Our PM said about Ben Ali of Tunisia and Mubarak of Egypt, they should step down listening to the voices of their people. He did not say the same to Muammar Gaddafi of Libya though. Are these the special ties established between Turkey and Libya since Erbakan was PM? (Additionaly PM Erdoğan spoke against sanctions imposed to Libya).
Which of these statements is sincere, which not?
But, funny, Arabs stil hate the Turcs. And not for nothing, I suppose. “We will not leave our country to Italians or Turcs”, said Gaddafi on Television.
Turkish dreams of “Turkishness”, dreamed by our nationalists, have come to an end in Middle-Asia too. In fact Turkey opened schools everywhere in the southern split-away countries of the former Sovjet-Union, but when they turned out to be religious, the mostly secularist presidents there closed them again…..
