Deniz, Deniz, Deniz,

when was the last time a church or temple was built in Turkey? And yet you claim you're happy with seeing a church in your country. Most of the churches in Turkey were built before you islamic ancestors attacked Turkey. I see lots of construction here but not one site being built is a church. Why? Because islam does not allow the influx of other religions. Yet everywhere in the western, non-muslim countries mosques are being built all the time.

Your willful hypocrisy is one of the reasons the Swiss people voted the way did.

Here is another example of willful muslim hypocrisy: A Turkish friend and I were surfing the net and we came across an article about Angela Merkel the German chancellor who told the muslim immigrants to assimilate into German culture or get out. My friend called her "racist." I asked my friend "Let's pretend 2 million Jews moved to Istanbul and refused to assimilate. Let's pretend they built their own neighborhoods where Turks were not welcome. Let's pretend they started demanding that the Turkish government tear outlaw azaan because they found it offensive. Let's pretend these Jews started demanding that public school classes be taught in Hebrew and that Turkish children were forced to learn about Judaism. Let's pretend these Jews started gaining political power and started to make changes that affected your Turkish culture. Let's pretend that every time you refused to accept their demands or told them to go back to where they came from they called you a racist or bigot. What would you do?

My friend, without hesitation, replied "we would kick their asses and those that were not killed would be sent back."

I said to her "Ok, that is your right. This is your country. Angela Merkel is not kicking anyone's ass. She is telling muslims to assimilate to German culture or to leave because the Germans love their culture just like you love yours."

My friend replied, almost like a robot "She's still a racist."

This is willful hypocrisy. All muslims are infected with it regardless of their ethnicity. The source of the infection can only be islam so you must understand that the one-sidedness and lack of understanding is on YOUR part. Not on the part of the "racist" non-muslims. islam does not practice what it preaches. Remember: what's good for the goose is also good for the gander.

I love Turkey and her people but I wish to God all of you could get free of the yoke of islam. It is the one thing that is keeping your country from stepping forward into the 21st century.
