I'm sometimes not sure whether or not stuff that pops up on the Atlantic frontpage is available to non-subscribers (you should, naturally, subcribe) but this December 2004 Robert Kaplan article about how the rise of the moderate Islamist AK Party in Turkey is a good thing is really good and well-worth digesting in light of their recent electoral victory and some of the fretting over it I've seen.

We want to hear what you think about this article. Submit a letter to the editor or write to letters@theatlantic.com.
