Turkey isnt a authortarian regime. I can say it cristal clear. because Turkey was one those Countries US used to rule for a looong time.US intervene to Turkey at least 4 times since Cold-war started.Parties doesnt share so-called western values banned. Last fifty years or so.Turkey ruled by Western oriented minorty goverments until 2002.in last election leading party (AKP) take %49,8 of vote against Western oriented main opposition party (CHP) which take only %27 of vote .

It really doesnt make any sense saying authoritarian to Turkey if you have very limited understanding and knowledge about it.Turkey surely has some anti-semitic policies.but Ankara is quite right about it. Israel killed a dozen Turkish citizens in international Waters and Also Gazza blocked has no explanation. I believe Most important reasons for these policies is, They claimed Jerusalem their capital and They didnt hold their part of the bargain to UN when they accepted to UN in 1947.(PS.There accepted two condition which is giving the lands they occupied by force and Giving Palestians Their rights).US might be forget these Two condition but Rest of World wasnt forgot And Palestine accepted to UN as Non-member observer state. America is one only 9 county voted against this proposal. Turkey and Rest of Wold is quite Anti Semitic Because Everybody wanna see the day Israel kept their part of the Bargain.

Judging Peoples or Countries online is very easy for who have very limited comprehension of the subject.
