  • we oppose terrorism, including, of course, the attack on Ataturk Airport and the murder of travelers and security personnel there.

    but, given the Turkish government’s support for hamas, an unapologetic supporter of terrorist attacks on Israeli and Egyptian targets, including airports, one has to wonder on what principle the Turkish government opposes today’s horrific attacks…”but these were attacks on me”? “it’s OK when hamas attacks the Jews, but we are not Jews”? “Egypt is a legitimate target but Turkey is not”?

    let’s be clear: hamas is allowed to operate freely in Turkey. if one opposes terrorist attacks on civilian targets, then, that opposition, if it is genuine and principled, must be consistent.
