We have started out with the philosophy ‘Best wealth of a human being is Knowledge’. Aiming to bring personalities together - who pay attach importance to researches, innovations and scientific accretions and willing to share their knowledge end experiences with public, we wished to start our publication life.

Think Local, Act Global
According to our mission throughout the history, in our internal and foreign affairs we must have a political strength which has dominant reasonable logic. Temporal Slippery acts in politics will block the development of this community. It is impossible to think that provocateur movements which result in internal chaos and infighting, is beneficial for this country. It is not possible to built future by uttering non-sense, misleading words and by confusing the public. By exploiting the sentiments of public; to prepare suitable ground to make this community stranger to internal and foreign affairs means to jeopardize the future. This point of view is effective in tribe and clan management. It is the production of shallow vision for future.

Atatürk From My Point Of View as a German
When I was asked to perform a speech under the name “Atatürk in German vision” in November by a school in Izmir, it was a honorable work but also impossible for me to do. There is no such a view of Atatürk in German vision. Hence I could only be able to express my own personal feelings. I would like to summarize what I told there, but if I happen to fail in expressing those ideas fully due to lack of knowledge, I want you to understand me.

Atatürk in German Vision
What Is My Identity A Turk Or A German?
Many of our Turkish siblings are influenced by the words ''FOREIGNER'' in Germany, and ''GERMAN'' in Turkey.
The Turks living in Germany are permanently asking themselves this question. When they are identified as ''YOU ARE GERMAN !'' by the homelanders of the country where they live in, they feel themselves stranger living abroad.They also feel themselves stranger when they go to their homeland to remove their longing for family or for a vacation on their holiday-hearing the word ''YOU ARE GERMAN''.So there is a dilemma.Who are they; a German or a Turk?
This situation which has also spread out in our country today aliena-tes most of our friends from Turkey; whereas,there is a longing for motherland that we all have in common.We are presented to be the ones getting more estranged as being mixed up in two co untries.Well, we are all Turkish siblings!
