Emrullah Isler, chairman of the Turkish Parliament’s Committee on National Education, Culture, Youth, and Sport, said that the country’s Higher Education Board had decided against the admittance of new students in Turkish universities’ French language departments.
Al Jazeera cited Isler as saying that the move came in response to last month’s manifesto released by 300 French figures who urged the removal of some parts of the Quran and denounced a “new anti-Semitism” sparked by “Islamist radicalization.”

Signed by French politicians and celebrities such as former president Nicolas Sarkozy and actor Gerard Depardieu in late April, the manifesto specifically reads, “We demand that the fight against this democratic failure that is anti-Semitism becomes a national cause before it’s too late and before france is no longer France.”
