Turkey: Antisemitism Gets Out of Control…….

The Tundra Tabloids received this morning the following from Professor Barry Rubin, concerning the rise of anti-Semitism in Turkey.

This has been sent to me by a very reliable friend who has agreed to distribution as long as his name is not used. It is not unthinkable that the future of the Turkish Jewish community is in doubt.—Barry Rubin
Turkey: Antisemitism Gets Out of Control

The Prime Minister in Turkey has encouraged hatred against Israel in his speeches which has become obvious anti-Semitic propaganda among the general public.

There are people around the clock besieging the Israeli consulate in Istanbul shouting their hatred against Israel and Jewish people. All around Istanbul billboards are full of propaganda posters against Israel like; “Moses, even this is not written in your book” and “Israel Stop this Crime.” On the streets the people are writing such graffiti as: “Kill Jews,” “Kill Israel,” “Israel should no longer exist in the Middle East,” and “Stop Israeli Massacre.”

The week-end before, some people wrote, “We will kill you” on the door of one of the biggest synagogues in Izmir resulted in the closing down of synagogues. Near Istanbul University, a group put a huge poster on the door of a shop owned by a Jew: “Do not buy from here, since this shop is owned by a Jew.”

A group put posters on his wall saying that: “Jews and Armenians are not allowed but dogs are allowed.” Some young people are even threatening others with violence if they are seen as pro-Israel in social networking websites such as Facebook and Hi5. The document attached is the official statement by the minister of education stating that tomorrow [January 14] at 11am in all the high schools and primary schools the students will pay homage to the women and children dead during the war and furthermore, the teachers of art will organize the session of painting and writing on the subject: “Humanity Drama in Palestine” and the winners will receive awards.

The Jewish community can do nothing in response to what has been going on for the last few weeks, except giving vague statements that the Turkish Jewish Community does not want the war to be continued any more.

We have previously faced some strong reaction regarding previous operations in Gaza and the West Bank but this time is really different from former ones. I feel open anti-Semitism and hatred from all these people. Nobody understood, Even some widely read columnists in Turkey are writing things that lead all these groups toward this hatred becoming much more dangerous day by day.

But I know one thing: that the world should know about the widespread and openly anti-Semitic propaganda which far exceeds anything happening in Europe.

The world has gone crazy, driven by its irrational Jew hate that’s given a convenient cover through its anti-Israelism. KGS

  1. The world hasn’t gone crazy. The world is voicing its opinion.

    Did it ever occur to you that people hate Jews and Israel for a reason?

  2. Oh really . . . !

    And what is that reason?

    Do please enlighten us all.

    And while you are about it, make sure your facts are actual facts, not spurious propaganda, and that your argument is reasoned, and not studded with logical fallacies.

    So come on and let us all benefit from what you are able to advice us.

    I await your response with bated breath.

    On second thoughts maybe you ought not to bother – you are probably going to reiterate all the nonsense spouted by socialist politicans and left wing media who constantly whine about the Gaza Arabs and their desparate plight -no fault of their own of course.

    People say. . well, the Arabs of Gaza and the West Bank voted for the Hamas in a democratic election.

    As Bibi said to some BBC dhimmi . . Well – Hitler was also elected by the people of Germany.

  3. What?! Didn’t you even have the decency to come up with a name for your sock puppet, Sikorski?
