Dubai officials announced that they had identified the group of assailants, and even published photos, names, and nationalities, based on the passports.

Last January, I warned of a dangerous slide by Turkey into the Islamist orbit, Turkey Looking Like The Next Iran. About a month ago, I further noted Caroline Glick’s excellent article about Turkey’s coziness with Iran and anti-democratic Islamism, Turkey is Lost to Islamists.
