Reader comment on item: Is Turkey Going Rogue?
in response to reader comment: What is it? It has no freedom of thought and 99,8% Islamization rate and yet boasts of being "laic and democratic"?... The Turkish wonderland!

Dear Sir,

Firstly,my name is Ayla Kosebey.What's your name? Ianus? Don'be afraid of giving your own name. Bravery is a nice wisdom.Secondly,it was your expression 99,8% Muslim country and I've told this expression as an irony to your words. It is hard to reflect people's real beliefs.In Italy people are are considered 90% Christians but only half of it real believers. It is the result of a survey held by sociologists.

You said"Kemal appointed some of his followers to act as an opposition party. When the wretched men took their task too seriously and told a few bitter truths in the dictator's face, he had them all hanged in public and went on to rule in a one-party "republic", i.e. in plain text dictatorship" You talk about 1930s.Now it is 2011...By the way,do you remember what happened in other countries in 1930s, e.g. Russia,Germany,Spain..? If you want an objective aspect,you have to consider others in general.
