Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this evening (Monday), 26 September 2011, said that the incitement voiced by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan during the UN General Assembly regarding the Holocaust of the Jewish people and the killing of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians is mendacious and scandalous:

"These are outrageous charges against Israel that have nothing to do with the facts. The Holocaust was the worst crime in history perpetrated against our people." The Prime Minister added that, "Israel has lost thousands of its citizens to Palestinian terrorism."
