I labeled this as politics but it more likely belongs in the "You couldn't make it up" cathegory. According to the chief imam of Turkey saying that Islam is violent leads to...violence.
What a great way of rebutting criticsm: by proving their point! Very clever!
It's a pity, however, that it doesn't seem to work the opposite way. People have been bending over backwards saying that Islam is the religion of peace and what did they get in return? Don't get me started!
