‘Muslims can choose own religion’- A tapdancing Mufti Goma schmoozes the ABC

 ‘Everyone is free to chose his religion’-

As long as its Islamic, of course!

* Obviously another PR stunt by ‘Egypt’s official religious adviser’- the Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa, who is, like all good Muslims, concerned about ‘the image of Islam’- as if it could get any worse. But you got to hand it to them: Muslims are rather persistent to pull the wool over infidel eyes and ears. Meanwhile, the Christian Copts, the remaining 8 to 1o million of the original inhabitants of Egypt, are living in fear of violent reprisals (‘Backlash’ yours truly) and are discriminated as dhimmi’s, subjected to ‘protected peoples’ status and forced to pay the ‘jiziyah.’

Fatwa’s:

Should ancient statues be destroyed or preserved? Should women be allowed to drive, to work, to travel without permission of men? Can boys and girls attend school together? Is it permissible to buy insurance, to wear a sports jersey with a cross design, to shake hands with a non-Muslim, to take pictures, to view family photographs? All of this has been addressed in fatwas. Recently we had some hilariously stupid fatwa’s, like the breastfeeding fatwa and the urine fatwa. There have also been fatwa’s about female genital mutilation which is practised by about 97% of Egypt’s population. But how many hundred years before such a ‘culture’ can change?

From ABC:

Egypt’s official religious advisor has ruled that Muslims are free to change their faith as it is a matter between an individual and God, in a move which could have far-reaching implications for the country’s Christians.

“The essential question before us is can a person who is Muslim choose a religion other than Islam? The answer is yes, they can,” Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa said in a posting on a Washington Post-Newsweek forum picked up by the Egyptian press.

* Sure, they can. But they will end up in jail or dead. Usually both….

“The act of abandoning one’s religion is a sin punishable by God on the Day of Judgement. If the case in question is one of merely rejecting faith, then there is no worldly punishment,” he wrote.

In most Muslim countries, Muslims who convert to another religion are considered apostates and can be subject to capital punishment.

Mr Gomaa warned however that if the conversions undermine the “foundations of society” then it must be dealt with by the judicial system, without elaborating.

* Got it. People have a right to chose Islam. If they chose another religion it ‘undermines the foundations of society’- which means Islamic law applies and that means capital punishment. Why didn’t you say so, Ali?

Attempts by Muslims in Egypt to convert to other religions have been hindered by the state’s refusal to recognise the change in official documents and in some cases have led to arrests and imprisonment.

Update:

Egypt’s top cleric denies saying that Muslims could leave Islam without punishment

‘War is Deception’- said Muhammad, and Muhammedans are in a state of permanent warfare against unbelievers and Jooozzz 1400 for years. Ali Gomaa seems to take the instructions of his prophet rather seriously. In his effort to deceive the infidels he forgot about the inevitable ‘backlash’ from his fellow Muslims, who worry about Ali being a ‘misunderstander of Islam’- of which there are many:

Ali Gomaa, the statue-hatin’, wife-beatin’, Hizballah-supportin’, Muhammad’s-urine-drinkin’ Mufti of Egypt, whom Dinesh D’Souza has praised as a “traditional Muslim” with whom American conservatives should cultivate an alliance, got some people’s hopes up by apparently denying the Islamic law mandating death for apostasy, which comes from Muhammad himself. But actually the misunderstanding comes from “secularists” who want to “distort the image” of the Mufti, who affirms the traditional teaching.

“Top cleric denies ‘freedom to choose religion’ comment,” by Ramadan Al Sherbini for GulfNews

(thanks to Dhimmi Watch)

Cairo: Egypt’s top cleric yesterday denied in a statement that he had said a Muslim can give up his faith without punishment.
Ali Goma’a, the mufti of Egypt, was quoted as saying in a posting on a Washington Post-Newsweek forum that Muslims are free to change their faith and this is a matter between an individual and God.

“What I actually said is that Islam prohibits a Muslim from changing his religion and that apostasy is a crime, which must be punished,” Goma’a said.

* There you go. Why didn’t you say so in the first place, Ali?
The alleged fatwa coincides with an uproar over the case of 12 Egyptians who converted to Islam from Christianity and now want to re-embrace Christianity.

