"Are you in favour of accepting the surrender of those countries whose populations are at least 50%, and then placing preparatory regimes in those places until they are ready to treat people as people, without distinction. For, there is a story. A church was being built in Egypt, and the day before it was consecrated by a bishop, the word came to congregation that the wrong permits were issued. What resulted was the church was taken apart like Jerusalem was taken apart in 70 AD by the Roman legions under Titus."

are you saying that we can help the non-muslims in muslim lands by accepting their backward mentality?

this is the mafia kind of behaviour. Let's not enrage them, otherwise we will suffer.

As far as I know, the muslims will never be ready to accept others as people and what I look for is treating islam as we treat dangerous ideologies like nazism, communism, satanism.

I don't think you have grasped that what was promoted by ataturk, to be able to breach into backward, racists and suprematist people was to replace the cult of mohammed with the cult of the turks as a superior race.

The speeches of ataturk about how the turkish race is superior are all out there, and they make me shiver more than hitler.

Do you suggest this? the turks believe ataturk was the perfect man, more or less like they believe mohammed was. You totally misunderstand their perception and compare it to what WE perceive as a politician's role. If you say in the west that this politician is "perfect" everybody is laughing at you. Not in turkey...
