BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 A.M.) – The System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian slammed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a recent interview following the latter’s comments about New Zealand.

According to News Hub, Tankian said that Erdogan’s comments about taking a stand against a “corrupt oligarchic plutocracy” in New Zealand “made him sick”.

“Your grandparents came, some of them returned in coffins. If you come as well like your grandfathers, be sure that you will be gone like your grandfathers,” Erdogan told supporters just days after the New Zealand mosque massacre.

“They are testing us from 16,500km away, from New Zealand, with the messages they are giving from there. This is not an individual attack, it is organised.”

Tankian expressed his outrage that the Turkish leader would blame a country like New Zealand which is currently “commemorating each and every precious life lost in this horrific terror attack,” as well as amending gun laws to avoid further bloodshed.

“It’s time to tell Erdogan to shove it,” Tankian told the publication.

“NZ is a courageous and smart country and should itself suspend Gallipoli visits until Erdogan’s Turkey shifts from being a corrupt oligarchic plutocracy to a proper modern democratic state,” he added.

Erdogan’s slander aims to cover Turk genocides by projecting on others. Serj Tankian is of Armenian descend.

@am d, Sultan Erdogan is the self declared head of the Ummah. He is responsible of all Muslim Jihadi crimes.

Yup, it makes sense. And his “road-book’ is even worst than ‘Mein Kampf’…

@Daeshbags-Sux, yap. Other inspirations from US. Some Rassengesetze provisions from South states.

@am d, if it was Mossad, it wasn’t a false flag : a false flag is hitting yourself and accuse those you want to go after! Since Coran says “kill the Jews, kill all non Muslims”, any attack by non-mussies…/…

If you adhere to an ideology saying all those who aren’t in shall be killed, don’t be too surprised if you become a target for any one not being part of your ideology…/…

… as it will be seen as legitimate self-defense. Even if Muslims ignore what’s in their books and imams do a low profile when not in Muslim-majority countries…