“There is a campaign by secularists to distort the image of Dr Ali Goma’a,” a senior official in Al Azhar told Gulf News.

* Right. ‘Secularists distort the image of Dr Ali Goma’- when pointing out that he lies and denies and pulls the wool over infidel eyes and ears.

“He cannot deny punishment in this life for the apostate,” said Mustafa Al Chaka of the Islamic Research Centre.

*

A final take from Dhimmi Watch 

Egypt’s Mufti affirms religious freedom, sort of
First he said it — or at least seemed to say it: Muslims could leave Islam without fear of incurring a death sentence. Then he didn’t say it.

Actually, Ali Gomaa’s position has been consistent throughout this mini-imbroglio. He says the apostate should be killed not because he has left Islam, but because he is a threat to society. In his original statement that many understood as calling for an end to the death penalty for apostasy, he says: “If the case in question is one of merely rejecting faith, then there is no worldly punishment. If, however, the crime of undermining the foundations of the society is added to the sin of apostasy, then the case must be referred to a judicial system whose role is to protect the integrity of the society….” Now he says, “I discussed the fact that throughout history, the worldly punishment for apostasy in Islam has been applied only to those who, in addition to their apostasy, actively engaged in the subversion of society.”

In an Islamic society, of course, any apostate could be seen as “actively engaged in the subversion of society,” since he would no longer be following Sharia which is that society’s highest law, so this is no guarantee of religious freedom at all. But one could argue — although the Mufti himself is not necessarily arguing — that this should mean that apostates from Islam who live in non-Muslim countries should be left alone. When we see the Mufti issuing proclamations to the effect that Islamic apostates in Virginia need not hire armed guards for their convention, we may be getting somewhere.

“Egypt mufti reaffirms Muslim freedom of faith choice,” from Middle East Times

* The tapdancing Mufti Goma lies and denies and finds himself constricted by his own bullshit: 

CAIRO — Egypt’s top religious advisor, Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa, reaffirmed his belief Thursday that Muslims could choose their own religion after the local press carried apparently conflicting statements.
Gomaa maintained that while it would be a “grave sin” for Muslims to commit apostasy and convert to another religion, worldly punishment should only be meted out if their actions endangered society.

In many Muslim societies, there is a long-held view – not necessarily supported by scripture – that the punishment for apostasy is death.

“Not necessarily supported by scripture” is good. Some see Qur’an 4:89 as mandating death for apostasy: “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.” But not all Muslim theologians accept this as calling for death for the apostates, so it is “not necessarily supported by scripture.” Then there is Muhammad’s famous statement: “If anyone discards his religion, kill him.”

No virgins for Abdullah: Former Guantanamo detainee blows himself up.

wsuicide.jpg

Abdullah Mehsud photographed in 2004
A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner who took up arms alongside the Taliban after he was released from detention has blown himself up to avoid capture, Pakistani security forces said today.

Abdullah Mehsud killed himself with a hand grenade after he was cornered by troops at a house in the south-western Pakistani town of Zhob. He was wanted for the kidnapping of two Chinese engineers in 2004.

“My information is that (he) killed himself,” said Atta Mohammed, the head of the police in Zhob. “Thanks be to God that only he was blown up and our men were safe.”

Mehsud, 32, was released from the US detention centre in Cuba after two years in 2004 but immediately went back to violence when the Pakistani government began an offensive against the Taliban in the troubled region along the border with Afghanistan.

THE FACE OF EVIL

HBO JIHAD:

 With thanks to Atlas Shrugs and Rabbi Dov

errorist.jpg

The film is produced by HBO. So it’s presumably HBO’s publicity department that was responsible for creating and distributing a glamor-style photograph of a smiling, contented-looking young woman in her twenties to promote the movie.

That female is our child’s murderer. She was sentenced to sixteen life sentences or 320 years which she is serving in an Israeli jail. Fifteen people were killed and more than a hundred maimed and injured by the actions of this attractive person and her associates.

The background is here.

Neither the New York Times nor HBO are likely to give even a moment’s attention to the victims of the barbarians who destroyed the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem and the lives of so many victims. So we would be grateful if you would pass along this link to some pictures of our daughter whose name was Malki. She was unable to reach her twenties – Hamas saw to that.

