President Recep Erdogan of Turkey regards that the greatest danger confronting his nation is failure to make certain that boys and girls are praying each day whether at the mosque or in school. He has unleashed a campaign whose main focus in on ensuring that life in Turkey is like life in the Ottoman Empire. He is now insisting that children in school learn the Ottoman language. There is no doubt that one who can speak this language will find work in most nations of the world. However, the most serious aspect of his presidency is the growing number of attacks on women. Naturally, this event is not of much concern to the president of the country. Turkish women were shocked a the latest rape of a woman. Ozgecan Aslan was raped and murdered while on a mini bus which apparently did not shock President Erdogan.
Each day in Turkey women are harassed and attacked by men who regard it as their right to fondle a woman. After all, if they decide to go out on the streets dressed in clothes that appear to be seductive, a male has a right to touch and violate a body. A twenty three year old girl was run over by her boy friend, a 13 year old girl was raped. But, let’s get back to the real problem in Turkey, not enough girls are studying the Ottoman language!
