A medal for you, Jim

Turkish generals will be happy to give you a medal for making baseless claims!

Muslims are enjoined to protect the Jews & Christians! That's why when the Jews were being beheaded and burned alive at the discretion of the Inquisitors in Spain, the Supreme Ruler of Islam welcomed the Jews by the boatloads to Istanbul & helped them settle into a life of peace and prosperity in the Ottoman Empire free from any harassment. And there is no compulsion –forced conversion in Islam. Is it Muhammad's fault if some self-styled "Muslims" do not adhere to his teachings? Surely not!

You should support democracy in Turkey and all other countries, because it is the fundamental right of people to liberate themselves from tyrants of this world –and democracy enhances everyone's security.

"What to do?", you ask: Easy!

Firstly, resolve to engage your brain before opening your mouth –or hitting your keyboard- and always look for evidence for the claims you are about to make. Then, change your prism of looking at everything from Israel's security concern, because it is the biggest fraud perpetrated against the American taxpayer. Halt! Before you accuse me of being an anti-Semite, beware I am summarizing the views of a Jewish professor at Michigan University.

Israel is most secure, in fact, so secure that it can afford to treat the visiting US vice president like a clown. Israeli leaders know that Obama & Biden are here today, gone tomorrow, but the Israeli lobby which has successfully hijacked & directs the US foreign policy as it siphons off American wealth will be around for decades to come! So rest assured, even the Islamic Republic of Turkey –which you seem to fear so much- will not pose the slightest threat, just as Pakistan with the BIG bomb is no threat. On the other hand, Turkish generals can easily take offence at something petulant and become very, very hostile to Israel. Also please note the historical fact that Iran has not attacked another country in the last two hundred years. Can you say the same thing for Israel or the US?
