Huge pro-secular protest in Turkey
Posted 2/3/08
This is why I kind of like Turkey:

A Muslim country where people will actually get out and protest against extremist Islam. With that said I think they probably should give people the freedom to wear something like hijab if they want (since to ban that is sort of like anti-Islamic fascism, which is still fascism, which I don't agree with) as long as they don't slide back into being fascist in a pro-Islamic way.

true secularism is a choice to wear scarf or not, like in Dubai and not like Saudi, Turkey or France, where one extreme or another is forced on the women.

The main reason why I oppose Turkey joining the EU is because they're not in Europe. Turkey is in continental Asia...
