11. SOUNDBITE (English) Amr Moussa, Arab League Secretary-General:
"Yes he walked out because he was not given the full time to answer, and we also wanted him to answer because what Mr. Peres said was first unacceptable, second, many of the points were not really accurate and we wanted to say something. So the Prime Minister of Turkey was not given that opportunity. He is after all the Prime Minister of Turkey and he wants to speak."

"He (the moderator) gave the Israeli president a 25-minute-speech and he didn't say anything when the president raised his voice to me, raised his voice directly to me and he didn't say anything when the president took an attitude against discussion rules that we are used to here in Davos."

STORYLINE
Turkey's prime minister stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum red-faced Thursday after reproaching Israel's president over the Gaza offensive by saying "You kill people."
The packed audience, which included President Barack Obama's close adviser Valerie Jarrett, appeared stunned as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli President Shimon Peres raised their voices and traded accusations.
Peres was passionate in his defence of Israel's 23-day offensive against Hamas militants, launched in reaction to eight years of rocket fire aimed at Israeli territory.
Thirteen Israelis also died.
"Only a minute," Ignatius replied.

This is a difference between a leader who was elected by his people, and Al Sissi who came with a military coup. The West prefers the military coups of course

Much love and respect for Turkey and Erdōgan, a great leader. Turkey historically were very close to Israel but they recently split. As to leaders like Erdogan, any suprise Russia want Putin; Turkey want Erdogan and Hungary want Orban? they are better. Respect from Poland (Poloniszkey)
