Our neighborhood bullyRecep Tayyip Erdogan.
Europe’s silence in the face of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s vitriolic attacks against Israel is one of the reasons for the surge of anti-Semitism in Europe, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Wednesday.
In some of the toughest public comments in memory against Erdogan and Turkey, Liberman told a gathering of Israel’s ambassadors to Euro-Asia that Europe’s ignoring the hate and incitement Erdogan cultivates toward Israel has ramifications.
“The silence of the lambs of cultured Europe, politically correct Europe, toward a neighborhood and anti-Semitic bully like Erdogan and his friends brings us back to the reality of the 1930s,” he said.Lieberman also went after the 'Palestinian Authority.' Read the whole thing.
But I'm not sure his characterization of Europe as 'silence of the lambs' is correct. Much of Europe is nearly as anti-Semitic as Erdogan, although some of them are ashamed to admit it.
The world's oldest hatred continues to thrive across the continent.. and beyond.
