Ataturk gave this duty to the youth of Turkey in his speach that he made to the youth of Turkey. You must pursue all th edemocratic venues to protect his inheritance. On th eother side Israel USA or any othr nations leaders have the duty of protecting the interests of their own people first. If Turkey (even if it is by the votes of only 35%0 elects an Islamist government, Israel and USA will have to deal with them one way or another. As an American Jew who lived in Turkey 30 years between 1950 and 1980 I am hoping that you will overwhelmingly vote for a secularist party and I support that with all my heart.
