Turkey: Jewish groups urge Ankara to stop 'anti-Semitism'

I cannot say I am surprised that this is happening. After all wherever there is islam, there is anti-semitism. And violence.

Ankara, 23 Jan.(AKI) – Five prominent Jewish organisations in the United States have written to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan urging him to urgently address what they claim is a wave of anti-Semitism. A report the Turkish daily, Hurriyet, said on Friday the organisations had expressed concern over what they called “anti-Semitic manifestations” in Turkey.

Leaders of the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, B’nai B’rith International, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, made the plea to Erdogan.

“Turkey rightly prides itself on many centuries of coexistence with Jews. But today our Jewish friends in Turkey feel besieged and threatened,” the organisations said.

“Billboards around Istanbul are full of anti-Jewish propaganda posters. The door of a Jewish-owned shop near Istanbul University was covered with a poster that said, ‘Do not buy from here, since this shop is owned by a Jew.’

“The defacing of an Izmir synagogue has brought about the temporary closure of all but one of that city’s synagogues,” said the letter, citing such incidents as examples of increasing acts of anti-Semitism in Turkey.

The groups’ letter noted a connection between “the inflammatory denunciation of Israel by Turkish officials and the rise of anti-Semitism”.

Turkey, a key regional ally that had been sponsoring informal talks between Israel and Syria, was among the countries that condemned the Jewish state for its recent offensive in the Gaza Strip that killed more than 1,300 Palestinians and injured at least 5,000 others.

The Turkish prime minister has harshly criticised Israel, saying the Jewish state’s actions in Gaza was “a crime against humanity”.

According to Hurriyet, Jewish organisations are among Turkey’s strongest supporters in Washington.

    Hey I am turkish and think that this is totally reasonable.In fact I am pro this.Why shouldn't we be anti-semetic?give me a call if you want but remember I am still right-00905382742039

    Hello, Mehmet. Your post fascinates me. "WHY SHOULDN'T WE BE ANTI-SEMITIC?" I hope it prompts answers from many, but I shall not answer just at the moment, if you don't mind. I proudly admit to being pro-Semitic, and I hope to be able to explain why when I try to convince you not to be anti-Semitic. I admit to being anti-Islamic, too, so we might address this as we exchange messages. Maybe you can mount arguments to convince me to change this view. Out of interest ……. how many Turkish Nobel Prize winners have there been?

  • Beej

    Hello, again, Mehmet.
    You might wonder why my previous post to you ended with my question pertaining to Nobel Prize winners. I believe an argument may be constructed along the lines that a nation's winners of such coveted prizes, awarded to those whose great works benefit mankind, are an indication of that nation's intellectual value to our world. Yes, this will prompt guffaws of derision from those (including myself) who immediately and scornfully cry, "Henry Kissinger. Lee Duc Tho. Yasser Arafat," to name but three who should have been strangled at birth. (It's always the Peace Prize, isn't it?) Yet, there IS value in Nobel Prizes, and yes, a country rightfully feels proud when one of its own is recognized. As far as I can ascertain, America claims 171 winners, while the Jews have 169 (there is some overlap, here!). Arab Muslims have 6. Hmmm ………. Correct me if I am wrong, but Turkey has ONE. Who? Orhan Pamuk. For Literature, I believe. Interestingly, his Prize was awarded for his exposure of Turkish genocide of Albanians, and this caused much outrage in your country. "What? Turkey guilty of genocide? Never!"
    The point is this …… there is no race more devoted to scholarship than the Jews (if I may be allowed to use the term "race" loosely). As a member of a seemingly intellectually impoverished country, you would do well to quash your anti-Semitism and do your utmost to welcome Jews to your land. Put them in charge of your schools and universities. Their scholarship will do much for you.

  • Mehmet Yilmaz

    Check you thinking that Jews are more important than muslims.If there was a genocide of albanians then they probably deserved it.Turkey will always be better than the pit where you come from.Any Infidel will ALWAYS be worth less than muslims.So say what you like now, but when day you will be bowing down to us.The islamic society that deserves all!

  • Beej

    Not more important; more accomplished in all fields of intellectual endeavour. Your chilling comment about the slaughter of defenceless Albanians revolts me without surprising me: after all, you are Muslim. The rest of your message is unworthy of consideration or response, although I hope those who might be foolish enough to think that Islam is a religion of peace and love pay close attention to your revealing final two sentences.

    The only thing european women are good for is being whores and lets face it there not even that good at it, I should know I have had enough of them.I find the younger ones are better.

  • Liz

    News flash Mehmet…there was genocide of Albanians by Serbians. And the US stepped in to help stop it. No one deserves to be killed because of their religion, their race, their gender. My husband spent a year in Bosnia with the UN trying to resolve the conflict there. You are a rascist bigot, and your ilk reminds me of Hitler and Nazi Germany. Of course, there is no penalty for you being a man whore. Just for the women who fall prey to your sleezy come ons. You are an example of the reason no sane person should follow Islam. If the people are like you, we should fight you with every last breath in our bodies.

