Lets fear all Muslims! I don’t think so Mr. Trump~!

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

Listening to Donald Trump makes me feel like playing “Spot the difference.”

Donald Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States, until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” I read it in disbelieve, “Is this guy for real?” I though to myself.

Does he and his fan club even know where Muslims live? For example, do they know that most of the people in Turkey are Muslims? Do they know that Turkey is our ally and although one of the founders of the European Union? Are they aware of the fact that the last G20 meeting was actually in Turkey, right after the terror attack in Paris?

Donald Trump, who would like to start another witch hunt -this time it would be Muslims- and once again we would hunt and shunt people for their religion and their believes.

So…let me tell you a story, a true story:

Once upon a time in 1881 a special child was born. He was the child of a housewife and a lumber trader and his parents named him Mustafa. Later he was given a second name Kemal (meaning perfection  or maturity), by his mathematics teacher.

Mustafa Kemal was a very talented and intelligent young Muslim man; he went to a military school and later on to a military academy, where he graduated in 1905.  After graduating from the military academy he pursued his military career with the Turkish Army in Syria. He was a member of the Young Turk revolutionary movement which deposed the Sultan in 1909; he took part in the war of 1911–1912 against Italy in Libya and during the Second Balkan War in 1913 he became the chief of staff of the army in the Gallipoli Peninsula.

He was one of the greatest leaders this world has ever seen. Mustafa Kemal became the first Prime minister of the modern Turkey. His surname, Ataturk (meaning “Father of the Turks”), was granted to him in 1934 and was forbidden to any other person by the Turkish parliament.

What do you think about that Mr. Trump?

I have no religion, and at times I wish all religions at the bottom of the sea. He is a weak ruler who needs religion to uphold his government; it is as if he would catch his people in a trap. My people are going to learn the principles of democracy, the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will; every man can follow his own conscience, provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him against the liberty of his fellow-men.

This is one of Ataturk’s most famous quotes. Almost 100 years ago he understood, that government and religion should be separated at all times. (That goes for every religion, if I might add).

Istanbul, the largest city in Turkey (historically known as Constantinople and Byzantium) is called the gateway to Europe, but although the gateway to Asia. Back then, young Turks and other Ottoman intellectuals asked the question of the position of the Turkish empire regarding the West (meaning the Christian Europe). The West was a symbol for intellect and scientific ascendancy and provided a blueprint for the ideal society of the future. The question was quickly decided, Turkey looked to the West.

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was a very smart man, a leader who is loved until this day. The people in Turkey are Muslims, but they cannot EVER be thrown in one pot with the radical, fanatics of ISIS or other similar groups of serial killers.

Saying that all Muslims are bad and have to be feared, is so utterly wrong and so highly stupid. Here is another one of Mustafa Kemal Ataturks great principles he lived by:

Mankind is a single body and each nation a part of that body. We must never say “What does it matter to me if some part of the world is ailing?” If there is such an illness, we must concern ourselves with it as though we were having that illness.

 


 

The name of Ataturk brings to mind the historic accomplishments of one of the great men of this century, his inspired leadership of the Turkish People, his perceptive understanding of the modern world and his boldness as a military leader.

  • John F. Kennedy, speaking in Washington D.C. (10 November 1963), on the 25th commemoration of Ataturk’s death.

The United Nations declared 1981 “The Ataturk Year in the World” to celebrate the centennial of his birth.


 

“Banning Muslims from entering the U.S.” is a brutal offense on so many people in this world. I feel deeply ashamed that we have a Presidential candidate, who is so misinformed about so many things.

Around 62% of the world’s Muslims live in South and Southeast Asia, with over 1 billion adherents. The largest Muslim population in a country is in Indonesia, a nation home to 12.7% of the world’s Muslims, followed by Pakistan (11.0%), India (10.9%), and Bangladesh (9.2%). About 20% of Muslims live in Arab countries.

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk went out of his way to reach out and establish peace, good relations, and trade with former enemies such as Greece, Australia, and Russia. He mediated international disputes, worked for peace, established goodwill among his neighbors. Source Wikipidia/Wikipidia   (www.wikipidia.com  Here is the link for the Republicans. who seem to have a hard time finding the facts these days).

In 1934 Ataturk wrote a tribute to the Anzacs killed at Gallipoli. 70 years later, in 1985 the Turkish government recognized the name “Anzac Cove” for place on the peninsula where the Australian and New Zealand troops landed on April 25, 1915.

In return for this gesture, the Australian Government established the memorial garden, around the Kemal Ataturk Memorial, that honors the heroism and self-sacrifice of the Turkish and Anzac soldiers who took part in that bitterly fought campaign. This is the only memorial to an enemy commander.  This inscription appears on the Kemal Ataturk Memorial, Anzac Parade, Canberra.

“Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives… you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours… You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.”

      • 12 years over here. Anyone living in this country that has an IQ of over 40 (aka 10% of the population) has seen what people will do for their president and the power of stupid people in large numbers.

  1. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was an admirable man… He clearly understood the principles of the modern secular state… Trump should keep on doing money and business, he is good at it… I even agree with Bush when he said so in The GOP debate… he is a chaotic man, and his philosophy regarding muslims is obviously fascist-nazi…
    He also want to isolate mexicans by building a wall… it would be a great wall, he said.. I was astonished… But the worst thing is that most of Republicans endorse him… so…
    All my best wishes. Aquileana ★⭐

  2. I wrote yesterday that it no longer matters whether or not this gentleman wins the Republican nomination, as he has shifted the debate so far into ugliness that formerly horrible ideas are now embraceable. Ted Cruz is the more palatable Trump. That is why I published about him yesterday.

    • I read it Mark and will reblog it. I don’t even know what to think any more, do you know what I mean. For me, as an European, it is hard to understand. Day after day I sit there in front of my screen and wonder why we haven’t learned.

  3. I would like to believe — need to believe — that the GOP is not irresponsible enough to actually nominate this asshole. I refuse to write about him because all it does it give him more PR, which I think is what he wants. I don’t believe he thinks he has any chance of actually getting the nomination or being elected to anything, but he is a publicity hound. I refuse to give it to him. But he makes me incredibly angry, too.

    • I can’t be quiet, mainly because I come from a country where too many people have been quiet way back then.

      I read a comment yesterday “No worries all of Trump’s fans are the same people who watch the Jerry Springer show.” I laughed hard and shook my head.

      He can’t be the Republican nomination. People in Europe and other places in the world are signing petitions now, to ban Trump from the entry to their country. The UK and Cananda are just two of them.

      Do you know what I hate most? The way he makes us look. Like we all would be a bunch of uneducated, trigger-happy hillbillies, with a one digit IQ, running around hating everything that is different.

      Why don’t they just throw him out of the Republican party. He is a such disgrace for U.S.
