Condemnation for Erdogan over Holocaust comments

Board of Deputies Senior Vice President Sheila Gewolb has condemned Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan for comparing the situation in Gaza to the Holocaust.

Sheila said: “The comparison between the situation in Gaza and the horrors of the Shoah, the systematic murder of six million people, is vile. Turkey’s President Erdogan should apologise for the comments he made yesterday at the United Nations General Assembly.”
