The court order, ban, fatwa, whatever


What I simply don't understand is why nobody knows why this court decision is made. Looks fair to me that when a court makes a decision, it issues also a statement why the decision is made...or am I wrong? Now leaving so many people in limbo, it also creates space for speculations, conspiracy theories and gossip. I think that after 5 years, I still have a lot to learn about how Turkey is ruled, but this court issued rather a fatwa than a decision...

Great analogy. But maybe it's the 'Islamist' party, and not the so-called 'secular protectionists' who are going to be bringing reforms to Turkey. Only if the Turkish people are ready to digest though. And so far, the Turks are a little confused. Hope they remove their blindfolds and listen with their ears, and act with their heart, and not with their egos.

One fatwa deserves another.

Metin,
As far as I see comments (especially on the Istabulian) I strongly believe that the reformists of the AKP will do a lot more in the good of Turkey than the 'stalinist protectionist' aka CHP...still a member of the Socialist Int. A Shame!
I rely on the Turks I know, they want to settle all the problems for once and always.
Still HOT in Istanbul.
Btw: have an idea, can I call you?
