You wrote that Israel and Turkey are the only two countries not run by sheiks and Mollahs. Israel fits but I must sadly say that not Turkey. In Germany you have access to YouTube. In Turkey it is banned. If you make a search under the name of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Fethullah Gulen (The famous Turkish Ayatollah Humeyni whom I had seen in a funeral when he was serving at the Hocazade Camii in Izmir) you will see videos wher Erdogan is on his knees in front of Gulen. You should also know that the newspaper Vakit and Zaman which are supported by the Gulen organization ar being distributed free by th eErdogan's AKP. Can; Turkey is in a very bad path since Erdogan came to power He is smart enough not to rush like Iranian style coup. He is doing it slowly or as they say in Turkish ALISTIRA ALISTIRA.
