Imam Mehmet from the Dalyan Central Mosque was kind enough and more than willing to be interviewed on camera about Islam, ISIS, the volatile situation in Syria and the effect that it is having on Islam in Turkey and all over the world. He has given such a valuable insight into what it means to be Muslim and the differences between the true Islam and the extremist views of supposed religious groups connected with Islam.
Many thanks to Mehmet Hoca for his openness and support for this project. He is a true inspiration for world peace.
Many thanks also to author Faye Rogan for her assistance at the interview and for her translation skills.
The Dalyan exposé has begun! The project will run until the 23rd of May and will include a lot of exciting articles and videos on our YouTube channel with interesting interviews with business owners and those who work in tourism in Turkey. We'll also be tackling safety issues and what terrorism means for Turkey and the beautiful riverside town of Dalyan.
