Turkish writer and journalist who describes himself as classical liberal; regular columnist for Al Monitor (on-line news site giving the pulse of Middle East) and Hürriyet Daily News (the oldest English-language daily in Turkey); critic both against Islamic extremism (his arguments being built from a Muslim point of view) and Turkish secularism; has published in NY Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, Forward, Newsweek, Foreign Affairs, National Review, Islam Online, etc.; author of Islam Without Extremes: A Muslim Case For Liberty, Rethinking the Kurdish Issue: What Went Wrong, What Next?, The Islamic Jesus. How the King of the Jews Became a Prophet of the Muslims; lectured at TED on Faith versus Tradition in Islam; (info source: wiki); I would say he is a nuanced conservative, with interesting opinions that deserve study, whether you agree with them or not.