Though she was only fifteen years old when her life was stolen from her and from us, we think Malki was a beautiful young woman, living a beautiful life. We ask your help so that other people – far fewer than the number who will see the New York Times, of course – can know about her. Please ask your friends to look at the pictures – some of the very few we have – of our murdered daughter.

They are at kerenmalki.org

And remind them of what the woman in the Israeli prison – the woman smiling so happily in the New York Times – said last year. “I’m not sorry for what I did. We’ll become free from the occupation and then I will be free from prison.”

With so many voices demanding that Israel release its terrorist prisoners, small wonder she’s smiling.

Libya & the EU: How Not to Deal With Gaddafi

Paris: HIV nurses leave Libya

Some historical context:

bainbridgetribute.jpg

After eight years of blackmail, intimidation, haggling and wrangling with Libya’s clownish dictator Muammar Gaddafi over the release of 5 Bulgarian nurses, falsely accused of infecting Libyan children with the aids-virus and sentenced to death, Gaddafi’s victims are -finally- on their way home. The EU has caved in and finally agreed to pay the jiziyah, the tribute that Europe -somehow- always paid to the Bey’s of Tunis, while Thomas Jefferson, one of the greatest US presidents, is famously on record with “Millions for defense, not one cent for tribute”-and had America’s first Navy built instead, which shot up Tripoli and Algiers 200 years ago, in order to stop the ‘Algeriennes’ from pirate raids on American merchant ships and enslaving their crews.

PARIS, France (Reuters) — Six foreign medics convicted of infecting hundreds of Libyan children with HIV have left Libya for Bulgaria aboard a French presidential jet, France said on Tuesday.
artnursesafpgi.jpg

Rossen Markov wears a T-shirt that reads “Justice for our medics in Libya” in Bulgarian and English.

“The aircraft of the French republic has taken off from Libya bound for Sofia with the five Bulgarian nurses and the doctor of Palestinian origin on board,” the French presidency said in a statement.

“The French President, Mr Nicolas Sarkozy, and the President of the European Commission, Mr Jose Manuel Barroso, welcome the agreement that has at last allowed this release and the return to Bulgaria of the nurses held for more than eight years, and of the Palestinian doctor,” the statement said.

Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry confirmed the medics had left Libya.

“They have left their airport in Libya and are now flying … We expect in them in Sofia,” Deputy Foreign Minister Feim Chaushev told Reuters.

The medics, who spent over eight years in Libyan jail, were accompanied by EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner and France’s First Lady Cecilia Sarkozy, Chaushev said. The two were in Tripoli to help release the medics, who say they are innocent.

The French statement also welcomed the setting up of improved health care for children suffering from AIDS in Libya.

Libya lifted death sentences against the medics last week and commuted them to terms of life imprisonment.

* Al Reuters doesn’t find any sympathy for the nurses, link

* Appeasement, cowardice and paying a huge ransom, to get these wrongly accused nurses released from Gaddafi’s jail, the man behind Lockerbie and the La Belle Disco in Berlin-, will not pacify this Libyan terrorist. On the contrary: Get ready for the next attack!

The Million Dollar Question

The EU, once again, caves in to a criminal bully and pays millions, many millions in ransom, to Gaddafi to release 5 wretched nurses falsely accused and imprisoned for 8 years. Appeasement is not the way to deal with terror.

When Reagan bombed Gaddafi the little desert rat showed respect. Gaddafi knows he can play with the European dhimmis. They always submit…

America’s First War With Islamic Terror

In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, […..] Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST.- TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE…. Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant … While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.”

-John Quincy Adams, from The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam

Update:

CNN’s Robin Oakley (appears to be a male) reports:

‘With the release of the Bulgarian nurses all hurdles have been removed to do business as usual with Libya, which has significant oil and gas….blablablahhh….

The 30-second sound-blib made it sound as if Lockerbie and the
La Belle Disco never happened, as if the Bulgarian nurses brought it all upon themselves and, of course, finally, the inevitable ‘if we don’t do it, who will’- BLiar, who represented himself, seemed most concerned to get a piece of the action for British firms since the Italians already had a headstart….

