Why Ardogan is successful?!! Ardogan’s success comes from thebalancing and the harmony between thehuman side in which he deals with people byand can easily contact them, and the politicalside by which he can benefit the people hepresents. He listened to all people directly, he built political formations in the most far parts in Istanbul. He says “The long distance is not important, what is really important is to gather our hearts”. He says ”We were always by the poor side and defending their rights. We never entered their houses with disgust, but with sadness. We ate with them and listened to them.

Davos 2009 Ardogan has many firm stands against Israel the most popular one is what happened in Davos 2009Ardogan said to Israeli President shimon peres : “ Mr. Peres, you are older than me. Your voice is very loud. I know that you are speaking aloud because of the requirement of a sense of guilt. My voice will not be that loud. About murdering, you know killing very well. I remember the children who were killed on beaches and I remember your prime ministers said they feel happy when they attack the Palestinians . I feel sorry when people claps after what you said because a lot of people had died . I think it is wrong and inhuman to clap after what happened.” The moderator didn’t let Ardogan complete what he wanted to say. So he left the panel, accusing the moderator of giving Peres more time than all the other panelists combined. And he said that he will never come to Davos again .
