A video comparing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has set off a political storm in Israel.
The clip, released Feb. 25 by the Blue and White Party, shows Erdogan delivering a speech to his parliament, but the soundtrack is of Netanyahu, accompanied by cheering voices. After the speech, a narrator states that if Netanyahu gets one more seat, he’ll stay put. Only Blue and White can prevent an Erdogan-like government, he says. Blue and White’s Benny Gantz and other party leaders repeated this same message in interviews this morning.
