Turkey is doing it again

At the moment the AK party government is creating an anti-Israelian mood in Turkey...and here.
All because of the in Gaza women and children were killed who happened to be Muslims!
And killing 500 Muslims is worse than killing 400.000 Christians in Sudan.
Therefor Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir is travelling to Turkey next week for the Organisation of the Islamic Conference summit. This is despite a warrant for his arrest issued by the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
And remember, Turkey is now member of the UN Security Council.

The Turkish government has given assurances that he will not be detained. Turkey has not signed the Statute of Rome which established the ICC although it is under pressure to do so from the European Union, which it hopes to join.

President al-Bashir is accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in 2003 in Sudan's Darfur region. Human rights groups in Turkey are furious about his visit and are calling for his immediate arrest when he arrives.

Mr al-Bashir has recently visited a number of African countries which have refused to arrest him, rejecting the ICC warrant.
Yes, for the Islamist government of Turkey religion is more important than human rights.
