Turkey's Ministry of Tourism has released figures that show the huge impact of the flotilla affair in May on Israeli tourism to the country. Only 2,605 Israelis visited Turkey in June 2010 compared with 27,289 in June 2009 - a fall of 90%.With that noted, how much tourism has Turkey lost from other parts of the world? Nobody with common sense should plunk their hard-earned money into Turkey's pockets. Americans planning overseas trips can divert their investments elsewhere, as can all Europeans and far easterners who understand the Islamic menace rising anew in Turkey.
Turkey's Ministry of Tourism also reported that the number of visitors from Israel in the first half of 2010 was down 22% to 75,071 from 91,450 in the corresponding period of 2009.
