MEHMET: we are not European, we are Asian. It is the snobbish Turkish elite that claims that Turks are European and they see that this is the only way to modernize Turkey, just ignorants. But theres more to it,Mehmet? Maybe being 'Asian' takes away from those Europeans who are not even muslim and would never accept an Islamic state. Thats what you want Mehmet,to go from democratic to theocratic?
