TURKEY: PM Erdogan’s media water-carriers blame Soma mining accident which killed 300+ on the Jews!

So, what else is new? Below is the front page of Turkey’s Yeni Akit newspaper, where the headline says that the Soma mine owner’s son-in-law is a Jew. The story is that the Jewish-controlled media have distorted the disaster.


Anorak  (h/t Jack) Somas is Turkey’s worst-ever mine disaster. Over 300 people have lost their lives. Police and Government goons have met demonstrations with rubber bullets, tear gas, water cannon and well-heeled boot. The BBC says lawyers linked to Turkey’s opposition movement have been arrested.

The pro-government press continues to support Mr Erdogan [Turkey’s PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan].

Aksam prints on its front page a small photo of the prime minister formally shaking hands with a miner’s relative in the crowd. It is hard to see her face. But it may be that the startling photo of an Erdogan advisor appearing to kick a protester in Soma comes to symbolise what has happened here. To the prime minister’s opponents, the photo encapsulates their long-held complaints – about a privileged administration that treats dissent as treason.

The paper tells about the Jews beneath the headline It’s all a plot. It wasn’t about the ruling Government that bans twitter, quashes dissent and is seeking to Islamize the nation. It was the JEWS! Always the Jews. LOOK! It’s THEM…

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan made media headlines Thursday, after he screamed an anti-israel slur before sending his security forces to beat a protester. 

A Turkish citizen approached Erdogan and his security team as they visited Soma Thursday, in the wake of a catastrophic mining accident that killed nearly 300 people. Erdogan responded with anti-Semitic violence. 

“Why are you running away from me – Israeli sperm!” he shrieked, slapping the protester, in video footage uploaded to Sozcu TV. The word “sperm” is seen as a particularly offensive insult in Turkish. The footage later shows security forces beating the man.
