Turkey’s leaders have become the “laughingstock of the international community with their self-righteous discourse,” an Israeli official said on Monday in response to yet another anti- Israel tirade by Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

Turkey’s anti-Israel bashing continued unabated for a third-straight day on Monday, with Davutoglu thrashing Israel for its settlements policy and declaring that Israel was now a “pariah state.”

The Turkish foreign minister, addressing a ministerial meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Cairo, said that “Israel has now been rendered by the international community a ‘pariah’ status for its expanding illegal settlements.”

Referring to the recent United Nations Human Rights Council report calling on Israel to evacuate all settlements, Davutoglu said, “Time and again Israel has proven that it fails to read the change happening not only around it, but also in the way its actions are perceived by the international community.”
