‘Teach Them a Lesson’: Israel’s Netanyahu, Turkey’s Erdogan Bicker Over Morals

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took time from his busy schedule to snipe at Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday, claiming that Ankara cannot claim the moral high ground over Tel Aviv as long as Turkey continues to attack the Kurds.

The Turkish and Israeli leaders exchanged mutual accusations on Saturday, with Erdogan claiming in a speech that Jews "beat women and children who are prone on the floor," and Netanyahu accusing the Turks of harassing the Kurdish population of Turkey.

"The Jews in Israel kick people laying on the ground. In fact, Jews don't kick men but also women and children when they fall on the ground," Erdogan said during a Saturday speech at an Istanbul meeting of the Turkey Youth Foundation, referring in particular to Palestinian victims of Israeli violence.