Where do Islam’s 72 Virgins come from?

Where do the 72 Virgins come from?
Muslims are motivated to terrorism because the Koran, the Bible of Islam, tells them that fighting non-believers is a duty of every Muslim and the only way to be certain of going to heaven is to die fighting in the cause of allah.If they can make it to heaven, one of the rewards all Muslims are promised is 72 virgins. The number of virgins is not specified in Koran, it comes from a quotation of Muhammad recorded in one of the lesser known Hadith. (“Hadith” is an Arabic word meaning traditions. After Muhammad’s death, several collections of his deeds and sayings were assembled. These collections are called Hadith and form the second most authoritative document is Islam, right after the Koran.)According to this page, the specific Hadith in which the number of virgins is specified is Hadith Al-Tirmidhi in the Book of Sunah (volume IV, chapters on The Features of Paradise as described by the Messenger of Allah, chapter 21, About the Smallest Reward for the People of Paradise. The same hadith is also quoted by Ibn Kathir in his Koranic commentary (Tafsir) of Surah Al-Rahman:

“The Prophet Muhammad was heard saying: ‘The smallest reward for the people of paradise is an abode where there are 80,000 servants and 72 wives, over which stands a dome decorated with pearls, aquamarine, and ruby, as wide as the distance from Al-Jabiyah [a Damascus suburb] to Sana’a [Yemen].”

So it isn’t the case that only martyrs get the virgins, but the only way to get the virgins is to get to heaven, and Koran is quite specific that the only way to be certain of getting to heaven is to die in Jihad.

Doctor Islamo-Rat-Bag gets more airtime on Vision TV

VisionTV gives Islamic radical more air time

Jewish groups Outraged; Vision Backpedals On ‘Regret’ To Air Preacher

Stewart Bell, National Post

TORONTO – A day after saying it regretted broadcasting a lecture by a Pakistani preacher who says Muslim scripture advocates violent holy war and the “extermination” of Jews, VisionTV put him back on the air again this weekend.
A leading Jewish organization said yesterday it would launch a formal complaint with Canadian broadcast regulators after Vision aired another hour-long talk by fundamentalist Israr Ahmad on Saturday.

Israr Ahmed Link

*

The preacher’s reappearance on Canadian television came as a surprise to some, since VisionTV had issued a statement on Friday expressing regret for broadcasting Mr. Ahmad’s lecture on violent jihad on July 14.

But despite the statement, Vision aired another lecture Saturday afternoon by Mr. Ahmad, who compares Jews to “parasites,” describes the Holocaust as “divine punishment” and calls Jews “condemned.”
“It is most troubling that VisionTV made a calculated decision to re-broadcast a segment featuring a radical Imam, whose words have the potential to incite hatred and violence,” Frank Dimant of B’nai Brith Canada said yesterday.
“It is a complete abdication of their responsibility to knowingly give a platform to this individual whose calls for jihad can clearly be interpreted by his supporters as a call to engage in terrorism. B’nai Brith Canada will be launching a formal complaint with the CRTC calling for a full investigation of this matter.”
Canadian Jewish Congress spokesman Len Rudner said he was “deeply concerned that Vision continues to provide a podium from which Israr Ahmad can speak and gain credibility.
“It’s fair to say that we know what Mr. Ahmad stands for, the question now is whether or not VisionTV wishes to associate itself in any manner with an individual who holds such a hateful agenda.”
Vision, which is available in 7.8 million Canadian households, has a strict code of ethics that forbids the broadcast of programs that could incite violence, overseas conflicts or strife between religions. Vision could not be reached for comment yesterday.

* But a little Jew hatred doesn’t count, does it?
Last week, a Vision executive, Mark Prasuhn, described “Dr. Ahmad” as a religious scholar –he is a medical doctor –-and in a recent interview the preacher acknowledged that he was not welcome in Canada. “I had no official information about a ban [from entering Canada] but I understood that I was not in the good books of the U.S. and the West, especially after 9 /11, due to my concept of radical Islam; which demands a Muslim to struggle against the prevailing corrupt and exploitative system in the world,” he said.


