A powerful partner of Israel's prime minister says the Turkish prime minister's incitement against Israel makes him a successor to Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels.

Turkey's prime minister has accused Israel of being behind the ouster of Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Former Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Wednesday that "whoever heard the hateful and inciting words of (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan understands that this is Goebbels' successor."
