When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

And yes, the Romans handled their Guests badly.

Thanks for the little mini tour of Istanbul's fun times.

Hope it stays that way.

alcohol is legal in turkey, it is sold in markets, restaurants and they even have Bars.

no ban on alcohol, in turkey. now some merchants and restaurant may chose not to sell it due to their religion.

My point was, that when you're in someone elses back yard, it's wise and polite to abide by their rules.

In this case the Romans being the arabs who beat the crap out of those Visiting their country could have been a little 'more decent' about it ?

Were they outside? Were they being obvious? Were they being obnoxious?

Has anyone located the record store owner? I read he disappeared.

Could this attack be motivated by something else? A grudge against the owner?

Their rules allow Alcohol sales and consumption year round.

Muslims in this case, pushed their views/beliefs on people who were legally enjoying and consuming alcohol while listening to Radiohead.

Similar attacks have targeted art galleries in the area in the past, with critics claiming Turkey's current Islamic-rooted government is undermining the country's secular tradition. www.yahoo.com...




Istanbul (AFP) - Turkish police fired tear gas, water cannon and rubber bullets late Saturday to disperse hundreds of people protesting after Islamists attacked Radiohead fans for attending an album launch during Ramadan. A group of about 20 men beat up customers and employees at the Velvet IndieGround music store on Friday night, angry that they were drinking alcohol at the event during the Muslim holy month. Some 500 people gathered in Istanbul's central Cihangir neighbourhood Saturday night in response to a call from activists to protest against the attack, an AFP photographer said. The protesters shouted "Shoulder to shoulder against fascism!" and denounced President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as a "thief" and a "killer". www.yahoo.com...

They have video.

If they identify the attackers do you think anything will be done?

With their present Government? Probably nothing. Slap on the wrist if anything.

Yes i agree, but it was supposedly during Rama dam dam or whatever they call it, which prohibits drink. I don't know if that includes all people everywhere in their country or just believers in their special sky god.

If it's the latter then they were clearly in the wrong, and need a good a** kicking.

Turkey is actually a secular government. I had to look that up.

It is not a Muslim theocracy. At least not at the current moment.

Turkey used to be the most open country of all the Muslim countries but has recently become very nationalist, hoping for the days of the old Ottoman empire. Lots of propaganda movies and converting old orthodox churches that were once museums into mosques.

Turkey is going through some serious changes right now

So I read.

I really do try to read up on subjects before commenting.

Like I said up-thread, I'm not sure the average person qualifies for voting in heads of state.

The average person knows only their little corner of the world and their own personal wants, needs, and desires.

The world and politics is just way bigger then that.
