Worker Committees not Returning to Turkey


Large worker committees made it clear, Thursday, that they would not be changing their plans and scheduling group trips to Turkey, despite the just-announced improvement in relations between the governments in Jerusalem and Ankara.

A survey by the committee association, which compiles information about their socio-economic activities, indicates that 75-percent of the large committees feel it's still too early to take back the tourist boycott of Turkey. They also felt hatred for Israel on the Turkish street will not disappear overnight.
