Turkey re-elects governing party

Posted by TP on Monday, July 23, 2007

Supporters of Turkey’s governing AK Party are celebrating after the country’s prime minister claimed a comprehensive general election victory.

After 80+ years of moving its society “westerly” towards Europe and at least a decade of extending its solidly secular hand to the EU; only to be rejected by the EU’s short-sighted and provincial ruling class, Turkey is now clearly on an “easterly” path. If I may borrow from the New Testament – “forgive them father, for they (EU in general; France specifically) know not what they do”. You reap what you sow – prepare yourselves.
