    In his message #24, "Islamist" is accusing "Secular Turk" who wrote the message #22, of being a "Doenmeh". In Turkish, the word "Doenmeh" is used to denote an Ottoman group who converted from Judaism to Islam many centuries ago. But the word "Doenmeh" is often used as an insult, to imply "treason, not being a good Turk", etc. It seems that "Islamist" is using the word "Doenmeh" to denote the "Secular Turk" because he spoke against Islamic extremism or because Secular Turk is pro-Western. Chances are very high that Secular Turk does not have any Jewish ancestors (not "Doenmeh"), he is just in favor of secular democracy. "Islamist" correctly pointed out that the racist Europeans will not accept "Secular Turk" even if he is secular, and that for this reason Secular Turk should be loyal to Turkey... But loyalty to Turkey does not close the door to democracy. But if the Secular Turk is really a Doenmeh and if he has just a one Jewish grandparent, then Israel will give him citizenship.
