ICYMI: Morning Roundup

Tory Jew Scum! Aaron Porter, member of the British Labour Party and president of the National Union of Students was attacked by an angry mob at a student fee protest in Manchester.

New Turkish action movie is labeled anti-Semitic. With the Gaza flotilla fresh in the memory of both Israel and Turkey, a new spy film throws more fuel on the fire. It starts with an Israeli raid on an aid ship and revolves around a Turkish commando unit going to Israel to kill the commander responsible for the raid. The fact that it was released on Holocaust Remembrance Day probably didn’t help.
