More about Turkey

Reader comment on item: Problems Aplenty - Turkey, Syria, and Egypt

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Apr 24, 2013 at 17:17

Given the time constraints of the interview, the perception of Turkey being democratic could not be challenged.

Has the situation regarding press freedom changed, Dr. Pipes? For, Turkey's reputation amongst the journalist class wasn't all that different than Russia's, under Putin, when reporters wound up dead.

Thank you for your analysis, Dr. Pipes.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Turkey is, step by step, becoming less democratic. I believe that the AKP will not let itself be voted out of office.
