Ataturk was NOT Christian/Jew

V. Mizrahi I guess there can be NO good Muslims?

You so foolishly suggest that quote:---

"Ataturk, a secularist (and a likely Christian/Jew from Greece forced to convert into Islam as a kid) "

For your information Ataturk's father was a Turk, his mother was half Macedonian. Both his parents were Muslim, his mother wanted Ataturk to attend a religious school but his father did not allow it and sent him to a westernized school in the Empire.

More Muslim bashing I guess by you. I mean the absurdity of it all, imagine there being a good Muslim, he must have been Christian/Jewish and converted to Islam..[sarcasm].

Ataturk was ALWAYS Muslim.
Submitting....
