An official says Turkish authorities have tightened security for the Istanbul-based Orthodox Patriarchate following allegations of a plot to attack the spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians.

Unconfirmed local media reports said Friday police briefly detained a man following a tip that he planned to assassinate Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I.

Haberturk newspaper said prosecutors in Ankara were investigating the alleged plot. Police wouldn't confirm the reports, and the prosecutor's office did not immediately return calls.

Hillary called, said he didn't need any more security. That what he had already was too much, and that to even think about murderous islamist radicals hell-bent on punishing, then taking over the entire world in their dream of "restoring the caliphate", is blind Islamophobia --- and should be stopped. Like right now. Don't talk about it...and whatever you do...don't EVER make contingency plans taking that mouth-breathing, ignert, Islamaphobia stuff into serious consideration.

Besides, if the patriarch was ever to be harmed, it would be America's fault. George Bush still makes bad things happen, so when or if bad things do occur, we all know whom is to blame.
