in response to reader comment: Jewish Prophets Words Bear Fact in the Coming Middle-East Wars

It is not sunni Turkey,it is the Republic of Turkey, a secular country with a large minority of Alevi (a shiite off shoot) within the sunni majority.Our government is obliged to treat all its citizens equally and it is illegal for our country to declare war on purely religious considerations.

May,Allah,god,Tengri,shiva,Buddha save us from the religious fundamentalism of every kind and may humanity stop consulting ancient books in order to determine foreign policy.
