Netanyahu to Erdogan: Who slaughters Kurds in his own country should not preach to Israel
PM Netanyahu slammed Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday saying that “he who doesn’t stop lying about Israel, who slaughters the Kurds in his own country, who denies the terrible slaughter of the Armenian people – that person should not preach to Israel.”
Erdogan showed the United Nations General Assembly maps of Israel through the years claiming it shows the “shrinking” imaginary state of Palestine.
“The Palestinian territory under Israeli occupation has become one of the most striking places of injustice,” he said.
In addition, Erdogan framed the sovereignty of Jerusalem as a religious issue, for which a religious battle must be waged. He said that Jerusalem is not just about Muslims at the Temple Mount, but about “touching the dignity of 1.7 billion Muslims in the world”.
