Leena ,   Turkey   (11.29.12)
Its ironic to see how much a country which is built on religous basis (Israel)is paying attention 2 religion in other countries...especialy Turkey...deep inside u know no one will help u as much as ardogan and...mursi...we know the game..maybe u consider to stop this funny acting..islamophopia...
2. Laena

Israel is a secular country. The population of Israel is diverse including one million Arab Muslims. They have the same political rights as the Jewish Israelis. There are several Arab members in the Knesset. Comparing this with Turkey: there are no Jewish nor Armenian members in the TBMM. Under the current election law it is possible for Kurts to win seats in the TBMM therefore they run independent. Once elected they are shunned and many times put in prison with doctored false evidences.

7. Turkey takes one step backwards
Haim ,   TA   (11.29.12)
and one step forwards to becoming a suberb of Iran. When the goverment starts issuing such statments as they want to raise a generation of religious youth, you have to question a goverment that tells people what they can belive. People should be free to decide what they belive and what not to belive. You can not and will not force religion on seculare people as they try to do here in Israel, the more laws they pass the more people will rebel against them.

10. Just fear of fanaticism
Christian ,   Suomi Finland   (11.29.12)
1# Leena - I think you might have a Finnish background according to your name? Israel is not a theocracy - but Turkey might soon be a theocracy. It seems that the islamists have already started to build a new islamist regime to come. Luckily there are still reasonable people in Turkey also - who do not support this. Being against Islamist theocracies - it is not islamophobia, it’s fear of fanaticism! All Muslims are not Islamists! By the way, we have a state Church in Finland also - but unlike most Islamic regimes, Finland is a democracy, not a theocracy - our Judeo-Christian values seems to give a good basic to a state. But still I'm under the impression - that especially Muslims! - have a greater freedom in Israel to practise their religion than they have here in Finland.
