Well, I don't much like "NATO ally" Erdogan, but he's calling a spade a spade here.....

Erdogan calls Netanyahu 'terrorist',
Israel 'terrorist state'

Turkish president's comments follow condemnation of
Israeli army's killing of 17 Palestinian protesters in Gaza.


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his comments targeting Turkey's ongoing military operation in the northwestern Syrian region of Afrin.

His remarks on Sunday came in response to Netanyahu's earlier comments rejecting Ankara's "moral lessons" over the Israeli army's killing of Palestinian protesters in Gaza, and labelling Erdogan as someone who "bombs Kurdish villagers".

"He says our soldiers are oppressing people in Afrin. Netanyahu, you are very weak, very poor," Erdogan told the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) congress in the southern Adana province.

"We are dealing with terrorists, but you are not. Because you are a terror state," Erdogan added.

Calling the Israeli prime minister "an occupier" in Palestine, Erdogan said: "You are also a terrorist. History is recording what you have done to all those oppressed Palestinians ... We are not guilty of any act of occupation."

At least 17 Palestinians were killed and more than 1,500 were wounded on Friday when Israeli forces opened fire on "Land Day" protesters near the Gaza Strip's eastern border.

Erdogan has no room to talk. He is now a dictator who jails and murders his political opponents and media members.

He can talk all he wants. Not an angel to be found among the ME leaders. Even so, they all aren't wrong all the time, and many have a record better than a stopped clock.

1,500 wounded speaks for itself.
