Reader comment on item: Crisis in Turkey

Submitted by yasemin (Turkey), Mar 3, 2010 at 21:26

Fetullah Gulen has really worked very hard for 35 years and now he is surrounded by his western allies. He really achieved a lot. And we, the secular Turkey learned thru him and his disciples that, life is not a direct upwards line in achieving the positive minded, productive and improved civilisation. Instead we had to be much more careful and defensive against these 5th century minded people who are after those days, which they call the golden times. The way they mention about those days is that there are sacred religious persons (which now they claim, are themselves) and the rest are their slaves to work for free, only wishing that these sacred beings would let them sit under their feet. Everything is for free labour who never complains ar asks for anything but is only happy whatever the sacred personality throws at them.

But the time is not their time anymore. Ataturk showed how it is not so and changed this for ever. Freedom is everything. All we looked for is to live as free souls and beings living in peace and work hard. He had said "Peace in Turkey and peace in the world! Since then Turkey never fights unless attacked, and still regrets being in Korea for the sake of Nato, and denied to participate in WWII and Gulf and Iraque Wars. Whatever this government says is only his and his deciple words and thoughts. We hate no nation. We can critisize but do not hate.

Fetullah is only a small, blood-sucker mosquite that bites slyly in the Dark, and hides in the dark corners of the dirtiest toilets during daylight.

Ataturk is made of the most precious humaneness.

No one can ever beat his reflect in our hearts.
