They have made themselves rich through unscrupulous business deals if you read the Turkish newspapers. I guess that is why those reporters are in jail, for revealing the deals. In Turkey, you get in trouble if you speak the truth, whether about the Armenian genocide or crooked and corrupt politicians. Can we speak the truth here in Israel or the USA? Iran and Sudan must be seen as holding out the promises of more riches. I suppose I am materialistic also; but I am honest in my business dealings and without prejudice, a moral character. Morality always succeeds I think.
