Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's comparison of Israel's offensive in Hamas-controlled Gaza to the Nazis was "anti-Semitic in tone," the Israeli leader said Sunday. "I heard the things the prime minister of Turkey said, words of the utmost gravity," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters.Erdogan said Sunday that he stood by his comments, accusing Israel of using "disproportionate force" and killing Palestinians "mercilessly".A staunch advocate of the Palestinian cause, Erdogan has stepped up his criticism of Israel's operation in the besieged Gaza Strip, accusing the Jewish state of carrying out "state terrorism" and "genocide" against Palestinians.
