Religious Turks tested by wealth

ISTANBUL: Turkey´s religious businesspeople spent years building empires on curtains, candy bars and couches. But as observant Muslims in one of the world´s most self-consciously secular states, they were never accepted by elite society.

Now that group has become its own elite, and Turkey, a more openly religious country. It has lifted an Islamic-inspired political party to power and helped make Turkey the seventh-largest economy in Europe.

And while other Muslim societies are wrestling with radicals, Turkey´s religious merchant class is struggling instead with riches.

Typical pro-akp neo-con crap...70% of the wealth in Turkey is in the hands of islamist businessmen created by Ozal and the preceding governments, so what "rich" are they struggling against?

 

 

 

who are these so called elites? is my grandfather who barely made a living out of his crops and cattles an "elite" just because he has never voted for akp, thus for the interests of america and all the other bloody imperialists?

 

if the richest is not to be called "elite", then who is?
