Reader comment on item: Who Lost Turkey?
in response to reader comment: But are islamists in power that bad, after all?

--- 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 moreā€¦ Muslim ----
