Germany shuts embassy, consulate and schools in Turkey on ‘very concrete’ tip-off of impending attack

Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said the threat to German institutions in Turkey was being taken very seriously. The embassy in Ankara has been shut, along with the Istanbul consulate and two German schools.

“Yesterday evening, some very concrete indications – to be taken very seriously – reached our security services, saying that terror attacks against German institutions within Turkey were being prepared,” Steinmeier said.

Must be those Amish again.

    Wow! So all those unassimilated Turkish immigrants and a million Muslim migrants sure did not buy them very much goodwill, did it?
    Maybe we are going about our relations with Islamic countries all wrong then?
    Yes, I’m quite positive that we are.
    Close the embassy, and keep it closed.

      Letting in a million is a weakness.

    Why are there German schools in Turkey?

      Such schools are needed for the children of foreign diplomatic personnel (not just German) and they also usually take in as pupils, the children of big shot Turkish parents who get repeatedly posted back and forth between the two countries. Besides the constant higher security, they also work as prep schools for those intending to continue their higher education at German or Swiss universities.
      Obama’s kids attended a similar very posh high security deal in Washington.
