Erdogan won't say 'You Shall Not Kill' in Arabic

Why should he?  Its not in the Koran.

Instead, the Koran says the Jews are the vilest of creatures, sons of apes and swine. The Koran tells Muslims to  “kill unbelievers wherever you find them”.  Muhammad also said  “kill every Jew who falls into your hand”.

And every soldier of Allah knows:

Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims will kill them, and the Jews will hide behind stones and trees, and the stones and the trees will say: Oh Muslims, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him” – except for the gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews.

Hurriyet writer horrified by PM’s silence on Itamar attack, asks ‘what rank was 3-month ‘soldier’?’ (Y-Net News thanks to the RoP))

While the world keeps silent on the terror attack in Itamar, a columnist for a popular Turkish paper chose to inveigh against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his neglect to condemn the murders of the five family members.

In an article entitled ‘You Shall Not Kill’ in the Hurriyet daily, Burak Bekdil asks, “I am still curious about what rank the 3-month old Israeli ‘soldier’ held. Captain? Lieutenant colonel? Certainly too young to be a general.”

Their prophet Muhammad said to do it.  Palestinians celebrated it.   Hamas supporters even praised Allah for it.  But those of us who don’t follow the “Religion of Peace” probably had a much different reaction to the massacre of a Jewish family.

Bekdil reminds his readers of a 2010 speech in which a hot-tempered Erdogan expressed harsh criticism of Israel, emphasizing the deteriorating relations between the two states.

“‘These (people) even see babies in their cradles as a threat. They have killed babies in their mothers’ arms.’ These people, naturally, were the Israelis,” Bekdil writes.

“Mr. ErdoÄŸan said in both Turkish and English: ‘You shall not kill.’ Then he showed his linguistic capabilities and went on: ‘You still don’t get it? Then I shall speak to you in your own language: Lo tir’tsach!'”

In other speeches, Bekdil tells his readers, Erdogan has said that his rage over child killings has nothing to do with race or gender. “All the same, he has been mute since Saturday,” the day in which the Fogels were brutally murdered, the columnist says.

Turkey did eventually publish a short statement of condemnation, a few days after the attack, but it came from the foreign minister, Ahmet Davutoglu.

“Most predictably, we have not heard Mr. Erdogan saying ‘You shall not kill’ in Arabic, and we probably never will. That’s hardly surprising since we have never heard Mr. Erdogan speaking ‘indiscriminately’ in the past against the killing of children and defenseless people in Itamar, or elsewhere in Israel,” Bekdil says.
