“Car bombs exploded outside two synagogues in Istanbul at almost the same time during Sabbath prayers on Saturday, killing at least 16 people and wounding more than 140, the interior minister said.” This from AP.
It isn’t the first time. “Security has been tight at Neve Shalom since a 1986 attack when gunmen killed 22 worshippers and wounded six during a Sabbath service. The Iranian-backed Shiite Muslim group Hezbollah carried out a bomb attack against the synagogue in 1992, but no one was injured.” . . .
“In a telephone call to Anatolia, a person claiming to be from a radical Turkish group, the Great Eastern Islamic Raiders’ Front, said the militant group was responsible for the attacks, and promised more. The caller said ‘the attacks would continue in the future and the reason was that to prevent the oppression against Muslims,’ the agency said.”
What could worshippers at an Istanbul synagogue have been doing to oppress Muslims? That question takes you straight into the Protocols of the Elders of Zion territory, which of course is where radical Muslims live.
