    The three men who carried out Tuesday's deadly attack on an Istanbul airport were all from parts of the former USSR, Turkish sources say. One is said to be from Russia's North Caucasus region and the others from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. Turkey believes so-called Islamic State (IS) was behind the suicide gun and bomb attack that left 43 people dead and 230 injured at Ataturk airport. Police detained at least 13 suspects in Istanbul and more in Izmir on Thursday.

    When the bodies of Islamic State fighters are recovered on the Syrian battlefield, the passports found on them have often been stamped in Turkey, which thousands of recruits pass through on their way to join the terror group.Fighters who call relatives abroad often do so using Turkish cellphone numbers, and when they need cash, they head to Western Union offices in southern Turkey, according to court and intelligence documents. From the start of the Islamic State’s rise through the chaos of the Syrian war, Turkey has played a central, if complicated, role in the group’s story. For years, it served...

He was a big, big, powerful, mean dude, something like Frank Ataturk. I don't know what his first name was. Anyway, do you know that the guy that runs Turkey now, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, although it's not pronounced that way. I've only heard Erdogan pronounced correctly once, and I don't remember how.

    Chapter 11 of the Acts of the Apostles says that Antioch was the city in which, for the first time, the disciples of Jesus were called “Christians.” Tradition has enthroned Peter as the founder of the Church of Antioch, following the narration of the very same Book of Acts, which tells not only of the arrival of Peter and Barnabas to the Turkish city, but also of their preaching.Moreover, this very same tradition claims that it was in the Knisset Mar Semaan Kefa (“Grotto of St. Peter” in Aramaic) where Peter would celebrate the Eucharist for this community.

    This man is a real-life hero. Sadly, we don't yet know whether he made it out in time. It goes without saying that we can write many terrible stories about the terror attack at Atatürk Airport in Istanbul yesterday. Dozens of people died -- at least 36, and possibly as many as 50 -- and as many as 150 innocent travellers were injured. There is a story behind every single one of those deaths: a story that, sadly, was ended prematurely because of the actions of a few radical Muslims who hate all those who dare have different views than...

Rather than discuss the trio of ISIS-suspected suicide attacks that has so far claimed the lives of 41 and injured many more, Clinton discussed revenge porn, calling herself “Exhibit A,” but declining to explain more. “I’ll do everything I can as president to figure out how we can give victims like you tools and protect yourself and others,” Clinton told the town hall audience in response to a question about revenge porn. “I’ll look to all of you —...

    But she did get around to releasing a written statement that said: “Today’s attack in Istanbul only strengthens our resolve to defeat the forces of terrorism and radical jihadism around the world. And it reminds us that the United States cannot retreat.” Radical jihadism. She probably never would have said even that phrase were it not for pressure from Trump’s excoriating her and Obama for refusing to identify the enemy, but she would no doubt insist (if asked, which she won’t be) that “radical jihadism” has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam.

    It seems to be a regular feature of the U.S presidential election cycle: Candidates from both parties solemnly pledge to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, only to sidestep the issue upon taking office. Shouldn't the selection of a capital city rest solely with the people of the country who reside there? Donald Trump believes it should. As president, he would recognize the right of the Israeli people to choose their capital city (a choice, incidentally, that has remained unchanged throughout 3,500 years of uninterrupted Jewish presence in Israel). That choice is Jerusalem. Ever since King David established Jerusalem as the...

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the shootings and bombings at Ataturk airport but Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said all initial indications pointed to ISIS. Kerry spoke about the attack Tuesday evening while at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, referring to ISIS as Daesh, CBS News reported.

    Turkey says Pope Francis' description of the WW1 mass killing of Armenians as genocide shows "the mentality of the Crusades". The pontiff's remarks have "no relation to reality", Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli said. Armenia and many historians say up to 1.5 million Armenian Christians were killed by Ottoman Turkish forces in 1915. But Turkey disputes the figure and denies the deaths constituted genocide. It says the deaths were part of a civil conflict triggered by WW1. The row continues to sour Turkish-Armenian relations, drawing in other countries such as Germany, whose parliament recently declared the killings to be...

