Turkish PM a successor to Nazi propagandist Goebbels, Israel’s Lieberman says
Avigdor Lieberman, the founder and the leader of the right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party, has described Erdoğan’s words as “full of hate and incitement.” Hürriyet photoAvigdor Lieberman, an Israeli deputy and former foreign minister, has waded into the reaction to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s accusations over Israeli involvement in the July 3 coup in Egypt, calling Erdoğan a successor to Nazi Germany propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
Lieberman, the founder and the leader of the right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party, has described Erdoğan’s words as “full of hate and incitement.”
“We are talking about the successor to Goebbels,” he was quoted saying by the daily Jerusalem Post.
Erdoğan yesterday accused Israel of complicity in the Egypt coup that ousted President Mohamed Morsi, claiming he had a document proving this involvement.
According to claims, he referred to a video of a press conference held by Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and French philosopher and author Bernard-Henri Lévy in which the latter displayed his opposition to a possible government led by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
Lieberman has also repeated his opposition to any type of apology for the Mavi Marmara incident in 2010.
Goebbels worked as the minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945.
