altJPNN|Ankara| January 15, 2015| Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Thursday said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had committed crimes against humanity comparable to those behind the Paris attacks that left 17 dead. “Netanyahu has committed crimes against humanity the same like those terrorists who carried out the Paris massacre,” he told reporters in televised comments, pointing to the deadly 2010 Israeli assault on a Turkish aid vessel and last year’s onslaught on Hamas-controlled Gaza.Davutoglu further said freedom of the press does not give a licence to insult, describing the publication of cartoons

of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) as a “grave provocation”.“Freedom of the press does not mean freedom to insult,” Davutoglu told reporters in Ankara a day after leading Turkish daily Cumhuriyet and Internet sites published cartoons featuring the Prophet (PBUH) from the special Charlie Hebdo issue. “We cannot allow insults to the prophet (PBUH)… Printing the cartoon is a grave provocation,” he said.
