    ...which some seem to be, especially here, very badly in need of! Turkey is a secular democracy, with an actual governing Party, the AKP, that certainly has some phllosophical Concepts, which spring from the Religion of Islam,-but falls far short of being an Islamist Party! They can rather be characterized and described as being concervative! After all, there are also European Parties, such as the CDU or CSU in Germany, that carry the word Christian inside their Party Names and are phlosophically influenced by Christianity! Would they therefore be charactarized as being radical or fanatic Christian Parties? I don't think so! They are rather described as being concervative Parties! Well,-its's no different in Turkey! I think that some of our Friends, writing here, should take a closer look at the democratic political realities in Turkey! One point to add here: Not everybody who criticises Israeli Actions criticises Jewishness,-and all are certainly not Anti-Semetic or Jewophobe,-I know I'm not! Not all Israeli's sit in the Cabinet, or are part of the Government,-as far as I know! Shalom!
