One thing that’s caught my attention since September 11 is that we never hear about any Turks in al-Qaeda. If I remember correctly, there were no Turks among the attackers, and I haven’t read about any specific al-Qaeda members who are Turks. I really wonder why that is. Turkey is a Muslim country, but it’s one that enforces separation of church and state with an iron fist. It has its fair share of poverty, violence, and terrorism, and there are plenty of Islamist elements in the country that wish to replace the secular government with an Islamic government. So where’s al-Qaeda? Just pondering here.
