in response to reader comment: so nice to live in turkey

Incidents in Turkey are regretable, but one cannot say it is solely directed against Christians. There is violence in Turkey, as in any country, and you mentioned only a few deaths, which while unfortunate, do not damn the whole country. The majority of Turks, wait, the super freaking overwhelming majority of Turks oppose these crimes and bombings. The Turkish government works tooth and nail to stop these terrorists. That is like saying America is an abortion haven killer machine because there were a few bombings at abortion clinics, also regretable and sad.
