11 Eylï¿½l 2001 tarihinde gerï¿½ekleï¿½tirilen insanlï¿½k tarihinin en bï¿½yï¿½k terï¿½r saldï¿½rï¿½larï¿½nï¿½n ardï¿½ndan dï¿½nya yeni bir dï¿½neme girmiï¿½tir. Bu dï¿½nem ï¿½slami deï¿½erlere yaklaï¿½ï¿½mï¿½n yï¿½kseldiï¿½i ve Mï¿½slï¿½man ï¿½lkelerin gï¿½ndemde olacaï¿½ï¿½ bir dï¿½nem olacaktï¿½r. Uzun sï¿½redir Batï¿½ ve ï¿½slam medeniyeti arasï¿½nda kurulmaya ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½ï¿½lan diyalog, 11 Eylï¿½l saldï¿½rï¿½larï¿½ sonrasï¿½nda artï¿½k bir zaruret haline gelmiï¿½tir. Batï¿½ ï¿½slam'ï¿½ tanï¿½ma ve anlama sï¿½reci iï¿½erisindedir. ï¿½ï¿½te bu sï¿½reï¿½te nï¿½fusunun %99'ï¿½ Mï¿½slï¿½man olan, aynï¿½ zamanda Mï¿½slï¿½man ï¿½lkeler arasï¿½nda Batï¿½lï¿½ deï¿½erleri benimsemiï¿½ belki de tek ï¿½lke konumundaki Tï¿½rkiye'yi ï¿½nemli bir liderlik gï¿½revi beklemektedir.

Doï¿½u ve Batï¿½ Arasï¿½ndaki
Kï¿½prï¿½: Tï¿½RKï¿½YE

Tï¿½rkiye ï¿½slam dï¿½nyasï¿½ ile Batï¿½yï¿½ bir-araya getirebilecek yegane ï¿½lkedir. ï¿½ncelikle demokratik ve laik yapï¿½sï¿½yla Tï¿½rkiye, Batï¿½nï¿½n deï¿½erleri ile ï¿½slam'ï¿½n deï¿½erlerinin ï¿½atï¿½ï¿½madï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nï¿½n somut bir ï¿½rneï¿½idir. Bununla birlikte sahip olduï¿½u tarihi miras Tï¿½rkiye'yi doï¿½al olarak liderlik pozisyonuna yerleï¿½tirmektedir. Her iki unsur da dï¿½nyanï¿½n iï¿½ine girdiï¿½i bu yeni dï¿½nemde Tï¿½rkiye'ye hayati avantajlar kazandï¿½rmaktadï¿½r. Bu avantajlar zaman zaman Batï¿½ dï¿½nyasï¿½ndaki araï¿½tï¿½rmacï¿½lar, stratejistler, devlet adamlarï¿½ ve gazeteciler tarafï¿½ndan da dile getirilmektedir. ï¿½rneï¿½in, ABD eski baï¿½kanï¿½ Bill Clinton 1999 yï¿½lï¿½nda Tï¿½rkiye'ye yaptï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ ziyarette Tï¿½rkiye'nin 21. yï¿½zyï¿½lï¿½n lideri olacaï¿½ï¿½ yï¿½nï¿½ndeki gï¿½rï¿½ï¿½lerini ï¿½u ï¿½ekilde aktarmï¿½ï¿½tï¿½r: "Tï¿½rkiye, Avrupa, Asya ve Afrika'yï¿½ iï¿½ine alan milyonlarca kilometrekarelik bir alanda, dï¿½nya siyasetinin merkezi olan bir bï¿½lgede sï¿½z sahibi bir ï¿½lke olduï¿½u iï¿½in 21. yï¿½zyï¿½lï¿½n ï¿½ekillenmesinde kilit rol oynayacaktï¿½r."

