  1. As someone born in Istanbul nearly seven decades ago, I had been closely watching and worrying that we would come to this point. Because Erdogan’s and AKP’s Islamic groups had been financed on the back of major cities which Istanbul is the largest contributor. Changing hands through democratic means as it happened on March 31st., was too much for the diktator to bear as it signalled the end of his reign.
    Turkish opposition to Erdogan needs the support of western democracies to isolate him and the country. Because AKP will fix this re-election as they have “fixed” the all elections for the past 17 years. Turkey will continue its course toward abyss and the outcome will not only hurt the secular Turks but also the western democracies.

    If Trump loses in 2020, just watch him try the same thing, as he’s a ‘fan’ of Erdogan (and most dictators except Maduro).
