We are outraged by the recent attack on the Turkish-Jewish community in Istanbul. No doubt, the terrorist organizations will again rush to take the "credit" for the attack, the terrorists will again try to justify their dastardly act labeling it as "political violence," and having obtained the press coverage they were looking for they will go back to plan the next murderous attack.
Why can't the civilized nations of the world see eye to eye at least on this problem and take decisive action against terrorism?