Dï¿½nya Mï¿½slï¿½manlarï¿½na ï¿½rnek Model

Amerikan yï¿½netimi, Tï¿½rkiye'nin Mï¿½slï¿½man dï¿½nyasï¿½na ï¿½rnek olan ve bu vasfï¿½ ile ï¿½slam dï¿½nyasï¿½nï¿½n lideri olabilecek nadir ï¿½lkelerden biri olduï¿½unu sï¿½k sï¿½k vurgulamaktadï¿½r. Savunma Bakanï¿½ Yardï¿½mcï¿½sï¿½ Paul Wolfowitz'in California'da dï¿½zenlenen Dï¿½nya ï¿½liï¿½kileri Konseyi forumunda yaptï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ konuï¿½ma bu yaklaï¿½ï¿½mï¿½n ï¿½nemli ï¿½rneklerindendir. Wolfowitz konuï¿½masï¿½nda, ï¿½spanya Kralï¿½ Ferdinand'ï¿½n zulmï¿½nden kaï¿½an Yahudilerin, Osmanlï¿½ tarafï¿½ndan kucaklandï¿½ï¿½ï¿½na dikkat ï¿½ekmiï¿½ ve sï¿½zlerine ï¿½ï¿½yle devam etmiï¿½tir:
"Bu olay gï¿½steriyor ki, katï¿½, zalim bir dï¿½nemde Mï¿½slï¿½man camiasï¿½ dï¿½nyanï¿½n en hoï¿½gï¿½rï¿½lï¿½ ve geliï¿½miï¿½ camialarï¿½ndan biriydi. Beyazï¿½t'ï¿½n davranï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ 'Kullarï¿½n arasï¿½ndaki farklï¿½lï¿½klar, Allah'ï¿½n bir lï¿½tfudur.' ï¿½eklindeki hadiste de vardï¿½r... Sorunlarï¿½nï¿½ yenen ve son yï¿½zyï¿½ldaki ï¿½erï¿½evede geliï¿½meye devam eden Tï¿½rkiye, Mï¿½slï¿½man dï¿½nyasï¿½na ï¿½rnektir." (Hï¿½rriyet, 7 Mayï¿½s 2002)
Tï¿½rkiye'nin mirasï¿½ï¿½sï¿½ olduï¿½u Osmanlï¿½'yï¿½ tï¿½m dï¿½nyaya ï¿½rnek kï¿½lan-Wolfowitz'in de dikkat ï¿½ektiï¿½i gibi- ï¿½slam ahlakï¿½dï¿½r. Zulï¿½m gï¿½ren insanlarï¿½n adaletine ve hoï¿½gï¿½rï¿½sï¿½ne sï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ndï¿½ï¿½ï¿½, ï¿½eï¿½itli dinlerden ve ï¿½rklardan insanlarï¿½n birarada huzur iï¿½inde yaï¿½adï¿½klarï¿½ Osmanlï¿½ ï¿½mparatorluï¿½unun yï¿½neticileri Kuran'da haber verilen, "Ey insanlar, gerï¿½ekten, Biz sizi bir erkek ve bir diï¿½iden yarattï¿½k ve birbirinizle tanï¿½ï¿½manï¿½z iï¿½in sizi halklar ve kabileler (ï¿½eklinde) kï¿½ldï¿½k. ï¿½ï¿½phesiz, Allah katï¿½nda sizin en ï¿½stï¿½n (kerim) olanï¿½nï¿½z, (ï¿½rk ya da soyca deï¿½il) takvaca en ileride olanï¿½nï¿½zdï¿½r. ï¿½ï¿½phesiz Allah, bilendir, haber alandï¿½r." (Hucurat Suresi, 13) ayetiyle buyurulan ahlakï¿½ dï¿½stur edinmiï¿½lerdi. Kuran'a ve ï¿½slam ahlakï¿½na sadakat Osmanlï¿½'yï¿½ asï¿½rlar boyunca ayakta tutan, ï¿½ï¿½ kï¿½taya nizam veren bir gï¿½ce dï¿½nï¿½ï¿½tï¿½ren en ï¿½nemli unsurdur. (Harun Yahya, ï¿½slam’ï¿½n Yï¿½kseliï¿½i)

ï¿½ki Dï¿½nya Arasï¿½ndaki ï¿½lke

The New York Times gazetesinin Tï¿½rkiye temsilcisi Kinzer, Crescent and Star: Turkey Between Two Worlds (Hilal ve Yï¿½ldï¿½z: ï¿½ki Dï¿½nya Arasï¿½ndaki Tï¿½rkiye) adlï¿½ kitabï¿½nda ve 11 Eylï¿½l saldï¿½rï¿½larï¿½nï¿½n hemen ardï¿½ndan, CNN televizyonunda yaptï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ stratejik deï¿½erlendirmelerde Tï¿½rkiye'nin konumuna bir kez daha ï¿½ï¿½yle dikkat ï¿½ekmiï¿½tir: “Tï¿½rkiye'nin oynayabileceï¿½i role dikkat ï¿½ekmek istiyorum. Kï¿½sa vadede, Amerikalï¿½larï¿½n ve Batï¿½lï¿½larï¿½n kendi askeri ï¿½slerini kullanmalarï¿½na izin vererek onlara destek olacaktï¿½r. Ne var ki uzun vadede oynayacaï¿½ï¿½ rol ise ï¿½ok daha hayati bir ï¿½nem taï¿½ï¿½maktadï¿½r. Eï¿½er Tï¿½rkiye kendi iï¿½ sorunlarï¿½nï¿½ aï¿½abilirse, Mï¿½slï¿½man demokrasisinin ï¿½arpï¿½cï¿½ bir ï¿½rneï¿½i olarak karï¿½ï¿½mï¿½za ï¿½ï¿½kacaktï¿½r. ï¿½slami hassasiyetleri radikalizmden ayï¿½ran bir mï¿½knatï¿½s gï¿½revi gï¿½rebilir. Mï¿½slï¿½man dï¿½nyasï¿½ ï¿½zerinde bï¿½yï¿½k bir etkisi olabilir ve bï¿½ylelikle tï¿½m dï¿½nyayï¿½ deï¿½iï¿½tirebilir.“ (CNN International, 9 Ekim 2001)

