      soofie habib: You're going around using Muslim names for your nick again. What is wrong with you Ali Akbar? If you are really a true muslim, you might want to reconsider your faith, because you'll realise you're sleeping with the enemy here. Don't worry, we won't count it as a loss.

      So J4bull.... You havent yet noticed that every time you mess with our people, they either blow you guys up, or some natural disaster befalls you...are you blind?

      Ali Akbar - 2011-09-20 13:54

      Turkey - I'm surprised that you've only got away with that and not some big natural disaster, after all the rubbish you have thrown at Israel lately. Mess with Israel, you mess with GOD period!!

      Ali Akbar - 2011-09-20 13:57

      @negro.please - Pretty hypocrytical of you I would say!

      slg - 2011-09-20 15:01

      What a ridiculous and vindictive thing to think and say. You should be ashamed.

    Turkey use to use Israeli security intelligence, but have fallen out with Israel, so expect the "Islamic Spring" to rear its ugly face.

  • lakhan7 - 2011-09-20 12:04

    ...these minibuses ...ey

  • Almaki - 2011-09-20 12:31

    Why on earth are most of the commentators on here so obsessed with Israel?

      Max - 2011-09-20 12:33

      My thoughts exactly. The Zionists are helping the NWO to disrupt the middle east

      Matt :-) - 2011-09-20 12:48

      What I find strange is that on Israel/Palestine articles, often it's mostly Christians v Atheists with some Muslims for good measure. Not this one so far, but generally. Which is weird...

      BrassCopper - 2011-09-20 13:02

      I think it’s because news24 is so obsessed with Israel... every second article the last 3 weeks was either about Israel or US's 9/11

      slg - 2011-09-20 15:02

      Funny Max. Do you not see your obsession? You're exactly the same.

  • Jonas_Barbar - 2011-09-20 12:44

    i would not be surprised if israel was behind this attack on innocent civilians

      Observer - 2011-09-20 12:48

      I would not be surprised if you blamed your toast being burnt in the morning on Israel.

      Realist - 2011-09-20 13:06

      Definitely no surprise

      jikamajika - 2011-09-20 15:04

      I don't want to utter a singlre wrong word against Israel, these people are the chosen nation by God. God will answer for you Israelites.

  • whity - 2011-09-20 12:48

    This is the work of Zionist isreal trying to destabilise the countries that are a threat to them, they will not succeed. They will fall soon like others before them in history.

      infidel - 2011-09-20 12:58

      Wishful thinking whity. Thats all you and your muslim friends can do is hope. Israel will be around for a long time still and getting more and more support in the war against islam. All you Israel haters can do hope for help from history... pity you cant do anything on your own hey.

      aaron - 2011-09-20 13:06

      you are right. isreal will be wiped out soon. history is on the side of the palestinians

      Realist - 2011-09-20 13:09

      @Infidel We've said it to your kind a thousand times, bring it...we aint running...I hate to dawn this on you, but we've been whipping your asses for the last 1400 years, and even now, you cant take us out.... Stop living on teh strength of your zionist brothers, if you want a fight, we're more than ready to give it to you

      geeghey - 2011-09-20 15:21

      @ realass-ist, you keep on saying "we", who exactly are you refering to? are you hiding in a cave in pakistan or afghanistan with your camel jokey friends planning your next jihad or are you pretending to be a big boy and fight with your big mouth behind your pc? you should change your name to "the couch terrorist".

  • Barbara - 2011-09-20 13:12

    What has Israel got to do with the Turkish blasts?

      slg - 2011-09-20 15:05

      Exactly. Anti-zionists are looking at zionists in the mirror. They're the same. Only the anti-zionists don't know it. They're as obsessive and wrong. This is likely the work of Al-Quaeda and Muslim extremists. The world is begin called to unite against them

  • Scrutineer - 2011-09-20 17:01

    Probably the PKK's work.

      Fragile - 2011-09-20 18:06

      lol this must be the only correct talkback here. Turkey is a terrorist state. Free Kurds NOW!
