The BBC has a report on the Turkish prime minister's return to Turkey from Davos, where he stormed out of a panel discussion about the situation in Gaza. Waiting for Erdogan at the airport in Istanbul was a crowd of thousands, waving Turkish and Palestinian flags. Some were holding signs saying, "Welcome, World Leader."
From the BBC's report:

It showed that Turks are standing on their feet in Europe, in the world."
"Tonight I was really proud. I feel really happy," said Mustafa Sahin, another person in the crowd.
