TURK­ISH TOSH

The Jewish Chronicle - - ARTS&BOOKS -

WHO IS be­hind the drive to turn Turkey from a sec­u­lar into an Is­lamic state? Al Qaeda? The Turk­ish AKP party? Don’t be ridicu­lous: it is of course “global Zion­ism”. That, at least, is what Turk­ish writer Ergün Poyraz ar­gues in his book, The Chil­dren of Moses. Poyraz claims, in­ter alia, that Turk­ish PM Tayyip Er­do­gan is a crypto-Jew. The book is be­ing sold along­side the work of the dis­tin­guished Turk­ish writer Orhan Pa­muk, ac­cord­ing to the Wash­ing­ton Post. Ac­cord­ing to its pub­lish­ers, The Chil­dren of Moses has sold over 500,000 copies. One as­sumes they share the same delu­sional symp­toms as their au­thor.
