You say Zionists love Ataturk ? What a comedy of errors! ; ) They love the man who admired and was admired by Hitler, who showed what he really thought of Jews by inventing a hundred petty ways to hinder, discriminate and oppress them in Turkey , who in order to get rid of the Jews in Thrace staged his notorious anti-Jewish pogroms in the summer of 1934!

As one author writes about them : "Menacing letters were received, Jews were physically beaten and their shops were boycotted...Thousands of panic-stricken Jews fled to Istanbul. An official statement spoke of 3000 refugess, comprising about a quarter of the 13,000 Jews in Eastern Thrace and the adjacent Anakkale district, though the real number may have been even higher."

If this is no good imitation of early Nazi pogroms, then what is ? But you say Zionists love Ataturk... I begin to be also worried if Zionists are still in their senses.

Submitting....
