Erdoğan said that in his view, "There is no difference between Hitler's obsession with Aryan race and Israel's notion that this ancient land belongs to Jews alone." "The spirit of Hitler, who led world into a great catastrophe, has returned to some of leaders of Israel," said Erdoğan, who regularly criticises Israel's policy towards Palestinians and repeatedly chooses to compare fascism. It was not until May that he had compared Israel's violent action in Gaza Strip with Holocaust.Netanyahu calls turkey "dark dictatorship"
The nation state law was also criticized by many or States as discriminatory towards Arab minority. About 17.5 percent of Israeli citizens are Arabs. They complain regularly about legal and social disadvantages.
Israel's head of government Benjamin Netanyahu, however, had referred to law last week as a "crucial moment in history of Israeli state." The Turkish president's criticism countered Netanyahu with a counterattack: Turkey is developing into a "dark dictatorship," said Netanyahu.
