Reader comment on item: Is Turkey Going Islamist?

Submitted by Fahri Şahin (Turkey), Oct 30, 2005 at 07:47

You can easily observe that Turkey is the only country that can compsose Islam with democracy. No matter how harsh is the criticism either from the country citizens or from abroad, Turkey is on the right path to extend love and sympathy to all people around the world. The people who are unskillful intention tellers are in extreme trouble of being completely mistaken. For AKP government is the real pioneer of democracy in this country. It is really a tragic case that quasi social democrats are in favour of despotism and doesn't hesitate to play a part of evil plan of getting rid of a real democrat government.

I agree that there has been a great transformation in this country. However in this transformation AKP has got the democrat part while quasi democrats has got the despotic part. Oh good fate! We have seen these days as well.
