Turkey [by Peter Pedant

- by Peter Pedant

24% of Turks supported suicide bombings against Israelis.
31% of Turks supported suicide attacks against Americans and other Westerners in Iraq and say they are justifiable.

As an aside, only 6% of Turks view Christians very favourably, a MAJORITY 52% view Christians unfavourably.

2004 pew source

Turkey's Prime Minister, Erdogan is an Islamist loon who's pro-Islamist sympathies earned him a conviction in 1998 for inciting religious hatred after publicly reading an Islamic poem: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and Muslims our soldiers…”

Thank god for the military keeping him in line... for the moment.

‘Kaide’ (‘Al-Qaeda’) Magazine Published Openly in Turkey

The Turkish political weekly Tempo, along with some major Turkish daily newspapers including Milliyet, Aksam and Cumhuriyet, reported that the Islamist Turkish terrorist organization Great East Islamic Raiders Front (IBDA-C) [1] has begun publishing a new weekly, Kaide ("Al-Qaeda" in Turkish) which openly praises its namesake and idolizes Osama bin Laden. Kaide, which looks like an Al-Qaeda bulletin and includes all Al-Qaeda announcements, is published legally in Istanbul and sold at newsstands across Turkey.

It is worth noting that according to Aksam, [2] Kaide is distributed by Yay-Sat, which is Turkey’s largest magazine-newspaper marketing and distribution network. Yay-Sat is owned by the Dogan Media Group, which includes mainstream media outlets in Turkey such as Hurriyet, Milliyet, Radikal, Turkish Daily News, Dunya, and Tempo, as well as TV channels such as CNNTurk and Kanal-D.


I would however agree that there is a contrast and difference in support for islamic terrorism but I'm not so sure it is for the reasons you have described. Turkey is an Islamic Trojan horse on the verge of entering the EU for the first time since it was halted at the gates of Vienna in 1683. It is in Turkeys interest to distance itself from its support of terrorism. Terrorism is just a tactic, Jihad is fought on many fronts and using many tactics.

It should also be borne in mind that when the first Islamic state was established in Madina, the Muslims were very few, less than around 5% but within 5 years they had conquered Mecca and brought the entire Arabian peninsula under Islamic rule.

In 1924 only 3% of Germans were Nazis. A small minority of the German nation actually voted for Hitler. The remaining majority adhered to the regime out of fear and peer pressure. The lesson of history is, that if an ideology or a doctrine is ruthless enough, and if the adherents are willing to act as terrorists, a 3% minority will dominate and control politically any country.

I would dearly love to see a sincere poll asking Muslims if Jihad by means other that terrorism is justified and acceptable. I won't bother holding my breath waiting for an honest reply though.
