Ultra Nationalism

The elections are coming. Nothing different from other countries, only the fact that Turkish parties are appealing to their ultra nationalist roots, and their background, making this kind of images:

The leader of the MHP, an ultra nationalist movement in Turkey, throwing a rope in the public 'who will hang 1 state enemy of Turkey?'

The question remains: is Islam in Turkey compatible with Democracy Western style and is Turkish style Democracy in style with Europe's demands? Or has it to face a modern Middle East country kind of Democracy in the near future, with ultra nationalist Islam as leaders?

The people of Turkey must decide, not foreigners.
