This is no surprise: the Qur’an depicts the Jews as the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); as fabricating things and falsely ascribing them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); claiming that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); loving to listen to lies (5:41); disobeying Allah and never observing his commands (5:13); disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more.
“Turks on Twitter blame Jews for Turkey’s unending crises,” by Uzay Bulut, Israel National News, December 31, 2016:
Andrei Karlov, the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, was fatally shot on 19 December at an art exhibition in Ankara. The perpetrator was a Turkish special forces police officer.
Many Turkish Twitter users, however, blamed the assassination on the Jews, calling it a “Jewish plot” and claiming that the assassin “had a Jewish look”.
According to the Turkish website Avlaremoz, which covers Jewish-related issues, some of the Twits included:
- The real enemy of all the Muslims and all of the oppressed in the world is Zionism and the cursed Israel. Behind the assassination is the Jewish lobby and the USA.
- The assassin is a lowlife agent of the Jewish lobby.
- The Jew does not want Turkish-Russian rapprochement. By inciting Islamophobia, their pawn in Turkey is also involved in the game. Whoever will benefit from this should be the perpetrator. (Dograel – a distorted form referring to the word Israel.)
- This looks like Jewish work. Simple and effective.
- The assassin has the typical Jewish look. I don’t know if it’s just me but he is a real Jew.
Another user implied that as Jews are not happy with Turkey’s invasion of Syria, code-named by Turkey as “Operation Euphrates Shield”, and the construction of the “Turkish Stream”, a planned natural gas pipeline running from Russia to Turkey as well as Turkey’s possible membership of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), or the “Shanghai Five”, whose leaders include China and Russia.
- “Assassination of the Russian ambassador aims at affecting three things in one act,” he wrote. “Russian-backed Operation Euphrates Shield, the Turkish Stream, and the Shanghai Five.”
As Israeli politician Naftali Bennett puts it, “Even when a British Muslim kills a British Christian there will always be someone who blames the Jews and Israel.”
Following the deadly attack, dozens of angry Turkish protesters stormed the headquarters of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) in Kayseri in response to the bombing. Some of the demonstrators climbed to the top of the building, set off a fire and furled down a flag of the far-right Nationalist Movement Party. Holding all Kurds responsible for the deaths of the soldiers, many Turks across Turkey raided the offices of the HDP, damaged or even destroyed the property inside.
But they particularly had one other group to blame: The Jews.
In an attempt to spew their Jew-hatred, many Turkish anti-Semites rushed to Twitter – as they often do following all crisis situations in Turkey – and accused the perpetrators of being Jewish. According to Avlaremoz, some Twits included:
- If you were not treacherous, if you were not kafir, if you did not have Jewish roots, you would not attack unarmed soldiers. Victory will be ours, hell will be yours.
- As you have cowardly asses, you were not able to confront our soldiers and you carried out a treacherous bomb explosion, you Jewish bastards. You will not make it. Revenge will be ours, remember that.
- Hey you, cowardly Jew, whose humanity is only as much as his money. As you and your dogs burn in hell, those who you have made martyrs will be in heaven.
- Obviously, we will not have peace unless there are explosions in Iran, England and in the Jewish lands.
- Cowardly, undignified ones with no honor. You do not have the courage to stand up to a single soldier of ours. Satans. Armenian, Jewish sperms. You will all be croaked.
- We do not want death penalty for them. We want torture for them. Let them all pay for what they have done, Jewish dogs.
- Vile, ignoble, Armenian, Jewish, dogs of Hitler. They attacked our soldiers again dastardly. May Allah curse you. The pigs of the EU, USA and Israel.
- You will not make it, ignoble servants of Jews. This system will change and this country and this nation will get rid of you. Get out and take your owners with you.
- You Godless ones, those without a holy book, you Armenian, Jewish, Persian, kafir underbred ones. Cursed sperms of rats. Enough is enough.
One even claimed that the attackers are descendents of Amr ibn Hisham, also known as Abu Jahl, one of the Meccan pagan Qurayshi leaders known for his critical opposition towards Islam’s founder, Muhammad.
- “Even if Abu Jahls and Pharaohs, who are your ancestors, your Mason fathers, your Jewish brothers, your Jonny uncles, and your Hans uncles get united, you will not make it.”…
