Trump and Turkey are now mass murderers that need to be stopped immediately

This is what dictators do when their reign is in danger: They start a war with a foreign power. The people then pull together and forget the internal hostility of their own tyrant.

Trump can’t start a war to distract from his Ukraine scandal that is knocking his throne off balance. So he led Turkey to war. Turkey wasted no time. Apparently, its plans were ready long before the US permission.

I won’t quote Trump here on any of this because everything he says is a lie and showing he’s lying is giving too much credit to his constant stream of assaults on the simple straightforward holy truth.

I will quote Trump on one thing to show how immoral he is. He justified his betrayal by saying: The Kurds are not fighting alongside us in a war we want; they’re just fighting to have their own State. Israel beware!

For people who are still stunned by this action by Trump, I know the type from too close-by and can tell you: it’s not that he doesn’t understand (is uninformed or stupid); he doesn’t care.

Trump caused this:
* He gave Turkey permission to slaughter the Kurdish US allies.
* Leaving the Kurds no choice but to seek support from Trump’s friends instead: the Russians. Americans beware.
* More Russian presence brings Iranian presence to the border with Israel. Israel is very aware — and as always prepared. No one has called Netanyahu naive yet.
* Turkey said to Europe: if you oppose us, we’ll let the millions of Syrian refugees into Europe.
* Turkey wants to kill off the Kurdish army, remove all Kurds (kill or chase them away) and put its Syrian refugees on the cleared land.
* Two thousand jailed ISIS terrorists were jailed by the Kurds; there is a chance that they’ll now escape and regroup, revive ISIS.
* Israel got a clear picture of how much they could rely on the US under its most loyal ally president (not at all). If the Kurds’ national ambition can be betrayed, so can theirs.
* Worldwide media, public, and government protests.

This is different from the Holocaust in that:
The news is not hidden and travels around the world very fast.
Many, including in the US, are disgusted and protesting.

Similarities with the Holocaust:
No effective thing has been done yet to stop this. Will the Security Council of the UN spring into action? Where is Europe? Words of disapproval or condemnation and symbolic long-term actions are not effective enough. We don’t want to execute Turkey’s despot Erdogan for crimes against humanity — we want to stop him.
How is this reckless, murderous action from Trump not enough to remove him from office? The whole of the German People became guilty of Hitler’s monstrosities because they supported him. As long as the US doe not remove Trump, all Americans are collectively guilty of all of the above. And that besides, that not correcting this makes the US an unreliable ally for every nation.

I want this to happen:
Turkey can and must be stopped today. Remember: the Turks are experienced in swift genocide in days or weeks to complete.
Immediate removal of Trump from office and revoking this permission to Turkey.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
