in response to reader comment: Ataturk's private problem

Submitted by havas (Turkey), Nov 14, 2009 at 14:53

ı am an ordinary middle class Turk. ı am not an expert in politics or religon.ı only try to think honestly. But you are not an expert either, although you think you are. You are a person full of hatered and anger against to people who belong to a different culture as a full block.you know and speak some correct things but because you have no desire to listen the other side, you can not see the whole picture correctly.you try to formulate that all muslims are evil minded people because they follow the evil ,terrorist ,child raper beduin cult.

this kind of thinking became popular after "bush the great" preiod. 9. 11 and al qaida attacs. so you people think that we muslims are a united front that we support each other under all conditions. saudi wahhabi islam and shii iran islam and secular turkish islam are all the same. and most of you know who created this so called islamic terrorists ,but because you people are over protective of your cultures,racists and imperialists ,you meneged to create an imaginary 1,5 billion people evil enemy now. your imperialist kingdom needed this politics economicly and strategicly.

well ı tell you honestly. ı admire many things west has.mainly technology,human rights and ability to live a better orginised social lifes. ı respect israeli and the jews struggle to survive.ı am sorry for the gone armenian and greek and jews of turkey, ı also think we muslims believe to the same god with christians and jews. ı believe the final day ı will be judged for the things ı did in this life. ı dont need to investigate our holly book continuously.because logic is very simple. ı believe, ı try to be good man, ı try not to commit big sins and ı thank to all conditions.

but these dont mean that ı hate arabs or ı dont feel sorry for palestein or ım ashamed of islam. we are good hearted people, we help each other, we like foreigners ,our family values are very high.ı love and support my mother father and sister for life time.

ı am not defending everything about turkey, turks or islam. There are also many things wrong.especially womens position in some areas is even worse than saudi arabia and iran.but the reason is economic. men prefer men at work. women are paid much less, first, women are fired from jobs, men are jealous and --usually after heavily drinking-smacks their wifes.women obey their husbands and suffer a life time misearable life because they cant find a job and in society they will be seen no good woman living as a single person after divorce.things like this, not that kuran orders to smack wifes. only in the rural parts and in eastern parts maybe and only maybe wrong understanding of kuran may have the raeson for the women abuses.

selling girls and children to elder men was in the past much more common. with these new laws ı am quite sure that this will completely finish . this is a new law --4 years ago--and newspapers tvs are informing people that underage sex or merriage is punished with very long term prison.

now, for a while,leave your paronia and just assume that ı have no plans to bomb christian lands and ı dont want to see all the world became muslims.and assume that great great majority of the muslims only think about living decent lifes with good economic standards. so turks in germany live there for these reasons not to make all germans change their religon to islam.ı wonder can you understand this.this way you can be a better human.

ı dont like discussing verses in Kuran . but it is not like you say. you only read one part. read the rest and before, you will see that it is not as you claim. lets look at Nisa sure 4.34

http://www.brandeis.edu/projects/fse/Pages/adifficultverse.html

"Men are qawwamun in relation to women, according to what God has favored some over others and according to what they spend from their wealth. Righteous women are qanitat, guarding the unseen according to what God has guarded. Those [women] whose nushuz you fear, admonish them, and abandon them in bed, and strike them. If they obey you, do not pursue a strategy against them. Indeed, God is Exalted, Great."

well, ı dont understand what you understand here.

so long
