This is a late comment but I have to say. Erdogan does not represent all of Turkey. Turks like me have one and only one role model and that would be Kemal Ataturk, the nemesis of Erdogan. Arabs are a different culture for us. Erdogan who is seen as a threat to the secular policies of Ataturk is making big mistakes by meddling in Middle Eastern politics.
