Erdogan and Cohorts are Full-Fledged Anti-Semites in Targeting Hacham Bashi, Shaked

(Note especially the last couple paragraphs.)

ynet:
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.

"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!"

In the right-wing newspaper's editorial, Ali Karahasanoğlu wrote: "After the barrage of missiles which hit the capital city of Tel Aviv, Israel has been pushed into a corner and is crying out for a ceasefire, which at the moment only serves Israel and the United States.

"The IDF is using forbidden weapons, intentionally killing children and murdering Muslims for the sake of murdering Muslims. Hamas is unprepared to accept dictations from Israel and the US, and will only lay down its weapon after its understandings are accepted.

"While all this is happening, the journal of the Jewish community in Turkey, 'Shalom,' is referring to the murder of children in Gaza as 'taking care of terrorists.'"

Erdogan, who was slated to sign a reconciliation agreement with Israel soon, likened Knesset Member Ayelet Shaked of the Bayit Yehudi party to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler this week.

Referring to Operation Protective Edge, the Turkish prime minister accused Israel of "systematically committing horrors and acts of terror" against the Palestinians since 1948.

"There is a Knesset member who says repeatedly, 'The Palestinians are our enemies,'" Erdogan said of Shaked, adding that this mentality was no different from that of Hitler. "If these words were said by a Palestinian, the entire world would condemn it."

Erdogan, who is seeking to replace Abdullah Gul as Turkey's president, asked in his weekly address to his party's supporters, "How long will the world keep silent in light of the terror committed by Israel?"

He denied that Turkey was about to restore its relations with Israel and accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government of committing "a massacre against the Palestinian population."

But Zaman, one of the leading newspapers in Turkey which has an Islamic political alignment, accused Erdogan himself of acquiescence to Israel's policy in the operation.

"Behind the aggressive rhetoric, the regime is fully cooperating with Israel at the Palestinians' expense," wrote Ali Bulaç. "Don't let the prime minister's words fool you – the economic cooperation between Israel and Turkey has never been better. And who is paying the price? The poor Palestinians."

Meanwhile, on the backdrop of the fighting in Gaza, Turkish initiatives to boycott Israeli goods and Jewish-owned businesses are gaining momentum on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

Under the hashtag #zulmesessizkalamam ("I will not keep quite in light of the persecution"), Turkey's residents are urged to boycott products such as Coca-Cola (as one of its owners, Warren Buffett, supports Israel by investing in companies like Iscar) and are provided with explanations on how to spot Israeli products in local supermarkets.

"I have never felt as threatened as I have in the past year," says Linet, a textile importer. "The government is inflaming the hatred and anti-Semitism and we are simply living in fear.

"Many of those who have not left yet – and the vast majority of Jews immigrated to Europe and Israel a long time ago – are weighing their options," she adds.
When will the world see Erdogan for who he really is?

Let us hope our Turkish brothers and sister don't have to get too painful of a kick in the pants to get the message.

That man is sick.
And it's part of the Master Plan to get the Jews out of Turkey and into Israel! Obvious. Same with France. We are getting closer to the full Geulah. Poor America, I'm afraid they I'll have to be rescued, if it's possible at all.

To all of you:

1) Neshama did not say lashon hara

2) Neshama and I are here on the front lines. "Living in Eretz Yisrael is like keeping all of the misswoth."
"Living in Hutz laAretz is like doing avodah zara"

3) No one discounts the importance of doing misswoth wherever you are, and encouraging others to do the same. But doing it for the sake of reaching critical mass in your misswah piggy banks for mashiah to come? This hashqafah (really this mentality) only started to develop not more than 500 years ago.

Stop it all you Chosen of Hashem!

Let's agree on one thing...
Israel is the land Hashem gave you all. For all Jews who live outside of Israel, do not think you are safe.
Are yor not seeing what is going on? You may pray, good, do Mitzvots , good. Learn Torah, good. but this will not stop those who hate you, to look at you and say: Oh, thse are good Jews, they pray, we will let them live in peace!"
No, they will not. Look what happened in France and Holland!.
Israel, is the home for Jews, stop putting each other down.
If those from Israel say things that have rubbed sons of you the wrong way, and you got ready to ponce on No 1 and 2, they are only trying to reach out to see you do not belong in the USA or else where. Israrl, only? Israrl needs ALL it's children to cone home. Your. Living there is not good. go home to your Hashem. Given land.
Just a Noahide, an I. Loving you all.

All this is nonsense. Every Jew who knows what it is to be Jew knows that we should all be in EY; but many who are in the lands of galut are still there because they have NO choice. Most others are Jews in name only and nebich don't even understand that they are in galut and are the ones that will most likely find out the hard way; hopefully, not. Best to stop preaching to the choir, as every Yiddishe neshama is yearning for the geulah. As said before, the others are like kidnapped children and don't even know what being a Jew means. H' will save all His children. Those who can should come home but we also need to understand first that there is 'golus' in the State at this time, but it is still better to live in EY than anywhere else on earth!
