    Turkey has been officially making such statements every year on International Holocaust Remembrance Day . It is nothing new. Albeit, some would like to portray the contrary, there has never been an issue between the two countries about Israel's right to existence. Turkey has also never denied that the Holocast occured, unlike some. Turkey's official position has always been that it views anti-semetism as a Crime against humanity. As a Turk I am greatly hurt by some trying to politicize this FM statement by stating that it is a method of reapproachment used by Turkey. Can't some people get the point: WE HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH THE JEWISH OR ISRAELI PEOPLES, TO US THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT FROM OUR FELLOW TURKISH CITIZENS. WE RESPECT YOU AND YOUR COUNTRY. WE HAVE THE UTMOST RESPECT FOR YOUR RELIGION AND WE FIRMLY BELIEVE IN YOUR RIGHT TO STATEHOOD. HAVING BEEN FRIENDS FOR IN EXCESS OF 600 YEARS HOWEVER WE BELIEVE THAT WE ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT TO POINT OUT CERTAIN WRONGS DONE BY YOUR POLITICIANS
