Well done to the NRL and both teams on such an excellent Anzac commemoration for the Anzac Round - BZ to the @Australian_Navy in support
Great to see two traditional clubs squaring off in the #ANZAC round and it being this attacking and competitive. #NRLTigersSouths
Outstanding first half. Tenacious defence and expansive attack. Great stuff. #NRLTigersSouths

Day 9 of #TurkeyJewishRoadtrip:

Ayvalık/Troy/Çanakkale/Dardanelles Strait

Waking tp to the view of the Agean sea and #Cunda was quite amazing - not to say pretty relaxing... We are going to Çanakkale!
Last night me and Chaim were walking in Ayvalık - a coffee shop owner noticing the Kipah on Chaim's head walks over:

- "Are you guys Jewish by any chance?" - "Of course!" we say.
- "Let's have coffee, its on me. Last year I got stuck in Israel for 8 months during the pandemic."
He was excited to see Jews walking on the streets of his hometown, and is planning on opening an identical coffee shop in Tel Aviv...

Leave a comment if you prefer the Sunset over Sunrise...

Back to Çanakkale...

Anzacs from both wars feature in forgotten 'treasure trove' of historic photos.
#Australia discovers the Library of Congress collection. Good on ya!… via @abcnews
.@abcnews #AnzacDay "forgotten trove of historic pics."
This pic of an Australian snow ball fight on #Jerusalem's Jaffa Road 1942 is one of my favorites.

BTW, I suspect American Colony pics of Turkish army in Beersheba in WWI provided key intel to British/ANZAC troops. Image
This pic of an #ANZAC ANZAC Digger at the Western Wall in WWI has to be one of my favorites. It was colourized in Australia in the 1920s.

President #Erdogan’s words were unfortunately taken out of context. He was responding to the so-called ‘manifesto’ of the terrorist who killed 50 innocent Muslims in Christchurch, NewZealand. Turks have always been the most welcoming & gracious hosts to their #Anzac visitors.
The terrorist’s manifesto not only targeted Erdogan himself but also the Turkish people and the Turkish state. As he was giving the speech at the Canakkale (Gallipoli) commemoration, he framed his remarks in a historical context of attacks against Turkey, past and present.
Within the context of what I explained below, here is the translation of what @rt_erdogan actually said: ImageImage
