have you heard of statistics? Turkey is a Moslem monoculture 99,8% - better than the United Arab Emirates (96%) or Iraq (97%) and just second to Suadi Arabia with 100% Moslem population. Consult the CIA Factbook, if you don't believe! >The thing the Turkish government was doing was just allowing hair scarves to be wore at universities. If this makes a country become a Muslim country, then the USA would have been Muslim for years.< Don't be ridiculous, man! Make the US a 99,8% Moslem monoculture which was essentially what Gazi Mustafa Kemal Pasha did to Turkey, and then insist that as Moslem scarves are banned at American universities it shows perfectly well that the US with its 99,8% Moslem is as secular as France under the French Revolution... Give me a break!