Turkey, though, didn’t budge. In its first reaction to Francis’ recognition of the 1915 “genocide,” Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli called the comments “greatly unfortunate” and said they bore the hallmarks of the “mentality of the Crusades.” Francis began his second day in Armenia by paying his respects at the country’s imposing genocide memorial and greeting descendants of survivors of the 1915...

    BERLIN, June 2 (UPI) -- Turkey recalled its ambassador in Berlin after German lawmakers approved a resolution declaring the World War I mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks a genocide. Ambassador Huseyin Avni Karslioglu is expected to travel back to Turkey on Thursday, after the German Parliament declared the 1915-16 killings of some 1.5 million Armenians a deliberate act of ethnic cleansing. Germany's ambassador to Turkey has also been summoned. The move comes just hours after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned of "repercussions" from the vote.

In a largely Orthodox land where Catholics are a minority, Armenians seemed genuinely honored to welcome a pope who has long championed the Armenian cause from his time as an archbishop in Argentina and now as leader of the 1.2-billion strong Catholic Church.

That training, combined with a curriculum that teaches fervent hatred of Jews, is a recipe for disaster, the producer said, citing the recent wave of attacks.

One day after a group called the Anatolia Muslim Youth Association (MAG) called for an “intervention” against the “immoral” LGBT Pride March to be held on June 26 in Istanbul’s Taksim, the Alperen Hearths, an ultranationalist youth organization linked to the nationalist Great Union Party (BBP), threatened on June 14 to “take all risks necessary to stop the march.”

    A wide-ranging new study by the University of Münster shows that Germany’s Turkish community still has very conservative views on the role of religion in society. The survey provides an often contradictory picture of social attitudes among Germany’s 2.7 million people of Turkish origin. A total of 47 percent of the 1,201 respondents said that “following the tenets of my religion is more important to me than the laws of the land in which I live.” But the study also reveals that this viewpoint is much more firmly held by the first generation (57 percent agreement) — Turks who emigrated...

    A Preoccupied Western Media Fails to Appreciate the Historic Revival of Ties Between Russia and Israel Putin Netanyahu.JPG The recent meeting in Moscow between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin marks a milestone in the continuing rapproachment between Israel and Russia. The growing engagement between these former bitter adversaries has attracted limited attention in the Western media, obsessed as it is with Israeli-Palestinian issues. In its prior embodiment as the Soviet Union, the Russian government armed and abetted Israel's enemies and had a central role in the worldwide campaign to delegitimize the Jewish state. Ironically, while...

    Russia is not ruling out using its veto power at the United Nations Security Council to thwart anti-Israel resolutions, an unnamed Israeli diplomatic official involved in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to Moscow last week told the Israeli news site nrg. However, the official did qualify his statement, saying that the chances of Russia wielding its veto power in such a manner were very low. The official noted that the high level of respect Russian President Vladmir Putin demonstrated toward Netanyahu and his traveling entourage last week was unprecedented and indicated Russia’s deep desire to bolster its relationship with Israel....

    Tens of thousands of Russian dual nationals are being effectively stripped of their Russian citizenship via a quiet policy of Russian consulates worldwide refusing to renew their passports. Under new regulations the consulates are enforcing, anyone seeking to renew a passport who was not registered as living in Russia on February 6, 1992, will be rejected, even if his or her passport had been renewed on previous occasions. It is unclear just how many people this new policy will affect. But it will certainly apply to thousands of Jews who emigrated from Russia after July 1, 1991 — the date...

    With lightning speed, the liberal media is racing to the bottom trying to spin the overnight attack on the Orlando night club frequented by the gay population as a "gun control" issue, not a terrorist attack. Yet at the same time, ISIS is praising the attack and promising that more are to come. We are under assault. If you believe that marriage is the union of one man, one woman, and that God frowns upon homosexuality, you are under assault. If you are Jewish or support Israel's right to exist, you are under assault. If you live in the European...
