E.g. Turkic runes

Reader comment on item: Is Turkey's Government Starting a Muslim Reformation?
in response to reader comment: Why not another script entirely

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), May 23, 2008 at 18:13

Shouldn't the Turkish racists rather consider introducing the ancient Turkic runes as known from the Orkhon and Yenisei inscriptions (8th-9th century) ? After all they believe that in accordance with Ataturk's infallible teachings Turkish - just like the "superior" Turkish race - is the most ancient and noble of all the languages on earth. If so, doesn't it deserve its own "original" script ? ( I say "original" as everything the Turks have is someone else's property or invention. Turkic runes come from the Sogdian script.)
