Does the Turkish opposition have any sense?

August 14, 2018
Sad, isn’t it? The CHP and its leader Kilicdaroglu, who faced nine election defeats, did everything to hinder Ince’s competing in the convention although they had presented Ince as the presidential candidate only two months ago. Amid all the debates, Kilicdaroglu contented himself with changing the Central Executive Board for the tenth time.

Evangelicals and the messianic character of US foreign policy

August 8, 2018
Of course, the threat is not because evangelicals believe in seven curses that will appear as signs of the apocalypse, that the apocalypse will begin in the Middle East and that they will one day rule the world thanks to Jesus Christ.

Surely there is a Supreme Court in Berlin today. But it is alarming that a state of law who is the founding member of the EU is currently guarding coup attempters, which is not even kept as a secret. The German public will hopefully bring them to account one day.

July 3, 2018
The trauma experienced by the CHP electorate since the election day is surely in the realm of psychiatry. However, an odd picture is revealed considering the reason for the CHP deputy chairs’ announcements, the claims of rig and the following confessions, and some groups call upon people to take to the streets.

Turkey's Snap Elections: Why During the State of Emergency?

May 21, 2018
In the Ottoman Code of Civil Law, there is a nice rule: “Bad examples do not serve as models.” I recalled the French case in view of this rule. In proportion to the terror attacks in France, the 719-day long emergency state and the normalization of the emergency rule through new laws set a bad example to the world.
