Israel Won’t Be Lectured by a Country That Occupies Cyprus, Netanyahu Tells Erdogan

President Erdoğan tweeted on Tuesday that Mr. Netanyahu is the Prime Minister of an “apartheid state that has occupied a defenseless people’s lands for 60+ yrs in violation of UN resolutions”.

Prime Minister Netanyahu tweeted in response that the Islamist leader “is among Hamas’s biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter. I suggest that he not preach morality to us.”

“A man who sends thousands of Turkish soldiers to maintain the occupation of Northern Cyprus and invades Syria will preach to us as we defend ourselves from infiltration attempt by Hamas,” he added in an official statement, according to The Times of Israel.

“A man whose hands are stained with the blood of countless Kurdish citizens in Turkey and Syria is the last to preach to us about military ethics.”

Turkey invaded Cyprus in 1974 following a Greek-inspired coup, resulting in the decades-long occupation of the north of the island and forcing a third of the country’s Greek population from their homes.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
