You promise us a lot.

But -alas- "this particular user" is badly disappointed as you dismally fail to keep your promise. ;( It's very hard for him to deal with a "promising argument" which fails to ever materialize.

But courage, Turk! Don't be afraid of long replies! Show us all the unfathomable depth of your "knowledge"! It will serve your purpose much better than what you're doing now - exposing yourself inadvertently to your own criticism of "baseless judgmental claims" only because of your laziness and its good neighbour - "moral" superiority.

I leave the rest of your comment as useless without a reply and wait for your further Ataturk&Allah-inspired revelations of how Turkey's Islamic harlot's secular virginity can still be operationally restored.
