Housing Minister Mehmet Kaplan (Green Party) is in trouble – again. Swedish Dagbladet reveals that he compared Israel’s 2009 actions against the Palestinians with Nazi treatment of Jews during World War II.
“Israelis treat Palestinians today in the very same way as Jews were treated by the Germans during the 20th century,” said Minister of Housing in a TV spot from the meeting sent in open channel of local TV station Star TV Somaliland.
NOTE: The Finnish Green’s party magazine did the same comparison as well
