#2 I forget the terms but I remember the Turks were sort of the opposition to Wahhabism in the Sunni world. Did Wahhabism get af foothold in the Turk mind or did their version of Islam harden?

They’re the Turkish branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, ruprecht. They’re in competition with the Saudis (wahhabism) and Iran (Shiism) for the role of center of the Muslim world. Turkey funds high quality education around the world with a Turkey-oriented religious twist — previously via the Gulen schools, now directly — the Saudis fund mosques, imams, and wahhabi-style Sunday school teaching materials (and, of course, jihadis), while the Mad mullahs fund local Shiite resistance groups after getting the locals excited enough to decide to start resisting.

Or so it seems to me. Others may see more deeply into things.
