July 25, 2016
On July 15 our beloved country suffered a most violent physical assult. Seven bombs were dropped on The Grand National Assembly which was then in session. As the right wing of the building was severely damaged, the Deputies went on to resume their meeting in the under ground shelter. Peoples’ representatives refused to leave the building and stood sentry for the next twenty-four hours within which the attempted coup was thwarted. Please note that never before in its 139 year old history, neither by enemy nor by foe had the Turkish Parliament (1877) been corporeally attacked. This damnable transgression is the very first.
Concurrently, the modest seaside resort where the Honorable Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his family, including grandchildren, were vacationing, was being raided by a dozen men heavily armed with gun night sights. The men were masked and bore no insignia, military or otherwise. As security guards engaged the gang, the President of the Turkish Republic scaped the assasination attempt by some fifteen minutes only. Please note again that in our long history, no political leader, including the late Prime Minister Adnan Menderes, was impeached without due legal trial.(daha&helliip;)
