A Turkish newspaper accused on Tuesday the “Jewish-family managed” New York Times of harboring a century-old bias against Turkey.

The Sabah newspaper tweeted a link to its article on the subject, with the teaser translating to, “Here’s the story of the Jewish family-managed New York Times’s 100-year hatred of Turkey.”

Sabah called the New York Times “scandalous” and accused the newspaper of incessantly bashing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan shortly before the latest Turkish elections, including calling the Turkish president a “tyrant.”

It said the paper’s bias dated back to the time of the final Ottoman sultan, Abdul Hamid II, whose autocratic rule ended during the Young Turk Revolution in 1908.

The article goes on to list the alleged bias’ manifestation in criticism of the former prime minister Adnan Menderes’ 1950’s government, and then the government of Halil Turgut Ozal, who was prime minister from 1989-1993.

In reality, the “Jewish” manager in question is Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., who became publisher in 1992 and chairman of the board in 1997, succeeding his father in both positions.

Sulzberger Jr.’s father was indeed Jewish, but his mother, Barbara Winslow, was mostly English and Scottish, which by more stringent Jewish standards would not make Sulzberger Jewish by birth. He was raised in his mother’s Episcopalian faith and later gave up the religion, according to New York Magazine.

    Once a Jew, always a Jew.

    The poor Sulzbergers and the other Jewish families who are probably anything but are still clumped together with their Jews.

    The Truks were once allies of Israel and now are their enemies.

    Once a Turk, always a Turk.

    May I humbly suggest that because Orthodox Jews are increasing as a percentage of American Jews, they should also increase their participation in pro-Israel organizations, to compensate for the declining numbers of non-Orthodox Jews.

    What nonsense Erdogan is now one of the top anti semites in the world, he is taking Turkey down the road to being a Islamist country, and away from the freedom of Kamal Attaurk, he is trying to make himself the new Calif of the Muslim world, its a wonder that the Turkish Nation is willing to follow his lead, they will regret it one day.

    Well, turks, if the shoe fits, you must convict. Turkish monsters committed genocide and terrible crimes against humanity. I despise turks and all muslims.
