Kemal Ataturk was a great leader for Turkey, by Muslim country standards. Erdogan needs an acute bout of pancreatitis.
I am amazed that Turkish military leaders didnt take Erdogan out. He had so many of them killed. Seems they would have removed him first.
Ataturk’s legacy of a secular Western-leaning Turkey has been thoroughly subverted by the wildly Islamist Erdogan.
Ataturk banned the fez, converted written Turkish from Arabic script to the Latin alphabet, liberated women to wearing Western clothing, and most of all crushed the power of Islam to the extent of abolishing the Caliphate and later turning Hagia Sophia from a mosque into a museum
However, it’s hard for Greeks to celebrate Ataturk after he demolished Smyrna & expelled the Greeks from Asia Minor. And it was secular Turkey which occupies half of Cyprus to this day.
The nationalists should not be beating up an old man because he disagrees with them; they should be beating the hell out of the thousands of Muslim invaders that are infesting their country.
