Read "A Trap for Muslims" in Hurriyet Daily News on how Erdogan is inciting antisemitism. "Today, however, there is change on all fronts; a recent Infakto poll shows that 44 percent of Turks consider the United States the biggest threat to Turkey, while the number of people who have anti-Semitic views is rising dramatically. A 2008 Pew survey found that 76 percent of Turks surveyed had a negative view of Jews ? an increase from 49 percent in 2004. So why are the Turks suddenly spiteful towards the United States and Israel, Americans and Jews? Anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism are surging in Turkey for the first time in modern Turkey; the government is sanctioning these phenomena, driving them towards the mainstream of political life. This combination of anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism is not a coincidence. Islamist thinking on the matter easily allows for such sentiment: 'The Jews are evil, and so is Israel; Jews run America, and therefore the United States is also evil.'"
