Statistically what Mr. Alon says might be right but comparing Atatürk with RTE(Recep Tayib Erdoğan) implicitely hints a wider comparison between the two. Both have two legs, two eyes,two ears that is all the two have in common. Atatürk was a revolutionary who fought an Independence war against the British, Greek, Italians and then brought historical reforms. What did Mr. RTE do? RTE is trying to put the clock back and in the process doing whatever they could to throw mud and, put to trial officers, publish what normally should be considered as Military secret in any country footage from Drones to blame soldiers in one incident against the Kurdish rebels-PKK. Israel had and still has a problem the Turkish Government and the ruling party. That kind of comparison puts the other half as well as against Israel.
