When all else fails, blame the Jew

ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel on Tuesday of having a hand in the Egyptian military’s overthrow of president Mohamed Mursi, making comments likely to further undermine efforts to restore Ankara’s strained ties with Israel.

turkey-blames-israel-for-muslim-brotherhood-overthrow-in-egypt-coupErdogan, who has become one of the fiercest critics of the Islamist leader’s removal last month, also said he feared “autocratic regimes” would take root if the West failed to respect election results.

Almost 900 people have died in the past week since the military-backed Egyptian government cracked down on supporters of Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood, who want the country’s first freely-elected president reinstated.

“What do they say in Egypt? Democracy is not the ballot box. What is behind it? Israel. We have in our hands documentation,” Erdogan told provincial leaders of his AK Party.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry declined to respond to Erdogan’s allegation. “This is a statement well worth not commenting on,” said ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor.

Mursi was the most prominent Islamist to gain power through the ballot box after the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings and ruled for a year until his removal on July 3. Erdogan’s AK party, which has won the last three Turkish general elections, traces its roots to a banned Islamist movement.

Erdogan did not say what documentation he had, but referred to comments he said an Israeli cabinet minister had made before Egyptian parliamentary elections held after a popular uprising pushed President Hosni Mubarak from power.

“Before the 2011 elections, during a session in France, the justice minister and an intellectual from France – he’s Jewish too – they used exactly this comment: ‘Even if the Muslim Brotherhood wins the election, they will not win because democracy is not the ballot box’,” Erdogan said.

“That is exactly what happened,” he said in the comments aired live by state broadcaster TRT, without naming either the minister or the French intellectual.

Turkey’s relations with Israel have soured in recent years and hit a low in May 2010 when Israeli commandos killed nine Turkish activists while storming the Mavi Marmara, a ship in a convoy seeking to break an Israeli naval blockade of Gaza.

Earlier this year, Erdogan called Zionism “a crime against humanity”, prompting objections from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. President Barack Obama subsequently orchestrated an Israeli apology for the Mavi Marmara raid.

At least two senior AK Party officials have suggested there was Jewish involvement in anti-government protests that rocked Turkey in late May and June.

Erdogan repeatedly blamed unnamed foreign circles for those protests, in what he deemed an anti-democratic effort to undo Turkey’s last three elections, in which the AK Party increased its share of the vote each time.

“The West needs to learn the definition of democracy, Erdogan said. “If it cannot … these clashes will carry the world towards a different place. What is that? It will take it towards autocratic regimes. That is our concern.” source – Yahoo News

BLAME THE JEWS, what a disgusting comment to make, WHAT so dont have any human rights. The persecution of Jews was outrageous in the 2nd world war, please dont tell me it can happen again. By the way I am not Jewish, but have great respect for these people, I cannot remember any time that they have interfeared in my culture, or demanded that I have to follow their religion I lived side by side with JEWISH people in the East End of london right up till i was twenty, and also worked for JEWISH Employers who were very good to me.

August 20, 2013 3:54 pm

I don’t know what planet you live on but I see things different.They interfere in our culture and our society all the time,we live in a jew world,that is why our world is so messed up.

August 20, 2013 6:47 pm

“Revelation 2:9” – I suggest that you read and study the rest of the Book of the Revelation. It offers great insight, shows great judgements from God, and you will see a great redemption for Israel. Also Ephesians 6:12 shows one reason why the world is messed up.

August 20, 2013 8:20 pm

With a code name like Revelation 2:9..i take it you are a christian. that being so , I recommend you change your attitude towards the Lords people. We will have to give account regarding our treatment of Jews!

August 20, 2013 9:39 pm

Shame on you and your comment whom ever you are!!!

The Jews are God’s CHOSEN PEOPLE!!

Read your Bible!! God Blesses those who BLESS ISRAEL!!