  • Beej

    Mehmet, your posts are so revealing, not just of your character, but those of Muslim men. Unlike you, I have never had to pay for it in my life, so I'll have to accept your word as to their level of performance. Might your disappointment, though, be due to your Muslim bonsai dick? Given the fact that you prefer the younger ones, it would seem to be so. But wait! Your liking for the little ones is in keeping with the tastes and inclinations of your preposterous prophet, isn't it?

    I do support the Serbians.Alas,I support ANYONE who fights muslims.If ETs from another galaxy

    The Turkish Army used to RAPE Christian boys throughout his bloody history.The harems
    were filled with blond european boys as young as six,seven-year old.

    The muslim tradition of sodomizing young boys were kept during the Armenian massacre
    of 1915,were several accounts witnessed Turkish soldiers raping young boys in front of their families.
    That's what Islam represents to me.

    I am bound to agree with your sentiments, JEWHAWK. Although I have repeatedly said on this site that I despise religion of any hue, Islam is at war with humanity, and it is the bounden duty of all others to eradicate this disease or to so weaken it that it becomes no more than a trivial irritation. Fail do do so and all will ultimately feel the edge of the sword of the wife-beaters.
    Interesting point: Muslims have responded vociferously to many "accusations" levelled at them on this site, but not one of them has protested against their wife-beating exploits.

    Dear John,you're absolutely right.America is facing a foe far more dangerous than
    the Nazis and Commies,for they were never disguised as a "peaceful religion" since
    the beginning.
    We,Jews,are just a few,about 13 or maybe 14 million people that actually can only
    seek a certain and safe refuge in Israel,a place no bigger than the State of Maine,I
    guess,so we REALLY need America's support to SURVIVE amidst a JUNGLE of
    fanaticism,sheer hatred,lunacy and violence that our muslim neighbors harbor in
    their cruel hearts.
    Thanks to our leaders,Israel learned to fight with its own fists,therefore we need
    no foreign troops to protect us,but American new weapons's systems to keep the
    technological edge between us and the followers of the 'religion of peace',for
    unfortunately, they only respect BRUTE FORCE.

    Mustafa-That-Was-Mehmet:
    Turkey will rule again, will it? Gosh your words quite put me off my cornflakes. How am I to set about my duties for the day knowing that such a threat exists? Tell me, though: what gives you cause to believe that your nation of rug manufacturers is in the ascendancy? What signs foretell this forthcoming astonishing transformation? A man of your sterling qualities would never mouth empty rhetoric, so you must have concrete reasons for your revelation, yes? And what is Turkey's timetable? Got a vast modern army, navy and airforce in training, have they? Stockpiling thermonuclear weapons and ICBMs, are they? Or does Turkey have a cunning plan involving stealth flying carpets? I'm dying to know.
    Are you honestly so steeped in Iron Age beliefs that you truly expect your foul "prophet" to rise again? Even if this childish notion of yours were to come to pass, I think you would find his Second Coming disappointing because, knowing what he was like last time, and given the vast population of the present world, he would spend all his time despoiling the multitudes of children, having little time to attend to Turkey's ambition – or should I call that death wish?
    I'll conclude by looking at your second sentence. "They don't exactly make it hard for us …." You poor thing. What a distressing condition to have to confess! Help is on its way, however: In the West there are little blue tablets called "Viagra". Procure some forthwith.

    I really like to read your posts.

  • Beej

    JEWHAWK, there are many sources of information pertaining to Turkish denial of the Armenian genocide available on the net. They do a more thorough job of it than I can. To a large extent, though, Turks are just quibbling about the word "genocide", claiming that since it was not official government policy to exterminate the Armenian people, that word is inapplicable. They say other outlandish things, too. Perhaps the most distressing aspect of the whole tragic affair is that modern Turks refuse to admit it ever happened, unlike modern Germans who recognise the Holocaust and feel ashamed that their country could have been caught up in such madness and its attendant ruthlessly efficient slaughter. The Turks, however, are Muslims, and this makes all the difference, for followers of The Paedophile consider all other inhabitants of our planet to be of no account, so the murders and rapes and mutilations and forced death marches of 1915 fail to impinge upon their consciences. They don't care. No different from butchering cattle, in their minds. It astonishes me that non-Muslims fail or refuse to acknowledge this Islamic disease, many of them pointing the finger at Israel as it daily has to fight for its very existence. Why is this so? What else must Muslims do or say to convince people of the threat they pose to Civilisation? Lurking in their mosques and caves, Muslim planners must be licking their chops with glee at such gullibility, for they know they are winning. Fools like Jimmy Carter are a godsend for these despots. He sits there, the epitome of calm reasonableness, so understanding and so trusting and so willing to believe the words of maniacs, perhaps imagining history will regard him as The (Oily)Voice of Love.

    Do you live in Israel? I'm excited to see what happens in the next couple weeks with Bibi NEtanyahu leading the polls to become the next Prime Minister of Israel. If you don't already know, Bibi is a HAWK. Many call him the Churchill of our time. Here's a recent article from Investors Business Daily.

