Turkish Youth in Holland: Hitler Should Have Killed All the Jews (video)

Korkut says that discussions of killing Jews is practically as common in Turkey as are discussions of killing rodents or invasive plants in other parts of the world.
Turkish Muslim immigrants in Holland

Turkish Muslim immigrants in Holland

A television interview of young Turkish Muslim immigrants eagerly discussing their hatred of Jews was aired in February on a television station in Holland. Dutch audiences did not initially react, but after the Finnish media site Tundra Tabloids put English subtitles on a video of it this week, people elsewhere have begun to take notice.

The video is one of an interview by a PhD student, Mehmet Sahin, with a group of Muslim Turkish immigrant high school boys.

Sahin’s goal is to determine how “indoctrinated” with hatred towards Jews (and others) Turkish immigrant youth are, and whether the indoctrination can be reversed.  Sahin is a student at VU university in Amsterdam.

The clip opens after the session has already begun. The topic is Anne Frank, and one boy says she was murdered in WWII.  Another one of the boys yells out: “No!  She died from Typhus after the war ended.”

Then a lanky red-haired boy smilingly shares the first of his many statements appreciative of Hitler’s goals, methods and success:

“I am satisfied with what Hitler did with the Jews.”

The interview is just over six minutes long, but a lot of hate is packed into those six minutes.

When pressed to give a reason for their hatred, the boys state as fact that Jews “killed millions of Palestinians in Gaza,” and that Jews “steal other people’s country.”

From a psychological perspective, it is fascinating to watch as one adult in the room tries to explain to the boys that Hitler wanted to kill the Jews because they “looked different,” and that “there were not many Muslims in Europe then, but otherwise…,” obviously shepherding them towards  identifying with the victims, rather than the villain.

No, the boys insist that “Hitler must have had a reason.”

Later on, the boys resist Sahin’s disbelief that they could be happy Hitler killed so many innocent victims.  Their challenge: “you don’t know if they were innocent.”   Sahin again tries to help them identify with the victims, explaining that “Hitler was very clear, that they [the Jews] didn’t match with the Aryan race.  That was their ‘fault.’” Again, the response: “Hitler must have had a reason to hate the Jews.”

Kenneth Sikorski, editor of Tundra Tabloids, wrote that after the interview aired on Dutch television, there was no response until a well known Dutch journalist, Alma Drayer, wrote in a column that she found it scandalous there had been no outrage.

According to Sikorski, Drayer wrote in the Dutch publication Trouw

if Dutch youngsters had said on television that it would have been a good thing had all Muslims been slaughtered, including little babies, there would have been massive reactions about how horrible this was.

Dutch pro-Muslim organizations would probably have organized a demonstration in which prominent leftists would also have marched.

She concluded that Jew hatred in the Netherlands is back where it had been before the Holocaust.

Ege Berk Korkut, a Turkish observer of the change in attitude by Turks towards Israel and the Jews, spoke with The Jewish Press about the escalating levels of anti-Semitism in Turkey today.

Korkut is from Izmir, the “most modern city in Turkey – extremely modern, women can walk on the streets safely at night, and very few of the people voted for Erdogan.” Korkut estimates that in Izmir, less than a majority of the people are anti-Semitic, but “in the rest of Turkey, the percentages are more like 80 percent.”

Korkut told The Jewish Press that he regularly hears people praise Hitler.  “Do not worry, Israel will be destroyed one day, and the day is near that all Jews will pay,” is also something he hears often.  He says that discussions of killing Jews is practically as common in Turkey as are discussions of killing rodents or invasive plants in other parts of the world.

Towards the end of the session with the Turkish Dutch immigrants, one boy matter of factly states: “I hate Jews.  I can’t get that thought out of my head. Period.”  He and the other boys admitted they don’t know any, but don’t see that as an obstacle to saying what they think about Jews.  “It’s freedom of speech,” they explain.

Sahin tells them he is positive he will succeed in getting that and similar thoughts out of their heads. But in response, the boys make a bet of 50 Euros (about $65) that Sahin will fail.  All the boys feel the same way, and make the same challenge to Sahin.  They shake his hand to seal the bet, confident that their hatred is unshakeable.