Mr. Ahmad heads a self-described “revolutionary” organization called Tanzeem-e Islami, which wants to turn Pakistan into a fundamentalist Islamic state and a launch pad for the global domination of Islam.

Although he is a popular speaker in Pakistan, Mr. Ahmad’s theories about a Jewish conspiracy to secretly rule the world through banking institutions have given him little credibility outside the Muslim world.
The controversy comes as Canadian authorities are struggling to deal with a growing number of Islamist extremists who support terrorism against the West. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service says many youths have been influenced by radical spiritual leaders.
Mr. Ahmad’s followers in Canada include terror suspect Qayyum Abdul Jamal, arrested last summer for his alleged role in a plot to detonate truck bombs in downtown Toronto.

Pakistan: Islam, Nothing But Islam

Silence in the Western Media: Violent clashes over East Berlin’s first mosque

That’s why this is only being reported in the ‘Middle Eastern Times’

Mysterious, isn’t it?

‘Right Wing Extremism’ is to blame, of course:

BERLIN — German police arrested 20 people including 15 far-right extremists in violent clashes overnight over the construction of the first mosque in former communist East Berlin.

Some 450 far-right extremists protested against the mosque in the Pankow-Heinersdorf neighborhood Wednesday night and fought with the police and a group of about 80 counter-protestors, police said Thursday.

Far Right Extremists like These?

hezbollah_hamas_nazi_salute.jpg


The police said that the troublemakers faced charges of assault, disturbing the peace, and resisting the police. Five counter-protesters were also arrested. Nobody was injured.

The local council in Pankow-Heinersdorf, home to the Politburo elite in the days of the Cold War, last year said that it has received complaints about the mosque and even threats to burn it down.

Some residents argue that there are no Muslims in the neighborhood and therefore no need for a mosque, while others have gone further and said that they fear an “Islamization” of the area.

Muslim authorities say that they are building a mosque in Pankow-Heinersdorf because one near the city’s Tegel airport had become too crowded and because the land, which used to belong to the communist East German state, was cheap.

Mosques are common in western Berlin with its large Turkish community, but this is the first to go up in the east of the city.

German authorities are concerned about a rise in rightwing extremism, particularly in the economically depressed east of the country where the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party has gained support in recent elections. The mosque is due to be completed in 2008. ?

* Right. Wake me up when ‘right wing extremists’ are bombing the subways or fly jets into buildings…

Why Mock Islam?

by Ali Sina

Because it is therapeutic! Mocking is a very powerful way to convince those who are unwilling to think to do it. Shame is a great motivator.

Muhammad suffered from malignant narcissistic personality disorder. His followers, to the degree that they emulate him, think like him and try to behave like him, have entered into his narcissistic bubble universe and have become narcissists by extension. This happens to all cultists. In all cults, the insanity of the guru reflects on the followers who surrender their intelligence to him and follow him unquestioningly and brainlessly.

Read it all…

Heard a good one lately?

Turkey`s ruling party after Sunday`s election triumph will want to prove that more Islam and more democracy can coexist on its route into the European Union.

Stupid is as stupid does. You can mix meat with mashed potatoes, but when you allow your culture to be destroyed by the barbarians there won’t be a place to come back to.

Wake up, people: Islam wants you dead or converted. Reverse the trend before it is too late!

Ahmaddiyyah Muslims:

the Ahmadiyyah Muslims, or of the Ismaili Shia…”
Hugh Fitzgerald explains:

The first are not considered orthodox Muslims; in Pakistan they must identify themselves on official documents not as “Muslims” but as “Ahmadis.”

The Ismaili Muslims are, according to Ibn Warraq, possibly the least menacing of Muslim groups. But they are a very small group.

