ISIS Boomerangs on Turkey, Yet Again 28 50 31 36 Murdered at Airport

No matter how you slice it, ISIS Jihadis get to Syria by flying to Turkey. The general deterioration of security is bound to happen. We don't know who for sure who did it yet.

Its very bad, but I don't know that we can trust Turkey to be the savior here, they are far from being a disinterested neutral observer.

Turkish officials said at least 28 people have been killed in a shooting and double suicide bombing at the third-busiest airport in Europe.

The Istanbul governor updated the death toll at 5 p.m. EST.

According to Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ, a gunman fired shots as people waited for the first line of security, the X-ray machines, at the international terminal at Istanbul Ataturk Airport. The local time was around 10 p.m.

Police fired at the shooter, who then detonated his device, he said. Officials then updated the number of attackers to three -- two more attackers set off their bombs, one in the domestic flights terminal and one in the parking lot.

A witness told NBC News that a police officer was seen tackling the gunman to the ground before the bomber exploded.

The attack comes at the crossroads of a few points of interest for terrorists: Israel and Turkey just signed an agreement today to normalize relations. The Iraqi government officially seized control of Fallujah on Monday after a long fight to drive out ISIS fighters. And it's still Ramadan, which ends July 5.

Wednesday is also the two-year anniversary of the establishment of the Islamic State. ISIS issued an anniversary video on Monday highlighting their expansion into the Arabian Peninsula, Sinai, Libya and Algeria.

I feel for the people of Turkey I do, but back in the day All our Fatwas belong to Turkey. That is to say Turkey was our #1 source for cool Islamic Death threats like, "I will cut UR neck." Stuff like that. Fun folks those Turks.

But one would have thought they'd have learned from watching what happened to Assad after he let AQ pass into Iraq from Syria. Anyway we are ALL in danger. I dunno, when Muslims stop killing each other and the Kuffar then maybe we'll quit being dragged through the mud with them.

I'm sure the 28 victims will probably be majority Muslim, the general population will then blame da Jews, who were in the process of re-establishing embassy relations with Turkey.

And the whole big fun thing starts over again, if it ends in Syria or Iraq there's still Somalia and other lovely places to contend with, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Philippines, Malaysia, Algeria, Kazakhstan, The Caucasus, EVERY Arab state, Iran. Did I forget anyone?

India, oh yeah. My bad.
