Hi my friend , Baran!

Thanks a lot for your kind words. But frankly, I am no expert in the field. For some reasons I just happen to be interested in the subject. That's all. You write :

> The real questions is "Why does Daniel Pipes side with Turkish generals rather than Turkish people?" ...<

The only competent person to answer it would be Dr. Pipes himself, of course. I don't know why he does it. Probably he hopes the militarists being dependent upon the US arms lobby will not turn against Israel while the imams will ? Anyway, I think it is not so hard to guess why the US government does side with the militarists. All lawyers side with their paying clients even though they know perfectly well their clients are arrant criminals while their opponents are inncoent victims.
