Turkish film in anti-Semitism row

Film portraying Turkish operation to avenge Israeli raid on Mavi Marmara courts controversy.


    'Valley of the Wolves -- Palestine', the latest in a wildly popular series of Turkish action films, has been criticised as being anti-Semitic.

    In it three Turkish special forces operatives shoot their way through Jerusalem and the West Bank to avenge the real-life Israeli attack on the Mavi Marmara ship last May, that left nine Turks dead.
