Turkey: Army Chiefs boycott celebration of secular Turkey because President’s wife wore a headscarf

Turkish army chiefs boycotted an official ceremony at the Presidential Palace because the President’s wife wore an Islamic headscarf, the Press reported today. The army’s top brass were conspicuous by their absence late yesterday, at a banquet thrown by President Abbdullah Gul to commemorate the creation of the modern, secular Turkey in 1923.

And now a brilliant piece: Jihad is sweet, Jihad is fun, in which Erdogan plays an important part. Yes, I know that Erdogan is not the President but Abdullah Gül, but that makes very little difference.

    Power to the Turkish Army Chiefs! And to all those who remember Ataturk’s legacy and the fact that Turkey is a modern secular nation.

      Yep, I’m with them. They are the only ones stopping the Islamist diarrhea there. But Erdogan has already empowered in the administration, justice, police, etc. a lot of people who support his agenda.
      I only hope these brave guys are not being arrested or degraded with the accusation of another Ergenekon.😦
