By Juan Cole | (Informed Comment) | – –
Many, many thanks to everyone who contributed during the annual IC Fundraiser! I’m bowled over by your generosity, and pledge to keep Informed Comment at the cutting edge of analysis of both foreign and domestic policy!
Am enclosing a photo I took last fall in Istanbul at Istiklal Avenue, a busy shopping and cultural scene, which, however, is now a ghost town because of a series of terrorist attacks in the city. Let’s remember what normal looks like. My solidarity with the city’s people as they face an unknown future!
cheers Juan Cole
