Turkey's Parliament Speaker: Terrorism Crime against Humanity

Cemil Cicek said those who killed children, women, the elderly and innocent people could not be innocent.

"Those who support such people cannot be human beings, and they are the partners of people who make this violence and murder," Cicek said during a fast-breaking event in Ankara, according to the Turkish Weekly.

Cicek said although terrorism was a crime against humanity, humanity was not making sufficient solidarity against it but on the contrary there was a primitive and outdated understanding to use and benefit from terrorism in destabilizing a country.

The parliament speaker said terrorism had no religion, sect or ethical origin, and those who turned a blind eye to terrorism as long as it did not hit their country, and tolerate terrorism, would be hit by it sooner or later.

Cicek said the massacre in Norway was a painful expression of the fact that the Turkish state had been voicing for years.

Turkish parliament speaker said some circles were trying to associate Islam with terrorism, however Islam, a religion of peace, was against killing of people.

Cicek said it was wrong to link any violence around the world with Islam, and gave Norway as an example.

"Muslims come to mind immediately after a terrorist attack is staged in the world, which is an issue we have to deal with as a priority," he said.

Cicek said it would be beneficial if prejudices were eliminated and Islamic world acted in a serious solidarity.

At least 76 people, including Turkish girl Gizem Dogan, died and many others were wounded in July 22 double attacks in Norway's capital Oslo and the nearby island of Utoya.

Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-year-old far-right extremist, is the main suspect of the car bomb explosion in Oslo as well as the following bloody raid against a political youth camp in Utoya, a holiday island close to the Norwegian capital.
