Two Top Turkish Bestsellers
Mein Kampf, and A Novel About
Islamic Nuclear Terror Against U.S.

Mr. Fjordman has become my favorite European blogger of late. Fjordman:

Burak Turna's previous book, about a Turkish hero who destroys Washington DC with a nuclear device, was the only book to beat Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" on the bestseller list in Turkey.

Of course, Turkey is a beacon of Islamic modernism, and all its close to 80 million inhabitants should be allowed to join the 15 to 20 million Muslims already in the EU. The problems we have with 20 million Muslims will disappear as soon as we get 100 million Muslims. Our leaders tell us so, so it must be true:

Turkey Shrugs Off Success of Hitler's 'Mein Kampf'

The current No. 1 bestseller in Turkey, ahead of "Mein Kampf," is "Metal Storm," which depicts a U.S. invasion of the country. The Turkish hero avenges his homeland by destroying Washington with a nuclear device.

Burak Turna, who has developed a large following in Turkey, hit the bookstands this month with his second political fiction, "Third World War," which is about a clash of civilizations. His first book, "Metal Storm," co-authored by Orkun U├žar, describing a Turkish-U.S. war sparked after an assault on Turkish troops in northern Iraq by U.S. forces, is a bestseller in Turkey with over 450,000 copies sold to date.
