Watcher's Council Results, 9/26/10

The Council has spoken! Here are the results of our weekly Watcher's Council contest.

Both of our winners examined the problem of Islam - or more properly, Islamism - and its incompatibility with freedom, secular mores and democracy.

This week's council winner was The Razor for Does Islam Tolerate Secularism? , an excellent examination of the subject that looked at both Khomenist Iran and the latest developments in increasingly Islamist Turkey, the closest thing the Islamic world ever had to a secular democracy.

Our non-council winning post was Who Lost Turkey? by Caroline Glick, which covered exactly what is happening in Turkey under the Erdogan government...and why you should care.

Both of these are must reads.

Here are the full results:

As always, congratulations not only to the winners but to the participants.
