Fethullah Gulen - sinister prophet

The secular democratic republic founded by Kemal Ataturk is being dismantled. It bodes ill for stability in the Middle East (and beyond) if or when Turkey becomes a theocracy like Iran. This article from Middle East Quarterly makes chilling reading. Ne mutlu Turkum diyene - for how much longer will that be true?
If you don't like horror stories, switch off now. Try the Simpsons, always good for a giggle.

Sorry, arkadeslerim, this couldn't wait till Friday.
