"Still sitting in Turkey thousands of journalists, intellectuals, opposition politicians in jail - often with no chance of due process." - Read So today on SPON .
But that seems even now, as in Turkey, an opaque power struggle within the Islamic new elite rages (the Gülen movement and Erdogan seem to compete against each other), do not seem to care or bother.
Erdogan sees himself - ie Turkey - now once again foreign conspiratorial powers suspended, and he probably believes that not only itself, but is also more than a grain of truth in it. Without condoning the West, at least the US, Gülen is living there, well connected, his troops have hardly set against the "Sultan" in transition. Toleration can of course quite likely with the approval, support, yes even a view as semantically hardly distinguish behalf action.
Why now but that?
Turkey has under Erdogan - many say the boom of recent years is purely debt-financed, based on a construction and property bubble - but lately a lot of the dirty work in attacking Syria made, in the spirit of the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and Qatar: What has the now evil perpetrated at once?
I do not think it really is about the most massive corruption and taking advantage of the ACP-squad, because that was certainly not only rumored lately.
That it now but probably not really about this, helps Erdogan also not much should a significant proportion of allegations agree collected. He is under tremendous pressure, trying with great effort to crack down.
Puzzling me is how several hundred specialists shall have determined so secret even against Prime sons and other Untouchables, without timely Erdogan got wind of it and was able to intervene.
"Just as this applies to Zionism, anti-Semitism and fascism, it is essential to consider Islamophobia as a crime against humanity." - So Erdogan at a UN conference to promote dialogue between religions and peoples in February in Vienna. The outrage was great.
And in November 2012, he had referred to Israel as a terrorist state who carries out ethnic cleansing in Gaza.
Something not to say even now times when Sultan prefer. Remarkably well the chutzpah to presuppose that Zionism will considered as a crime against humanity, fascism (so einbegreifend in the international standard diction even and especially Nazism) for comparisons zoom pulling, and even anti-Semitism, then, to ask the Islamophobia next door ,
Yes, outraged, shocked they all were. But they did not quite know what to say. You could Erdogan's not consign equal in the loony bin or to show trial in the Hague.
No, Mr. Erdogan, you were some time useful, but not something you do. It helps nothing, that your statement is logically inconsistent abundant in itself. First, will you not lead the people in this case, rather before our eyes, and secondly, the Zionists, leave of their grace the Prime Minister, to a considerable extent in the first place on the post he holds, such insubordination already not go on principle because there could indeed soon everyone come.
Extent, therefore, Erdogan also influential Jewish circles behind its current problems - as well as those already with the Gezi Park - suspected he may thus have quite right.
But it will not contribute MSM medium of the West so easily into the game, because AIPAC referred Although even as the most influential political lobby in the United States, but not every Tom, Dick and Harry must also say that, especially not on special occasions.
Yes, I'm afraid, Mr. Erdogan, as you face "to the world", "the world community" fighting a losing battle.
In our example in Germany. B., in whole Springer press, there is no job or a contract conditional dismissal for people who not stand up for Israel and of course the Zionist ideology. Since you have ever expected no sympathy or understanding.
It has even raised the issue of Iran / embargo break / money laundering in connection with acceptance of advantages into play. The US intelligence and the Mossad will know what went. The only question is what they deliver. If the want is what they want on the same day on Reuters, dpa, etc.
Maybe it is supposed to be only a violent fillip, and we will let you continue to govern, you wofern be properly cleansed in the important things behave.
You can treat you and your people then continued generous forms of bribes, that's not a particular problem.
Yes. Or is it just really is crunch time for you. Then you have, in my opinion, as far as I can tell from the outside, bad cards.
