We must understand it is the continuous contacts with the Western civilization (from crussades to Israel) which has created problems for the Muslim world.

Muslims never had any murderous dictators like Saddam , Assad , Shah of Iran , Mubarak or Mustafa Kemal had they not been inspired by the Western concepts of nation-state and language based ethnic nationalism.

So it is for good of Turkey and the Muslim world that finally the connection with the West can be over once and for all.

It is for all these pro-West elites in the Muslim world to see that though they may be willing to burn their last quran and unveil their last woman but still the West would not treat them as equals as converts.

That is actually the difference between treatment to converts when it comes between Islam and the Western civilization.

Islams treats it's converts on an equal manner like Mohammad Ali whereas in the West the converts would still be slaves as epitomized by people like Nonie Darwish and Walid Shoebat.
