    Yesterday in Trabzon, a religious man who had worked for two years in Trabzon was killed in the doorway of the church where he performed his duties. The people who lived around the church said that Priest Andrea Sentore had been a much loved figure in the area. They attested that Priest Sentore had never differentiated between religions, and had distributed food to the poor in Trabzon, contributing only good to his neighborhood.

    The caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed that were printed in a Danish newspaper were first published on September 30, 2005.
    Which means that they first came out 4 months and 5 days ago, looking back from today. Suddenly, 4 months later, the same caricatures showed up in certain European newspapers. The provocations, which were notched up step by step, wound up in the murder yesterday of a priest in Trabzon. Now, I don't give much credit to conspiracy theories normally, but this doesn't prevent me from thinking that in real life, there is a place for conspiracies.
    So now I am wondering, who is behind this reappearance of these caricatures in the Western press? Does it not seem strange to you that Muslims have just now, 4 months down the line, realized what these caricatures meant? And is it a simple coincidence that the murder of a Christian priest, in the doorway of a church where people have prayed in peace for the past 132 years, has not taken place in a much more conservative country, but in a Muslim country praised for its secularity? The capture of the suspects in this murder ought to be a matter of honor for the Turkish Republic. Because this act did not just target a priest in a church in Trabzon. The bullets which were fired targeted our peace, our country's respect, and the tolerance we all carry for members of other religions.
