Jewish group wants Turkish PM to return award
A Jewish American group is asking Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to return an award it gave him in 2004, accusing the Turkish leader of "dangerous rhetoric" and "inciting violence against the Jewish people."

 

In an open letter to Erdogan Thursday, Mark Rosen, the chairman of the Jewish American Congress, said Erdogan had become "arguably the most virulent anti-Israel leader in the world."
