    It is good that the Turkish Religious authorities have made this statement. However, we ought not to be bamboozled by what it said. The Turkish government — Ottoman or Republican — has never believed in the equality of all faiths. One need only look at the history — including the most recent — of the Greek Orthodox Church in Turkey too see that systemic discrimination has always been present. Nothing in this statement will change that.

    Sounds like tearing down the Ottoman era carvanserai and mosques in Mecca made the Turks a little [annoyed].

  • Maybe Turkey should restore its Caliphate?
