My Mideast Punchlines: A bit of a turkey…

 

Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister has tied together a lot of standard anti-Semitic themes to explain his country’s anti-government protests. The Hurriyet daily writes:

Foreign powers and the Jewish diaspora have triggered the unrest in Turkey and worked effectively to boost it, says the minister, Besir Atalay.
