Reader comment on item: The Good News in Turkey

Submitted by havas (Turkey), Jun 4, 2013 at 11:44

you have been writing and saying that erdoğan is an islamist for a long time. ı was disagreeing with you, because for more than ten years he was able to hide this very well from us.

but few days ago he openly called our country's founder great man ATATÜRK a drunk man, then he made a new law which almost banned alcohol consumption in restaurants. according to this law restaurants will serve alcohol in places where no one can see you drinking. he also dont give alcohol permission to the new restaurants. there are many many more things.

he has no respect to his people he curses to people who dont think like him. he is a real islamist and a dictator.

so ım sorry mr pipes. ı accept, you were right. but tell us some more now. what will happen in turkey in the future. because this man has at least 35% block votes which is enough for this dictator to be chosen again.

Daniel Pipes replies:

How good, on your 119th comment at this website, to hear some agreement and even praise, havas.

But can't tell you what will happen next. Will the prime minister keep his arrogant ways or learn from his mistakes? Only he knows that.
