JIHAD WATCH (JPOST): The National Security Council's counterterrorism unit issued a travel warning Monday urging Israelis to refrain from visiting the popular southern coast of Turkey, between Alanya and Kemer, due to a "concrete terrorist threat."
This comes on ther heels of other terrorist bombings inTurkey - which theTurkish government has tried to blame on Kurds (but the Kurds have denied any involvement in these recent attacks). According to YNET:
"The threat in Turkey stems from global Jihad elements…" ... "Notably, terrorists arrested in Turkey last year in the wake of suicide attacks in Istanbul revealed that al-Qaeda was planning to target an Israeli cruise ship in the country. The terror cell, which targeted synagogues and the British consulate in Istanbul, originally intended to hit an Israeli ship, but the plans were averted after the ship changed course and docked at another port. One of the Turkish terrorists told police in Turkey the cell decide to strike the British consulate at the last moment, after the Israeli ship was diverted."
The steady pace of attacks is what distinguishes an 'insurgency" from mere isolated terror attacks. The pace of attacks and attempted attacks in Europe - especially Britain - and in Turkey has quickened of late. Might the recent 7/7 + 7/21 attacks signal the beginning of an "insurgency" or efforts at starting an"insurgency" in Britain and Europe and Turkey? More HERE and HERE and HERE. UPDATE: more (a concurring opinion from NRO's TKS) HERE, too.
