Earlier during his reign, a ‘Donmeh’ notable from Salonika – Sabahettin Karasu had asked the Sultan to let the Jews establish a homeland in Palestine; in return, he said, the world Jewry would take care of his enormous foreign debts. The Sultan did not take a second to reject the otherwise ‘attractive’ offer. Ironically, it was this Karasu – Who conveyed Kemal Pasha’s message to the Sultan that military has dismissed him.
The Young Turks seemed to have been taken up by the idea that by imitating the West – almost blindly – and importing wholesale western values and mandates – even if some were not compatible with genius of the people – they could make Turkey a great and modern power. Now after over 90 year of Kemalists’ imitation of the West have got Turkey’s 80 million population into $187 billion debt – highest amongst the 57 Muslim nation-states.
