in response to reader comment: Very Dilillusioning but not inevitable

this is exactly what it must be. we ,all people must be able to love and accept each other with our differences.it is not a good thing to assume that islam or religous people or atheists or strict secularists as a whole are bad and dangerous things. ı hope we can show especially to the other muslims that islam can let democracy work. ı also hope we can end the paronia in the west that muslims are dangerous or inferior people. also maybe the sick social and political backward traditoions in the rest of the muslim world can be cured and tamed,following turkey. for example, so called our islamist ruling party brought extremely big punishment for sexually child abusers.before there were almost no hard punishments. so how can you say that turkey is going to islamizm. if really saudi or iranians merry children, that is not islam. that means they are perverts. so let us show to the world that it is possible to live decent free lifes. because we will never stop being muslims and believers anyways.
