The video was not very clear. It looked like one man walks in where teenagers or young adults are drinking, listening to music, and socializing. An older man goes ape sh*t crazy on them.

Lots of crazy is produces by high control fanatical religions like that.

Just today I read this:

Husband murdered in rare male Pakistan 'honour killing'


A man's throat was slit by relatives of his wife who disapproved of their marriage in the latest "honour killing" to hit Pakistan, police said Saturday.


A couple in Lahore who married without their family's consent were killed.


On Thursday relatives slit the throat of a young mother who was pregnant with her second child after she married against their will in the village of Buttaranwali, some 75 kilometres (46 miles) north of Punjab provincial capital Lahore.


A young girl wanted to marry the boy she loved...uh oh.


On Sunday a young girl was killed by her brother for insisting on marrying the man of her choice in the city of Sialkot, also in Punjab.


Crazy f'd up religion or genetics? Probably both.

So what? You're in a different country, rules, religion etc. Its not like the rest of the world.

And your wording is interesting: enjoying and alcohol.

You don't need the one to have the other...


What are you talking about? This isn't some unknown tribe in a rainforest. These are people just like the rest of us.

I'm not talking about opinion. I'm talking about acts of violence committed in the name of an invisible man in the sky. Atheism is just not believing in a god.

People suck. I agree. But religion is the scourge of mankind.

I don't think you need alcohol or radiohead to enjoy yourself.

I'd much sonner have the latter. Weird fishes is an awesome song...haven't listened to in rainbows for a long time.

Pretty sad, it doesn't matter what they were doing, what matters is they were harming nobody and didn't deserve that, pretty sickening.

Now if I were snowflake I'd play the victim card and pretend to myself that it wasn't the alcohol but the music that caused the outrage. I'd then embark on a crazy campaign to demonise people whi don't listen to or actually dislike radiohead - I'd put videos on YouTube of me ranting like a madman.

There'd be camps for people who don't like radiohead. Ramadan camps.

Yes, doing my research before comment.

Turkey is a secular government. Although, there are recent moderate Muslims elected.

Sounds almost like America, with fundamentalists pushing for more control and more religious law.

But, alcohol is legal.

The Middle East area (Turkey kinda on the border) - - - has had problems with Religious Fanatics attacking in groups.

As well as some other Islam prominent areas, such as Indonesia, which is also a secular government.

Are laws against religious fanaticism being enforced?

Yes...i had a memorable night in Istanbul in some of the coolest bars I've ever been to.

Unfortunately Erdogan is dragging the country backwards at full speed.

I personally am concerned about where turkey is headed.

Yes, that's kind of what I read.

Moderate Muslim, slowly moving back to fundamental laws of Islam.

Its a democracy, and he's winning by votes.

I'm at a point where I don't think the average person is qualified to vote. It's all about their personal wants and desires - - - they don't think beyond themselves to what is good for the country and world.

I think we should start with "block" votes. Neighborhood meeting discussing issues, coming to conclusion - - then sending one rep with the vote choices to a group of all the reps. And proceed this way.

This is how I party , usually .

In Ramadan I don't drink alcohol out of respect for those who fast .

Radiohead incident has a frequency of once in a decade ; nothing to be taken seriously.

As we say in Istanbul ; " Dogs will bark and Caravan will walk " .

There are people who want to see non muslim & non believers to abstain from drinking and eating in Ramadan .
Traditionally the Christian & Jewish minorities of istanbul were/are tolerant of their Muslim neighbours that they would not openly eat or drink anything thru out the Ramadan .



Overall , Istanbul is still the best party town around.





oh yeah , cats and dogs , we have plenty of them .
