“Even if history remains silent, the truth will not remain silent,” the Felicity Party member said. “They think that if they get rid of us, there will be no problem.”
Bitmez continued, “However, if you get rid of us, you will not be able to escape the torment of conscience. Even if you escape the torment of history, you will not be able to escape the wrath of God.”
Newsweek quoted the latter proclamation as follows: “You will not escape the wrath of Allah.”

As soon as these comments were uttered, the lawmaker reportedly fainted and fell to the floor, suffering what some media identified as a heart attack.
According to The Times of Israel, Bitmez’s head hit the floor as other members of Parliament flooded to his side to intervene.
Bitmez reportedly required CPR on site and has since been in serious condition. Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said the lawmaker’s situation is “extremely critical and serious.”
Before Hamas attacked Israel, Turkey was working on warming ties. But, according to The Times of Israel, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is now once again harshly critiquing Israel.
Erdogan has specifically condemned Israel’s response to Hamas, accusing the nation of war crimes.
“Beyond being a war criminal, [Benjamin] Netanyahu, who is the butcher of Gaza right now, will be tried as the butcher of Gaza,” Erdogan recently said. “Those who try to skip over the deaths of all those innocent people by using the excuse of Hamas have nothing left to say to humanity.”
