Brawl erupts in Turkey’s parliament over Syria involvement

[Rudaw] A fight broke out in the Ottoman Turkish parliament between politicians from opposing parties Wednesday during a tense discussion about The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...

Video images showed dozens of politicians from President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
’s party and from the main opposition party pushing each other. In the video, some are seen throwing punches while others try to pull the brawling politicians apart.

Some politicians fell to the ground during the fray, Turkey’s Haberturk television reported.

Fighting is a frequent occurrence in Turkey’s parliament. The clash on Wednesday started when Engin Ozkoc of the opposition Republican People’s Party took the rostrum. During a news conference shortly before, Ozkoc called Erdogan "dishonorable, ignoble, low and treacherous."

He also accused the president of sending the children of Turkey’s people to fight while Erdogan’s own offspring allegedly avoided long-term military service.

During a speech to members of his party, Erdogan himself had accused the opposition earlier of being "dishonorable, ignoble, low and treacherous" for questioning Turkey’s military involvement in Syria’s northwest Idlib province.

Tensions are running high following the deaths of more than 50 Ottoman Turkish soldiers in Idlib in the past month, including 33 who were killed in an attack on Thursday.

Turkey sent thousands of troops to Syria to help prevent a Russia-backed Syrian government offensive to retake Idlib province and to support Syrian opposition fighters holed up there.
