Turkey is heading in a good direction. It remains a shining (and rare) example in the Muslim world of a vibrant democracy with the rule of law and a thriving free-market economy. Much though Western leaders would like to turn the argument into one about Turkey, the real question is for them. Are Americans and Europeans prepared to accept Turkey for what it is: a Muslim democracy, with a different culture and diplomatic posture, but committed to economic and political liberalism?

This question proposed by The economist must be discussed. Turkey is a democracy, it’s nothing like Iran. If its foreign policy defends the solidarity of the muslim world, it reflects the desires of its population.Turkey is an example for the muslim world. If western countries treat a muslim democracy with fear and suspicion, why would other muslim nations adopt democracy?
