Erdogan says Muslims, not Columbus, discovered Americas - The Times of India
I am one of the few secular guys in DFI. I generally avoid the torrent of religious threads that are started in DFI. However I could not avoid pointing this man out. This religiously inclined Erdogan seems to take Turkey backwards. Turkey,the land of Ataturk was known for its tolerance and rationalism. Sadly Erdogan has other thoughts. Religious fanatics be they Muslim,Christian,Hindu or Parsi should be kept at bay. They are the worst threats to humanity.
P.S. @Mods I do not know if this is the right sub forum for this thread. If I have posted in a wrong sub forum I am sorry.
ppl like these are in almost all countries. it depends on the people of these countries how they take the msg.
Erdogan is from Turkey, so it should be West Asia forum. A tiny speck of Turkey is in Europe. So it could be in Europe and Russia forum. Erdogan wants to build a mosque in Cuba. It could be in the Americas forum. I guess I am going to move it to West Asia forum.
why did the turks elect him again?
ha ha, if Muslims would have really discovered America then the USA would have been an islamic mess, seriously one should know his limit before burping enough to annoy every one.
Well if the guy was from Pakistan we would have no problem in knowing where to put this idiotic musing.
Maybe we need to expand the eligibility criteria for that thread.
well that was my initial reaction too
the guy is taking the nation backwards - again like you an open observation - once certain
philosophies take over, the system, any system, whatever system will go backwards.
i don think Turks were the kind of people to migrate , other than the labour classes in
the 1960's , to germany but now we are seeing students from turkey applying to migrate even to spain
if he continues to introduce irrational thinking into his repertoire, we can expect a decline for his nation.
Could be true. Did you know that the first creatures evolving to crawl on this planet were fanatical muslims....... evidence can still be found in their creepy brain-dead leaders.
