The leadership of Turkey is uncertain as to how to proceed in any aspect of the Middle East quandary.
1. Should they engage in defeating ISIS?
2. Is it more important to support ISIS since that group hates Kurds who the Turkish government hates.
3. Should Turkey halt the flow of ISIS supporters who simply take a stroll through the land on their way to Syria?
4. ISIS just exploded a bomb in a Turkish city which killed twenty young people and wounded dozens. So, should Turkey seek revenge?
5. Turkey insist the main foe is Syrian leader Assad, the US believes there is a more important foe. So, what to do?
Frankly, it is time for Turkey to stand up against terrorism or would the government just go on ignoring the death of its citizens?

The people of Turkey were confronted on Sunday with a challenge as to whether or not their country would continue on its slide into authoritarian rule from President Erdogan and his Justice And Development Party. Erdogan has gone mad with power and has imprisoned dozens of members of the media for the crime of “insulting the President.” Gee, if the USA had such a law, Fox News would cease to exist. Anyway, there was an election and Erdogan’s party only obtained 41% of the vote. He was expecting to receive over sixty percent. The opposition People’s Democratic Party wound up with 25% and Kurdish voters gave their party 12%.
This election is a beginning for the people of Turkey to avoid the drift toward one party government in their land and the end of a free media. Hopefully, Erdogan learns that the people of Turkey want to continue being a model of Muslim democracy.
