Twenty-three year old Stanislav Shmulevich
awaits arraignment on hate crime
charges for "criminal
mischief and aggravated harassment," accused of having hurled Korans into
toilets at Pace University‘s
Manhattan campus, 10
months ago. This past October 13, according to police, a teacher discovered a
paperback Koran in a second-floor bathroom toilet, while on November 21, a
student found another submerged Koran in the same bathroom.
The now disproven Guantanamo Bay Koran flushing incident of
May, 2005—reported errantly by Michael Isikoff, a veteran Newsweek
journalist?was a distressingly stupid spectacle, accompanied by a tragic
outcome—the loss of human life. Rioting which originated in Afghanistan,
spread throughout much of the Muslim world, from
mobs shouting "Protect our Holy Book!" burned down government buildings and
ransacked the offices of relief organizations in several Afghan provinces. This
senseless violence caused at least 15 deaths, and injured scores of others.

presents part one of a two part series. We will publish the conclusion
of "Under Turkish Rule" in next weekend’s edition August 3-5. –The
the plight of Jews under Turkish rule—past, including Ottoman
Palestine, and present—is profound. In lieu of serious, critical
examination one finds whitewashed apologetics concocted to promote
dubious geo-political strategies—even the morally bankrupt denial of
the Armenian genocide, as promoted, shamefully, by public intellectuals and major US Jewish organizations
who abet the exploitation of their co-religionist Turkish Jews as dhmmi "lobbyists" for the government of Turkey. These strategies have "succeeded", perversely, in further isolating Jews, while failing,
abysmally, to alter a virulently Antisemitic Turkish religious (i.e.,
Islamic), and secular culture—the latter perhaps best exemplified by
the wildly popular, and most expensive film ever made in Turkey, "Valley of the Wolves"
(released February, 2006) which features an American Jewish doctor
dismembering Iraqis brutally murdered by American soldiers in order to
harvest their organs for Jewish markets. Prime Minister Erdogan not only failed to condemn the film, he justified its production and popularity.
