Kurdish Pastor: Turkey Bigger Threat to Israel than Iran By Tzippe Barrow

2 min read

JERUSALEM, Israel – A Kurdish pastor is issuing a wake-up call to Israel and the West: Turkey, not Iran, is Israel’s biggest threat, and Turkey is aiming to take over Kurdish controlled areas of Iraq.

In a letter to CBN News detailing the Turkish-led siege on the Kurds in northern Syria, Pastor Majeed Mohammed, formerly with the Kurdsman Church in Erbil, says while Iran has not hidden its agenda against Israel, Turkey’s Islamist President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is the bigger enemy.

Erdogan is preparing the way for the rebirth of the Islamic caliphate by rallying the ‘Islamic brotherhood’ to surround the Jewish state and destroy it. That eventuality would be pleasing to the Muslim world, Erdogan says.

Majeed, who is now living abroad, says there are many Christians in Afrin who are crying out for help.

The West, he pleads, must wake up to the Turkish siege against Afrin and other Kurdish cities in Syria and Iraq before he succeeds in extending the Shiite crescent along northern Iraq to the Mediterranean Sea.

Erdogan has mobilized radical Islamic militias to attack the Kurdish population in northern Syria. He is using Russian-manufactured tanks, airstrikes, and cluster bombs against civilians.
