    Ataturk was a brave, intelligent and honest man who fought to save his country from an imperialist invasion and then established peace with all former enemies of Turkey at a time the word "peace" was not at all popular. He criticized Hitler and Stalin before they started their carnage, at a time nobody was predicting the mayhems that would follow. He worked very hard to initiate the modernization of Turkey with the hope of it to become a just and secular country. Tayyip is the exact antithesis of all of these above. He is an islamist opportunist with dictatorial tendencies. A very dangerous man. This referendum was scum-bag. From outside it looks like a democracy package, in truth its aim is to weaken the secular infrastructure and the army.

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
