Daniel was the only one on the panel that recognized Turkey's change of course.

Reader comment on item: West-Muslim Relations since 9/11

Submitted by Truthsayer (United States), Dec 17, 2010 at 23:29

The Turks have decided to unhitch thier cart from Western Civ team, maybe they no longer care to enter the EU.

They want to prove that Muhammedian Philosophy trumps secularism, and free market militarism. The only thing that may throw a monkey wrench into Daniel' s vision of Turkey's future is a civil war in Turkey.

I hope that the complexities of the region causes the Islamists to fail.
