Jewish New Year inspires Erdogan to stress tolerance

Ankara—President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has highlighted the guaranteed right of all Turkish citizens to live in accordance with their faith in his special message to mark the Jewish community’s New Year, or Rosh Hashanah.
“We believe it is the fundamental right of all our citizens to live in accordance with their own culture, religion and tradition freely,” Erdogan said in a message released Monday.
He said Turkey cared deeply about all its citizens living together in peace without any regard to their religion, language, race, faith and ethnicity.
