The Turkish President Recep sure does say a lot about Jews.
Strange he’s allowed to do that without there being more pressure on his country, no?
With legislative elections fast approaching in Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan lashed out at foreign media on Saturday, accusing The New York Times of being represented by “Jewish capital,” according to AFP.
Erdogan has repeatedly criticized foreign media outlets which expressed concern over the corrosion of freedom of expression in Turkey.
Erdogan accused the Times of campaigning against Turkey’s leader since the final days of the Ottoman Empire, and accused “Jewish capital” of being its patrons .
That isn’t so much an accusation as it is a statement of known fact. Next he’s going to accuse the sky of being blue, perhaps.
But what exactly does it mean coming from this guy? Not much, I’d reckon.
