News the HP Doesn't Cover: Turk Blames Jews for Protests

This was breaking news yesterday, but I wanted to give the Huffington Post the chance to pick it up. It of course did not.

"Deputy Turkish Prime Minister Besir Atalay accused the “Jewish Diaspora” and other foreign agents of orchestrating recent unrest that has rocked Istanbul and other cities.
Atalay made the comments during a visit to the Central Anatolian province of Kırıkkale on Monday.
“There are some circles that are jealous of Turkey’s growth,” Atalay said, according to a report from the Hurriyet Daily News. “They are all uniting, on one side the Jewish Diaspora. You saw the foreign media’s attitude during the Gezi Park incidents; they bought it and started broadcasting immediately, without doing an evaluation of the [case].”"
Too bad he didn't say "Zionists" otherwise he might have gotten 1,000 comments of support on the Huffington Post. Or maybe he would have anyway.
