Avigdor Lieberman's made an astute comparison
for the Turkish tyrant:
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is following in the path of Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, MK Avigdor Lieberman said on Wednesday. Lieberman spoke a day after the Turkish premier accused Israel of being behind the ouster of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.
"He [Erdogan] has continued Goebbels' ways," Lieberman, a former foreign minister and the leader of Yisrael Beytenu, told Army Radio.
"Those who apologized before Turkey [over the deadly Turkish-led Gaza-bound flotilla in 2010] should do some soul-searching; so should those who attacked me and Yisrael Beytenu for our criticism over Israel's apology."
On Tuesday, Erdogan said he had "evidence" of Israel's involvement in the Egyptian coup last month, citing a statement by a French Jewish intellectual during a meeting with an Israeli official.
The Egyptian cabinet rejected Erdogan's statement as baseless and "bewildering," saying its patience was running low with Turkey, one of the biggest critics of the July 3 military coup.
Israel said Erdogan's claim was not worthy of comment.
It's good that Egypt's current rulers aren't going along with this either. Turkey still remains a serious affront to civilization so long as Erdogan is reigning supreme, and he must be brought down one way or another.
