,
Before the 2011 election at a meeting in France, with the Minister of Justice and a French intellectual who is a Jew, they made this statement there 'Even if the Muslim Brotherhood wins the election in Egypt they won't win because democracy is not an election.' Exactly, this is what is being implemented. So the West needs to grasp and learn the definition of democracy. ...
... while the Muslim Brotherhood were protecting churches they [the Egyptian military] burned churches ...Note: I have tried to translate the PM's statements as closely as possible to what he said.
Update: It is being reported that the French intellectual referred to by PM Erdoğan is Bernard Henri-Levy and statements he made during an interview he and Tzipi Livni had in June, 2011.
