Turks have long admired the sultan, Mehmet II, for his military triumphs, especially his capture of Constantinople, now known as Istanbul, in 1453.

 Turkey has never been colonized, so it remained as an independent nation after the fall of the Ottoman Empire.

Istanbul is a vast place. There are very conservative neighbourhoods, there are places that are upper class, Westernised, consuming Western culture.

 In the 20th century, the Muslim world created a vision of religious nationalism. Turkey  had to be ethnically Turkish. Kurds, Armenians, other minorities didn't have a place in such a vision of a nation-state.

 The name Muhammad is the most common name in the world. In all the countries around the world - Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon - there are more Muhammads than anything else.

 I see Turkey's future as being in Europe, as one of many prosperous, tolerant, democratic countries.
