The Turkish military have staged coup against turkey and religious parties in Turkey many times before, some great leaders have died for this reason in Turkey. The west might think that a secularist state is the best for Turkey, but the majority of turks have realized that they need an Islamic state. The west should keep in mind that those who protest against Erdogan, is a very, very small percentage of the whole nation. But the media as always, when a man comes forth with islamic values, he is bashed down instantly, because being a Muslim is always bad in their eyes

What a filthy, disgusting race the Turks are. They should pack their belongings and head back home... ...to Mongol land.

Erdogan allowed US, Israel, Saudi & Qatar to use Turkey to stage & launch a mercenary invasion of it's arab neighbor Syria. Erdogan had met w/Assad & cordial, good-neighborly relations were on the upswing w/more trade & cultural exchanges planned. But then "PROJECT SYRIA' was announced by the CIA/Mossad & Erdogan quickly stabbed his neighbor Assad in the back & allowed radical Islamic Jihadists from all over the world to come to Turkey, mass on the border & infiltrate Syria. This isn't & was never in the Turkish people's interest since they have no problems with the Syrian people. Erdogan's a coward & opportunist.

Ergenekon case is political..because all the people who get life imprisonment are opposition against islamo fachst erdogan ..against his otochorotic rule...but this case is delibaretly set up with other cases to make people think that is not political....

Erdogan's a 1st class gangster & doesn't serve Turks well. He & his government's very actions have kept them out of the EU, even though they blame Europeans. Israel & the US tell him to jump & how high. Turks understand that & dislike how Erdogan & his cronies have surrendered Turkish sovereignty over to the Americans & their Jewish friends to the south. Turks didn't go back into their houses & they're not going to lie down & be obedient citizens of their Ottoman rulers. Turkey's a vast & great country. Turks want it to realize it's true capacity & potential in this ever-changing, modern world.

Mehmet Zengin'Erhan Timuroglu, Osman Yildirim- Bombed a newspaper HQ building who opposes to government,



So isn't that weird that bomber ( Osman Yildirim ) being released while journalist works at that bombed newspaper gets 26 years?

 

Mike Hanna 05.08.2013 18:13

Erdogan & the CIA have a much bigger problem now & that is hundreds of thousands of Turks have already taken to the streets decrying the Islamization of Turkey from a more modern, tolerant, secular state to an Islamic, Medieval fifedom envisioned by Erdogan & his posse. They can imprison opposition leaders but in Turkey, the cat is out of the bag. Turks aren't being so obedient anymore & the protests are no longer about a park but about Erdogan's undemocratic, quasi-fascist rule & his crushing of popular dissent. In Turkey, 'the cat is out of the bag' & there's no going back to a mythologized Islamic past.