Tarihe Yï¿½n Vermek

Bu deï¿½erlendirme, Tï¿½rkiye'nin geï¿½miï¿½i ve mirasï¿½ gï¿½z ï¿½nï¿½nde bulundurulduï¿½unda daha da anlam kazanmaktadï¿½r. Altï¿½ asï¿½r boyunca dï¿½nyaya nizam veren Osmanlï¿½ ï¿½mparatorluï¿½u'nun mirasï¿½na sahip olan Tï¿½rkiye iï¿½in bu misyonu gerï¿½ekleï¿½tirmek zor olmayacaktï¿½r. Dï¿½nyanï¿½n etnik ve dini ï¿½eï¿½itlilik bakï¿½mï¿½ndan en renkli ve idaresi en gï¿½ï¿½ bï¿½lgelerini asï¿½rlar boyunca hakimiyeti altï¿½nda tutan Osmanlï¿½'yï¿½ ayakta tutan gï¿½ï¿½, ï¿½zï¿½nï¿½ Kuran ahlakï¿½ndan alan manevi deï¿½erler olmuï¿½tur. Milli ve manevi deï¿½erlerine sahip ï¿½ï¿½kan, sahip olduï¿½u medeniyet mirasï¿½nï¿½ iyi deï¿½erlendiren ve yï¿½zï¿½nï¿½ her zaman Batï¿½ya dï¿½nï¿½k tutan bir Tï¿½rkiye, tï¿½pkï¿½ geï¿½miï¿½te olduï¿½u gibi gelecekte de tarihi yï¿½nlendirenler arasï¿½nda yer alacaktï¿½r.

ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½k, hemen hemen her
toplum ve ideolojiden kiï¿½inin hemfikir olduï¿½u ve savunduï¿½u bir kavramdï¿½r.
ï¿½nsanlï¿½k tarihindeki ï¿½atï¿½ï¿½malarï¿½n, savaï¿½larï¿½n ï¿½oï¿½undaki amaï¿½, ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½ï¿½ï¿½
kazanmak olmuï¿½tur.
Batï¿½ dï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ncesinin ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½ï¿½e verdiï¿½i anlamï¿½ ï¿½ï¿½yle ï¿½zetleyebiliriz:
ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½k, insana, diï¿½er insanlar (toplum) ya da devlet -veya baï¿½ka
herhangi bir kurum- tarafï¿½ndan hiï¿½bir kï¿½sï¿½tlama ve baskï¿½ yapï¿½lmamasï¿½dï¿½r.Bugï¿½n
Batï¿½ toplumlarï¿½nï¿½n iï¿½inde bulunduklarï¿½ toplumsal yapï¿½, modern Batï¿½
felsefesi tarafï¿½ndan tarifi yapï¿½lan "ï¿½zgï¿½rlï¿½k" kavramï¿½nï¿½n,
insanï¿½n kurtuluï¿½unu saï¿½lamadï¿½ï¿½ï¿½nï¿½ gï¿½stermektedir.

Okullarda, bilimsel kaynaklarda ve bir kï¿½sï¿½m medyada, teori ispatlanmï¿½ï¿½
bir gerï¿½ek gibi sunulmakta, pek ï¿½ok insan da bu nedenle evrimi hiï¿½
sorgulamadan kabul etmektedir. Oysa her geï¿½en gï¿½n geliï¿½en, paleoantropoloji,
antropoloji ve mikrobiyoloji gibi bilim dallarï¿½, sï¿½zï¿½nï¿½ ettiï¿½imiz
yaygï¿½n inanï¿½ï¿½ï¿½n aksine, evrim teorisini sï¿½rekli yalanlamaktadï¿½rlar.
Evrimi ispatlamak iï¿½in 150 yï¿½ldï¿½r aralï¿½ksï¿½z sï¿½rdï¿½rï¿½len ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½malar,
teoriyi ï¿½ï¿½rï¿½tmekten baï¿½ka bir sonuca varamamï¿½ï¿½lardï¿½r.
Bu gerï¿½eï¿½e raï¿½men, evrim teorisinin bu denli yaygï¿½n bir biï¿½imde
savunulmasï¿½ ve insanlara empoze edilmesinin tek nedeni ise, teorinin
ideolojik yï¿½nï¿½dï¿½r.
