Erdogan Propaganda Rag in Turkey Threatens Jews; Demands Apology

Collective Justice

A Turkish daily affiliated with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on the country’s Jewish community to apologize for the Palestinian casualties of the Israeli operation in Gaza.-Turkish newspaper close to govt threatens Jews

“You came here after being banished from Spain,” Yeni Akit correspondent Faruk Köse wrote Wednesday in an open letter to Hakham Bashi, the chief rabbi of Turkey’s Jewish community. “You have lived comfortably among us for 500 years and gotten rich at our expense. Is this your gratitude – killing Muslims? Erdogan, demand that the community leader apologize!”

Apparently, even after being citizens for 500 years, Jews in Turkey are still not considered Turkish. (EoZ)

Why everyone is getting the “Sderot Cinema” story wrong

This photo taken last week, of Sderot residents going to a hilltop to watch IDF strikes in Gaza, has taken on a life of its own. And no one – not the original photographer/tweeter nor the “analysts” – have understood the scene pictured there.

sderot2The New York Times reported

There are some people in the region who cheer rockets that are aimed directly at civilians, though:

There is no hand-wringing over that, no Arabs who feel that their people have lost their moral compass, no triumphant articles in the New York Times about how we can feel morally superior to the Arabs.. No, when  Arabs cheer Jews being targeted or indeed being killed, the world yawns.

Chileans also hate da Jooozzz

  1. “. “You have lived comfortably among us for 500 years and gotten rich at our expense. Is this your gratitude – killing Muslims? ”

    Imagine the outcry if Australian, Canadian, UK, German or US officials said to Turks (o palestinians ) resident in their countries:

    “. “You have lived comfortably among us for 50 years and gotten rich at our expense. Is this your gratitude – killing non-muslims?

  2. ““You have lived comfortably among us for 500 years and gotten rich at our expense.”

    -Said the Turks, who’ve gotten rich and “civilized” off the backs of the Byzantines.

    Would love to see the so called examples of “gotten rich at our expense.” But, won’t be holding my breath.

    1. Following Muhammad’s mandate to kill “any Jew that falls into your power,” a Muslim follower stabbed his Jewish business partner to death. The Muslim’s brother was initially horrified by the crime, since they were not only on friendly terms with the victim, but the merchant was integral to their own livelihood:

      The apostle said, “Kill any Jew that falls into your power.” Thereupon Muhayyisa leapt upon Ibn Sunayna, a Jewish merchant with whom they had social and business relations, and killed him. Huwayyisa was not a Muslim at the time, though he was the elder brother. When Muhayyisa killed [the Jew] Huwayyisa began to beat him, saying, “You enemy of God, did you kill him when much of the fat on your belly comes from his wealth?” Muhayyisa answered, “Had the one who ordered me to kill him ordered me to kill you I would have cut your head off.” This was the beginning of Huwayyisa’s acceptance of Islam… [Huwayyisa] replied exclaimed, “By God, a religion which can bring you to this is marvelous!” and he became a Muslim. (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 554)
      The unbelieving brother is quite impressed with Islam’s ability to influence a man even to kill his own family on Muhammad’s order. As such, he accepts the “Religion of Peace” on the spot (assuming his conversion was not out of self-preservation).
