Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia

In a strong show of solidarity, US President Bush and Turkish Premier Erdogan held a two hour meeting yesterday. Bush gave his support for Turkey's entry into the EU and praised Turkey for her help in the war on terror. However, after the meeting Erdogan was critical of US rhetoric in the war on terror - he said referring to Islamo-facists was offensive to many muslims and "In the same way we consider anti-semitism as a crime against humanity, Islamo-phobia is also a crime against humanity."
