Kurz vows Vienna to support Israel security needs in ‘tough neighborhood’

With visiting Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz the target of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s wrath in recent days, Turkey – in addition to Gaza, Syria, Iran and the Palestinian Authority – was among the topics he discussed with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday.

Kurz, in an interview with The Jerusalem Post, said that he spoke with Netanyahu – himself often a subject of Erdogan’s anger and diatribes – about Turkey, though he would not go into details about what was discussed.

The Austrian leader has been subject to Erdogan’s insults and threats since Friday because of his country’s moves to shut down seven mosques and expel 40 imams funded by Turkey.

Erdogan has warned that Austria’s actions could lead to a war between the “crescent and the cross,” that he would retaliate against any such moves, that the 31-year-old Austrian leader is young and “inexperienced,” and that “behaviors like these can cost you heavily.”

An estimated 250,000 Turks live in Austria.
