New Zealand scolds Turkey’s Erdogan over airing massacre footage

Turkish VP calls for joint stance against terror acts

"We speak once again from Canakkale after 104 years, and say we have received your message", Recep Tayyip Erdogan said during ceremonies marking the 104th anniversary of the Battle of Canakkale, commemorating the martyrs in the historic victory.

The Greek foreign ministry warned the Turkish leader to tone down his campaign rhetoric after he accused the West of plotting against his country.

All around the world many leaders opted a more compassionate approach and stood in solidarity with the victims, some leaders used their Islamophobia and rise in Islamic migration to justify the attack, However, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan chose a very different approach in which he used the video the shooter made (while murdering the victims) as an election booster.

New Zealand authorities said on Sunday that 34 people remain in hospital, being treated for injuries that Doctor Greg Robertson described ranging from severe, complex gunshot wounds to "relatively superficial soft tissue injuries".

Ignoring Israeli police's attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and Palestinians in the occupied territories, Netanyahu added: "Erdogan should learn from us how to respect all religions and uphold human rights".

The clips Erdogan showed to thousands of people were blurry but still had the sound of gunfire.

The video prompted widespread condemnation.

Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters protested on Monday that such politicization of the massacre "imperils the future and safety of the New Zealand people and our people overseas, and it's totally unfair". Facebook said it removed 1.5 million versions of the video in the first 24 hours after the attack.
