Marchers in Istanbul: ‘Jew, don’t sleep, you’re next’

Channel 2 shows a clip of a march that took pace last night in what it says was a Jewish neighborhood of Istanbul.

The demonstrators, a few dozen in number, shout out, “Jew, don’t sleep, you’re next.” And that’s followed by, “Muslim, don’t sleep, preserve the unity of the Muslim nation.”

Turkey is marking three days of mourning for Gaza, and Turkey’s PM Erdogan has accused Israel of committing “genocide” in Gaza and compared the mentality of some elements in Israeli society to that of Adolf Hitler.
