"Safe" Turkish Airport Explodes in Terror Attack!

Different news sites are reporting various numbers of dead and casualties from last night's bombing of the Turkish Airport.

I guess we won't have the exact numbers immediately.

Three suicide bombers opened fire then blew themselves up in Istanbul's main international airport on Tuesday, killing 36 people and wounding close to 150 in what Turkey's prime minister said appeared to have been an attack by Islamic State militants.
One attacker opened fire in the departures hall with an automatic rifle, sending passengers diving for cover and trying to flee, before all three blew themselves up in or around the arrivals hall a floor below, witnesses and officials said.
The attack on Europe's third-busiest airport was one of the deadliest in a series of suicide bombings in Turkey, which is part of the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State and is struggling to contain the spillover from neighboring Syria's civil war. It is also battling an insurgency by Kurdish militants in its largely Kurdish southeast.
Police fired shots to try to stop two of the attackers just before they reached a security checkpoint at the arrivals hall, but they detonated their explosives, a Turkish official said. (Reuters)

On the Israeli TV news last night, the commentators kept repeating that the Turkish airport is considered one of the safest in the world. It begins its luggage inspections at the entrance to the airport (if I followed what he said) and not in the departure lounge. But I think we all know that when terrorists are determined, we must have Gd on our side, willing to lend a Hand, aka siyate d'Shmaya, in order to escape or minimize the damage.

Also, we know perfectly well that Turkey supports Arab terrorism against Israel. That is what the Mavi Marmara Flotilla was all about. Those who harbor and legitimize terrorism against others shouldn't be surprised when terrorists terrorize them, turning them into targets. That is what has been happening in Turkey. All countries that think that they can pacify terrorists by offering them Israel as an accepted target are completely wrong. Look at Europe, France, Belgium etc.

You took the words right out of my mouth!
Just a few days after meeting with Hamas terrorist leader Khaled Mashal in Istanbul, Erdogan and Turkey get another visit from Islamic terrorists.
This is sure to seriously dmage Turkeys tourism industry.

Turkish President Erdoğan meets Hamas MUSLIM TERRORIST leader Mashal in Istanbul

This curse on Islam, never ending internecine wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia etc., is also now spreading into JORDAN!
(Egypt's tourism has been damaged by two planes brought down by Muslim terrorists)

Have you heard what King Abdullah II has had to do ?
