Abraham Foxman, national directer Israel lobby group, Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has described a Turkish TV shamooo advertisement with archive footage of Adolf Hitler, as repulsive and an insult to the 140,000-strong Turkish Jewish community. On March 23, in a letter to Ankara’s ambassador in Washington, Namik Tan, he demanded that the advertisement should be removed. “There can never be a justifiable purpose for using the images of Hitler, Nazis or any other depiction of the Nazi killing machine to sell product or service,” wrote Abe Foxman.
I suggest Abe Foxman should study Canadian Rabbi Wolf Gunther Plaut’s (d. 2012) book ‘The Man Who Would Be Messiah’ in which he claimed that Frankist Jews were behind the murders of millions of Christians, Gypsies and Jews under Adolf Hiter’s regime.
The Turkish cosmetics company Biomen came up with the controversial TV advertisement to sell shampoo for men. The ads with archive footage of Adolf Hitler and a vioce in background in Turkish calling on men to buy the shampoo.
“If you’re not wearing women’s clothes, then you should not be using women’s shampoo. Here it is. A real men’s shampoo, Biomen,” the vioceover says. Watch video below.
Till a few years ago, Abraham Foxman had very close relationship with Turkey’s AKP ruling party. In 2005, he honored Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan with ADL’s highest award for Kemalist regime’s saving 100,000 European Jews from Nazis. Later, Abe Foxman leaned on US lawmakers to vote against the Armenian Genocide bill on request from Ankara.
Last November, Abe Foxman, forced Mumbai-based Zee TV, to drop the title of its television soap opera, Hitler Didi. It’s now run as ‘General Didi’. Earlier the same year, Bollywood director Rakesh Ranjan Kumar angered the Israelis by announcing his intention to produce a movie honoring Adolf Hitler, named ‘Dear Friend Hitler‘. The movie’s screenwriter, Nalin Singh, took the movie’s name ‘Dear Friend Hitler‘ from the two letters Mahatma Gandhi wrote to the Adolf Hitler before WW II broke out in which he referred the German Chancellor as “My dear friend”, before pleading with him to avoid the war. Gandhi, though, was against the partition of Palestine to create a homeland to solve Europe’s centuries-old ‘Jewish Problem’ – was in love with Jewish gay Dr. Hermann Kallenbach, a German Jewish bodybuilder and architect in South Africa.
