It’s all about who YOU choose to believe – take it on trust, the BBC Trust.
First – consider the comments of Recep Erdogan, PrimeMinister of Turkey who stated that democracy was like a bus: “You ride it until youarrive at your destination, then you step off.” What other gems has he delighted us with? Islam means Jihad” “The minarets are our bayonets, the domes [of the mosques] our helmets, themosques our barracks.” “There is no moderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s that”
Now, here is Chris Patten, the incoming Chairman of the BBC Trust from a few days ago;
“So what is the pointof Europe today? For me the answer is to be found in Turkey. Europe with Turkey as a memberwould naturally be a more dynamic economy. Turkey is a regional energy hub. Ithas clout and respect in its own region with formidable fighting forces. Aboveall, Turkey is now a role model for other Islamic societies striving toaccommodate democracy, civil liberties, the rule of law, an open economy,pluralism and religion. As an EU member, Turkey would add a new dimension of massive historicimportance. Europeans would show that they could embrace an Islamic democracyand build a strong bridge between Europe and Western Asia.”
Remember please – Impartiality is in their genes.
