Lebanon, not Turkey is the democracy model

Turkey is not a model democracy, it has a crushing majority and a dismal understanding of religious diversity. It has yet to acknowledge its ethnic cleansing of Armenians, or its brutalities towards Greek-Cyprus. Armenians and many oppressed minorities fled to Lebanon over the century. It's the only truly diverse country in the region, and it's shaping up to be the only true model of democracy. If Turkey and the west bond, it will simply be a meeting of colonizers.