The Camp of Islam, becuase of the immutable texts and how those texts are naturally received and perceived, and have been acted upon, is a permanent danger to the Camp of Infidels. Ahmadiyya Islam, whose adherents are not considered truly Muslim (and denounced as
“Qadianis”), and discriminated against in Muslim Pakistan, and despised by Muslims elsewhere, are not going to change Islam. Nor are the Ismailis, whom we all know from those old newsreels in which the Aga Khan, the head of the Ismailis, was weighed so that his followers could produce for him his weight in diamonds (or was it gold?), is not the answer either, because of the limited appeal of this not-quite-orthodox sect. Would that all Muslims were Ismailis. But very few are, and it would be folly for Infidels, at this moment in history, to drop their guard — which is already close to the ground, and pin pious hopes on either the Ismailis or the Ahmadis. Look at sub-Saharan Africa, where the Ahmadis have in the past been missionaries, helping to persuade non-Muslim black Africans to become Muslims. And then what happened? The Saudis, the Wahhabis, moved in, built their mosques and their madrasas, spread the money around, and it is now the Ahmadis who are in retreat, and those who were Ahmadis now turning to the full-monty of Wahhabi Islam. With the results we all see, and some that we don’t see — to our peril.

Londonistan: How To Do a Proper ‘Honor Killing’

‘I Was Kicking and Stamping on Her Neck to Get the Soul Out’

The practice of “honor killing” is sickening enough, but this horrifying story sets a new benchmark in depravity:

Woman raped before honor killing: court.

* Why was she raped by her relatives before she was killed in a 2 1/2 hour ordeal? Nobody seems to have asked the question. In Iran, young girls are routinely raped before they are executed, because virgins don’t go to hell in the twisted Islamo-way of thinking. But in this case nobody even asked the question. The fact that it is actually sanctioned in Islam is too bizarre for the western mind to even contemplate.

* But of course all of this has ‘nothing to do with Islam’- you Islamophobe, you! Its entirely a ‘cultural thing’ –

* Since only 99.9 % of honor killings are committed by good Muslims in the West, why tarnish the good name of Islam with such a barbaric practice?

*
LONDON (Reuters) – A Kurdish woman was brutally raped, stamped on and strangled by members of her family and their friends in an “honor killing” carried out at her London home because she had fallen in love with the wrong man.

r.jpg

Banaz Mahmod, 20, was subjected to the 2-1/2 hour ordeal before she was garroted with a bootlace. Her body was stuffed into a suitcase and taken about 100 miles to Birmingham where it was buried in the back garden of a house. Her badly decomposed body was found in April 2006, three months after the killing.

Last month a jury found her father Mahmod Mahmod, 52, and his brother Ari Mahmod, 51, guilty of murder after a three-month trial. Their associate Mohamad Hama, 30, had earlier admitted killing her. On Thursday at a pre-sentence hearing for Hama, the Old Bailey heard details about Banaz’s last moments.

Prosecutors said the three convicted men, along with two other suspects who are still at large, had carried out the killing fearing that the authorities were closing in on them. They believed Banaz had brought shame on the family by leaving her husband, an Iraqi Kurd she had been forced to marry at 17, and falling in love with Rahmat Suleimani, an Iranian Kurd.

Her former unnamed partner had raped her as well as repeatedly beating her, the court heard.

He is unnamed, you see; because ‘his privacy must be respected’

Unquestioned, this is what we’ve been hearing lately, from the Islamists who want to take ‘secular’ Turkey (which it never was) back to the 7th century. But this bullshit is what just about all of the half- witted, politically correct western media apes reported for weeks now:

Secular Turks demonstrating for Democracy

Since, in any society, the primitives will always and everywhere outweigh the others, it was important that those to whom, thanks to Kemalism, the freedom to think was granted, should never have taken those freedoms for granted. Now it may be too late. Make no mistake; there is a program by those who want more and more Islam. Its proponents are patient: look at the statements about waiting for the right moment by the sweet-reasonably sinister Mr. Gulen, waiting in his Washington-area exile, for the results of the election.

Fitzgerald: Ataturk’s legacy 

 Turkey: The Next Islamic Republic

In the end, the secular Turks didn’t do enough. They lazily relied on the army to protect them, the army that would stage a coup and come to their rescue. But an army can stage a coup only when Islam is still in a state of weakness. Now the same infiltration that has gone on in many parts of Turkish society has also been going on, still at the lower levels, of the army. And given the way in which the Islamic forces have so cleverly used their time in office to appear, quite wrongly, as a “moderate” force, a “new kind of Islam” — the kind of thing that the defeated secularists and Western governments all want desperately to believe because the truth is too unpleasant, too hard to take — one wonders if the army can indeed stage another coup.
