Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that Israel was behind the July ouster of Egypt’s Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, citing comments made in 2011 by an Israeli justice minister at a forum France.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has claimed that Israel was behind the July 3 military coup in Egypt, adding that Ankara has evidence as to the country’s involvement in former president Mohammed Morsi’s overthrow.

“Now the West starts to say democracy is not the ballot box or not only the box but we know that the ballot box is the people’s will,” Erdoğan said Aug. 20 at an expanded meeting of the provincial chairs of his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).

The prime minister criticized Western countries' stance vis-à-vis Egypt’s coup, saying, "The West should [understand] the description of democracy, they need to learn it.”
