Recep Tayyip Erdogan Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Recep Tayyip Erdogan from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Everyone should unconditionally accept that Israel
is an indispensable element of the Middle Eastern mosaic.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

There exists an unmistakable demand in the Middle East
and in the wider Muslim world for democratization.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The foundations of democratic transition should be
laid in accordance with a sincere and committed strategy
that is supported by various policy tools,
and implemented wisely.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

It is essential that policy instruments be developed
that would firmly establish democratization on the
basis of social consensus and enable transformation on stable grounds.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

 

Several experts on the Middle East concur that the
Middle East cannot be democratized.

However, democracy cannot be defined as the existence
of parliaments and elections alone.

In other words, the bar should be maintained at the
level of a pluralistic and participatory democracy.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The US and the European Union needs to help in the
translation of the demand for democracy into a political will.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

But foremost, I do not subscribe to the view that Islamic
culture and democracy cannot be reconciled.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Even as we ought to accept that each country would
progress with a different method and speed toward that goal,
the standard for the expected end-state should not be lowered.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I am aware of the thesis that the United States has
long since invested exclusively in stability and this
has obviated democratic transformation in the Middle East.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

A fitting external security environment could also
play an important role in promoting social consensus
and institutionalization towards democratization.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Therefore, the observation must be explicitly made:
In the Middle East and in the Muslim world,
suspicions linger concerning the objectives of the West and notably the US.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

It is obvious that putting the Arab-Israeli dispute
on a resolution track would be an important element
of overcoming the confidence problem in the region.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

A lasting solution to this problem will have an exceptionally
positive influence foremost on the peoples of Palestine and Israel,
as well as on the region and the international community.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Similarly, gender-equality, supremacy of law,
political participation, civil society,
and transparency are among the indispensable elements
that are the imperatives of democratization.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Therefore, the question is not whether such democratization is possible,
but instead how to meet the yearning of the masses
in the Middle East for democracy;
in other words,
how to achieve democratization in the Middle East.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The Muslim world and its subset the countries of the
Middle East have been left behind in the marathon of political,
economic and human development.
For that, there is a tendency to blame others as the primary cause.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Similarly, it is argued that the culture of Islam is
incompatible with democracy.
Basically, this conventional perspective of the Middle
East thus contends that democracy in that region is
neither possible nor even desirable.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I should like to repeat what I stated recently in the
Jeddah Economic Forum in Saudi Arabia:
It won't be the religion,
but rather the world-view of some of its followers
that shall be made current.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

What should be targeted is a concept of organic,
and not just mechanic, democracy that preserves the rule of law,
separation of powers, and that is participatory and pluralistic.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Even in the Western world, one cannot argue that the
ideal has been achieved given the existence of issues like the integration,
participation and representation of Muslim citizens,
and occasional but lingering anti-Semitism.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The advanced levels which the democratic world has
attained at the end of lengthy processes may have created
the perception in the region that democracy is a distant concept;
this perception can be addressed.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

As a politician who cherishes religious conviction in his personal sphere,
but regards politics as a domain belonging outside religion,
I believe that this view is seriously flawed.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

A confidence problem exists on the part of the people
of the region who desire democratic rule in principle,
but remain suspicious of both the fashion with which
democratization is presented and the purposes of the democratic world.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

In this context, social consensus, and institutions
that embody this consensus,
must be made effective in order for democratization
not to be abused as a provisional instrument to establish
an anti-democratic regime.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Invariably, also a Palestinian state should live side
by side with Israel within recognized and secure borders
and the security and prosperity of the Palestinian
people must be guaranteed.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

My visit to the United States has also given me the
opportunity to emphasize the objective of establishing
close and intensive links between the Turkish and American peoples,
scholars and businessmen.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I regard the endorsement of both the objective and a method -
which can differ from one country to another-
of democratization by the parties in the region as
a basic requisite of democratization in the Middle East.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The purpose cannot be creating self-styled democracies,
but rather encouraging steps that are conducive to
establishing democratic rule at universal standards.
Obviously, this would be a formidable journey.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

According to this view, democracy is a product of western culture,
and it cannot be applied to the Middle East which has a different cultural,
religious, sociological and historical background.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Paramount is the need to secure human rights.
The form of rule should be such that the citizen does
not have to fear the State,
but gives it direction and confidently participates in its administration.
- Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences.
No one can eliminate prejudices -

Everyone is a mirror image of yourself -
your own thinking coming back at you.
- Byron Katie

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

not only we, but everyone will profit from it.
This is the most basic kind of peace work.
- Thich Nhat Hanh

which way his heart draws him,
and then choose that way with all his strength.
