10. There are ignorant people in Turkey
No,Turks are conscious and care about the problems of people in the world. I think half of Europeans and Americans do not know anything about other world countries. They are doing food wars but they do not care about people who died fasting on Earth and they do not know anything about history. Refugees are not wanted in Europe and xenophobia is too much. When a Muslim commits a crime, everyone thinks he is a terrorist, but when he kills a racist Muslim, the media says he's crazy. Hypocrisy...
