The lawmakers in Ankara turned lawbreakers, using violence against their opponents inside the Parliament.
The Turkish parliament descended into chaos when a furious brawl erupted as the country’s ruling party sought to push through a controversial bill boosting the powers of police in protests.
Some lawmakers chased their counterparts from other parties with gavels in their hands while others hurled glasses at them, eyewitness Melda Onur, a female MP from the opposition CHP party, told the Hurriyet newspaper.
An unofficial image posted on the Internet showed another lawmaker surrounded by plants having fallen into an ornamental flowerbed during the fracas overnight Tuesday to Wednesday. Five opposition lawmakers were injured in the scuffles, with two suffering head injuries inflicted by the ceremonial gavel normally used by the speaker, the Dogan news agency said.
Four of the five required hospital treatment for their injuries and the session, which had gone on until after midnight, was finally adjourned until Wednesday afternoon.

We are all aware of the global campaign to brand Islam as “the religion of peace”. But not even the Muslims inside the Parliament in Ankara seems to get it right.
The great irony is that this NATO country is called to defend the freedom of expession. But these lawmakers have conventiently turned them selves into lawbreakers. And not over any trivial issue. But in a bid to find a better way to curb violence.
To achieve peace in Turkey, the Muslim politicians should throw in their papers. Please grant them a free membership in the local boxing federation.
What can Muslims learn from the Christian faith and value system?
Jesus the Messiah never told his followers to use violence. But rather to love and bless those who harm us. Many false Christians have misused His name. Be aware of them. Do not take a stand against Jesus because of the mischief of the mockers of his teachings. They will face a horrific eternity inside the flames of Hell.
Matthew 5: 43-45
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.
Also be aware that there will be terrible times globally, just before the return of the Messiah. What we see in the Muslim part of the world seems to be the best examples there are.
