Son of Israeli prime minister Nethanyahu abuses Turkish flag

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's son on Wednesday posted a controversial picture on his Instagram account to abuse Turkey after its President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blamed Israel for the killings in recent Gaza protest.

According to reports by the Sputnik agency on Thursday, Yair Netanyahu took to his Instagram account to post a controversial picture depicting a morphed Turkish national flag. "Turkey" written on a Turkish flag with the crescent and star forming the "c" in of the f-word.

Turkey and Israel expelled each other's ambassadors on Tuesday over the killing by Israeli forces of more than 60 Palestinians in Gaza and amid the U.S. embassy's transfer to Jerusalem.

To recall, Turkey expelled Israel's ambassador Eitan Naeh from the country on Tuesday.

Israel responded in kind, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying Erdogan "well understands terrorism and slaughter" and should not preach to Israel over military ethics.

This will be an interesting watch given that the film carries the tagline, "3 Lost Souls.2 Dead Bodies.A Journey of a Lifetime". He moved to London for his treatment and since then there has been no official statement from the actor or his family.

In response, a family spokesman said: "Yair Netanyahu is a private individual and his Instagram account is private". In September, he was forced to delete a meme from his Facebook profile which was described as anti-Semitic and a nod to white supremacy.

"He has the blood of Palestinians on his hands and can't cover up crimes by attacking Turkey".

The 26-year-old's move was not surprising since he previously insulted fellow Israelis, including former Prime Minister Ehud Barak and opposition leaders, with the same images and rhetoric used by neo-Nazis and far-right movements.

He accused Israel of being a "terrorist state" that commits "genocide" - and called Netanyahu the prime minister of an "apartheid state". Former Klu Klux Klan leader David Duke tweeted his approval, writing, "Welcome to the club, Yair - absolutely incredible, wow, just wow". And in January, recordings were released of Yair Netanyahu speaking in a vulgar manner about women and attending strip clubs.
