Submitted by BERK AKK (Turkey), Apr 29, 2009 at 02:49
1-Percentages of muslims in S.arabia and Turkey proves what? Are they same country you mean? I will not write the percentages of christ in Tansania or kenya or any other african country and make a comparision with Poland or germany.I advice you to take more care the meanings of "similiarity" and"differences".
1.a Turkey has large scale business ,military ,tourism relations with israel
1.b Turkey has secular constitution
1.c Turkey has diferent islamic philosopy then s.arabia.( most important)
1.d Different in public tradition
2-Unfortunately your are wrong that i went to S.arabia.I am not intending to leave the country for any reason other than friendship,bussines and natural tourism.I love poles,oceans,winds,rain and such.
3-I am an amateur evolutionary scientist.I do searches on human evolution.Professional engineer ,not an imam.I am against enmity between human populations ,they are same specie.What i cant understand is your seeking for a justice of 1000 years human history .who is guilty ,who is innocent.a supreme court and you are judge.
3-I believe Races,religions ,nationalities are part of human culture and will dissapear or will evolve not in far future as those are had been evolved up to now.
4-I am here by a chance and I have thankfull of daniel pipes forum and ready to quit upon any request.Not interested about fatwaas.
5-I have met thousands of perfect people from all over the world .I also met liars.You also possibly met many turks of such kind.Me too.Personally I dont make distinction between people in terms of their nationalities.I evalute them for their personal approaches.Turk,german,english,arab doesnot make any sense to me other than a human culture.
6-I feel the innocence in your mind .I just request to get some more amicable words.
