Statement on the Attacks in Istanbul
As TASWI (Turkish-American Society of Wisconsin), we express our sorrow and sadness about the violence and deaths on Istanbul Ataturk Airport in Turkey. Our thoughts and prayers are with Turkish-American community in Wisconsin and the people in Turkey. As always, we solemnly condemn any terrorist activity regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or religion.
It is a fact that terror has become a global catastrophe, and no doubt it is a crime against humanity and violence without rules, for all countries, states, and people of faith. Terrorism always brings anarchy, destruction, and suffering. Such a despicable and inhumane way to achieve some political, religious, or economic goals is considered among the greatest crimes committed against the humanity.
As TASWI, we will continue to work to promote education and dialogue within Wisconsin and contribute to peace and friendship in our community.
