Reader comment on item: Turkey in Cyprus vs. Israel in Gaza

Submitted by yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Jan 16, 2011 at 01:07

Tayip Erdogan sees himself as the beginning of the resurgence of the Islamo-Turkish Khaliphate. Under Islamic rule the Dhimmis must ask the ruler humbly to practice their Dhimmi faith and this priest, living under Islamic rule, neglected to do that the night before Xmas.

People seem to forget that when Jerusalem and the Wailing Wall were under "benign" Jordanian Hashemite Arab rule Jews were banned form Jerusalem to say nought of practiticing their faith. And that is the reality Barack Hussien Obama is aspiring to in the future Palestinian State governing the paratitioned Jerusalem.
