A Muslim dream

Reader comment on item: Crisis in Turkey

Submitted by Howard E. Cook (United States), Mar 2, 2010 at 11:17

Do not "Muslims worldwide" aspire to a global caliphate? And Turkey, locus of the Ottoman State, an Islamic empire that lasted from 1299 to November 1, 1922, in every geo-political sense, looks like a divine locus for a caliphate. A Sunni could dream to die for! Suicide bombing seem is a spreading Muslim meme. Where are you, Hillary? That earthquake in Chile is small potatoes compared to this.
