Turkish diplomats kidnapped in Iraq

Jihad is rising again in Iraq, and a country that's sinking back into darkness is one of the first to experience attacks on its politicians:
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is strongly condemning the kidnapping of Turkey's consul general and "many" diplomats in Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, which has been largely overrun by al-Qaida-inspired militants.

The U.N. chief told a meeting on counter-terrorism Wednesday he was "shocked" to learn of the kidnappings by "terrorists."

He urges the Iraqi government, regional countries and the international community to do everything possible to secure the safe release of the diplomats and bring the perpetrators to justice.

"This is totally unacceptable," Ban said.

He reiterated his statement Tuesday condemning the attacks on Mosul.
Gee, isn't that something. Ki-moon actually cares about Turkish diplomats. But would he have the same reaction if Israel's diplomats were the victims? I doubt it. What are the odds the Turkish diplomats abducted reflect the same policies as Recep Erdogan? Maybe they don't, but, if they do, then they've fallen victim to their own indoctrination.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
