Muslim man of Turkey writes letter to Israeli rabbi apologizing for the hatred of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan

A Muslim man of Turkey, wrote a letter to an Israeli rabbi, apologizing for his country’s anti-Israel stance, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

Yahya Turk of west Istanbul, is a unique voice in the war-torn Middle East.

While Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, was calling Israel's operation in Gaza worse than the Nazis, Turk chose to contact the Israeli rabbi and express his support for Israel.

Writing to Rabbi Baruch Efrati, a resident of Efrat in Judea, Turk said: "I want you to know that I love Judaism and the Jewish people."

He does not mince words when relating to Turkey's prime minister: "In Turkey, we have a bastard prime minister, who has been rude to Israel, and I want to apologize to you for his words and actions. He is rude to us secular Turks too."

Turk heard about Rabbi Efrati, when he read an article on YnetNews, where the rabbi described the Islamization of Europe as a positive development because of the religion's moral values.

"I was amazed and pleased that a rabbi would call the Islamization of Europe a good thing. Likewise, I believe that an all Jewish Europe would be a great thing too," Turk told the Tazpit News Agency. "I showed the article to my family and they all fell in love with him."

His drive to write the letter was the advent of violent Islamism in the Middle East: "I felt a desire after seeing the horrors ISIS is committing in Iraq and Syria, along with years of negative media coverage on Muslims that I had to speak up, and Rabbi Efrati was the one to contact."

Turk expressed anger at radical Islam, for giving Islam a bad name, as "they don't talk for us, only their own terrorist groups."

Raised in what he defined as a typical secular Muslim middle class family in Istanbul, where he was taught that the greatest Turk ever was Ataturk and that Secularism is the only way forward for Turks, Turk looks back at that period as better times: "Remember that the Ottoman Empire saved Jews from the idol worshipping Christians and again in World War Two, taking in refugees. Our eternal Leader Ataturk, praised the Jews, and I love you and your people."

Concluding his message, Turk calls for the Muslims and Jews to unite: "Us God-fearing Muslims and Jews, should unite because the God of Abraham is our one true God."

Responding to his extraordinarily warm words, Rabbi Efrati wrote that he was "glad to read Turk's words" and noted the unique historical period in which he and Turk are currently living in: "We live together in a world that seeks a deeper identity, meaning and spiritual direction. The wars you mentioned are part of that search. The creator allows it in order to give to the world a free will, to find the truth and right on its own. We should not lose hope, everything is part of a great progress towards the light and the truth, led by God, and the wars and difficulties are part of this long journey."

Relating to Erdogan, Efrati writes: "It is indeed a shame that a great part of Turkey disconnects the heritage of this honest man [Ataturk], and connects to radical Islamic fundamentalism. I'm glad to hear that you oppose the prime minister of your country, who is anti-Semitic, narrow-minded, and does not represent at all the cultural orientation of Ataturk."

Concluding with words of friendship, Rabbi Efrati states:" These days, we are fighting for our right to live as free people in our land. We do not stand alone, with us are many people like you, who support our righteous cause. Together we will win the darkness and illuminate light of faith and hope."

Israel focuses on internal tourism after number of foreign tourists entering country falls 21%

The number of foreign tourists entering Israel, fell sharply due to the conflict with Gaza, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

Operation Protective Edge has generated various financial challenges for Israel's economy, as activity slowed down during the operation and the costs of the military campaign will weigh heavily on Israel's upcoming annual budget.

One of Israel's most known financial segments, tourism, has taken a big hit as a result of the operation. According to data presented by the Tourism Ministry, tourist entries were down by 21% during July, the height of the season in Israel.

According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, 218,000 visitor entries were recorded in July 2014. This number is lower than all the July statistics from 2008 to 2013.

Nearly all European countries have issued travel warnings, advising their citizens to stay at least 40 kilometers away from Gaza, the range most vulnerable to Hamas rocket attacks, as well as from the Judea and Samaria and the Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem.

The United States also issued several travel warnings urging U.S. citizens to be cautious and avoid “areas of unrest.”

The Ministry points out that thanks to the momentum in tourism since the beginning of 2014 up to Operation Protective Edge, a positive trend remains on a year over year basis. From January to July 2014, 1.9 million tourists entered Israel, 13% more than the same period in 2013, 12% more than 2012, and 15% more than 2011.

Tourism Minister Dr. Uzi Landau stated: "Israel is preparing for the day after. The Tourism Ministry is planning to invest in marketing campaigns in target countries around the world in order to encourage incoming tourism."

The Ministry has already launched a broadly publicized campaign in Israel to encourage internal tourism.