The Jews are ISRAEL

August 20, 2013 9:43 pm

OH, by the way, in case you fail to seriously watch what is going on in todays world, the world has snubbed God, and is taken out of the work place, schools, most of all public places, on and on and on!!

This world is so corrupt and evil, and I for one can hardly wait till all scripture is fulfilled and God cleanses this Earth of ALL SIN, and HE WILL make this Earth a pleasant place to live again once HE rids Satan and his minions and everyone who chose to follow evil.

Come Lord Jesus!!

August 20, 2013 1:10 pm

This Erdogan is a real tool, hates Israel, though it’s a little surprising he’s the first national leader to lash out at Israel, for all the usual, recent Muslim problems with being hate challenged. I was waiting for Syria or Egypt to try and turn the conflict on Israel, to divert attention from their own, internal and debilitating cases of Muhammadic rabies, try to unite and rally all the enflamed head loppers against Israel, instead of against each other. Whatever, everybody knows that anything evil that happens in the Muslim world, “The Jews made me do it!” Of course, the Coptic Christians and others, who’ve lived peacefully in Egypt for generations, are to blame for all Muslim violence and their churches being burned, in this case, “The Christians made me do it!”

The UN really needs to get involved, find a way of preventing all these Jews and Christians causing the Muslims to slaughter each other like wild animals, on their own streets. It’s probably some Coptic Jewish alien mental telepathy technology being beamed into their brains, causing Muslims to constantly be engaging in all the worst behaviors of Satan. I mean, we all know Islam… Read more »

I want documentation

August 20, 2013 2:00 pm

Teresa: there’s no documentation. You know that! Muslims are taught to lie to get their own way at a very early age. I taught a gr. 7 class in Toronto which was half Muslim kids – my first encounter with the “Religion of Peace”. I started out believing the munchkins. After awhile, there were so many excuses, I started calling their parents, who had different excuses. When I told them what their child said, they flew off the handle, “Are you calling me a liar? How dare you?” Then another lie, and another, etc. The Koran intends the lying to be used to draw infidels to Islam. They use it in everyday life! I stopped asking, started handing out “F’s” and requiring the parents’ signatures. Amazingly, the lies stopped! I NEVER believe a word out of a Muslim’s mouth! Except, of course, when they talk about their hatred of Jews. They hate because they KNOW the Jews are God’s chosen people! Israel will never be destroyed! Our Lord will protect them, and will destroy those who seek to do Israel harm! He… Read more »

Hi Jody, well there aint nothing Godly about the UN that’s for sure. Oh don’t misunderstand me I totally agree w you. I am just saying when someone says something as a fact, or states they have documentation I want to read it and look further is all. That’s just me! Have a Blessed day in the Lord and thanks for writing!

August 20, 2013 3:47 pm

Israel runs the UN,they set it up. And look up the word Kol Nidre. The jews really got you brainwashed.

August 20, 2013 9:46 pm

GOD has me brainwashed, and I am so glad.

I love truth, the Bible is truth!!


August 20, 2013 5:11 pm

That’s right Jody, the lying ‘weapon’ is in the Koran (it’s called taqiyya -Obama does it a lot btw) and it’s used almost from infancy by muslims, unfortunately. I have been around Arabic muslims a lot in my life (grew up with a lot of them) and no matter how involved or not they are in religion (my comrades were not) it seems that lying is ingrained in their behaviour, it’s quite frightening to tell the truth. You just know you can’t trust them after a while. But really, it’s as much cultural as religious. The poor kids can’t do anything but behave the way their environment presses them to. Being truthful would be very much scorned and not understood by the family, it would look like a defect, a weakness.