  5. yes well Holland has been invaded by muslims so far as the Dutch government has issued a warning to the muslim, either learn to speak Dutch and take on their customs or go home, as now some of their own citizens feel unwelcome in their own country. as for before the holocaust Holland had very little warning that Hitler was invading the country, though there were rumors.

    evil G_D hashem and the creation of that cancerous boil and venom of judaism is wrong… that evil Torah teaching of hate and inbreeding of talomudic venom is the norm for your evil kind.. Hitler's army has so many jews and that holoHOAX was a lie of your hasbara.. please make aliyah and we shall teach you too how to be number 1 in israHELL or abroad in diasporah.

  15. We are dealing with a barbarism on a level which is unfathomable to most westerners, except to those who are hard core leftists and Islamists to boot. Therefore, educating the public must be primary, and then plans to beat them back must become actionable – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/13/islam-blood-a-groundbreaking-policy-paper-contained-herein-the-world-stands-on-a-precipice-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki-109/.

    As to the proper Jewish response, well, something aligned within – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/03/an-authentic-jewish-response-to-an-anti-semitic-skit-at-the-oscars-what-lessons-can-be-learned-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

  20. Yehuda Alan says:

    You have to get over the why they hate. They just do. Now you need to think about what you are going to do to defend yourself in case they take it to the next level because they will if they get the chance to.

  21. He is not justifying, he is excusing… Instead of being terrified that muslims are nurturing next generations of people that will make peace impossible not only between Jews and palestinians, but between muslims and the rest of the world…

  22. In public? They are incouraged to do that, they get praised….
    How come Israel is being forced to make peace wilt likes of them?

  23. Shahram David Dadfarin says:

    all muslims are raised this way from childhood. their parents ,schools, media, society in muslim countries give a very bad picture to jews. in shiaite religion they are not allowed to have food while dos or jews are present and this has nothing to do with israel or politics its just their belief just like jews keeping the kashrut laws.

  24. boycott all turkish products.

  25. i hope you can accomplish this

  26. BOYCOTT ALL TURKISH PRODUCTS.

    These kids who are educated in Darwinist mindset (just like Hitler was educated).
    are no different than Hitler. The darwinist ideology teaches this silly superiority rubbishness to the humanity. Being superior than the other is not acceptable in Islam. "O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that yes may know each other (not that yes may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)." (Quran, 49:13).
    I recommend you to read this book: http://harunyahya.com/en/books/971/The-Disasters-Darwinism-Brought-To-Humanity.
    In the sight of God, people acquire superiority not according to their languages, race or gender, but according to their godliness. The existence of different races and nations is a cultural wealth, not a reason for war and conflict. But if we let schools to teach darwinist ideology which supports racism, then we have to be ready to face these kind of racist people more.

    not all Muslims, all people are raised this way from childhood. Because all schools teach darwinist ideology that teaches this silly "superiority rubbishness" to the humanity. Please read my post below:

  33. If you believe a Imam should not be invited to a holocaust program where he will walk out before Hatikvah speak out.

    http://www.aish.com/j/as/The_History_of_Hatikvah.html

    As it states,

    • The British Mandate government briefly banned its performance in 1919 due to Arab anti-Zionist political activity.

    • In 1944, Czech Jews spontaneously sang it at the entry to the Auschwitz-Birkenau gas chamber and, as reported by a member of the Sonderkommando, were beaten by SS guards.

    The link is clear, the Arabs were against Hatikvah before there was Israel or even before the myth of Palestinian people. Furthermore, Jews sang it while being led to their death. How dare anyone allow individuals to leave in protest during Hatikvah with the canard they are commemorating the Holocaust but against the State of Israel. Just keep quoting Dr Martin Luther King, Jr “When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You're talking anti-Semitism.” RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  34. Larry Roth says:

    The mistake many people make is they think Muslims are ordinary people. The Muslims from the MIddle East love only death and revenge. Be careful. They do NOT think like us and want to destroy our Western way (Freedom) of life.
