This piece is posted by an Israel news site. Before I let you read it, I want to say a thing or two.

There are a lot of people who immigrated to Israel from Turkey after foundation of the state. If you wonder from where and how Jewish people came into Turkey in the first place, well I don’t want to turn this into a history lecture so I immadeatly  cut to the chase, they are accepted by Ottoman Empire after they exiled. (Like in the case of Polish) They have lived in peace with local muslim community and the state causing almost none recorded uprisings. And their grandsons or granddaughters still carry both Turkish and Israel passport. I have several friends who has both citizenships. Therefore, as long as Israel state hate Turks, this is not the situation between Turksih and Israel people. I came accross this ‘news’ and found it interesting. One last note: The things you are about read about Mavi Marmara is just about pure hatred and false information.

Micheal Jackson Memorial In Midyat Turkey

When Micheal Jackson passed away people were very sad all around the world. But I believe only few have performed religious rituals for him.  Hold on now…

When he died, an interfaith dialogue foundation, ‘Mıhallemi interfaith dialogue’ , from Mardin – Midyat Turkey performed salaat for his soul. This was just the first step.

When you visit Mardin, now you can see a memorial which performs ‘moon walk.’  11 people worked for the memorial for 6 months. There is no other like this one in the world.

The Country and The Blog

Turkey is one of the most interestingly funny places of the world. It is such kind of a country that I really have a hard time describing even in my mother language. It is unique. That’s for sure. But unique does not  neccesarily mean  good and precious all the time. I believe you can do the math…

This blog is intended to explain more about this large, funny, interesting  country without any racism, prejudice or politics. By politics, I mean that there will be no judgment in terms of politics. But there will be hell of a politics discussion. Politics, I believe,  is a tool, which can be  used to abuse and dispraise. In this regard I will not use politics to justify myself. Long story short, there will be no propaganda for Turkey, or against Turkey. Just unbiased opinions of a engineering student who is highly interested in ‘reading’ dynamics of his own country with objectivity. As in the picture above, this blog will be a photograph from space.

I am not going to delimitate the topics. There will be sports, personal experience, daily life, politics, history etc… Whatever comes to mind …

So, this is the end of first post. I hope you will enjoy this blog.

Cheers.
