    *#*#*#*#ing mother*#*#*#*#ers attacking people in their holy places. What bunch of piece of shits. There are a lot of synagogues and churches in that area not to mention the quite number of embassies. Some sad stuff.

    Yes yes!!!! Horrible!!!!!

    I mean, this is not the first time that this has happened! Especially in the same Area and in the same synagogue.....

    In 1986, 22 people died when someone opened fire in the same synagogue..

    in 1992, Hezbollah, a muslim-shiite group from Lebanon, backed by syria via Iran, opened fire and didn't kill anyone but terrorized the place.

    Israel and Turkey have very good relationships between one another and i think it really hurts. Many jews seem safe in Turkey, but now i think there reconsidering. Turkey for many jews is safe and proposporous place to be. I've been to turkey and ironically, i was in Beth Israel Synagogue a while back...

    Im very sad by these conflicting reports....

    many of the injured are old age people as well...

    Israel has said it will sent Emergency team to turkey to help out...

    The Eastern Islamic Raiders group (who the f-*#*#*# are they?!?!?!?!?) claimed responsibility for this...

    im off to work, bye!

    Very sad...from all indications Turkey was one of the last, and certainly the largest, outposts of reason in the Muslim world. I'm sure the vast majority of Turkish people will be as outraged over this as anyone decent would be, but it's still sad.

    My dad goes to Istanbul on business every few months and even considered it safe enough that he brought my mom with him when he went a month or so ago...don't know if this will be the case in the future. :(
