'The deep state' behind the anti-Christian terror in Turkey?
Who is behind the terrorism in Turkey? Could it be fascists within the military?
The Economist, 22 December 2007, tells us about terror attacks on Christians in Turkey (The cross and the crescent):
In January 2007, Hrant Dink, an ethnic Armenian newspaper editor, was shot dead in Istanbul.
In April 2007, two Turks and a German, all Christian evangelists, were murdered in Malatya.
Husnu Ondul is president of the Turkish Human Rights Association.
Like many others, Ondul believes that the 'deep state', is behind the attacks.
The 'deep state' is made up of a few judges, army officers and security officials.
They need enemies to justify their grip on power.
Evidence leaked to the media in the Dink and Malatya cases points to collusion between the murderers and elements of the police and army.
The ruling Justice and Development (AK) party has treated Christians better than its secular predecessors did.
"The deep state is still in charge,” says a Christian priest.
