DAVOS (Agencies) - Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday stormed out of an angry debate at the Davos forum on the Gaza war with Israel's President Shimon Peres. The Turkish Premier got angry when he was cut off by a panel moderator after listening to an impassioned monologue by the Israeli President defending the Jewish state's recent offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. "I do not think I will be coming back to Davos after this because you do not let me speak," Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan shouted before marching off the stage in front of Peres, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and an elite audience of ministers and international officials at the World Economic Forum. "You are speaking aloud. Because these are feelings of guilt. When it comes to killing, you know it very well," Erdogan said before he stormed out the session after sparring with Peres over fighting in Gaza. Erdogan criticised the audience for applauding Peres' defence of Israel's war in Gaza, before the moderator, Washington Post journalist David Ignatius, insisted that the debate had gone overtime. He said Israel had carried out "barbarian" actions in Gaza. Erdogan said that "I remember two former prime ministers in your (Peres) country who said they felt very happy when they were able to enter Palestine on tanks," he said in Turkish. "I find it very sad that people applaud what you said. There have been many people killed. And I think that it is very wrong and it is not humanitarian," shouted Erdogan before he left. The confrontation saw Peres and Ergodan raise their voice at each other - highly unusual at the elite gathering of corporate and world leaders, which is usually marked by learned consensus seeking and polite dialogue. It showed how emotions remain frayed over Israel's offensive against Hamas that ended less than two weeks ago. The packed audience at the Ergodan and Peres session, which included President Obama's close adviser Valerie Jarrett, appeared stunned. Afterward, forum founder Klaus Schwab huddled with Erdogan in a corner of the Congress Centre. Former Norwegian prime minister Kjell Magne Bondevik said, "I was very sad that Ergodan left. This was an expression of how difficult this situation is." Arab League chief Amr Mussa said Ergodan's action was understandable. "Ergodan said what he wanted to say and then he left. That's all. He was right." Of Israel, he said, "They don't listen." Ergodan brushed past reporters outside the hall. His wife appeared upset. "All Peres said was a lie. It was unacceptable," she said, eyes glistening. During his speech, Peres told the audience that Israel had been forced into the offensive against Hamas by thousands of rockets and mortars fired into Israel. "The tragedy of Gaza is not Israel, it is Hamas," said Peres. "They created a dictatorship. A very dangerous one." A finger-pointing Peres told the Turkish PM during his speech that he would have done the same if rockets had been falling on Istanbul. Ban, Erdogan, and Arab League Secretary-General Amr Mussa and Peres all gave long impassioned statements on the conflict which left more than 1,300 Palestinians dead and widespread destruction in Gaza. The UN Secretary-General had called on Israel to end its blockade of Gaza, again condemned the Israeli bombing of a UN base in the territory, and called for Hamas to end its violence for renewed Arab efforts to bring together divided Palestinian groups. Later addressing a Press conference, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan said Israeli President Shimon Peres had addressed him in a manner that was not in the "spirit of Davos" during an angry debate earlier on Thursday. "During his speech (Peres) from time to time turned and addressed directly at me in a manner and style that is not in spirit of free discussion that we see in Davos," he said. He stressed that he had not targeted Peres personally or the people of Israel. "My reaction was to the moderation and I left the meeting which was about to end," he said, explaining that Peres had been given 25 minutes to talk while the others on the panel had less.
