Long, long ago when Turkey was still controlled by the military, I mention that Turkey was heading to an Islamic state and CM said no, never happen, the military would stop that from happening.

What the CM didn't notice was the Islamist were opening schools that trained the young who would later go into the military, they were also first on the scene in every emergency giving free aid while corruption hampered any government aid, and when they won local elections they ran clean governments. Tactics straight out of the revolutionary handbook.

It paid off, but can Erdogan complete the final stretch:

"Erdogan Leads Turkey to the Precipice" – Pipes in The Australian, #1429
D. Pipes Mailing List <dplist@danielpipes.org>

October 17, 2015
http://www.danielpipes.org/16224/erdoga ... -precipice

[N.B.: The Australian's title is "Would-be dictator Erdogan leading Turkey to the precipice" and its version uses Australian spelling]

The Republic of Turkey is undergoing possibly its greatest crisis since the founding of the state nearly a century ago. Present trends suggest worse to come as a long-time Western ally evolves into a hostile dictatorship.

The crisis results primarily from the ambitions of one very capable and sinister individual, Turkey's 61-year old president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. A career politician who previously served four years as the mayor of Turkey's megacity, Istanbul, and then eleven years as the country's prime minister, he forwards two goals hitherto unknown in the republic: dictatorship and full application of the Shari'a, Islam's law code.

Bye, bye Turkiye ....

Image

We visited both Turkiye and Greece in 1999 ... and had a good time ... inhaled the 1500 year old dust in Hagia Sophia ... walked in the ruins of epheses ... found the Turks to be much happier and friendlier than the Greeks ... was surprised about that ...

But glad we visited when we did ... would not go back to either place these days ...

The good news is the Turkiye people voted for King Err Dog Ann ... so they are getting what they asked for ...

Quote:
... Turkey's biggest newspaper, Zaman, has condemned its takeover by the authorities in a defiant last edition published just before police raided it.
Saturday's edition said Turkey's press had experienced "one of the darkest days in its history".
Turkish police raided Zaman's offices hours after a court ruling placed it under state control, but managers were still able to get the edition to print.
Zaman readers have protested against the takeover outside the offices.
Police dispersed the demonstration, numbering about 500 people, with tear gas and water cannon. The newspaper's supporters chanted "Free press cannot be silenced".
A number of the journalists returned to work on Saturday, but some of them tweeted that:
they had lost access to internal servers and were not able to file articles
they were not able to access their email accounts
the newspaper's editor-in-chief Abdulhamit Bilici and a leading columnist had been fired
One reporter, Abdullah Bozturk, said attempts were also under way to wipe the newspaper's entire online archive. ...

If they are taking over major newspapers it has already begun. Hello theocracy.

The elections themselves were funny. Err Dog Anne's supporters went around (illiterate goat fucking) countryside giving money and talking about Allah etc. and they managed to get a huge number of votes from the least Islamic hillbillies - especially by promising that they'd bring in pain for the evil university going West-lovers who didn't wear hijabs and were holding hands and kissing in public.

Now holding hands and kissing in public are forbidden as Turkey is racing to implement Sharia law.

Also any demonstrations are met as if they were rebels and the Islamic police force enjoy every opportunity to split some university students' skulls. You don't need university degrees to understand Islam and will of Allah! The only subject needed at universities is Islamic theology which aims at proving the benefits of Sharia law.


Oh and whenever West media mentioned Turkey and how they were beating university students to death they remembered to pay tribute to Turkey's government by repeating the official narrative and not forgetting to add "during Erdogan's rule Turkey has had great economic growth" - attributing all of the growth to the dictator.


But indeed it's weird that any of this is even hitting the news what with the West's weak spot with it's Islamic allies that are immune to criticism.

Erdogan is probably figuring that if there is going to be a Caliphate than it should be based in Istanbul just like the ones of old were.

Erdogan has his way.

Turkey will take back some of the refugees but not really - instead of shipping them to Greece they now get an official deal with EU that all EU countries will accept these people as immigrants. So nothing really changes.

But somehow Erdogan and EU heads managed to spin this as "great concession" for Turkey and in return EU will help Turkey join EU while turning a blind eye to Turkey's Islamization and increasing authoritarianism.

EU itself is a joke that never upheld any of it's ideals.

I think it's awesome to have Turkey as a NATO member. It's been such a winning success.
