The protests are fueled by the growing distaste in Turkey for the ever expanding Islamic dictatorship of the AK party of Prime Minister Erdogan, according to commentators an attempt to reinstate Turkish hegemony in the region, leading eventually to a Neo Ottoman Caliphate under Turkish rule. There is reason to assume Erdogan has the blessings of his friend and ally, Barack Hussein Obama,Â whom he recently visited.
What started this time last week asÂ the kissing protest – “(Update) Islamisten steken kussende koppels neer”, has now become the beginning of a revolt! A comment on the site of CNN says it all:
“Please CNN get over here and show the world what is going on! We are oppressed! The governing party silenced the press. They can’t write, they can’t talk, everything is censored… Gezi Parki became the symbol of every one who stands against corruption and oppression. With new laws and regulations Turkey is on the brink.. We don’t want to become another Iran”.
Where are the atheists, the left, the freethinkers, the anarchists, the gay movement, the feminists, the seculars? Where is the press, the media? Their self censorship is a slap in the face of the brave Turkish resistance. Everyone is bowing for the terror of Islam.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan will hold a key meeting today for the Middle East peace.
Tayyip ErdoÄŸan, “God’s Gift to Turkey”
For Erdogan,Â Â “Islamophobia” and Zionism are crimes against humanity on par with fascism and anti-Semitism.Â He also called Israel a “terrorist state”. Â Â His Islamic government has adopted the Muslim BrotherhoodÂ doctrine of “gradualism.”Â (More)
“In the Islamic world, democratization has led to an increasing role for theocratic politics.” â€” Fareed Zakaria
The Turkish Minister for EU Affairs, Egemen BaÄŸÄ±ÅŸ, has declared that Prime Minister ErdoÄŸan is a gift sent by God to Turkey and to humanity. But what do half the Turkish electorate do – as well as the rest of humanity – when the gift is unwanted?
Insolent Turks and useful idiots in the West threaten Germany:
“… those who mess about withTurkey do notÂ have an auspicious end”….
“The country (Turkey) would overburden the European Union because of its size and the structure of its economy,”
Turkey has reacted angrily to the Vatican following a statement from Pope Francis describingÂ the mass killings of Armenians during World War I as “the first genocide of the twentieth century”Â during a meeting with a delegation led by Patriarch of Cilicia of Armenian Catholics on June 3.
