There have been a lot of reports about Turks opposing their army being part of the peace keeping force in lebanon. A lot of them refer to the desire to avoid fighting fellow Moslems. This surprised me a bit, as I understand that Turkey is aggressively secular. Also, being fellow Moslems doesn't seem to have led to the Kurds being treated with kid gloves. (I also understand that there's not too much love lost between the Turks & Arabs, and I know Turkey & Israel are allies.) Is religion the main reason for these protests against joining the peacekeeping force? Is it just the kind of rent a mob you get in most western cities?
