B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:

B’nai B’rith is outraged over the comments reportedly made by Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay, who blamed the Jewish Diaspora for the recent anti-government protests in Istanbul and other cities across Turkey.

Atalay’s accusation is, of course baseless and was an attempt at shifting the blame from the government’s inability to hold itself accountable.

These kinds of statements are unacceptable, especially from government leaders.
