are looking for a rematch of Gallipoli:

The guys who died at Gallipoli niether knew, nor cared, about Muslims
one way or t'other. Had it not been for Turkey's unfortunate alliance
with the Austro-Hungarians there'd have been no need to secure free
shipping thru the Bosphorus.

Another source:

"Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has referenced Gallipoli and the Anzacs
World War II campaign as he responded to the Christchurch terror attacks, saying
anyone who goes to Turkey for anti-Muslim reasons. will be 'returned in
coffins'.

Erdogan - in full campaign mode for March 31 municipal elections for his AKP
party - has presented the attack as part of an assault on Turkey and Islam more
broadly and projected the video of the killings at his rallies over the weekend
to comment on what he called rising Islamophobia.

That drew a sharp rebuke from New Zealand, for using controversial video shot by
the Christchurch mosque gunman as an election campaign prop."

What kind of 'phobia' has Erdogan got? If groups of Canadian muslims are
"frightened" in the aftermath of the New Zealand massacre, as reported in
various media outlets, what kind of 'phobia' is that?

If muslims can be afraid following a brutal but fairly rare attack, on the other
side of the planet, why is it that other people cannot be similarly afraid given
the far more frequent attacks by radical Islamists around the world - without
that fear or concern being described as some sort of mental illness?
