The deadly attack on Turkey’s Ataturk International Airport claimed the lives of more than 40 people in Istanbul, just weeks after a similar attack killed 49 at a gay Orlando nightclub.
But where the Orlando massacre spurred an outpouring of support from communities around the world, the response to three suicide bombers detonating devices in Istanbul seems muted.
Although yet to be confirmed, Turkish officials say the self-proclaimed Islamic State or Daesh terror group is responsible for sending three suicide bombers into the crowded Ataturk International Airport Tuesday.
The attackers began firing weapons at the airport’s terminal entrance and later detonated suicide vests, killing more than 40 and wounding close to 240.
Author and commentator Haroon Moghul, senior fellow and director of development at the Center for Global Policy, joins us to discuss the difference in responses between the Turkish and Orlando attacks.
Moghul is the keynote speaker at the Atlantic Institute of Jacksonville's Table of Abraham interfaith event Thursday night.
