erdogan is only a politician

Reader comment on item: How Turkey Went Bad

Submitted by servet cevik (Turkey), Oct 6, 2014 at 16:31

forget about erdogan.

he is only a politician who will be gone sooner or later.

turkey is important.

i did not like erdogan all from the beginning and i never voted for him.

not everybody supports him. actually the number of those who support him are less than who does not support him.

so criticise this awful politician as much as you like, we swear at him with much stronger words in turkey but here on this website you would not publish it if i explicitly wrote what i think of him :-)

but please do not merge and convert your hatred for him with a hatred for our beloved country which we love passionately.

we will get rid of this guy some day.

in the meantime please keep in your mind that this is a country with millions of civilized and hard working and intelligent and good mannered and well educated people.

we are a peaceful nation despite the attitude of our current top politicians.

do not forget, the scandinavians were the vikings at a time in history.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I think my antipathy for Erdo─čan is balanced by a clear sense of appreciation and affection for Turkey as a whole.
