    I definitely think Israel engaged in war crimes in Gaza. I have zero doubt about that, but I also have no doubt that people of any faith whether they're Muslim, Jewish, or Christian can commit genocide, and Erdogan is wrong that Muslims have never committed genocide. This is not befitting a prime minister of Turkey. It's one thing to deny that Turkey committed the Armenian genocide and another to say people of the Muslim faith are not capable of a genocide. All humans are capable of such things. This thinking exists amongst Jews, the denying that their own could stoop so low. Turkey's prime minister has no credibility if he makes such unbalanced statements.

What it’s like for a survivor to stand trial against a Nazi
