    Protesters waved Turkish and Palestinian flags Sunday at the “Great Jerusalem Meeting” in Istanbul called by the Felicity Party. A jingle with the lyric “Hit, hit Zionists” played.

    The Islamist party’s leader, Temel Karamollaoglu, told the crowd that Muslims would not give up on Jerusalem.

    Tensions in the Old City have been running high since Arab gunmen killed two police officers at the Al Aqsa Mosque, prompting Israel to install metal detectors.

    Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel Friday of trying to take over the shrine, considered holy to both Jews and Muslims, under the pretext of fighting terror.

    Israel removed the metal detectors this week.

    1. I still don’t understand why they’re allowed to be part of NATO. Turkey, China, Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Yemen, Jordan, Lebanon, and most of the other Muslim countries are all part of the modern day Axis of Evil. The dovish leftists in the US, Europe, and Israel are all part of the same problem.
