Quoting MarioninTurkey

 

 

 You hit the nail on the head. I was in Brixton at the time of the riots in the early 80s that lead to the Scarman enquiry: so I have first hand knowledge. If you take a minority, dont bother about the fact that many of them dont have jobs, and then put in heavy handed policing (from police in Brixton, army in SE Tky) then what do you get as a result ....? Same in SE Tky as SE London.

 

But, since Scarman and the community work that has happened, and the change in police attitudes, Brixton is now a great and thriving multi-racial community at peace with itself.

 

There´s a lesson here, I am sure...

 

 Great post Marion - I completely agree

Quoting Kaya´08

 Why do you ask about my citizenship? Is it of importance? If i was American, am i not allowed to voice my opinions on Turkish politics?

 

 Actually i find it strange too, that you talk in behalf of Turks and you are not a  Turk but Brit as you declared at another thread !

Not that its important but you were the one who announced it a, you of course can voice your opinion no matter what you are, but its strange that you voice it as a Turk where you are not

You can say i think or in my opinion instead

Ý cant be Egyptian and say we American should do. bla, bla, bla..it isnt right, because im not an American to start with !

Quoting Kaya´08

What makes Turkey so unique? What makes it different to the other mainly muslim countries? Simple. Its a viable democracy, stable, and goverened within secular principals.  Whats more? Its part of Europe, the mediteranean, boarders the ME, is part of the Caucasus and Eurasia, and yet, though it spans across the worlds most unstable regions and the most stable ones, Turkey remains a regional power, both in terms of military prowess, democracy, and economic stability. Its a beacon of hope in regions where instability is commonplace, and where muslim militants prepare to destroy Europe and all those who are not extreme. Ataturk mastered a work of art which continues to grow in importance within the world today. He retreated the army from the Middle East and former Yugoslav Macedonia balkans,  and redrew Turkey´s boarders and established its terratorial integrity, set to be, and intentionally, one of the worlds most strategic positions. He modernized society, educated us, and above all; aligned Turkey with secularism, with the west.

 

But now, the biggest question within Turkey is, especially now in the dawn of voting, does the AKP pose a threat to the art that has made Turkey the unique nation that took a revolutionary, enlightened mind to create?

 

Just 2 points as a reminder

1.The UK´s army which is a European country last time i check ÝS in Ýraq a Muslim country, destroying it and killing its people along with the American one and yes i believe that is a prove the muslim militants prepare to destroy Europe !

2.APK were already in power for the past 4 years, we dont have to predict anything so i believe that is the answer to your question, and if they are elected again, then that is because majority of people ´Turks´ want them, so do you think they dont know what is better for them and they should be dictated it ?

By whom ? Who should dictae them then in your opinion, and in benefit for whom ?

Surely if you mean the benefit of Türkiye, then her own sons and daughters would know better, and they are the one who would make that decision by the election, wouldnt you say ?

Ý fail to understand what do you seek to protect by your question?  Türkiye from Turks ?!

This has been the historical mistakes so called ´kemalists´ have been making  during the entire republic:

The people are ignorant, they are easily persuaded, they are not to be trusted and they should be led by the ´enlightened ruling class - kemalists-´
