AKP and the great neo-Ottoman travesty

Firstly, the AKP is led by a culture of ignorance which abhors Kemalism – and the Kemalist elites who had held the “traditional Muslim” electorate in contempt for 80 years. The party tipped the longstanding balance of power away from westward-looking urbanites towards the rural people of the provinces – and when these masses started to emerge socially and financially from their second-rate-citizen status, they voted against the conventional parties. The emergence and empowerment of the AKP was a reaction to the Kemalist-military establishment’s longtime grip on power.”
