When drawing a parallel between Israel’s incessant attacks on the Gaza Strip and Nazi atrocities against the Jewish people, the president of Turkey compared Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, as a way of ironizing the support given by governments of the United States and the European Union to the Tel Aviv regime.

“They (Western political leaders) used to talk bad about Hitler. How different are you from Hitler? They’re going to make us miss Hitler. Is what this Netanyahu is doing less than what Hitler did? It’s not. He’s richer than Hitler and receives support from the West. All kinds of support comes from the United States. And what did they do with all this support? They killed more than 20,000 Gazans”, were Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s statements this Wednesday Monday (27/12).

During the scientific awards ceremony in Ankara, the Turkish leader reiterated his criticism of Western countries that continue to support Israel and said that Turkey was ready to welcome academics and scientists who faced persecution due to their views on the conflict in Gaza. .

On the other hand, Netanyahu did not remain silent and denounced the Turkish president’s comments, stating that he is “the last one who can preach morality”.

Furthermore, he once again defended that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are a “moral army” and that they fight to “eliminate the most abominable and brutal terrorist organization in the world”.

In addition to Netanyahu’s statement, Benny Gantz, minister of the Israeli war cabinet, also made comments regarding the positions expressed by the Turkish president, classifying them as “blatant distortions of reality and a desecration of the memory of the Holocaust”.

“Hamas was the organization that perpetrated a despicable massacre. Removing the threat of Hamas from the citizens of Israel is an existential necessity and an unparalleled moral imperative,” wrote Gantz, also on Platform X.

At this Wednesday’s event (27/12), the president of Turkey reinforced his complaints against Israeli violence and the number of Palestinian deaths, mainly of children and women. Erdogan said that since October 7, hostilities in Gaza had acted as “a litmus test” that made it clear who sought to exploit “human rights and dignity.”

He then criticized those who “act as apostles of democracy”, including the United Nations (UN) Security Council, international media organizations and the European Union: “they have failed in this crisis”.
