Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday Turkey would push for Israel to be tried at an international criminal court if it kept up its assault on Gaza and he accused the Jewish state of "spitting blood".Turkey was once considered by Washington as a credible broker in the Middle East peace process, particularly given its channels of communication with Islamist group Hamas, but that changed as Erdogan adopted an increasingly anti-Israel stance.There is widespread anger at the Palestinian civilian casualties caused by Israel's offensive against Gaza, which is aimed at stopping rockets being fired into Israel by militants loyal to Hamas.Israel, which says it has a right to defend itself, has lost at least 32 soldiers in clashes inside Gaza and with Hamas raiders who have slipped under the fortified frontier in tunnels.
