Mr. Erdogan later walked out in anger.Mr. Erdogan apparently becameincensed after the moderator curtailed his response to remarks by Mr.Peres on the recent Israeli military campaign. The panel was runninglate, and Mr. Peres was to have had the last word, participants said.

Panel discussions at Davos are restricted to one hour, but Mr. Erdoganinsisted on responding to Mr. Peres. Red-faced, and with one handgrasping the arm of the moderator, the columnist David Ignatius of TheWashington Post, Mr. Erdogan turned to the Israeli president.

Mr.Peres, you are older than me,� he said. Our voice comes out in a very high tone. And the high tone of your voice has to do with a guilty conscience.
My voice, however, will not come out in the same tone.� Resisting efforts by Mr. Ignatius to end the session, Mr. Erdogan continued,saying to Mr. Peres, Then it comes to killing, you know well how to kill.� Eventually, the prime minister gathered up his papers and departed, saying, and so Davos is over for me from now on.�

Mr.Peres pointed at the departing Mr. Erdogan and said Turkey would have reacted the same way had rockets been falling on Istanbul, participants said.
Mr. Peres called Mr. Erdogan five minutes later to apologize for any misunderstanding, saying that his words had not been directed at the prime minister personally, the semi official AnatolianNews Agency reported.
In a news conference immediately after the panel discussion, Mr. Erdogan said he was particularly upset with Mr. Ignatius, who he said had failed to direct a balanced and impartialpanel.

By all accounts, the discussion of the Gaza offensive was lively, with Secretary General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations and Amr Moussa,
the Arab League抯secretary general, joining Mr. Peres and Mr. Erdogan. Participants said Mr. Peres was mostly alone in defending Israel抯 role in Gaza, and for that reason he was given the final 25 minutes to speak. Earlier, Mr.Erdogan spoke for 12 minutes about the Palestinians� sufferings.

Although Mr. Erdogan has strongly criticized Israel抯 Gaza offensive, his country and Israel have long enjoyed close diplomatic relations.
With its strong relations with the militant group Hamas,which controls Gaza, Mr. Erdogan抯 Justice and Development Party has played a growing role mediating among Israel, Syria, Lebanon and the Palestinians.

"Mr. Peres, you are a senior citizen and you speak in a loud voice. I feel that your raised voice is due to the guilt you feel.

"But be sure that my voice will not be raised as yours,"

"When it comes to killing, you know very well how to kill,"

"I know very well how you hit and killed children on beaches."

"In your country there are two former prime ministers whose comments on Gaza are important for me."

"You had prime ministers who said: We relish the opportunity to enter the Palestinian lands on tanks."

"You talk to me with numbers. I am willing to name these people and among you there may be people who are longing to know who they are."

"I condemn those who clap for these atrocities, because I think that cheering the murderers of children and humans is in its kind a crime against humanity."

"Pay attention please, we can't disregard this fact."

"I have made notes of Mr. Peres's speech but I have not the time to answer all of them now."

(The moderator tries to stop the Prime Minster.)

"Let me finish"

"I will only touch on two points"

"First, the sixth of the Ten Commandments in the Torah says "You shall not kill" but in Palestine people are killed."

"And second, which is a very interesting issue; Gilad Atzmon [a Jew himself], says Israeli barbarity is far beyond any usual cruelty."

Aside from this, Avi Shlaim, Professor of Oxford who performed his military duty in the Israeli army says in the Guardian that Israel has become "a rogue state."

(The Moderator tries to interrupt the Prime Minister, with hand gestures and physical contact. Erdogan has a sudden flush of anger and turns to the moderator)

"I thank you so much I thank you, too. From now on, Davos is done for me. I will not attend Davos again. You don't let me speak."

"(Pointing to Peres) He spoke for 25 minutes, but you only let me speak for 12 minutes. This is not acceptable."

Erdogan picks up his notes and without looking at Peres and Ban Ki-moon leaves the session.

On his way out, the Arab League(who hasn't got any guts to say a word close to what Erdogan has said ,shame !!) Secretary-General, Amr Mousa, stands up and appreciative of Erdogan's move shakes hands with him.
