1. I wonder how many tears he shed about the Kurds
2. Tears wont help
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.21.12)
Stop all rockets and bombs being fired into Israel from gaza.. is that so hard to do? They cry like girlies and still promote war between muslims and Jews. How about a true cease fire and peace and joy for a change, or, is that a possibility with this bloody people? Everyplace they are located on earth is death and misery.
3. "Selective staged crocodile tears" ?
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.21.12)
I guess pouring out tears is cheaper and less deadly than the turks actually fighting Israel.
4. FM Davutoglu is a shame for Turkey
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (11.21.12)
His name is DAVIDOGLU that is son of David! He is worst FM of Turkey ever take charge of this position. Duty of A FM is not weeping but Diplomacy. He just appears powerless doll rather than a man with diplomatic mission. Shame!

clear massage Washington sent to Turks?Israel has his head in the sand.this kind of killing no one is saying Yay Israel, great job, on the faces of dead children, I am sorry Israel lost this war long ago, and Washington will take allots of arm twisting to trade Turkey for Israel,I would not try it one bit,everyone in US are fully aware of this crimes Israel commits there, it is a shame really such a wonderful people of Israel ruled by blood thirsty leaders,even l do not like Erdogan, l can not argue with him on this one,killing children is never okay,periot,
6. Tears for Camera ?
Lenya ,   Australia   (11.21.12)
Many western dignitaries and I might say most westerners around the world when they attend their wounded or dead family, friend and fellow countrymen and women hold back tears and remain dignified in front of cameras and only show their emotions out of camera range...but unfortunately I have to say that most Muslim dignitaries I have seen on film and video are pretty undignified and bawl without restraint in front of the cameras. Muslim funerals are even more dramatic with the mourners screaming jumping up and down, going into fits on the ground to the point of embarrassment. I cant help thinking Is it for the cameras and onlookers ?
7. What a hypocrite
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (11.21.12)
Recently many Turkish soldiers are loosing their precious lives under PKK terror but Mr. Davutoglu never shed a tear for them. While e was visiting Gazza a group of Hamas terrorists had killed an Arab for allegedly cooperating with Israel end pulled in the streets with motorcycles, a form of barbarism that even PKK does not do. Davutogly not only did not shed a tear for him did not even mention. Tayfun efendi: davitoglu has no connection with Jewish nation at all. He is an ultra Islamist AKP member.
8. And the Oscar goes too.....

9. Come and cry in Sderot and Tel Aviv

10. Despicable
Guy ,   Rishon Letzion   (11.21.12)
Apparently the Turkish foreign minister has no place in his heart for the tens of thousands of Kurds his government has killed or displaced, not to mention the hundreds of thousands to nearly two million Greeks, Assyrians, and Armenians that the Ottomans slaughtered. Oh, and that little matter of occupying Northern Cyprus and ethnically cleansing all of its Greek inhabitants? Let's just forget about it. I usually complain about just how terrible the current government in Israel is; the current Turkish one isn't any better. Turkey has essentially become a persona non grata re: acting as a fair mediator in the Israel-Palestinian conflict. How's that for being a 'regional superpower'?
11. Time to put all cease fire talks on hold and ratchet up for
Ahmad Cohen ,   Ibn Mousa HaLevy   (11.21.12)
next phase of the war. The next phase should be punitive and include regulating power, water, and gas supplies to Gaza. Each rocket and attack should result in service interruptions whose duration is determined by the severity of the attack. Next we should attack infrastructure in Gaza and no bridge, road, or path should be passable. Thank G-d we are rid of Olmert and Livni. We have determined leaders who not commit acts of Treason like Olmert and Livni.
12. Oh puh-leese!!
Bet he practiced that in front of a mirror during his flight across.
13. Hysteric agitating provocateur. Find anotherway of discharge
Obsessive ,   Turkey   (11.21.12)
14. Davutoglu with Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (11.21.12)
Prime Minister Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Lieberman, Defense minister Barak, PLEASE look at the picture and then look us, the people of Israel, that Turkey is a friend! Turkey is the enemy and is no different to Iran in its hatred of Israel. The Turks are now showing their true colors!
15. No tears for 37,000 Syrians
arcane ,   Philadelphia, PA   (11.21.12)
Pure hypocrite
16. Same amount
Mani   (11.21.12)
.. The same amount of tears he shed for Armenians... Then he goes out to podiums and speaks about 'Humanity'..
17. Where were his tears for the children at Uludere?
Evan ,   New York   (11.21.12)
The shameless hypocrisy of the Turks is really a sight to behold.
18. #5
mark ,   ca   (11.21.12)
My friendly advice:spend more time on grammar. :-))
19. Vivace Hypocrisy
hypocrite   (11.21.12)
I don't remember any Turkish leader crying over the massive massacre of innocent Armenian at the Armenian genocide, or Kurdish people that the Turkish slaughtered
20. Turkish therapy
Ari ,   USA   (11.21.12)
The new Turkish psychological therapy: Massacre Armenians Shell Syrians Bomb and oppress Kurds Go cry to Gaza to release the pain. It is very healthy
