This week's post will be shorter than normal, please bare with me….
Turkish Torque celebrates his 1000th post this week, congratulations! Ugur has translated an excellent article about how the media and entertainment world is destroying Turkish culture and comments on rumors of Muslim reformation. He also writes about the new political chess game being played by the Turkish Foreign Ministry and how it is reacting to the election of HAMAS in Palestine.
Talk Turkey writes about a future United States of Eurasia that has created quite an interesting conversation and comments about the new Kurdish judge to replace the other Kurdish judge to try Saddam Hussein.
A quite funny post from The Need to Know asks for the world to leave Iran alone, she wants a big bonus.
Zen in the Kitchen writes about onion and garlic helping you to remember your left from your right.
Mavi Boncuk returns with a post about Ataturk's adopted children. Snow is the subject of a post from Metroblogging:Istanbul and well as one from Erkan's Field Diary, well actually not just one post, but two and three.
Amerikan Turk wrote about the big snowstorm in Istanbul as well, but he also covered other items such as bedbug infestations, Turkish hostages in Iran-a story missed by the main stream media coverage, and (my personal favorite of the week) a piece about buzzword word games in office meetings.
Find of the week: We Are the TURKS, a new blog dedicated to interviewing and writing about prominent Turks in American business and culture.
