(Ha'aretz) Yoav Stern - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday, "Unfortunately, the Israeli administration's current actions are increasing anti-Semitism in the world."

Israel is not fighting against stones but against the terror of suicide bombers, which has claimed the lives of some 1,000 Israelis over the past few years. Erdogan should address these facts when addressing the matter."
