Well, the best material for what you call "racist antiturkish propaganda" is lavishly provided by Turks themselves. You can find the barbarian, the paranoid, the pathological, the grotesque almost everywhere in Turkey if only you look closely enough and use your brain according to its original purpose - to find out the truth. I have reported a few such examples e.g. here or here. But a recent story from May 2012 I have just come across tops all I have ever heard of - a Bee-Eater bird unmasked as a Mossad spy by Turks !
The story reads like a passage from Aristophanes' comedy ( he wrote "The Birds" incidentally;) , even though it is no comedy at all !
"Turkish authorities believe that they have found a bird used for espionage purposes by Israel, the country's media reported.
Turkish authorities believe that they have found a bird used for espionage purposes by Israel, the country's media reported.
According to a Tuesday report in Yedioth Ahronoth, an investigation to that effect was launched in Ankara several days ago, after a farmer discovered a dead Merops Apiaster, commonly known as the European Bee-Eater, in his field. The bird had a ring reading "Israel" on one of its legs.
The bird-beak in question reportedly sported "unusually large nostrils," which – combined with the identification ring – raised suspicions that the bird was "implanted with a surveillance device" and that it arrived in Turkey as part of an espionage mission.
The bird's remains were originally handed over to the Turkish Agriculture Ministry, which then turned them over to Ankara's security services". :)
As one reader aptly commented on that 'And ..."Erdogan has a Mossad transmitter implanted you know where..." '
