seriuskah kamu, erdogan??..

“Peres, kamu lebih tua daripada saya. Suara kamu terlalu tinggi.
Kamu bunuh mereka. Saya masih ingat kanak-kanak yang mati di tepi pantai. Saya masih ingat dua bekas Perdana Menteri (Israel) berkata mereka gembira masuk Palestin dengan kereta kebal. Dalam soal membunuh, kamu terlalu bagus.”

who is erdogan??

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, leader of the Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi, or AK) is one of Turkey's most popular politicians.

When his party swept to power in November 2002, he was unable to become prime minister because he was banned from holding political office.

But a speedy change in the law cleared the way for him to run for parliament - and within days of his victory he had been named as prime minister.

He is a charismatic politician from a poor background.

Born in 1954, he is the son of a coastguard in the city of Rize on Turkey's Black Sea coast.

He was 13 when his father decided to move to Istanbul, hoping to give his five children a better upbringing.

As a teenager, he sold lemonade and sesame buns on the streets of Istanbul's rougher districts to earn extra cash.

He attended an Islamic school before obtaining a degree in management from Istanbul's Marmara University - and playing professional football.
