Time to watch the liberals desperately try to find a reason this has nothing at all to do with Islam.

Horrible. According to reports one of the security guards had wrestled one of the suicide bombers to the ground right before he exploded. Seems like the quick action of the guards had prevented an even worse outcome as none of the terrorists made it past the entrance.

Maybe your country should stop bowing to Islam then.

True, but suicide bombings point towards them. Though political or ethnic groups have used them in the past, it would be rare for them to do so. With the Islamacists, suicide attacks are the norm.

Assuming this is politically based...almost all of this would stop - world wide - if countries minded their own business (outside of mass genocide, peace keeping and/or humanitarian aid) AND respected the rights of people to self-determination through democracy - I.E., if a majority of people in a region wish to become independent from their country, they should be allowed to do so.

All religions have a suicide potential. Some of the Sri Lankan suicide bombers justified their attacks by Hinduism. Islam is just able to tap into more people willing to commit suicide.

May the One God of All be with the innocents who perished.

May the fires of Hell rain down on cowards, communists, fascists, and Islamic radicals, whoever they are and wherever they may be.

It wasn't too long ago that Turkey was a largely secular state. Now, it's almost a theocracy. Christopher Hitchens had it exactly right. Religion poisons everything.

The overwhelming majority are and this one will turn out to be as well. But as expected, you're already moving to defend that ridiculously idiotic "religion of peace".

yeah, like Israel, like the people who founded this country? Was Michelangelo "poisoned by religion"? Was Linoln?

people who say that make me wonder if they ever picked up a history book.

Were Muslims attacked and murdered?

Unlike the United States and Israel, both of whom have gone from religious to secular. Turkey is going the other way.

Doesn't really seem to matter to Islamic terrorists. They're entirely fine with killing the "wrong kind" of Muslim.

It's horrible no matter who did it for what reason. Lots of people just living are now not. Because EVIL people decided that it was worth the effort.
