So disrespectful.

Many lost husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, friends today for simply celebrating the new year and you think it's one big #ing joke?

Most likely ISIS will take the blame from it as it has released Santa related threats.

Daily mail ISIS & SANTA

I don't speak Turkish, so a confirmation of a Turkish speaker or native would be appreciated;

But as translated on twitter:


Temp. gag order, issued by PM's Office, bans any coverage on the scene or suspects except official statements


twitter source
and
original statement

Let me guess, the guys firing the guns were pissed off at people drinking alcohol?

I forget if it's forbidden there or not.

Mass murder in the most popular nightclub in the heart of Istanbul.

So thats obviously directed at the Turkish Gubment and its policies. Reprisal for slaughtering Kurds, the price for cozying up to Russia and Iran, or abandoning the insurgents in Syria.

Maybe all three.

Found this video/tweet

twitter.com...

which makes me wonder why the entrance was being videoed before the shooting actually started.
