Turkey's Erdogan Threatens to 'Send Netanyahu to Allah,' Israel Summons Envoy

Foreign Minister Israel Katz summoned the Turkish ambassador after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to “send [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu to Allah” in a post on X on Friday, March 22.

“I instructed Israel’s Foreign Ministry officials to summon the Turkish deputy ambassador to Israel for a serious reprimand, following Erdogan’s attack on Prime Minister Netanyahu and his threats to send Netanyahu to Allah, and to convey a clear message to Erdogan,” Katz wrote.

“You who support the burning of babies, murderers, rapists, and the mutilation of corpses by Hamas criminals, are the last one who can speak about God.” he continued.

Erdogan made these statements shortly after an election rally last Thursday, the Jewish National Syndicate reported. Additionally, earlier this month, Erdogan compared Netanyahu in a speech to some of history’s worst dictators, including Mussolini, Hitler, and Stalin, multiple media sources reported.

The Turkish President was also quoted by multiple outlets as saying “Hamas is not a terrorist organization, but rather a resistance movement, and we stand firmly behind them and [are] in constant contact with its leaders.”

To this Netanyahu responded by saying that “Israel observes the laws of war and will not be subject to moral preaching from Erdogan, who supports murderers and rapists of the Hamas terrorist organization, denies the Armenian genocide, and massacres Kurds in his own country.” (JPost / VFI News)

“God, we pray for protection over all of Your chosen people and we ask that malicious plans against us will not succeed. We pray for a strong leadership, able to stand firm and thwart any potential attacks. We also pray for all oppressed people to be liberated and stop experiencing violence and pain, in Yeshua’s name.”
