PM calls on world to condemn Turkish president for supporting terrorists

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday, implying Turkey's leader supported terrorism.
“The war against terrorism will not succeed if it is based on hypocrisy,” Netanyahu said after a meeting in Jerusalem with an AIPAC delegation. “And up until now I have not heard one world leader condemn the words of Turkish President Erdogan.”
The Turkish leader on Monday blasted Netanyahu's participation in a massive march against terrorism in Paris, saying he did not understand how Netanyahu “dared go there.” Referencing this summer's Operation Protective Edge, he also said Netanyahu should “give an account for the children, women you massacred.”
“I believe that those shameful comments should be rejected by the international community, since the war against terrorism will only succeed if it will be guided by moral clarity, that is to say that the terrorists and those who support them should be condemned, and those who fight them, like Israel and the US, should be supported.”
