Turkey has some great scientists. Unfortunately there is not much appreciation for their work in Turkey. Turkish business is after quick profit therefore they don't value innovation and research,they value copying existing items. But I strongly agree that the Islamists must go and secularists should lead Turkey on the path that Ataturk prescribed. Furthermore; political parties themselves should democratically themselves ending the dictatorship of their leaders and turn the parties to the people where the unsuccessful leaders are replaced.
