Arkadaşlarım, Türkiye Bitti!

In Turkish this phrase means "My friends, Turkey is through!"

This is an overstatement; it would be more proper to say that Turkey's role as an ally of Israel is over. Unfortunately Turkey's strong sentiments against Israel are not confined to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan; they are quite wide spread.

In the popular program, Ayrılık (Farewell) Israeli soldiers are portrayed as savages who take pleasure in murdering Arab babies and raping Arab women.

The action film, Kurtlar Vadisi: Irak (Valley of the Wolves: Iraq), features a Jewish doctor who removes and sells organs from injured civilians. FYI, the doctor is played by Garey Busey, who is now on my sh*t head list.

And the upcoming film, Kurtlar Vadisi: Filistin (Valley of the Wolves: Palestine) has a scene in which a Turkish commando kills the Israeli Ambassador.

And more menacing is the growth of political Islam in Turkey, which has only been held in check by pressure from Turkey's staunchly secular military establishment...stay tuned for more bad news.
