Israel should not cooperate with UN inquiry on Gaza. (FM, Avigdor Lieberman)

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has lashed out at an inquiry panel set up by the U.N. to investigate alleged war crimes committed by Israel during the latter's weeks-long onslaught on the Gaza Strip.
"We must not cooperate with the [U.N.] committee," Lieberman asserted in a Wednesday press statement. "We must not give legitimacy to a biased committee."

Liberman says Turkish PM is successor to Nazi Goebbels

Former foreign minister compares Erdogan, who accused Israel of plotting Egyptian coup, to notorious Third Reich propagandist.

A day after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of being behind Egypt’s military coup, former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman shot back at Ankara, calling Erdogan the ideological heir to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels. 

“Anyone who heard Erdogan’s words, which were full of hate and incitement, understands without any doubt that we are talking about the successor to Goebbels, and his plotting is in the same vein as the Dreyfus trial and the Elders of Zion,” Liberman said Wednesday, referring to two notorious instances of anti-Semitism.
