I fully agree with you, my friend. "Secularism" is by all means an impudent lie invented by Kemal the ghazi (i.e."victorious jihadist", "Allah's defender against the kafirs", "destroyer of Christians") first to secure ideologically his dictatorial power after the caliph had issued a death fatwa on him which provoked a bloody civil war between the Caliph's Army and Kemalists and, second, to fool the Westerners on the real nature of Turkey which is revealed by one number - 99,8% Islamic.

You either chant "La illaha illallah ..." (whether you do it in Arabic or Turkish doesn't change anything) and are trapped in Moslem irrationalism for ever saying "goodbye to secularism" or reject that Moslem bullsh... and then and only then you have a chance to be secular in any meaningful way. But Turks are expert liars while Westerners are often fools or are simply corrupt and we know all too well what happens when a liar meets a fool or a corrupt person, don't we? We hear then eulogies of "Turkish (i.e. 99,8% Islamized) secularism" in the West ! What a travesty and insult to our intelligence !
