As a slap to the Zionist entity - Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) has selected a promising young Jewish songwriter and singer, Can Bonomo (born 1987), to represent his country at the 57th Eurovision Song Contest 2012. The contest is being held on May 22-26 in Baku, Azerbaijan. Singers from 43 countries are expected to participate in the event.
Can Bonomo lives in Istanbul but was born in Izmir, the town famous for birth place of the most prominent Jewish Messiah, Rabbi Shabbetai Zevi. Many of Turkish politicians, businessmen and Kemalist military generals have been secret followers of Shabbetai Zevi – known as the ‘Crypto-Jews (Donmeh)’. Turkey is home to 130,000 Jews and world’s largest community of Donmeh. This was the major reason for Ankara’s long love affair with Tel Aviv.
Wayne Madsen in an article published in October 2011 – claimed that most of conflicts in Muslim world are created by the powerful Donmeh communities.
“There is a historical “eight hundred pound gorilla” lurking in the background of almost every serious military and diplomatic incident involving Israel, Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Greece, Armenia, the Kurds, the Assyrians, and some other players in the Middle East and southeastern Europe. It is a factor that is generally only whispered about at diplomatic receptions, news conferences, and think tank sessions due to the explosiveness and controversial nature of the subject. And it is the secretiveness attached to the subject that has been the reason for so much misunderstanding about the current breakdown in relations between Israel and Turkey, a growing warming of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and increasing enmity between Saudi Arabia and Iran…”
Turkish female singer, Sertab Erener, beat contestants from 26 states including Israel at the 48th Eurovision Song Contest 2003 in Latvia with her song “Every Way That I Can…” Watch video below.
Baku has very close relations with Tel Aviv. Both Benji Netanyahu and Shimon Peres have visited Baku. There are over 50,000 Azeri Jews in Israel. Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Baku in 2010. Azerbaijan is a Shia-Muslim majority country.
Eurovision, originally conceived as a means of unifying a war-torn Europe, was arguably the most visible symbol of European unity prior to the European Union. In keeping with political trends, the former Eastern bloc countries were invited to join the contest shortly after the breakup of the Soviet Union.
