PM Netanyahu: “I don’t take lessons on morality from people like Erdoğan”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel would “not take lectures” from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who over the weekend issued a tirade against Israel, accusing it of being a “terrorist state that murders children.”

Speaking in a joint press conference in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron Sunday, Netanyahu was asked about Erdogan’s comments on Israel, in which he also vowed to use “all means to fight” against the American recognition last week of Jerusalem as the country’s capital.

“Mr. Erdogan has attacked Israel. You ask what is my response. I’m not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villagers in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran go around international sanctions and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, kill innocent people” Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu also said that the Arab acceptance that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital will expedite the peace process.

“I offer to Mr. Abbas to sit and negotiate peace, nothing could be simpler,” he said.

“There is an effort to continually in UN forums in UNESCO and elsewhere to deny the millennial connection of the Jewish people to Israel. It’s absurd…Where else is the capital of Israel but in Jerusalem?”

Listing the governmental institutions that are stationed in Jerusalem, including the Knesset and the Supreme Court, Netanyahu said ”It’s always been our capital. It’s not in Be’er Sheva, it’s not in Ashdod. It’s always been out capital. It’s never been the capital of any other people.

“I think the sooner the Palestinians come to grips with this reality, the sooner we’ll move towards peace.”
