Anti-Semitism in Turkey is Out of Control

This was forwarded to me for publication on condition the nothing about the original author’s identity be revealed. The sender stated his opinion: “It is not unthinkable that the future of the Turkish Jewish community is in doubt.”

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 weekend before, some people wrote, “We will kill you” on the door of one of the biggest synagogues in Izmir, resulting 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 [NB: document was not included — BB] 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 give vague statements that the Turkish Jewish Community does not want the war to be continued anymore.

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.

  1. Europe has little choice now but to embrace Antisemitism due to their burgeoning Muslim populations. Since a lack of spine is required to be a politician you can count on Europe’s political class to put their finger to the wind and feel the massive breeze from their Muslim populations and either not openly support Israel or openly condemn Israel. In either case Israel has few if any friends in Europe.
    I don’t know much about the soon to be President of the US Barack HUSSEIN Obama but I’d wager he’s not much more than a fair weather friend of Israel and if the Muslim nations of the Middle East were to attack Israel en masse Obama wouldn’t do anything about it. Israel’s existence for at least the next four years is going to be very tenuous. I would go so far as to say that Obama is secretly hostile to Israel’s existence and his administration cannot be counted on.
    Any European who cares at all about the survival of Western, Christian Europe had better pull his head out of the sand now and start demanding a halt to Muslim immigration, repatriation of Muslim immigrants, and a reassertion of pro-European nationalism.
    Europe is quickly approaching a tipping point.

  2. Tom Mannis —

    I would, too! But it wasn’t included with the email — there was only the text.

    If I had been more alert, I would have deleted that portion of the text.

  3. I remember years ago a short notice an Armenian woman was arrested in Israel for commemorating publically the Armenian tragedy by putting some candles. At that time I realised how fragile is the celebrated Turkish-Israeli strong connection.

    You may go to youtube and search for AtaTuerk and Jews, free-masons, homosexual.

    They claim AtaT. was a crypto-Jew knowing the judaistic basics much in the style Obama knows shahada etc. They claim also that many of the AtaT. close Young Turks were part of the crypto-Jewish islamic sect called “doenmeh”.

    He is termed also as “traitor of islam”.

    Remember also these clips are banned now in Turkey. The secular Turks are nowadays under siege…

  4. What would one expect from a Turkish muslim pseudo-Nation?

    If they are not kicking Jewish ass like they did Armenian and Greek ones already in the XX century, one must only be greatfull. Even in Balkanic Europe some 90% of the problems are derived from the Turkish presence and pseudo-Turkish Nationalism…

    … aka “Balkanic Islam”:
    – Albania
    – Bosnia Herzegovina
    – Kosovo
    – Eastern Montenegro next?

    Not to speak about the endangered though still European States there:
    – Macedonia
    – Montenegro
    – Bulgaria

    And a probable axis Turkey-Iran in case islamites gain foot in Turkey, as aparently they will, is 150 million strong or so. It’s half the United States, it’s pretty much the same as Russia.

    It won’t be pretty.

  5. In fact Alfonso the T. returned back from where Stalin displaced them finding that the most interesting land spots are occupied by others (sea-shore).
    So they are left in Crimea interior.

    Following your logic 90% states are “failed” states. Somehow you focus on a few. Amazing.

    Chechens returned as well – much earlier(end of 50.?). To damp your automatic reaction – let us note that Chechens used to be Christians and turned to islam for fighting back the Russians. Ossetians were removed from somewhere else much earlier (ante stalin).

    I am sure we could follow theprocesses of deislamization as well islamization in those areas.
    let us pay more attention. Kazachs and Kyrgyzs still have their shamanic cult. depends on clan/family.

  6. “Europe has little choice now but to embrace Antisemitism due to their burgeoning Muslim populations.” I agree Charlemagne and I think I picked something of this up from recent televised words of British Government Minister Hazel Blears when, amongst the convolution, she appeared to be blaming Israel for the Gaza situation because of its ‘disproportionate’ response. Apparently if someone attacks you you can only respond in kind! What then of Britain and America in Iraq and Afghanistan?

  7. Maybe the proportionate response would be firing back indiscriminately to Gaza. Then you might have such an interesting exchange (dialogue?) for the next 200 years.
