This is very important. The turkish goverment wants the world to see Turkey as a western nation. But in fact most turks especially in the smaller cities are moslem. In Ankara they forbidd people to take pictures in the subway. Cause people are praying, it to "islamic".

I'm sure that you have not been to Ankara, or any other city in Turkey. It is a western country with different faiths.

You live in the uk and probably have a rich turkish family and not the turkish perople family, here are some pics i found. The hottie blond dosent have a vail cause she belongs to a minority turk that isnt islamic, the pictures are very bad cause the camera need to be hidden cause the police confiscates. Turkey wants to appear "western" and "unarabic".

Thank you for showing us these mindless sheep. They can try to hide but in the end we see all.

Turkey is not a rich country so being the only democratic and secular one in the all Islamic geography is not enough. By making new reforms to close the gap between western civilizations and, as a result of that, we hope to be more rational & modern "with/without your understanding".

And the hijacker is a Christian Turk, imprisoned before refusing to enter Turkish Army(because he says it is Muslim army)..

Anyway it is obvious that he has mental problems, so will be who tries to give a decision about Turks by looking such an incident.

For example I am not saying that most of the Americans are child abusers or something by looking to the popular newspapers..

You are refuted by pictures and a fellow Turk on this board who tells you he is proud of praying at the train stations.
Either you are blind, you are lieing or you're a British wannabe that's never been to Turky in the first place.
You are a real peice of shit.

Mental problems??? He just wants no part in Turkey's depraved national intitutions. I don't blame him. Do you think he has mental problems because he left Islam for Christianity?
He's the most sane Turk I've read about in a long time.

So you are from one of the poorest countries in the world and the more irrational you have become, maybe you are no older than fifteen I don't know.
You cannot even describe yourself without swearing.

He's out of mind not because he says he's Christian, just because he hijacked a plane maybe you have noticed that beside your artificial anger towards Turks. I am happy that Turkey Armenians are not like you..

You will find most of the Turks trying some trick or the other to enter the E.U.Turkish extremist are going to dominate Turkey and its citizens will flee the country for E.U. states.

"The man who hijacked a Turkish plane today was an army deserter who had fled to Albania and was seeking political asylum.
Ekinci, 28, had written to Pope Benedict in August to seek the pontiff’s help to avoid military service in Turkey, the state-owned Anatolia news agency reported."

You are right, he has no objections to the visit, he just calls help from him..

Nikitaras,

I could care less about the “evidence” since what is really at stake here is not whether Muslims in Turkey pray or not. Who cares if they do? I certainly don't.

Greeks (according to the most recent survey) do two things more than anybody else in Europe.

One, they have the most sex per week than the rest of Europeans, with Croatia a close second (oh, I know I'll get more than just a few comments about this but such is life).

Two, they are the most religious country of all European countries by far. So, how is this any different than Muslims in Turkey praying? It's not except if you have prejudice and bias against Muslims in Turkey.

Perhaps people feel that praying as they do is somehow akin (connected) to the belief that they are an ultra fundamentalist Islamic country. I know that many Turkish people would be outright angry and disgusted at being compared to Muslims from other countries. Remember, Turkish people are neither Arab, nor Persian, nor Egyptian, nor Indonesian, nor North African.

So, for Mr. Seymour and his hidden shoe cam, I have no respect. If somebody were to provide proof (tangible proof) that inside the mosques in Turkey, the clerics are spouting anti-west rhetoric, then that would be a different scenario all together. No evidence has ever come up so far indicating this. So, I stand by my original comment and find these pictures (at best) amusing, at worst, an attempt to give prejudice to an entire people based on superficial issues (religion).

Nikitaras, it is my belief that whatever your posts say, you must hold steadfast to a certain axiom. That is, always treat other people’s history, culture and ethnicity with respect, always speak from an informed and educated opinion, always look at things critically and un-passionately, particularly as it relates to any issue that directly affects you, never bend, alter or outright lie (omit) proven facts and always (when possible) use discoveries, science, scientific reasoning and logical reasoning when trying to prove or disprove anything.

I have tried to do as such with the whole FYROM issue. I give no credence to the individuals who practice historical revisionism. These people are fools and should appropriately be treated as such.

On the EU and Turkey issue I would say lets stop the double standard treatment of religion within the context of Turkish (Muslim) society and European (Christian) society as I mentioned above in my post.

Best Regards,
GfC
