A senior Turkish politician has accused the West of trying to push Turkey into a war in order to disintegrate his country.

Bfnews:Turkey's Felicity Party Leader Mustafa Kamalak said on Sunday night that the West made the Ottoman Empire enter the First World War and then disintegrated it in order to establish Israel.
Kamalak noted that the West now intends to coerce Turkey into another war to form a greater Israel.

Over the last few days, some senior Turkish officials have spoken of a possible war with Syria over what they call Damascus' crackdown on its people during the ongoing unrest in the Arab country.

On Sunday, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that Ankara may start to take its own “steps” against Syria if the April 10 deadline for peace is expired without any compliance from Damascus.

Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz has also said that Turkey is ready for any development on the Syrian situation including a war.

He made the remarks in a statement issued on Sunday, when the Syrian Foreign Ministry said UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan has not provided “written guarantees” that the armed opposition groups will also abide by a peace plan to halt all violence in the country.
