Turkey’s prime minister said Israeli policies are fanning anti-Semitism. Turkey agrees with Israel “on most issues, but we think differently on one or two matters,” Recip Tayyip Erdogan told Turkish lawmakers. “We don’t have a problem with the Israeli people, but unfortunately, the Israeli administration’s current actions are increasing anti-Semitism in the world.” Israeli officials rejected the criticism. Turkey’s allegation is “inappropriate and only reinforces those wishing to harm the Jewish people,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
