ı dont know what is going on in iran. but in turkey situation is much more complicated ... True, today Turkey is directed by religous people.but islamizm means political islam. which means the ultimate goal is to reach sharia law. sharia laws do not match with todays modern life and todays human rights. it is possible to live more conservatively but it is not possible to live according to sharia laws. everybody knows this,including the government of turkey.so,simply there is no possiibility for turkish people to live under sharia laws.there is no such disere.only 10% wants this.actually even long times ago,in ottoman period turks did not live exactly under sharia laws as you people think.

but some world powers want to show islam as a dangerous cult which threatens israel and west.only when israel grows as big as they wish and a new energy found instead of oil, imaginary islamic threat will end.than we will be good people again.this is how western white christian imperialist mind works.
