Turkish President criticize Barack Obama 'Silence' in Muslim Killings

 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized US President Barack Obama's silence over the murders of three Muslim students in North Carolina, they should take a position following such acts. "Three Muslims have been murdered in North Carolina and President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry have not made any statements about it," Erdogan said during a visit to Mexico. "As politicians, we are responsible for everything that happens in our countries and we have to show our positions," he said alongside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto in Mexico City's National Palace. Triple murder in the North Carolina university town of Chapel Hill has sparked accusations in the Muslim world of double standards by US media in their coverage of the attack. Newly Wed Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, his wife Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21, and her 19-year-old sister Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha were shot dead by a neighbor whose Facebook page was filled with anti-religious posts. Police said they were investigating the crime as a parking dispute with the couple's neighbor, Murderer Craig Stephen Hicks, but families of the slain students repeated their belief it was a religiously motivated attack because the victims were Muslims. Thousands of people gathered for the victims' funeral..
