Turkish Man on Trial for Plot to Kill Orthodox Christian Leader, Rabbis (AP, Dec 22)

ANKARA, Turkey — A Turkish news agency says a court has released a man whom prosecutors accuse of plotting to murder Jewish rabbis and the Istanbul-based leader of the world’s Orthodox Christians.

The Anatolia agency says suspect Ismet Recber was freed pending the outcome of the trial following the first hearing Wednesday.

Recber, a carpenter, faces up to 15 years in prison if found guilty of plotting to kill Patriarch Bartholomew I. He denies the accusations.

Anatolia says the man was arrested after an anonymous letter was sent to authorities claiming that a suspect in a separate trial had chosen Recber to carry out the killings.

The separate trial involves an alleged secularist plot to bring down the Islam-oriented government.

See if you can get your mind about what this seems to mean. First, if anyone needs more proof that the war is, as it was in WWII, against Jews and Orthodox Christians, here’s a Turk that was trying to kill some of both. Just like the U.S. government would like to see done, at least to the Orthodox half of that group, in its war against Eastern Christians. (While helping ensure the same happens to the other half if only out of practicing realpolitik.)

All the while hoping, of course, that the Muslims doing our bidding — which is actually their own bidding — stay or become as little Islamicized as possible.

(I will again remind everyone that it was one WWII genocide that set a precedent for the other: Orthodox Christians being liquidated in Croatia with Vatican approval opened the door to Jews being liquidated on a wider scale with Vatican silence. The rest of the world — U.S., Latin America, Middle East and others — helped give the perpetrators a future. And that’s who’s been guiding policy for the Great Powers almost ever since.)

As for the last line: Unless there’s more to it, or unless it is awkwardly written and means something else, the only heads-or-tails I can make of it is that in the course of a plot by secularists to bring down the Islam-oriented government (a good thing, I’d say, and probably something U.S. policy-makers secretly support), these secularists didn’t mind being associated with, or being part of, a plan that — on the side — killed some rabbis and priests. After all, that works for secularists just fine — Turkish, European, or American.
