One step too much?

If you look at the mainstream and dominant parties in Turkey's politics, the secularists became a minority.
The Third way, an independent movement didn't get ground in Turkey yet. Not only the old fashion socialists' way of thinking is over, but also that of the conservative liberals.
In Turkey there is a social liberal party. A party with an interesting point of view.
I am fine with the current AKP, but I don't think they can control their 'mullahs' on local level.
Knowing the Turks, who were forced to convert to Islam, I only hope that they can resist this threat. But as long as the Turkish macro economy is doing well, there are no points to make for the opposition. Especially not under D. Baykal's rigid regime.
Exciting times in Turkey!
