Almost all "analysts" from Europe but partly also from the USA unanimously put the blame for he "present" state of Turkey, connected to Turkish-Islamic ideology to other religions, unanimously on Erdogan ,which is a fatal error stemming from ignorance of modern Turkish history, and still more than half a century of massive Western propaganda on Turkey has signed on their ignorance but exclusively because of Turkey's membership in Western political-military institutions.
It is hardly believable that European and US experts really did not know Turkey's uncompromising and often inhumane attitude towards its minorities in other religions, from the founding of the Turkish "Republic" to the present. In order to understand the current policy of Erdogan against transatlantic civilization, it is enough to look at the modern history of this country and their discriminatory - persecution policy towards non-Islamic - non-Turkish minorities. And so let's take a look at the modern history of "modern secular Turkey" and now specifically the fate of the Jews in Turkey.
It will not be just one short article that can not include all the atrocities that Jews were exposed to in the "secular, democratic" Turkey, but I assure you that you will not regret what you are reading.
Chronologically First Years of the Republic, Ataturk Period:
January 1923 - Turkish newspapers and magazines in the then largest city of Turkey in Izmir publicly called for Turkish merchants to join in the fight against "immoral and benevolent Jewish dangers." These rabble rousing articles appeared on the front pages of the newspapers led by the government - that the Jews in Izmir but also throughout Turkey are "microbes nests" and therefore must be expelled as far as possible. Then the humorous Akbaba magazine started to provoke to attacks against the Jews and published a series of articles titled "Do you hear that you will not trade with the Jews, will we allow them to live with these microbes together?"
After a series of articles published in the Edirne newspaper, where the strong Jewish community was, and also in Passeeli, the people of Edirne gathered in the square and yelled hysterically:"It is time to expel the Jews from this land! Jews, go out!”
Massive attacks on Jewish shops followed after that, which the police did not even try to hinder, they remained a quiet spectator. Living in smaller towns became impossible for the Jews, so they had to leave all their property and flee to big cities like Istanbul - to run into "anonymity." In Trakia (the European part of Turkey), all Alyans Jewish schools have been closed overnight. The reason for this anger was obvious. The Armenians and Greeks were erased from Turkey, but the Jews, who were still much richer, were still there and "lived" there, according to Ataturk's secular Turkey, an unforgivable sin ...
"I will not beat about the bush, other religious minorities have nothing to do in Turkey, the Jews have not done any problems yet but you know that the Jews are like - they're going as they are being led, and there are more than thirty thousand of them in Istanbul. Of course, it would be better if they were not here... I say. "
June 1923 - When the mood of the "secular republic" was worked out everywhere, the application of long-desired monstrosities became easier. After the proclamation of the secular republic, Atatürk immediately began to release the Jews, Greeks and Armenians from the state administration and were replaced by "pure Turks with pure faith".
Freedom of the movement for Jews and other non-Islamic minorities in Anatolia was severely limited. The decision was so sudden that many people did not return to their cities because of the restrictions and had to stay where they were. The rabbinate did not even have the courage to ask the "democratic government" to abolish this ban. As if that was not enough, Jews were also forbidden to emigrate to Palestine. It was the reward for Jews to be a "seamless" minority, as the mysterious figure of Ataturk Riza Nur said in the Turkish Parliament on March 2, 1923.
December 1923 - The New Republic of Turkey attempted to enforce the deportation of Jews in Lausanne during the talks on Turkey's future scheme. The allies rejected it. Nevertheless, in December 1923, the Ataturk government ordered that several hundred Jews have to leave their city of Çorlu immediately, within 48 hours. In the following days, the same thing was decided in Çatalca and the decision was made immediately. The deportation and expulsion of Jews has already begun with the official decree and implementation of the secular state of the Republic of Turkey. It had been10 years before Hitler come to power!
