Turkey removes anti-Semitic article
An article rife with anti-Semitic commentary was removed from the website of Turkey's ruling party Friday after receiving brief exposure, the country's Hurriyet News reported.
Another paper, the Radikal Gazetesi, featured printed screens proving the article had been posted on the Justice and Development Party (AKP)'s internet site under the heading: 'The Promised Land – Palestine'.
In the piece, Jews were dubbed "a swarm of grasshoppers" among other derogatory terms. It also denied the Holocaust had happened.
The author of the piece, who remains unnamed, claimed that a number of Adolf Hitler's closest associates were Jews.
