To: Lazman you said:

"I believe you too know there are more similarities than contrasts between the two countries."

Turkish press. Yasin Aktay of Yeni Safak, a popular figure on the talk-show circuit, writes: "Israel is contrary to logic, to human rights and to democracy." Ali BulaƧ, a columnist for Zaman, describes Gaza as "a concentration camp that in reality surpasses the Nazis camps". In Ortadogu, Selcuk Duzgun warns: "We are surrounded. Wherever we look we see traitors. Wherever we turn we see impure, false converts. Whichever stone you turn over, there is a Jew under it. And we keep thinking to ourselves: Hitler did not do enough to these Jews." Abdurrahim KarakoƧ of Vakit adds: "It is impossible not to admire the foresight of Adolf Hitler...Hitler foresaw what would happen these days. He cleansed off these swindler Jews, who believe in racism for a religion and take pleasure in bathing the world in blood, because he knew that they would become a big a curse for the world...The second man with foresight is evidently Osama bin Laden...It was Hitler yesterday, and it is Osama bin Laden today.

You don't see this kind of hatred in Israeli newspapers.
