Any genius can tell this was done by Turkey's intelligence agency to misdirect attention from Mr. Erdogan's allowing terrorists do oil transaction.Also arouse nationalistic feelings that the country is under attack; let unite with Mr. Erdogan regardless his criminal wrong doing, for now.

And please get rid of the filter that automatically deletes any mention of N0vinite....

Time for more English classes, N0vinite: "there were no casualties, but several people were injured" - so there were several casualties but no fatalities.

And what's with the "Asian side of Istanbul"? The only part of Turkey in Europe is Constantinople...

Maybe Greek, maybe Albanian - but either way, I don't suppose Atat?rk would be too happy at the way his country is going down the Islamist pan....

Turkey was created trough an Islamic jihad.. but after many years Turkey turn to a nationalistic state in which everyone has to be a Turk. A person whose farther did not know Turkish language did that. Now the Turks turned again towards the radical Islam in hope to save the relics of their empire.. but the violence and injustice they perpetuated work against them..
