Je Suis Istanbul (& Dhaka & Baghdad & Medina)

Aniqa Raihan

On October 10, 2015, over 100 Turkish activists were killed by twin explosions at a peace rally in Ankara, the country’s capital. Three months later, 10 were killed in a popular tourist area in Istanbul. Then 28 in a military convoy. Then 37 in a public square. Then 4 in Istanbul. Then 11 in Istanbul. Then 45 in Istanbul.

Thank you, Aniqa Raihan, for your compassionate, humanistic article.
I especially like your final two sentences:

"We should not need to share a culture, skin color, religion, or system of government with another human being to mourn their loss. All people suffer at the hands of endless war, as do our planet and our sense of common humanity, and all people deserve peace."

Best regards and best wishes to you. Please stay safe.

Thank you Aniqua for these introspective words. deckhughes, that's all you got from them ? Some kind of excuse for the apartheid policy of the Israeli gov with a je suis Jerusalem as an answer ? What are you doing on this site ? Trolling ?
