Van, Turkey - Keeping up with his rhetoric Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a presidential campaign stop in the eastern province of Van on Thursday, repeated again his Anti-Israel rant, saying Israel is using a “Hitler-like fascism” against the Palestinians in Gaza, while saying he is more than happy to return an award given to him by an American Jewish group in 2004.

AFP reports that the American Jewish Congress requested Erdogan return the 2004 award following his comments earlier this month comparing Israel to the Third Reich.

In a July 27 open letter to Erdogan, Jack Rosen, President of the American Jewish Congress, called the Turkish PM “arguably the most virulent anti-Israel leader in the world,” while calling on him to return his 2004 Profile in Courage award.

Erdogan said, “If you support this cruelty, this genocide, this Hitler-like fascism and child murderer regime, take your award back. What is the difference between Israeli actions and those of the Nazis and Hitler? How can you explain what the Israeli state has been doing in Gaza, Palestine, if not genocide? This is racism. This is fascism. This is keeping Hitler’s spirit alive.”

It's so comforting to know that John Kerry wants this piece of garbage to help negotiate a ceasefire.
