A beautiful blond Turkish Peace Advocate joins Tamar Yonah on her 'News & Views' show, and explains a different version and idea for peace:  Turkey will take charge.
Ceylan (pronounced Jay-len) Ozbudak, who works with the controversial Islamic leader Adnan Oktar (AKA Harun Yahya), suggests that Turkey can mediate between Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, et al, for peace, and that Turkey could protect the Jewish people's right to live in Israel, as well as manage the region.  But will this grandiose plan work, and does Israel want to give up much of its sovereignty to be protected by the former 'Ottoman Empire'?
Ozbudak hosts a television show called, 'Building Bridges', with a variety of other young Turkish women.  They state on their show, that in order to ensure peace,  "we believe that this can only be done through a Turkish Islamic Union, where all the countries will be independent in their states, but they will be under one roof and Turkey will be the spiritual leader of this Turkish Islamic Union".  The show airs on A9TV , which states on its website that it "has been set up to build up love, justice and solidarity among people and our main aim is being pioneer for peace all over the world by using the unifying policy of Turkish Islamic Union. In every show you watch you will feel this policy clearly."
Ozbudak is sincere in her peace advocacy, and says that in her program, Building Bridges, "we are engaging in eradicating the misconceptions about Islam, about how Muslims should refer to people of other faiths, and people in other countries and also towards each other."   Other issues discussed are her thoughts on  a Palestinian State, the 2 State Solution, Egypt's new president, Mohamed Morsi, Hamas and Fatah unity, and the Flotilla that sailed to Gaza to try to break Israel's legal blockade on the terrorist entity.  
This program presents interesting views that you may not have heard before, and makes for a dynamic dialogue.
