There are no problem-free countries in the world. Some countries find solutions to their problems. Others keep delaying, causing crises to swell. Turkey is one of those countries which has succeeded in offering solutions to its problems. By choosing a multi-party system, Turkey has demonstrated how unique it is in comparison to other countries in the Middle East. Despite not having any petroleum or other natural resources to rely on, it has proven itself successful in funding the cultivation of qualified professionals in numerous sectors.
Turkey is the only Muslim country to accept European Union norms and decisions by the European Court of Human Rights as superior law.
It must not be forgotten, that this bridging country, with one leg in Europe and one in Asia, creates a synthesis in both its political as well as socio-cultural existence. "Daily Sabah" aims to relay the developments of this intriguing country to the English- speaking audience.
When watching political developments in Turkey, one must always remember Bernard Lewis's following words: "Turks might make wrong decisions when facing problems but their final decisions are always the correct ones."
Turkey, which has been through countless political and economic crises, coup d'états and problems rooted in the Middle East, will once again solve its problems by focusing on its "final decision" of democracy.
While reading about developments in Turkey in "Daily Sabah," the country's ability to find solutions to its problems in a geography shared by Syria, Palestine and Egypt must not be overlooked.
