Further to my friend Joshua Trevino’s previous essay on religious tolerance in Turkey, there’s a related piece in the Washington Times which also provides more detail on how state secularism is driving Christian faiths to extinction and suppressing Islamic identity – provoking an Islamist backlash. Also worth reading is another essay by Josh which compares Turkey to Malaysia. I think Turkey is schizophrenic in a fundamental way regarding its identity, which is why it merits so much analysis. We Talk Turkey (ahem) quite a bit over at Talk Islam for precisely that reason.
