Our dear iftikhar rabina yaftakhirubihi akthar wa akthar who lives in England but has no like for the west. Go figure
Oh is this related to Islam means peace? and hint I'm being sarcastic here
>Turkey is an Islamic democratic country.
Bogus. If Turkey is a real democracy then why would they put anyone in jail that says that there was indeed an Armenian Genocide or that there is really a nation in Turkey called the Kurdish nation? You know what this means? it means that there is no freedom of speech in Turkey which would mean that Turkey is not a democracy
>It must look after the interest of all Muslim countries,
Hello: the so called Muslim countries have no like for Turkey after all Turkey occupied many of these countries in the Middle East for a long time and no one seem to miss the Turks and the most amazing thing is the fact that the Turks did not leave any legacy in those countries. The Arabs viewed the Turks as alien invaders that were not any different from the French or the British and no one missed them when they were kicked of the Middle East
The legacy of the Turks and their imperialism was nothing but horror and crimes against humanity
But you know what? I hope that they join the EU because in this case the Armenians and the Greeks that were expelled from Asia minor in 1922 and those that were killed in 1963 in cold blood in occupied Constantinople will be able to claim what belongs to them and the Turks will have nothing to say and Hagia Sofia should be returned to the Greek Orthodox Church
>just like, all western countries looking after their own selfish interests.
So why do you live in England mr demagogue?
