Mainstream Newspapers in Turkey: 3 Really interesting articles!

Reader comment on item: Turkish-Iranian Rivalry on the Rise

Submitted by Jack Ojalvo (France), Aug 27, 2011 at 15:41

I started reading your news long before you joined our beloved Stanford network and can say that I was a big fan back from the Jerusalem Post days.

As a jew who grew up in Turkey and a person who is relatively well versed on the subject, I believe understand the turkish politics fairly well. Iran & Turkey are definitely on a collision course and have been so since a while to say the least. (and long ago as you mentioned)

The interesting part is this rivalry / discord started revealing its face to the mass media now! Since the last couple of months we started reading ambivalent reports on Iran and recently a backlash from the media literally blaming and insulting Iran!

Major newspapers (Some filled with pro AKP government supporters) started pointing Iran by the finger.

Milliyet and Hurriyet the 2 most read newspapers both published articles on this. Dunya the (WSJ-like deeply rooted newspaper of Turkey) also published a piece on this today as well!

Please let me know if you need any help with the Turkish translation, I will be more than happy to help.

Best regards, and thanks for the article
