Netanyahu Finally Calls Out Erdogan For Anti-Semitic Statements

indirAfter years of publicly restraining himself regarding Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told US Secretary of State John Kerry that the words of the leader of Washington’s close NATO ally were anti-Semitic.

According to diplomatic officials, Netanyahu spoke to Kerry overnight on Sunday about the Gaza operation, and said that Erdogan’s anti-Semitic comments profaned the memory of the Holocaust.

Erdogan, in the midst of a presidential campaign, said on Saturday that “Those who condemn Hitler day and night have surpassed Hitler in barbarism.”

According to the Turkish website Hurriyet Daily News, Erdogan, speaking at a campaign rally in the Black Sea province of Ordu, said the “terrorist state Israel has attacked Gaza once again, hitting innocent children who were playing on a beach.”

According to the paper, the crowd frequently interrupted Erdogan’s speech by chanting “Down with Israel.”

“They always curse at Hitler, but they now even exceed him in barbarism. Some Americans ask why Mr. Prime Minister [Erdogan] makes such comparisons with Hitler. What’s that to you? You’re America, what’s Hitler got to do with you,” he said.

This was just the latest in a series of vitriolic comments by Erdogan against Israel since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge. He also accused Israel of attempting “systematic genocide” against the Palestinians in Gaza, and likened Bayit Yehudi MK Ayelet Shaked to Hitler.
