Egypt & Turkey a scene for encounter of secularism and religion
What we see in Egypt today, is a result of Arab spring. It’s not far from what takes place in Turkey, because in both countries, there is secularism that standing against religion, something that happened more than one Century ago in Europe.
It looks like that Islam has a tendency to take over all Pillars in the communities and occupy every important position. In all countries where Islam took over power, it worked against itself; In Iran, Egypt, Tunis, Libya and Turkey.

The most democratic Muslim country failed
Turkeys Prime Min of the most democratic Muslim country failed to be democrat.
Since Recep Tayyeb Erdogan took office in Turkey, it sounded that moderate interpretation of Islam could join democracy, but what happen in Turkey in the last two weeks, showed us something else.
It is partly due to the abuse of power generally; which becomes centralized sometimes in the hand of a person like Chavez, representative for left front in Brazil, other times at Erdogan representative of a moderate Islam in Turkey with a wish to Islamizing the country.
The power getting sometimes blocked of dictators, they could have an extreme Shia interpretation of Islam mixed with Social pressure and terror such as we have seen in the last three decade in Iran. In other front, another interpretation of Shia-Islam how called them-self Alawis, has blocked the power in Syria with a secular view.
The question is; how long takes time until people in the Muslim countries understand that religion is a private case not a political system to Governance.
