(JNS.org) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a strong supporter of the Palestinian terror group Hamas, slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for attending Sunday’s mass anti-terrorism rally in Paris and accused Netanyahu of “state terrorism.”

“I also hardly understand how [Netanyahu] dared to go there. For once, you give an account for the children, women you massacred,” Erdogan said, referring to last summer’s Gaza war, during a joint press conference with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ankara, AFP reported. 

“How can you see this individual who carries out state terrorism by massacring 2,500 people in Gaza waving his hand?” Erdogan added.

Abbas and Netanyahu, along with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, took part in Sunday’s rally in Paris to commemorate the 17 people who were killed in three Islamist terror attacks in the French capital last week.
