Turkey: Media claims press freedom report is part of Jewish/Israeli plot

Freedom House has said it notes with concern that some Turkish media outlets resorted to anti-Semitism in criticizing its recently released report. 
"Freedom House calls on the government of Turkey to join us in condemning the use of hate speech," a statement the Washington-based advocacy group said on Monday. 
Turkish pro-government daily Star said in its front page top story on Sunday that Freedom House received huge grants from businessman George Soros and Israeli lobby groups. It also emphasized that Freedom House President David Kramer is a Jew and a prominent neo-con. Other pro-government dailies, such as Yeni Akit, also tried to linked Freedom House to Israel in a bid to discredit the report.
