    Following Hurriyet, it was reported Syria and Iraq want Turkey to keep its ties with the USA. Maybe they are sincere in their desire to go West. Keeping ties with the USA means keeping ties with Israel. Is it possible that Syria and Iraq don't like the Iranian way, but prefer to keep secular? Soviet analyst says the religious people in Turkey believe in the Zionist conspiracy of the Turkish army. That lie has been planted in Turkey for a long time to overthrow Ataturk. A lie that will hurt Turkey in the long run. How do you fight a lie when people have no free speech and education? People in Turkey need a better education and freer speech?Is the AKP willing to let them have it.So far I have posted about the Armenian genocide and there is more free speech about this issue on Hurriyet and their journalists are part of an apology campaign and take part in many conferences with Armenians and Turks; so these issues are being discussed as never before in Turkey, which is brave.
