Diario Judío México - The most concerning development in the current crisis between and is the joint statement condemning from President ’s ruling Islamist party and the opposition Republican People’s Party. At the height of the presidential campaign for the early elections that Erdogan forced on his country, it appears an anti- political consensus has been reached that is completely unrelated to the violent events Hamas has been instigating on ’s border with the Gaza Strip.

Through the joint statement, the secular opposition party sought to prevent Erdogan from using anti-Semitic incitement against as a campaign tool, as he has done in past Turkish elections. Thanks to Erdogan’s efforts, a majority of Turks no longer see as an ally but as an arch enemy.

Until now, had for strategic purposes sought to maintain ties with in the hope that once Erdogan was no longer in power, the old alliance could be rebuilt. But the systematic and consistent damage Erdogan has caused during his many years as ’s leader is absolute. His hatred of goes beyond populist opportunism and deep-seated religious animosity. By exploiting the widespread popular belief in in conspiracy theories according to which the descendants of the Sabbateans are secretly working to take over or destroy , Erdogan has made anti-Semitism his country’s official policy.

If a political alternative ever comes to power, it will not be able to undo the damage Erdogan has caused. Moreover, it will in all likelihood preserve his hostile approach to Israel and the Jews in order to establish legitimacy in the eyes of the people.

Israel needs to wake up: We have lost and we must act accordingly. Israel must correct a terrible historical injustice and formally recognize the mass genocide of the Armenian people by the Turks in World War I. Israel must also do everything in its power to promote the idea of the establishment of an independent Kurdish state outside of northern Iraq, which has become something of an Iranian protectorate.  Finally, Israel must act in the international arena to isolate as long as it under the totalitarian-democratic rule of Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party.

If Ankara does see regime change, the new Turkish government will need to prove it is different from its predecessor. Israel has catered to ’s whims for far too long. If the Turks are interested in bilateral ties, they can pursue us.
