Islamic Antisemitism Alert from modern, enlightened, secular Turkey: “Turkey: Protestors burn Israeli flag,” by Daniel Edelson for Ynet, October 5 (thanks to Neil):
A mass anti-Israel rally was held in Istanbul Monday. The demonstrators, who rallied in support of the riots in east Jerusalem, carried Palestinian Authority flags and posters of the al-Aqsa Mosque, and set Israeli flags on fire.
“Turkey has two facets – the modern European one, which is rational and tolerant, and the Islamist one, which is sometimes hostile to Israel,” a Foreign Ministry source told Ynet.
No kidding, really? But don’t the Islamists read the Koran and know that in it Allah refers to the Jews as “People of the Book” and calls upon Muslims to respect them? Have the Turks who attended this anti-Israel rally been reading Islamophobic hate literature?
