The currency is in mills, so it's not Turkish. My guess is it is an Egyptian revenue stamp.

I'm pretty convinced it's Egyptian, considering the cresent moon and three stars. Also the milliemes denomination. Just can't find it in Scott's. Perhaps a revenue stamp? Sorry I can't be of more help.

Another possibility is Libya (or perhaps more correctly Cyrenaica). They used mills too, although Egypt is probably more likely. Note "1935" in the top left corner.

I'm sure it's Egyptian. It is similar to the higher King Fuad values from 1927.
Described on eBay as Egyptian Kingdom Consular Revenue stamps:

A young Arabic speaking person who works for me confirmed it is Egypt, but could not decipher the writing on the bottom of the stamp

I only meant that if he is Egyptian then surely he can read Arabic.

But her heart will be in Byzantium,
For whom she will sing a requiem,
With a voice more euphoric than opium,
She bides through the night, forever out of our sight.
