    -- Erdogan as important to Turkey as Ataturk, and trying to shape it in his own image as significantly as Ataturk did decades ago.
    -- They’re at the opposite ends of the spectrum in their beliefs: Ataturk was a militant secularist, Erdogan a committed Islamist
    -- Erdogan’s rise shows arc of Turkish history, from democracy to an ever more theocratic authoritarian state
    -- This all matters because a more religious version of Vladimir Putin is now at the helm of the biggest, richest and most militarily powerful US ally in the region.

                  This video openly lies about the nature of the military coup in 2015. The coup was meant to control the government to abolish democracy in the nation of Turkey. Erdogan and his people were able to prevent this, and for that I commend them

                                Erdogan proved dat a true religious nation blossoms n prospers much faster dan a irreligious secular nation. GOD z d sustainer. there z no GOD but he.

                                idea of poverty n failure being attached wid religion z satanic+false+illogical+irrational ;). jus get out of misinterpretation of religion lyk nazism, zionism, hindutva, wahabbism, burma buddism etc :)

                                                  Erdogan is a very important leader and has done a very important job. It's just a smear campaign. Nobody can afford to democracy in Turkey. Erdogan is doing his best to ensure the development of the country and the development of democracy. A leader supported by the people who have the authority from the people. This site is an enemy of Turkey website. I condemn

                                                        ​@Batuhan Demirci Haha, yeah Gezi Park actually started like this. But this event quickly returned to protestors vs Erdogan (Because actually he's the one who wants to make that shopping center.) and even me, a citizien in this country forget about this fact too. In the end protestors reached their main goal and able to prevent that shopping center's construction. But it's not like they are tottaly lying about this. Because 99.9% people in there against the government and Erdogan. And about the coup... Like I told earlier, I don't wanna talk about it. :)

                                                        @William Golding Gezi Park event is not to protest Erdogan. Gezi Park event was done because they would cut a tree and make a shopping center instead. And the shopping center is being done with the permission of the mayor of Istanbul, not with the permission of Erdogan. He also tried to make the coup not traitors, but soldiers. In other words, the fetullah who lives in America today is a terrorist trying to make a coup in our country. Although he is considered a terrorist, the American president Donald Trump does not give him back to us. .Sorry for my bad english translate with google translate :)

They are traitors and terorist.We will keep Turkish nationalism alive. We will follow the traces of leader Atatürk and we will establish Turan, the great Turkish state.

FETO is basicly an intelligence and religious organisation backed by US, which invaded Turkish State Offices since 40 years...like military, justice department, law enforcement department, intelligence department, all were infiltrated by agents grown and led by FETO. No wonder why even republicans did not support those coups....

A man from the Imam orator, but this would be expected, let me add that from saving themselves referring to his wife Emine Erdogan is using a $ 50,000 purse, even if most people in the country has not seen this much money, the end of Turkey does not look good.
