Turks burning Barbie and Spiderman dolls

PanARMENIAN.Net - Cinemas screening American films are closed in Istanbul. To protest adoption of the Armenian Genocide Resolution by the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee dozens of McDonalds employees did not appear at work.

Besides, Turkey threatens to restrict the U.S. use of Incirlik base and seems to neglect Washington's warning against intrusion into Northern Iraq.

An address of the Turkish authorities to the nation was read in Istanbul streets. Speaking to CNN-Turk, PM Erdogan said "the U.S. Congressmen are not entitled to rewrite history." "Parliamentarians are called to normalize relations and care about future but not past. Turkey has been a U.S. ally in the region for 50 years. I do not see a reason for undermining these relations," he said.

Students and trade companies' employees are holding pickets at the U.S. Consulate building in Ankara shouting out anti-American slogans. Turkey is launching a campaign in "defense of national dignity." Protestors call to break off relations with the U.S., to boycott American goods.

Turkish media reports that dozens of American toys, including Barbie and Spiderman dolls, were burnt in a shop in southeast of the country, the RFE/RL reports.
