Broadcast vehicle of Murdoch-owned Turkish TV channel pelted over Islam comment

A broadcast vehicle of private station Fox TV, owned by Australian media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, was pelted by an unidentified individual in front of the corporation’s Ankara bureau on Jan. 14.

The attack occurred after Murdoch wrote that all Muslims “must be held responsible until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer” via Twitter.

Murdoch’s remarks triggered harsh reactions among Turkish government officials, who denounced it as an Islamophobic comment, even prompting Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu to compare it to the “Nazi collective punishment.”

Police have launched an investigation into the incident in Ankara, as the assailant ran away following the attack.

The anchorman of the broadcaster’s primetime news, Fatih Portakal, was among the first to condemn Murdoch’s statement…

    Agree or Disagree?

    “There is no indemnity obligatory for killing a non-Muslim (harbi) at war with Muslims.” -Reliance of the Traveller, o4.17, p.593

    Sharia law permits the murder of anyone who verbally opposes Islam, since they are at war with Islam.

    YES OR NO … no weasel words, please…just yes or no.

    Obviously the truth is a problem for muslims. What Murdoch wrote is true. Since these 7th century goons cannot understand the truth it is impossible for them to change from the bloodthirsty violent goons that they are. Just look at this story. They attack a truck.
    There is absolutely no hope for muslims to join the world. They, all of them, need to be subdued and turned into dust. Then swept away into the dustbin of history, where they can join mohammad in hell.

      Not surprising, a shiny pink face would standout from the bearded filth flanking him, making him a prime target of the peshmurga.. well done. one less social problem for Canada.

    Post war Germany had its denazification and the general attitude was the German people had been struck by a mass sickness that the nazis personified.
    part of the marshall plan was to bring back a healthy productive society free of national socialism.
    There has been no reciprocal war with the islamic barbarians ..yet, but when it does happen the same tough love including banning the koran and mandatory education other than madrassas will be needed to return and redirect former muslim countries to productivity and peace

    Er, why are there never any interviews with the local “muslim clerics” who supervised the conversions of these fine chaps to the ROP?

    You would think they would be heartbroken.
