Dear Dan Hare,

We are not ruled by Shaira. Not since we established Republic of Turkey. Everyone has the right to believe whatever religion he/she is. Can change his/her religion. our laws protects us from any kind of religious or any other pressure. Each individual has his or her way of believing or not believing. Women has all the rights that a man has. Women started voting before some European countries women. The big cities, and regions where the education is high, women are working in all sectors, as engineers, doctors, CEO's, writers, scientists. No man thinks that a woman cannot do anything that a man can. In poorer regionsof the country, and where education is low, old traditions are still important and women can not use their rights which the laws give them, because of the family traditions. Anyway the best solution is the education of girls. Once they gain their economical independance they stand against old traditions.

There is always a 20% who wants to live exactly as it is written in Kuran. They do not know that they should follow the essence, being an honest, good person, but they are induldged in the form, e.g. the way Arabs used to dress and lived fifteen hundred years ago.

When there was economical crises, about 35% people voted for this government, because they talked about honesty all the time and gave many promises, western countries also backed them up. And they were a completely new party, so some had hopes.

But, offcourse (which the 65% of us new in advance) they only used this religious talks to get the votes and gain power. The only mission of theirs is to be rich (only themselves) and change all the laws so that they will never leave ruling. They censorship all the media, newspapers, internet. They are after the money of the Arab countries. All they can think is money money money, never enough. And so each country, who has enough money to give and take whatever they want so cheap, loves them. This marketing of Turkey, all the values and savings of ours on the wolves' table, pleases others. But very soon, the west will learn how wrong they were. Wolves are always wolves, never loyal to anyone, but only to themselves. Who sells his country can sell anything.