    <h2>An Israeli Churchill</h2>


    War On Terror: The comparisons between Israeli electoral front-runner Benjamin Netanyahu and Winston Churchill are all too obvious. Too bad statesmen who have learned history's lessons are so rare.

    As British historian Graham Stewart notes in his 1999 book "Burying Caesar," chronicling the 1930s political rivalry between Churchill and Neville Chamberlain, Churchill, "in contrast to many of his colleagues, anticipated the problem of a resurgent Germany even before Hitler's ambitions had become more fully evident." Stewart points out that Churchill made his first House of Commons speech on the subject no later than November 1932.

    It was not the first example of the Last Lion's remarkable prescience. As another acclaimed British historian, Paul Johnson, observed in his sweeping history of the 20th century, "Modern Times," regarding the rise of Lenin in Russia, all but one Western politician failed "to grasp the enormous significance of the establishment of this new type of totalitarian dictatorship, or the long-term effect of its implantation."

    Johnson said the exception was Churchill, whose strong sense of history caused him to realize "a fatal watershed was being reached." In 1918, he said Lenin and Trotsky should be hanged and the next spring he argued that of all history's tyrannies, "the Bolshevik tyranny is the worst, the most destructive, the most degrading."

    As former Israeli prime minister and current Likud Party head Bibi Netanyahu enjoys a comfortable lead in the polls a week and a half before election day, his words of warning regarding Iran should remind the free world of how Churchill's advice went unheeded for so long — at the cost of millions of innocent lives.

    Speaking to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday, Netanyahu cautioned that economic woes are distracting the West from a far greater danger. The former finance minister said that while global economic woes are reversible, "the acquisition of nuclear weapons by a fanatic radical regime" is not.

    "We have never had, since the dawn of the nuclear age, nuclear weapons in the hands of such a fanatical regime," Netanyahu added. Stopping Tehran "remains the greatest challenge facing the leaders of the 21st century at the beginning of the 21st century."

    For years most of the world has dithered in regard to Iran. Deluded governments still believe that an Islamofascist regime awaiting the coming of the 12th imam and an apocalyptic holy war can respond to diplomatic carrots and sticks with rationality.

    Fortunately Israel, the nation that has the most to lose from a nuclear Iran, may soon be led by perhaps the sole 21st century statesman who possesses a strong, Churchillian sense of history.

    Food for thought, John. The problem that faces Civilisation, though, is far more serious than that which confronted the world in 1939. Full scale war was bound to defeat Hitler and, a bit later, Japan. Islam's tribes, however, will never engage the West in such action, no matter what clowns such as Mehmet might say. The dangers are more subtle and thus deadlier. Netanyahu might possess Churchillian bulldog tenacity, but the US, Britain, Germany, France, etc. all need Churchills, and that is a tall order. Hell – France produce a Churchill??? Britain is more likely to spew forth another Tony Blair, God help us, while the White House incumbent does not strike me as a man of teeth. Appeasement is so much easier, is it not? Education of the masses is the only answer. People must be forced out of their cosy closets so that they can at last perceive that everything they hold dear is at risk. Only then can Churchills rise to take the necessary steps to thwart the long-term aims of Islam. Western countries must become as hostile to Islam as Islamic states are to infidels.

    Using the logic of those whiny pussies the Turks, it can then be concluded that what happened in Gaza was not genocide, since Israel's goal was not to exterminate the jihadis… I mean Palestinians, but to halt the rockets from being launched every day.

    As for what muslims must do, I fear it will take something catastrophic, that will dwarf 9/11, perhaps even Hiroshima, before the f*cktard leftie code pinko crowd pulls their heads out of each others' asses.

    Mehmet, your penultimate sentence explains why Islam spread as rapidly as it did. Many Muslims would have us believe otherwise, but it's good to know there are those of you who freely admit to your cancerous nature. Your prediction about fighting Europe to the death suggests some kind of military involvement, a concept so breathtaking in its scope that it can be dismissed as the rabid raving of a man who does not understand the world. But let's consider it, nevertheless. Get out your world atlas. Now, in what direction(s) will the mighty Turkish Army strike? Got your eye on Greece again? Or would that be divulging state secrets to the enemy? I wonder, too, when this suicidal action is planned to occur. Building lots of H-bomb-proof shelters, are you? Do you believe America would take no action to help its allies? Imagine the 7th Fleet sailing up the Bosporus – that alone should give your military planners adequate food for thought. Who is going to provide the vast tonnages of equipment necessary to undertake such a venture? The Russians? Don't think so, somehow, particularly since Russia makes up a substantial portion of the Europe you wish to conquer. You know, I'm sure, that the Russians refer to Muslims as Blackasses, an appellation that cannot engender high hopes of assistance from that direction. China? Nope. China is heavily dependent upon trade with the West, so it is unlikely to arm a country that, if victorious, would reduce Europe to the economic level of other utterly useless Islamic states. Or do you have a secret weapon – the mighty Allah hurling fire and brimstone upon your enemies and contriving other miracles to assist his valiant legions? No Mehmet, my advice to you is to stop smoking that stuff.
