Turkish PM warns that even patience has an end

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan slammed protesters Sunday, the tenth day of demonstrations against his government, warning that “even patience has an end.”

He gave a series of speeches to supporters in the nation’s capital, Ankara, as well as in the southern city of Adana.

“We have been patient. We will be patient, but even patience has an end! And look, the people who are hiding behind the demonstrators, and seeking to do politics from it, must first learn what politics is! We are not the ones who fall for the provocations on the streets. But they are,” he said.

Demonstrators have demanded Erdogan’s resignation, accusing his government of creeping authoritarianism. The protests have united disparate groups dissatisfied with Erdogan and angry over what protesters and international critics have described as a heavy-handed response by security forces.

The result has been the biggest challenge to Erdogan and his governing Justice and Development Party during their decade in power.
