Mohammad strikes again! Fifty people attending a wedding party south of Istanbul were delivered piecemeal to their maker. Hands, legs and heads everywhere. A brutal scene of pure terror meant to sow unrest in the once Christian country.
Erdogan has a violent accusatory mindset, blaming the Kurds, Israel, ISIS for his country’s ills. He sees a conspirator, coup or assassin behind every Mosque. Erdogan’s own words there is “absolutely no difference” between ISIS, Kurdish rebels and the movement behind the U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, calling them terrorists. There is only one word to describe this anti American despot, “KILLER.”
No one has claimed responsibility for today’s attack. According to news reports a 12-14 year girl suicide bomber pulled the trigger. Erdogan has seized control of the media effectively turning Turkey into an autocratic regime; opponents are afraid of what is next.
The Europeans have it right so far, rejecting Turkey’s entrance into the European Union (EU). What sets Europe apart from Turkey is their Islamic identity while Europe on the whole is Christian. And don’t forget that Turkey, mainly consisting of an Asian people, was an invading country under the Ottomans; Greece, Bosnia and Spain fell in their wake. That brings us to Turkey today. A NATO member under the iron hand of Islamist Erdogan who has no trouble stirring the pot of racism, blaming others for his faults.
Case in point, the Kurds who have been clamoring for their own country without success. Turkey is adamant that the Kurds are Turks and not minorities, therefore by acquiescing to their demand it would open the floodgates for others. That is a self serving argument. And with ISIS one mile from the Turkish border on the ready to massacre the Kurds in Syria, Erdogan says let them die, we will not help with their defense.
