Mein Kampf Number One With a Bullet in Turkey

Maybe they got a less-threatening translation which speaks only of "boncentrantion bamps:"

Turkey's government Monday played down soaring sales of Adolf Hitler's anti-Semitic book "Mein Kampf" ("My Struggle") and said there were no racists in the large Muslim country.

You know what other country had no racists? Nazi Germany. David Irving says so.

Booksellers say "Mein Kampf," or "Kavgam" in Turkish, has featured among the top 10 bestsellers in the past two months, to the dismay of the country's small Jewish community and of the German embassy in Ankara.

...

"We have never had such an attitude in our culture, nor in our history, and we do not have it now ... It's not possible for people to choose their races ... Turkish society's idea about this issue is clear. There is no racism in this country," [said a government flack].

Of course not, darling. Just a lot of Turks who are really interested in Hitler's ideas about restructuring post-WWI reparations debt, I guess.

PS, the headline lied for effect. Mein Kampf is not, in fact, #1 on the bestseller list. Want to know what is?

The current No. 1 bestseller in Turkey, ahead of "Mein Kampf," is "Metal Storm," which depicts a U.S. invasion of the country. The Turkish hero avenges his homeland by destroying Washington with a nuclear device.

As ever, anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism: Perfect Together.
