This is the 5th bomb attack since July 2015 in Turkey and western media is silent about this.
I`m getting angry now with every “Turkey is a Muslim country, it was never safe there” from people who never went abroad. Ignorance is a declaration towards war and I`m tired of explaining to you how my second home is a very safe place and this is terrifying for them as they have no idea how to handle this since is not `a normal thing`.
I hate it! I hate to go again and again to ask my Turkish friend if they are alright, just hoping they are alive and haven`t decided to take the bus to university or go shopping in the wrong day.
And I hate even more how the number of tweets started to grow after Turkish Police reported two Irish citizens were among deaths, like the rest of the people don`t count. It is the 11th terrorist attack in the last three months in Turkey. Where is the red flag on your profile pictures?
Turkish people don’t talk Arabic, they don’t use Arabic alphabet and they are not Arabs. They are not Europeans either. It`s the perfect mix of cultures and understanding. For a wondering soul, this is the perfect home.
On the 2016 World Countries Awards, Turkey has been voted the Best Country in the World and the Nicest People on the Planet. Now tell me again how they deserve what they got.
My second home is not a terrorism nest, nor a disaster waiting to happen. They`re facing a big refugee crisis as Greece is and are trying to do their best.
I`ve been in most of those places where the bombs exploded and I feel chills on my spine every time I`m thinking about those moments. What if the bus would have exploded while I was waiting for it? What if the suicide bomb attack was near the shop I used to go for sales?
Call on all for zero tolerance to terrorism.
Please convince yourself and read my post about the last time I`ve been visiting Turkey. Every idiot has an opinion, so inform yourself, search through multiple sources and be firm on your beliefs before vocalizing ignorance.
