Submitted by havas (Turkey), May 14, 2012 at 12:59

is it not possible that egypt and all others can become like turkey who has religious leaders for ten years. tunisia already succeeded this. or do you think that turkey also has a hidden agenda and is a secret islamist terrorist state? problem is not islam.adopting democracy is difficult for arab countries because they dont have enough experience of this system. they were always directed in history either by colonialist countries or by their puppet dictators. real democracy was difficult for turkey also. but desire to integration to eu has helped this to happen, although now we have no desire left for eu at all.
