On September 21, an attempted stabbing took place at the Israeli Embassy in Ankara, Turkey, when a Muslim man armed with a knife tried to attack before being shot in the leg by a local police officer. According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, none of the Israelis at the embassy were involved or hurt in the incident.
Turkish police at the scene told Reuters the assailant shouted “Allahu Akbar” outside before he was shot.
The Turkish news site, Avlaremoz, which covers Jewish-related affairs, reported that many Turks rushed to Twitter to proudly and openly show off their Jew-hatred.
Here are some examples of what users wrote:
“We want to hear gunshots not outside, but inside of the Israeli Embassy.”
“Has anyone been croaked? This is what we want to learn.”
“[It will] Get even worse, the Israeli embassy.”
“A prostitute was asked: ‘Do you have children?’ The prostitute responded: ‘All of the population of Israel is my children.’”
“Suicide bombers always target innocent people. Just enter that Israeli embassy and explode it! What the hell is a knife?”
“They call the man who says ‘I did this to stop the bloodshed in the Middle East’ an ‘attacker’. He is the hero of the day. I think he is rational.”
