The phenomenon you have noticed, which has also been called Creeping Sharia, is going on not just in Turkey, but wherever Muslims have a presence, whether in a Muslim country or not. It is going on in London and Paris, and we are just now witnessing the first phase of it here in New York. The minaret is also their echo chamber. It allows the muezzin to screech his mantric call to prayer at high volume so the whole city could hear. The annoyance that this causes adds to the reasons we don't want a mosque anywhere in America, let alone at ground zero, or if we allow a mosque, the noise must be kept indoors. It explains why Muslim neighborhoods quickly turn into no-go zones, as sensible people flee just to get away from the noise. It adds to the reasons the Medinese Jews would taunt Muhammad; they didn't like the noise of the first Muslim mosque, either. Muslims of course don't let Christians ring church bells but insist on their right to their call to prayer, just as with all their other absurd hypocrisies. Remember: Amir Baraq Husayn ibn Ubama al-Ubama thinks this sound is pretty.
