      • Yes, yes, you are absolutely right, my sayani friend, nazis and racists from Israhell are directing the operation.

        Ovadia Yosef: “Why are Gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why Gentiles were created.”

        “It is not President Assad against his own people. It is President Assad and the Syrian people, all together, in unity, against outside forces, outside mercenary forces, terror organisations, the names change everyday or every other day, to try to protect their identity, and maybe keep the connection between the country that funded it and that group, kind of a little bit more nebulous, but there are groups, mercenary forces, supported by Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, United States, and underneath it, Israel, the state of Israel.”

    • Not turks : just islamists…
      Errrrr… Isn’t Erdogan an islamist? Isn’t his Brotherhood affiliated AKP? So… And the more AKP will extend their dark hand over the once secular Turkish society, the more such events will happen!
      Mixing religion and politics, whatever the religion is ALWAYS end with gruesome results. It’s even worse when the religion is basicly a warrior cult, so it is with Islam, so was it with the Norse mythology or the Aztecs’ cult.
      Crappy politicians will simply use religion for their personal power in order to put the worshippers on their side opening the way to fanatics doing their foolish shit then people will die in the name of some imaginary entity. What’s more crappy to die because of things that don’t even exist!

  1. I need DNA proof that the dead assailant is the same person as the shooter (lol, I know that is not going to happen). My guess is that the dead person is a patsy who was set up take the blame.