Hence their schizophrenia in Western countries where muslims are expected to behave this way in society and that way with their own. About taqiyya: lying and pretending to be friends is the attitude required by the Koran when muslims are in numerical inferiority, then comes the arrogance, the claims and the violence. And the beheading of non-muslims on the sidewalk in broad daylight, like it happened in London or… Read more »

Hi Diane, you misunderstand me. I simply stated that when you for instance tell me something and want me to take you at your word, if I have no documentation why should I believe you. I do NOT think that about Scripture. Have Blessed eve

August 20, 2013 6:12 pm

I thought we were talking about the anti-Jew bias at large. And I thought you wanted documentation to more or less prove Rev’s ravings wrong at last. That’s why I’m only pointing to the Bible on this topic. You don’t have to believe what I plus other believers who naturally support and love Israel say, unless the Bible says so (and it does proclaim it).
But if you do not have a conviction in your heart the enemy will always find a way to sneak in and no amount of documentation would ever be enough, that’s what I meant with the Eve and Luke 16 examples. We need to seek the face of the Lord when we are not sure. :) Thank you for the blessing, our Lord bless you too Teresa.

August 20, 2013 6:22 pm

I don’t have a dog in this fight but I also know what I read from both sides of Archives and Documentation from all parts of the World. And I do not take anyones word for anything pretty much. I go find it myself. Don’t make the mistake of assuming anything about me please, thanks,you have a nice eve!

August 20, 2013 6:40 pm

Oh sorry, I was mistaken indeed. Then when you said “I want documentation” what were you referring to?

August 20, 2013 6:56 pm

NOT to fuss! I meant this: WHEN YOU SAY YOU HAVE DOCUMENTATION OF SUBJECT, I WANT TO SEE IT. simple in my simple mind, no youre not simple minded I am. I am black and white no gray so ER whats his name better show me something of shut his Propaganda up cuz we all know it.

August 20, 2013 7:04 pm

Finally got it. :p

August 20, 2013 7:08 pm

you take care!! :)

August 20, 2013 5:42 pm

You have definitely explained Obama’s actions. And, he could care less.

August 21, 2013 8:55 am

Diane, you are correct. God did send someone who rose from the dead, His Only Begotten Son, and they didn’t believe Him and they still don’t! They want something in addition to God’s Holy Word, whether it’s trying to work for their salvation (Gal. 2:16), putting their trust in man (ministers, articles, books, etc.) (Isaiah 2:22) or pride in their own knowledge. (Ps. 10:4)

Theresa B You are right in checking to see if these things are so. God doesn’t want us to believe everything we read but to check to see if it “lines up” with the Bible.
Acts 17:10-12
(KJV) And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

August 20, 2013 2:11 pm

wow this shocked me for my State of Co, wondering about you all. The whole demographic did I guess.


August 20, 2013 4:47 pm

Israel, the scapegoat once again. Don’t know the truth, blame Israel!

August 21, 2013 12:37 pm

Or Bush! We can blame Bush!

August 20, 2013 5:19 pm

@ Rev 2:9:

Why are you on this site? To taunt? You obivously are NOT a Believer of Jesus Christ. You are a Muslim here to disrupt. Unfortunately for you, Your day in Hell will come.

August 20, 2013 5:27 pm

Chill, dude. Rev. is a good friend of mine. :)

August 20, 2013 5:22 pm

Don’t waste any time responding to Rev 2:9. He is inconsequential.

August 20, 2013 5:28 pm

Step away from the bong, sir.

August 20, 2013 5:32 pm


August 21, 2013 5:04 am

This is true blumed. Its all about herded for the Jewish. Not worth reading. Evil based.

August 21, 2013 5:04 am


August 20, 2013 5:31 pm

This would be the expected response. Sort of like Rahm’s “don’t let a good crisis go to waste”. The Muslim takeover of the mideast is threatened by infighting (civil wars in Syria and Egypt). The unified front was supposed to give them strength to destroy Israel. Erdogan has been known for his megalomaniac ideas and behind-the-scenes powerbrokering. Whether the games will be effective in salvaging the wreckage of Islam’s fight against itself remains to be seen.

August 20, 2013 5:32 pm

If one hates Jews, he hates Jesus Christ. If one hates Jesus Christ, his doom is sealed.
