Peres depicted 'bowing' to Erdogan in Turkey

Shimon Peres, the President of Israel, was recently depicted 'bowing' to Turkish PM Erdogan in a banner unfurled in Turkey.

I find the picture rather comical. JPost calls this a 'bow,' but I think it is clear that it is of Peres giving Erdogan a bj, and modeled after the famous Davos crybaby incident of Erdogan's (last year). Somehow in a country not known for being receptive to homosexuality, this poster is acceptable.

This sort of childish inanity does not exhibit a strong society or a strong country. The world press had so much 'concern' over Danny Ayalon's bruhaha with a Turkish Foreign Minister, but somehow it is doubtful that they will cry foul over a building-sized banner of a bj.

I am proud (and I think we all should be proud) to be affiliated with a country that does not resort to cheap and tawdry gay baiting to make a point.
