Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by Ben (United States), Sep 9, 2010 at 17:49

Please pay attention to what is happening in Turkey. Premier erdogan "a moderate muslim" said few years earlier that mosques are their (muslim's) forts and minarets are their bayonets. He also said that democracy is like a train, ride it until reaches to desired destination. Erdogan and his train AKP is almost arrived to their destination. AKP came to power democraticaly (at least it appeared that way) In seven years they weakened the secular military, silenced the media by intimidation and now they are very close to take high courts and judiciary under their control. Not too far in the future the world will have another Iran in the Middle East. Mazel tov.
