Prominent Jewish couple murdered in Turkey
77-year old Jak Karako and his 69-year old wife Georgia HY"D (May God Avenge their blood) were murdered in their Istanbul apartment
Police found the bodies of Jak Karako, 77, and his wife, Georgia
Karako, 69, at their apartment in the city’s Ortaköy neighborhood.
It is unclear what the motive behind the killing was, but the
couple’s caretaker has fled and is considered a suspect in the murder,
according to the report. Police have surrounded the crime scene and are
in the process of questioning locals.
Let me guess... the housekeeper is a misguided adherent of the 'religion of peace'?
A source with knowledge of the community, who did not wish to be
named, told The Algemeiner, “There is some level of mistrust against the
government as a result on recent anti-Semitic incidents. Some believe
that the truth about the couple’s murder will never come out, but it
will be some manipulated version of what had happened.”
“There have been several reported murders of Turkish Jewish
businessmen throughout the past several years, but these incidents were
either never solved or were blamed on some small local disputes which
the community always looked at with suspicion,” the source said.
“Karako was one of the founders of Ören Bayan, the most famous yarn
brand in Turkey,” Hurriyet said. ”Famous actresses, like Türkan Şoray,
have played in the brand’s TV ads. Moiz Dana, the other co-founder, died
while travelling to the United States in 2009. The sons of Karako and
Dana had taken over the company from their father in the 1990s. The
families later sold the company due to financial troubles.”
Turkey's Daily Hurriyet reports that there are three suspects, two of whom were caught late Friday night
An Uzbek couple, who were suspected to have stabbed the Karakos, have
been detained at midnight after allegedly fled the crime scene following
Suspects reportedly confessed to murder in their
first statement to the police. "When we demanded our salaries that they
[the Karako couple] have not been paying for the past two months, they
said they would not pay anything, as they deducted the amount from the
damage we caused at their house," the 28-year-old suspect and his
27-year-old wife told the police.
A third suspect is apparently still at large but police have given no further details about him or her.
And in case you're wondering, 96.3% of the population of Uzbekistan is... you guessed it
. Jews, it's time to leave. Time to come home.
