But are islamists in power that bad, after all?

Reader comment on item: Who Lost Turkey?

Submitted by Alain Jean-Mairet (Switzerland), Jun 11, 2010 at 04:24

When they aren't, they try harder and thus may be even more disruptive for the country. Erdogan and his ilk at least have to deliver on several "productive" planes for staying in power and this is rather good for the country, if not for Israel and for us in Europe. And, come on, this is bad for the West very probably because of the influence of... Islam. Concretely, people in power today in Turkey are using more references of the Koran and the fable of the prophet. They are looking towards Mecca more often, they are spending more money for making Islam flourish, they are more… Muslim.

And we know that is a scam, don't we?
