Turkish Grey Wolves target ‘Chinese’

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s visit Wednesday with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing came at an awkward time.

So far this month, Turkish ultranationalists have attacked two Chinese restaurants in Istanbul, assaulted Koreans (whom they mistook for Chinese) at an iconic palace and tried to break into the Chinese embassy in Ankara. The perpetrators claim to be avenging China’s alleged prohibition of Ramadan fasting among its Turkic-speaking Uighur Muslims. The attacks have not only strained Turco-Sino relations, but also threaten to devolve into a new phase of violence against Turkey’s religious and ethnic minorities.

    So the Turkish pisslamist intolerance may come back to bite them on the ass? Good!

    The news is just as bad as ever.

  • Turkish fraternity is coincidental. It is all about Islamism.

    And what is with this pseudo-mach vengeance-taking? It’s ridiculous.

    The Korean word, “boksu”, means both “plural” and “revenge”. I suggest the victimised Koreans repeatedly take their revenge against their assailants.
