    Funny comparison. Erdogan is a living evidence of the success of Ataturk's secularist and rationalist revolution. A predominantly muslim country and every signle one opts a better living, goos salary in this world rather than forty angels in heaven :) Turkey is ruled by rightist for the last 60 years. Erdogan is not different than them. He knows that if he fails in economy he is out of office next minute. Actually, the revolution will be complete when he or his party looses one election. Until now the military was the stabilizer. That day secular Turkish public will be the executer. 90 % of Turkey don't want Islam to be part of the laws and state affairs including Erdogan. This is why I say he is the living evidence of success of Ataturk. I wish all Islamic countries had an Ataturk in their history...
