A word from Amir, Dec. 12, 2017

Did the Turkish Sultan cross a red line and threaten to kill Jews?

The beginning of this story is in a speech that carried the Turkish President in front of hundreds of people, following the speech of Trump on Jerusalem being the capital of Israel!

During the speech, Erdogan claimed “whoever thinks they own Jerusalem knows very well, that tomorrow they won’t even be able to hide behind trees”.

So what did the Turkish Sultan mean? And why is it a threat to killing Jews? It’s important that we all understand the hidden meaning behind this expression .

Notice the last part of the sentence: they won’t be able to hide behind trees. This text is not trivial and is chosen carefully. This is the text that was taken from the Hadith (the oral Quran), and he is referring to the killing of Jews during the times of Muhammad.

This is the full part of the text, translated into English:

“Judgment day will not come until you are fight and kill them. The Jews are hiding behind stones and trees, but the stones and trees will be called: “O Muslim, o servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me come and kill him!”

Turkey- from an ally to a soon enemy of Israel! These are the days of Ezekiel!
