    Sowing the seeds of Love seems an impossible task around that region.

    Erdogan is reaping what he has sowed.

    No no no don't even think about it, of course you are wrong to even think that the religion of the area might have anything to do with this.
    So let's help reeducate you.

    Tragic, RIP the victims

    Also like, clown epidemic at llhallows, Saint Nicolas who was a Turk will have bad connotations for these folks forever robbing a fun childhood fanstasy of generousity and sharing to hatred and bloodshed

    he legend of Santa Claus can be traced back hundreds of years to a monk named St. Nicholas. It is believed that Nicholas was born sometime around 280 A.D. in Patara, near Myra in modern-day Turkey

    Still on the run?

    The sooner all religions are banned, and science is taught to all children instead, the better.

    Do you have any idea what's going on in Turkey at the moment? Do you even know who Erdogan is or what trouble he has been causing?

    Give your raghead zombie horror story a rest and think about how you would react under similar oppressive leadership. Stoopid fooker.

    IS threats: By Rengin Arslan, BBC Turkish, Istanbul

    Despite there being no official statement about who might be behind this brutal attack, the finger of blame is being pointed at the so-called Islamic State.

    In the last two years of attacks in Turkey, Kurdish militants have mostly targeted military forces and police, while IS is known to target civilians.

    IS leaders have threatened Turkey and called on their followers to carry out attacks inside the country.

    Turkey began a ground operation against IS as well as Kurdish groups inside Syria four months ago.

    ^ Turns out not- Kurdish seperatists.

    The particular folly of an attack like this is underlined by the fact that of the 39 people who died, at least 25 were foreigners.

    Responsibility for the attack was claimed by TAK, a Kurdish militant group. It is an offshoot of the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

    ....Of the 39 people who died in the assault, at least 25 were foreigners, Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency reported – a reflection of the nightclub’s cosmopolitan appeal.

    Among the dead were an Israeli woman, three Indians, three Lebanese, a French-Tunisian woman and her Tunisian husband, three Jordanians, a Belgian national, a Kuwaiti citizen, a Canadian, a Syrian, three Iraqis, a Libyan, and at least five Saudis, according to those countries' foreign ministries and media reports.

    Not so, you apparently misread the article.

    From your posted reference;
    '...Istanbul's Vodafone Arena stadium...was hit by twin bombings on December 10, the Daily Sabah newspaper reported.

    In that attack, 45 police officers and civilians were killed when a car bomb hit a police vehicle and a suicide bomber blew himself up nearby.
    The twin attacks came at the end of a match between two top-division clubs, Beşiktaş and Bursaspor.

    ISIS claims responsibility for attack


    Daesh terror group has claimed responsibility for the Reina nightclub attack that killed 39 innocent people and wounded 65 others in Istanbul during New Year's celebrations.

    An armed assailant opened fire at the popular nightclub in Istanbul on Saturday night and escaped afterwards. 24 of the attack's victims were identified to be foreigners, 11 were Turkish citizens while four victims still remain to be identified, officials said later on Sunday.

    Seven Saudi Arabian, two Indian, one Canadian, one Syrian, one Israeli, two Morrocan, one Lebanese, one Belgian and four Iraqi nationals were killed, according to latest statements.

    The interior minister Süleyman soylu said that 65 people are in hospitals, receiving treatment, and added that "4 of those injured are in a critical condition. One of them is severely injured,".

    Turkish police forces continue with the manhunt for the assailant, who is yet to be unidentified.

    Previous reports had suggested that the assailant was dressed in a Santa Claus costume, however, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım dismissed the claims.

    The attack came only three weeks after the twin bombings by the PKK terrorist organization in Istanbul's Beşiktaş district, which killed 45 people, mostly on duty police officers.

    Ankara and Istanbul have been targeted by several attacks in 2016 carried out by the Daesh terrorists or PKK militants, killing more than 180 people.

    That confirmes the pattern in Daesh attacks, targeting defenceless civilians, whereas the PKK have provoked law enforcement and military targets.
    Plus it's not the style of the PKK to hate modern people out enjoying themselves.

    Accused Istanbul nightclub gunman Abdulgadir Masharipov formally charged, reports say





    The gunman suspected of killing 39 people in an Istanbul nightclub on New Year's Day has been remanded in custody, Turkey's state-run media says.
    Abdulkadir Masharipov was caught at a hide-out in Istanbul on January 16 after evading police for more than two weeks.


    He was formally charged with membership of an armed terrorist group, multiple counts of murder, possession of heavy weapons and attempting to overturn the constitutional order, the state-run Anadolu news agency said on Saturday.


    Authorities said the suspect was trained in Afghanistan and staged the attack for the Islamic State (IS) group.


    IS has claimed responsibility for the attack on the Reina nightclub.
