Erdogan has recalled his Turkish ambassadors from both DC and Tel-Aviv after the US moved it’s embassy to Jerusalem today. He’s also accusing Israel of genocide or something:

Erdogan says that what Israel is doing to Palestinians is a “genocide.”— TRT World Now (@TRTWorldNow) May 14, 2018
If Israel wanted to commit genocide against Palestinians, they wouldn’t just kill 43 of them. I mean c’mon. Israel is defending itself from these jihadi Palestinians who are trying to break through the border:

Regarding the US moving our embassy to Jerusalem, it surprises me in the least that Erdogan wants to further isolate Turkey from the West by recalling his ambassadors. Erdogan motives are clear:
