Turkey off the deep end

So Turkey has definitively gone off the deep end. Turkey, just a few years ago, was a secular bastion in the Middle East, very Western and with a lot of freedoms enjoyed in normal democracies. It has increasingly become Islamist and radical and as it has done so, those freedoms have gone out the window. Turkey has more journalists in jail today than any other country in the world. Prior to the Islamist take-over, Turkey and Israel were close allies.

Turkey is now encouraging Syria to attack Israel and Turkey’s Foreign Minister said Turkey will “not stand by” if a “Muslim country is attacked” (by non-Muslims).

    In a word: Islamists.

  2. WipeOutHamasOnceAndForAll says :

    The big mistake is to believe that any Muslim country is like a normal non-Muslim country.
    Even the so-called secular in Turkey are, for any non-Muslim, in fact strongly Muslim, they simply do not practice as often as the religious Muslims do.

    Only one recent example concerning Turkey.
    “Sarai Sierra: Body of Missing American Mom Reportedly Found in Turkey” at http://abcnews.go.com/International/sarai-sierra-body-missing-american-mom-found-turkey/story?id=18386394
    This mother was murdered in Turkey, probably only to fight against rape! She traveled to European cities alone without problems, only when she traveled to Istanbul was she murdered by who? By evil Muslims!!

    I think this is a clear case of what Michael Totten (I don’t know if he came up with the phrase) calls Israel derangement syndrome.

    • Lynne says :

      Mike, absolutely. Here is Turkey, taking some military action against Syria, and taking this position regarding Israel.
      Turkey is now in the hands of radical, insane Islamists.
