In fact no amount of pages or lines would be sufficient to explain the Qur’anic chapters and our Lord Prophet’s [Muhammad’s] words that tell us of the betrayals of the Jews. … The prophets sent to them, such as Zachariah and Isaiah, were murdered by the Jews…
Erbakan mentored current AKP leaders President Gul and Prime Minister Erdogan. Both were previously active members of Erbakan’s assorted fundamentalist political parties, serving in mayoral, ministerial, and parliamentary posts. The IHH — whose violent operatives featured prominently in the Mavi Marmara flotilla anti-Semitic incitement and subsequent bloodshed –Â has its originsÂ in this same Orthodox Islamic Milli GÃ¶rÃ¼ÅŸ movement.
In 1974, Erdogan, while serving as president of the Istanbul Youth GroupÂ of his mentor, former Prime Minister Erbakan’s National Salvation Party, wrote, directed, and played the leading role in a theatrical play entitledÂ Maskomya, staged throughout Turkey during the 1970s.Â Mas-Kom-YaÂ was a compound acronym for “Masons-Communists-Yahudi” – the latter meaning “Jews.” The play focused on the evil, conspiratorial nature of these three entities whose common denominator was Judaism.
Now, finally, we learn that Erdogan’s religiously-inspired Jew-hatred has not passed unnoticed by Gabby Levy, the Israeli ambassador to Turkey, whose term is scheduled to expire in a week. As recorded in aÂ Wikileaks cableÂ from October 2009, sent by the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, Turkey:
Levy dismissed political calculation as a motivator for Erdogan’s hostility, arguing the prime minister’s party had not gained a single point in the polls from his bashing of Israel. Instead, Levy attributed Erdogan’s harshness to deep-seated emotion: “He’s a fundamentalist. He hates us religiously and his hatred is spreading.”
