Hmm, sounds more like al-Qaeda to me...maybe the Turkish gov't is blaming the Kurds though.

Attacking a vacation spot popular with westerners with multiple attacks seems to fit the al-Qaeda profile, but seems totally illogical why the Kurds would do this. Kurdish separatists would almost certainly attack high value targets to the Turkish government.

Let me, well Wikipedia, give you a run-down on the Kurdish separatist problem in Turkey most exemplified by the terror organization PKK (Kurdistan Worker's Party)...

The Kurdistan Workers Party (Kurdish: Partiya Karkerên Kurdistan or PKK), also known as KADEK and Kongra-Gel, is a militant group, aiming to create an independent Kurdish state in a territory (sometimes referred to as Kurdistan) that consists of parts of south-eastern Turkey, north-eastern Iraq, north-eastern Syria and north-western Iran. Its ideological foundation is revolutionary Marxism-Leninism and Kurdish nationalism. It is an ethnic secessionist organisation using force and threat of force against both civilian and military targets for the purpose of achieving its political goal. The PKK is listed as a terrorist organisation internationally by a number of states and organisations, including the USA and the EU.[1] (The Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan (PEJAK) based in northern Iraq and operating in Iran is associated with the PKK.)


en.wikipedia.org...

Kurdish separatists have a history of striking popular resorts as well...

A group called the Kurdish Liberation Hawks (Tak) said it carried out the bombing in Cesme on 10 July.

Their overall aim is to force the Turkish government to grant autonomy to the predominantly Kurdish south-east of the country, but the means to that end appears to be to strike at the tourism industry - the life blood of the Turkish economy, our correspondent says.

The Tak is an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has been fighting the government for independence since 1984.

Erm, it's exactly the same MO the Kurds have used time and again, so it's not going to be your boogey-man "Al Qaeda".
