What beautiful words.  It's hard for me to accept that they came from a muslim.  I worked with them for 4 yrs. in Saudi Arabia and the above is so completely uncharacteristic.  This man was an aberration.  God bless him.

Ataturk was a brilliant aberration. He founded a SECULAR state to modernize Turkey. His model was the church/state separation of the U.S. and French constitutions.

For anyone interested in this foray and many others that have dealt us the hand of cards we are now playing, I recommend the following book-

A Peace to End All Peace

Thanks for that posting John. As you said, Anzac now almost serves as a remembrance of all service people and their sacrifice. I now see where your army streak comes from.

Went on the St Johns Ambulance run on Sat;  the Ulysses club put it on every year at Anzac weekend.  Last ride before rego put on hold for five months this time, in case it all pans out for the Tattly Rappet.  Kev is a goer at this stage also.

Muzz I did check the dates for you but forgot to let you know. As far as I can see the Tattly Rappet is set for the week after the ChCh swap meet.
