Antisemitism In Turkish Media, Government, Mosques Continues To Rise; Turkish Governor Announces: 'With Great Hatred In My Heart,' The Grand Synagogue Now Undergoing Restoration Will Not Reopen For Worship But 'Will Become Only A Museum, With No Exhibits

As the MEMRI Turkish Media Project has shown (see Antisemitism Hits New High In Turkey: Threats Against Turkish Jews, Expressions Of Admiration For Hitler, Calls For Jews To Be Sent To Concentration Camps; Jews Should Pay A 'Special Tax') antisemitism continues to rise in Turkey, led by ruling AKP party and government officials. In a Friday sermon, an imam stated that, according to Allah, "the most rabid and savage enemies of Islam on earth are the Jews"; an AKP MP called the sermon a "magnificent speech" and promoted it on his Facebook page. Additionally, the governor of Edirne province, once a center of Turkish Jewish life, decreed, "with great hatred in my heart," that the province's Grand Synagogue, which is currently undergoing restoration, would not, as planned, be open to Jews as a house of worship, but would instead become "a museum with no exhibits."

Saudi Labor Ministry Denies Permitting Jews To Work In The Kingdom

On December 30, 2014, MEMRI reported on an article in the official Saudi daily Al-Watan that claimed that the Saudi authorities permitted people of all faiths, including Jews, to work in Saudi Arabia. The Al-Watan report was based on a form that appeared on the website of the Saudi Labor Ministry, which listed the permissible options for foreign workers' religions, including Zoroastrianism, Communism, Judaism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, and no religion.

The Al-Watan report sparked an uproar in the kingdom, especially on social media, and many people posted tweets with the hashtag "Permitting the Import Of Jewish Workers" in which they protested the decision or made sarcastic remarks about it. The Saudi online magazine 'Ajeleven reviewed articles in Israeli papers on the decision, and also mentioned that MEMRI had translated the Al-Watan report into English.[1]

In light of the public outcry, the authorities hurried to deny the Al-Watan report. The Labor Ministry amended the form on its website, removing the word "Jewish," and clarified that its inclusion in the form had been a meaningless technicality and should not be interpreted to mean that employing Jews was allowed. The Al-Watan daily, for its part, accused the Labor Ministry of trying to deceive the public by its denial, and claimed to have a recording in which a senior ministry official confirmed its claims on the matter. The daily also published an opinion piece by its columnist Musa'ad Al-'Osaimi in which he condemned the calls against the employment of non-Muslims, and especially of Jews, in the kingdom.

Antisemitism Hits New High In Turkey: Threats Against Turkish Jews, Expressions Of Admiration For Hitler, Calls For Jews To Be Sent To Concentration Camps; Jews Should Pay A 'Special Tax'

Antisemitic incitement by Turkish government officials, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's oft-repeated statements that Israel is more barbaric than Hitler, and antisemitic accusations and threats by the media that support and promote Turkey's AKP ruling party have fostered an upsurge in antisemitism in the country. A recent survey by Gonzo Insight, the Turkish polling institute, found that in just 24 hours, on July 17-18, 2014, 27,309 Turkish Twitter users sent 30,926 Turkish-language tweets in support of Hitler's genocide against the Jews.[1]

In addition to statements by government officials, the pro-AKP media regularly accuse Turkey's Jews of "treason,"[2] and other accusations are also levelled, including connecting Jews with the use of Ebola as a biological weapon in "global occupation" that "knows no borders"; in addition, a professor tweeted about sending Jews to Treblinka.
