Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan dismissed Iran's desire to build a nuclear weapon as "gossip."
Erdogan went on to say, "So although Iran doesn't have a weapon, those who say Iran shouldn't have them are those countries which do."
Of course, Erdogan neglected to mention Iran's threats to wipe Israel off the map. Perhaps because he's too busy accusing Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman of wanting to use nuclear weapons in Gaza.
But what do you expect of someone who considers Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "a friend"? Ahamdinejad recently praised Erdogan from excluding Israel from a NATO military exercise. Israeli-Turkish relations are at their lowest ebb in decades. Erdogan will travel to Iran next month to visit with Ahmadinejad.
