The radical Islamist Turkish daily Vakit's website attacks Coca Cola; claims that according to Belgian studies the drink causes poisoning and anemia; and alleges that 50% of the company's net profits are transferred to Israel's military.
Vakit also claims that Coca Cola ads used in Jewish areas say "By drinking Coke, you are supporting Israel". The Islamist daily claims that a large portion of Coca Cola's profits come from Muslims and that Muslim countries are helping Israel acquire bombs, tanks, fighter planes and arms by drinking Coke.
