    So apart from the OWS-like demonstrations and anti-Semitic responses to those demonstrations, what are Turkey’s actual economic / structural problems here?

      Jailing generals, journalists, etc. on charges generously described as ‘spurious,’ and the responses to aforementioned demonstrations including tear gas shot into hospitals where demonstrators were being treated.

      Cash-wise, Turkey is A-OK. Secular democracy, freedom of the press, and associated issues, not so much.

        “the responses to aforementioned demonstrations including tear gas shot into hospitals where demonstrators were being treated.”

        Oh, gosh! Why didn’t we think of that?

    Really, when is it *not* the Jews’ fault?
    (This was sarcasm.)
