Things are going bad in Turkey and it’s in danger of falling back into an Islamic Republic. As one of the only secular democratic nations, it’s disturbing to see the Islamists trying to gain back power. The most feared individual, Prime Minister Erdogan, is a Pro-Islamist politician who may change the course of Turkish Democracy.
In addition, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan thinks the term “moderate Islam”is offensive.
Speaking at Kanal D TV’s Arena program, PM Erdogan commented on the term “moderate Islam”, often used in the West to describe AKP and said, ‘These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”
