I got news about Turkey for you, Dr Pipes

Reader comment on item: Turkey's Islamist Turn, 10 Years Later

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Dec 19, 2012 at 02:25

Dear Dr Pipes,

You worry about Turkey becoming Islamist day by day. Today, I got news for you. Imagine if we were to force Muslims high-schoolers in US to answer questions on Christianity in their SAT tests. Imagine what will CAIR do. Well, in Ergodan's Turkey University entering students will have to take a test on religion. So if you are a Jew or Christian in Turkey, you will now have to know Islam to become a doctor or an engineer or an author or a plumber. But non-symmetry and hypocrisy are the names of the game in those parts of the global village.
