In so called modern Turkey:
Atmosphere of terror for non-Muslims in Turkey. When there was a comparable level of activities against non-Muslims in 2006 and 2007, they ended up in disaster with a string of murders of Christians: Father Andrea Santoro in Trabzon, Hrant Dink in İstanbul and three Christians in Malatya were killed.
‘I wish I wasn’t Armenian’
These are the words of an old Armenian lady whom the Taraf correspondent called Aunt Seta. Ms. Seta is a close friend of the four Armenian women who were attacked in the Samatya neighborhood of İstanbul recently. One of the ladies died while the others were seriously injured. No suspect has been caught yet. Some argue that these ladies, all of whom were over 80 and living alone, were attacked by thieves whose only intentions were to steal their valuables.
