The recently -- and Putinesquely -- elected President Erdoğan likes to refer to his state as the "new Turkey," just as Atatürk and his Nazi admirers did. That by itself may not mean much, but the label signifies the same: a Turkey that radically breaks with what was before. Erdoğan can run and scream all he wants; he is Atatürk's kid.

The friend I was traveling with was frightened by it all and didn't want to go into the camp. She would wait for me near the infamous railway watchtower entrance where the tracks ended, near where Cecile, a woman I had worked with on her memoir, had waited for selection.

Harry Leibowitz

If the people of the Middle East stop funding and supporting these killers, then the rest of the world will surely stand by their side.

Robert Orlando | Posted 11.17.2014 | Entertainment
Robert Orlando
