The claim that Hillary Clinton has received support from an ultra-nationalist Turkish filmmaker, that I wrote about on February 2, 2008, has made it to the New York Post:

February 11, 2008 — SEN. Hillary Clinton has gotten cozy with a Turkish-born businessman whom some have described as anti-Semitic. Clinton’s campaign Web site identifies Mehmet Celebi as one of her “HillRaisers” – someone who has raised at least $100,000 for her presidential bid. This despite Celebi’s controversial producing credit on “Valley of the Wolves: Iraq” – a 2006 movie that depicted a Jewish doctor removing the vital organs of civilian prisoners to sell to wealthy transplant patients overseas. “In accordance with the old anti-Semitic canard, the movie portrays Jewish-American doctors as forcibly harvesting organs from Muslims to give them to Jews,” noted Detroit lawyer and columnist Debbie Schlussel observes on her blog. Clinton spokesman Jay Carson didn’t get back to us for comment.

According to Debbie Sclussel’s blog, who is quoted in the New York Post article, the story was broken by Gateway Pundit who wrote about the story on February 6, 2008. The latter blog’s reference to the story was The Kurdish Media that wrote about the Clinton affair hours after my original post.

Not that I want to become a breaker of a Clinton scandal… Anyhow, the actual credit should go to the people who made the YouTube video that was my source when I first wrote of the affair.
