Turkey’s Tradition of Murdering Christians

On 26 July, the northern French town of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray witnessed a horrific Islamist attack: Two Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists killed an 85-year-old priest, Jacques Hamel, in his church during Mass. Two nuns and two churchgoers were taken hostage.

The terrorists, who had pledged allegiance to ISIS and, shouting “Allahu Akbar”, slit the throat of the priest and captured the bloody episode on video, according to a nun who escaped the assault.

Such Islamist attacks might be new to EU member countries but not to Turkey. For decades, so many innocent, defenseless Christians in Turkey have been slaughtered by Muslim assailants.

Christians in Turkey are still attacked, murdered or threatened daily; the assailants usually get away with their crimes.

    Rather than saying Turkey, it should focus on Islam’s tradition of murdering Christians along with all other non Muslims. Islam is the cancer and the whole Muslim world carries it.

    Was it two terrorists?

    Sorry, I didn’t see the CBC news, but I am sure they would have reported it as two mentally deranged lone wolves who coincidentally attacked at the same time and same location and not as terrorists or jihad.

    Actually it has been a number of years since I have watched the CBC, since I boycott watching any of their programs.

    Oh the Turks have a grand tradition of murdering Christians.

    Begin with the Armenians, move on to the Greeks. The slaughter is endless.

    So, well, let’s get them into the EU. Because, Well just Because.
