Unconcern at suffering shows West's true face

Turkey's president says Islamophobia, neo-Nazism, racism displacing democracy, human rights and freedoms in the West
Turkey’s president on Wednesday criticized Western countries’ indifference to humanitarian crises among Muslims, adding that racist and discriminatory ideologies are increasingly displacing democratic values in the West.

"The West’s unresponsiveness to the violence that has been going on in Syria for seven years, to the inhumane treatment refugees are subjected to at border gates, and to the genocide of the Rohingya have revealed the true face of the West,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan told an Organization of Islamic Cooperation economic meeting in Istanbul.

“Islamophobia, neo-Nazism, and racism began to replace values such as democracy, human rights and freedoms more and more” in the West, he added.

Addressing the OIC’s Standing Committee for Economic and Commercial Cooperation (COMCEC), he said: "As the Islamic world, it is evident that we have been going through a period of hardship in recent years, literally an era of instigation."
