in response to reader comment: The true Turkish color has been revealed

Submitted by Havas (Turkey), Oct 31, 2009 at 05:34

İf you were one of the people taking decision for Turkey, what politics would you follow? EU openly dont want to take you in. There is no future there.so no need to be their tail any more. We can now play our own game.America invaded Iraq and caused a huge Kurdish seperatizm problem in Turkey, much powerfull than before.this was the reason turks rejected americans to use the turkish soil for the invasion. Everything has reasons ,economic ,military and strategical. İt is not very clever to assume that islam,kuran and ummah feelings are the reasons to cause turkey to turn her face to east. İf Turkey started to get closer to İran,syria and even to armenia there are reasons for that. İf Turkey started object İsraels tough attitude against phalestein and hamas ,this also has reasons. Politicians of Turkey probably calculated that Turkey needs less israeli weapons or tourists or lobby in usa and more irans natural sources which is more valuable for turkey .besides now more arabs and iranians visit our country.also high level of good relations with syria opens the arab investments. turkey is about to solve the kurdish seperatist problem and came close to open the armenian border and armenia has accepted to discuss the so called armenian genocide by joint historians .may be the reason of staying away from İsrael are these. Also western people must realise that a new world is coming up and they may not be able to continue to be the boss of the world any more.So dont be upset, we dont hate western people ,we are not your enemy,we are not terrorists,we dont blame you for anything. we only think it is more profitable for us to join the new world.
