Likud’s Sa’ar: Blue and White must apologize for comparing PM to Erdogan

Likud MK Gideon Sa’ar condemns Blue and White for comparing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“They compared him to a tyrant, one of the worst haters of Israel in this generation,” Sa’ar tells the Ynet news site. The senior Likud member says the rival centrist party “crossed a red line” with their video that featured the comparison.

“It’s very important that Blue and White distance themselves from this campaign, shelve it and apologize,” adds Sa’ar, who has in the past challenged Netanyahu for the Likud leadership and is seen as a possible successor.
