Turkey caves in to activist demands to boycott Israel

ISTANBUL, Oct. 13 (Reuters) -- Turkey's Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay said today that his ministry's computers were flooded with e-mails from activists worldwide demanding that Turkey pull out of the upcoming OECD conference on tourism in Jerusalem. Following meetings with the Turkish ambassador to the United States, Haithem El-Zabri, a key organizer of the campaign to pressure Turkey said, "Turkey has been at the forefront of solidarity of Gaza, and we have campaigned relentlessly to make sure they stay on this path." Prime Minster Recep Tayyip Erdogan confirmed that his government will be discussing a complete boycott of Israel until the siege of Gaza is lifted. full story
