Turk PM Lashes out at Israel! “No conscience, No honor, No pride, Spitting Death”

26 07 2014


“[Israelis] have no conscience, no honor, no pride. Those who condemn Hitler day and night have surpassed Hitler in barbarism,” said Erdoğan. He accused Israel of rejecting ceasefires that Hamas has proposed and “spitting death, spitting blood.”

The Hitler comparison has become far too common and it is over the top.   Even so none other than Hillary Clinton used it far more outrageously and unjustifiably about Vladimir Putin and Russia just weeks ago.

That said, the rest of Erdogan’s verbal assault on the Israelis is understandable and in many ways justified.   The Israelis and their supporters do in fact systematically practice a kind of brutal killing and gross deceit that all too tragically lends itself to the old anti-Jewish anti-semitic stereotypes of yesteryear.   And when so many of the Jews in the world, as well as in Israel, remain silent and do not themselves denounce the mass Israeli killing, lies, and worse-than-apartheid occupation realities, others like Erdogan get the spotlight.
