"The statesman who would be sultan must make certain he does not lose his own state". One must stop here. Both the secular elitists and Islamist's in Turkey have one common point of interest: the eternal sovereignty of the Turkish Republic. I can assure you that the Turks will not cede or allow their sovereignty to be questioned without turning the Middle East into a hell hole. Turkey has the soft power and military power to do this. One must be careful when questioning the sovereignty of the Turkish Republic. The Turks are known to fiercely defend their State and there right to self-determination.
