Fantastic, absolutely stunning. A country with 99% of its population muslim. Even the so-called western democracy is heavily influenced by the religious rules. I think there is a lot to learn from the turks

You can stick your Turkish flag where the sun don't shine. Nothing can stop the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate and the rule of Shariah throughout all of Turkey.
Apostates of Islam (= secularists) will face their punishment soon enough.

I am proud of what the Turks are doing to protect their country and I only wish the people in the US would wake up and protect our nation from being overran by illegal immigrants. Everyone should contact their elected representivies to express their beliefs or join a group such as the Minute Men and Cris Simcox and help support their efforts.

Hometown Jihad: The Hamas Connection
By Patrick Poole
FrontPageMagazine.com | May 11, 2007

Last July, an estimated three hundred thousand supporters of the radical Islamic Turkish Saadet Party gathered in Istanbul to rally in support of the Palestinian terrorist organization HAMAS and their kidnapping of an Israeli soldier. Among the keynote speakers at the rally were HAMAS terrorist-in-chief Ismail Haniyeh (speaking via videophone), former Turkish Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan (political mentor to Saadet Party leaders), and my own Hilliard, Ohio neighbor, Salah Sultan.

I see that you are writing from Germany. The Germans already had Hitler, they don't need you too. Why punish them twice? Why don't you go back to one of your Islamic Caliphates? You are not wanted anywhere else in the world. Get it?

I'm against fascism in all of its forms, this includes both German and Turkish fascism. The only solution is to embrace Islam and to follow the path of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Keep in mind: Your president himself said: "Islam is peace".

That's utter nonsense. If the young woman is married and has sex with her husband, she won't be executed.

Please read more about how Islam protects women, and InshAllah you will become a follower of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

Islam does not protect non-muslim women from sexual predators. Even the father of Islam had a wife under 10 years old. Not a good example for over a billion admirers.
