Why has pork been sold in Turkey for years and now it's banned? There is only one reason, to impose Sharia law.

Sharia law in regards to halal is much more encompassing than just closing down some butcher shops. The entire food industry will be controlled by Muslims because they will be the only ones who can ensure their laws are obeyed. Food stores and manufactures, farms and every foodservice business will be under the thumb of Sharia. It will be a sweet victory for the Islamists and there will much more of this control in the future unless it is stopped.
