Turkey's PM Erdogan addresses members of parliament from ruling AK Party during meeting at Turkish parliament in Ankara

An association of Jewish Americans said Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has become the world’s “most virulent anti-Israeli leader” and demanded he return an award it gave him a decade ago, partly for his efforts to broker peace between Israel and Palestinians. The New York-based American Jewish Congress awarded Erdogan its “Profile of Courage” award in 2004 for what it said was his stance on fighting terrorism and working towards a peace. “Now, we want it back,” the association’s president, Jack Rosen, said in an open letter to Erdogan dated July 23 and made public on Thursday. He cited the Turkish leader’s comments last weekend that Israel had “surpassed Hitler in barbarism” through its attacks on Gaza.
