REUTERS - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel on Sunday of deliberately killing Palestinian mothers and warned it would "drown in the blood it sheds," pulling foreign policy to center stage as a presidential race enters its final week.
Addressing hundreds of thousands of supporters at his biggest rally so far ahead of the August 10 election, Erdogan again likened Israel's actions to those of Hitler, comments that have already led Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to accuse him of anti-Semitism and drawn rebuke from Washington.
"Just like Hitler, who sought to establish a race free of all faults, Israel is chasing after the same target," Erdogan told the sea of cheering supporters at an Istanbul arena.
"They kill women so that they will not give birth to Palestinians; they kill babies so that they won't grow up; they kill men so they can't defend their country ... They will drown in the blood they shed," he said.

I'd kill the motherforkers too, if they were lobbing rockets at me.

Erdogan is a loose cannon. He's gotten where he is through demagoguery, especially talking aggressive about Israel. Now he's in the demagogue's trap of figuring out how to escalate his talk without getting cornered into action. His blustery bellicosity is going to get a lot of Turks - and maybe Arab Palis and Israelis - killed.SVPete

Has there been any pushback against this guy?
Edited to add:
Obama's playing along with this crap:
Obama State Department Continues To Blast Israel For Killing “Innocent” Children
. . .Still on Monday, Psaki reiterated some of the administration’s sharpest criticism to date over Israeli strikes that reportedly killed Palestinians at a United Nations shelter. In a statement issued Sunday, Psaki called the shelling “disgraceful” and said the U.S. was “appalled.”
“The sign of a strong relationship is being able to speak out and convey concerns when we have them,” Psaki said on CNN. “This is the seventh attack on a school. You’ve been following this closely. And what we need to determine with the international community is exactly the question you posed: Where do we go from here?”
She added that there was “more that Israel can do to hold themselves to their own standards.”
“Every day, the world is watching as innocent civilians are killed, as children are having shrapnel pulled out of their back. I think we can all look to make an evaluation that there’s more that can be done,” she said
