Turkey now is not just turkey for itself Turkey is a country for the Muslim ummah. Now, you know what Turkey is such a beautiful combination of ancient Ottoman architecture, and beautiful masjid. And this incredible modernity. And I had no idea about any of this before I moved here three years ago, SubhanAllah. But one thing's for certain there is a man at the center of modern Turkey. And we as Muslims need to know what he's about. And that person is tired, rigid, Urdu and don't believe everything you've heard about him. Have a look at this. URL handling. You're being all me. A raw man, you'd want me, Bernie, me D, E, gunner and Buddha kind of story. I believe that it is

The canal is 21 meters long and 275 meters deep. The canal is

New lines will also be added in the cities of bursa and gassy into Turkish government aims to adopt the iron system throughout Turkey due to lower operating costs. The earthquake was an unquantifiable disaster for Turkey and its people. What struck me was Edwin and his team refused to quantify it in just economic terms.

Just being this power monger who only does things to empower remember this despite huge nationalist pressure from increasingly racialized political landscape, Edwin has refused to turn his back on the 4 million Syrian refugees that sought safety here. That's not a vote winner to me that as much as anything else shows that tired one has that rare thing in modern politics a conviction politician
