Reader comment on item: Islamist Turkey Overreaches

Submitted by havas (Turkey), Jun 8, 2010 at 12:36

turkey is a country rejected by west. and now it is too late to stop her new politics . turkey chose the alternative block of eastern countries. ı personally very much aprove new alliance with russia,iran,india, brazil,china and syria. this is economically and politicly good for us. also we are disgusted by the attitudes of germany and france. usa and our benefits in this area are not parallel. ı dont think that turkey is becoming an islamist country.our new politics is for our benefit. and great majority of turks aproves this .

but letting the mavi marmara boat sail to gaza was a very big mistake. because 9 people are murdered. they were definitly not terrorists. we now know who they were. all turks hate israel now. and we simply cant take the revenge the same way. this is why ı think erdoğan will not be chosen again. but turkeys shifted politics from west towards east will not change.
