The Turkish leader has previously threatened to cut off ties with Israel if Trump follows through with his promise to move the US embassy. He has helped organize an international meeting of officials from Muslim majority countries to discuss how they should respond. Furthermore, he also warned that moving the embassy would represent an obstacle from a logistical standpoint.
Hours after Erdogan’s outburst, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hit back, calling his counterpart a leader who bombs Kurdish villagers and supports terrorists, during an official visit to Paris. While the two countries had normalised relations in recent years, Sunday’s flare-up came after Turkey was angered by US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel [nearly every deep state US president has done the same]. Furthermore, as we reported on Friday and Saturday, Trump’s move has sparked protests in Muslim and Arab countries for four days.

Erdogan earlier described the status of Jerusalem, whose eastern sector Palestinians see as the capital of their future state, as a “red line” for Muslims:

Netanyahu was quick to counter the assault when he spoke later during a press conference alongside French President Emmanuel Macron:
“I am not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villagers in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran go around international sanctions, and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, kill innocent people,” he said quoted by AFP. “That is not the man who is going to lecture us.”
The tit for tat then continued, and the Israeli premier’s comments were immediately denounced by Erdogan’s spokesman Ibrahim Kalin who said:
“Instead of taking on our country and our leader, the Israeli authorities would do better to end their occupation of the Palestinian territories.”
Erdogan has used his position as the current chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to call a summit of the pan-Islamic group on Wednesday.
“We will show that applying the measure will not be as easy as that,” he added on Sunday, referring to the US recognition of Jerusalem. He said it was “absurd” to deny the Jews’ “ancient connection” to Jerusalem.
During his speech, Erdogan held a picture of what he said was a 14-year-old Palestinian boy from Hebron, in the Occupied West Bank, being dragged away by Israeli soldiers. Turkey and Israel had improved diplomatic ties in recent years but Erdogan has continued to defend the Palestinian cause and has regularly criticised Israeli policy.

The Destruction Of The Temple Is The End To The Old Testament Levitical Priesthood 70 AD, The End To The Earthly Promised Land, And The New Beginning Of The Continuum Of The Promised Land In Heaven Through The New Covenant Jesus.
“Now as soon as the army had no more people to slay or plunder, because there remained none to be the objects of their fury…Caesar gave orders that they should now demolish the entire city and temple” Josephus Wars 7:1:1.
Josephus (l. 7, Bell. c. 18), “Titus bid them utterly destroy the city and the Temple. But there was left standing the three towers, Hippicus, Phaselus, and Mariamne, and that part of the wall of the city which defended it on the west. This was done for the sake of the garrison which he left. And the towers were allowed to stand, in order to be a witness to posterity how strongly fortified was the city which the valour of the Romans had captured. But the remainder of the fortifications they so completely levelled with the ground, that persons who approached would scarcely have believed that the city had ever been inhabited.”
