“I believe that the gorillas and chimps living today in the forests of North Africa are cursed Jews.” Seyfi Sahin is not a lone lunatic. When the British adventurer Sir Richard F. Burton posed as a Muslim and made the pilgrimage to Mecca in 1852, in Arabia his group spotted some monkeys, which the Muslims immediately declared were Jews. And why not? It’s in the Qur’an, as Sahin explains below, and “Allah always tells the truth.”
“Article In Radical Islamist Pro-AKP Turkish Daily: Gorillas, Chimps Are Cursed, Mutated Jews,” MEMRI, February 12, 2016:
In his January 31, 2016 column in the pro-AKP government, radical Islamist daily Vahdet, journalist Seyfi Sahin wrote that the evolutionary theory of “the Jew” Darwin contradicts Allah’s word in the Koran. Claiming to be a physician, Sahin argued that humans did not evolve from monkeys, but rather that monkeys evolved from perverted Jews whom Allah cursed and punished. The column was widely criticized by Turkey’s independent opposition media.
Following are excerpts from Sahin’s article, titled “Monkeys Evolved from Humans.” 
“Those Among You Who Violated The Saturday [Sabbath] Prohibitions… Will Become Miserable Monkeys [Koran 5:60]”“Our God, the Creator of the universe, has also confirmed these truths. ‘You know those among you who violated the Saturday [Sabbath] prohibitions. For them it is said that they will become miserable monkeys [Koran 2:65].’
“Also: ‘Whomever Allah has cursed and punished, and those He turned into monkeys, pigs, and Satan worshippers, occupy the worst place [in His eyes], and they are perverts that have deviated from their path [Koran 5:60].’
“‘And when they became arrogant and did not change their ways, they were told to become low and contemptible monkeys [Koran 7:166].’
“The [Koranic] verses above show us that monkeys have come from humans. Allah always tells the truth.”
The Theory Of Evolution Is “An Opinion” By “A Jew Called Darwin”; “The Gorillas And Chimps Living Today In The Forests Of North Africa Are Cursed Jews”
“The theory of evolution was put forward by a Jew called Darwin. Therefore, it is an opinion. The aim of this theory is to turn the non-Jews away from their religion, to harm their faith, and to make them suspicious about their religion. Darwin, being a Jew, believed, lived, and was buried according to his religion. His real targets were the Muslims. Most likely, Darwin knew about these Koranic verses. In the Holy Koran, Allah responded very well to these perverts.
“Jews, who are well organized in the world’s financial and scientific institutions, are so powerful that they terrorize the world of science. Through propaganda and through the reiteration of this nonsense, they have brainwashed and imposed this opinion as a rule, and sold this deception as scientific reality. Even some ignorant theologians have believed the propaganda of this theory…
“I believe that the gorillas and chimps living today in the forests of North Africa are cursed Jews. They are perverted humans that have mutated. This thought is much stronger and scientific than Darwin’s theory. But we the Muslims, who believe this, do not have banks, money, or the organization inside the world of science [like the Jews have]. Neither do we have propaganda outlets, in order to scream this truth. But we have our intellect, we have our faith, and we have our Allah. Alhamdullillah [with the grace of Allah].”
