Tayyip Erdoğan Vatandaşa Yumruk Atıyor

Erdogan selalu membuat kejutan. Ia tak terdengar blusukan, tapi rakyatnya semua sejahtera. Ia tidak suka pencitraan, tapi hasil kerja kerasnya sangat nampak di permukaan. Ia tak (suka) diliput media, tapi justru membiarkan rakyat yang bercerita.

Bangganya rakyat Turki punya pemimpin negeri seperti ini.

Berkin Elvan died today. He has been struggling to survive in coma for the last 269 days. What killed him is not the police who fired that tear-gas canister. What actually killed him is the ideology that tries to enslave people’s brains. In my opinion, PM Erdogan is the one who is responsible from this event. He must apologise but I know he won’t.

The world we live in is not like a fairy tale. There has always been people who tried to enslave others and the people who fought against it. There are now people who still try to enslave others and the people who fights against it. And, in the future, it’ll be the same. People must resist or they will be no different than dead when they obey the destructive power of enslavers.


This is Turkiye!

Turkey telah mengirimkan banyak bantuan untuk Gaza. Dan kali ini, Turkey membawa “ambulans udara” untuk mengobati mereka yang terluka. Setidaknya 200 orang akan dibawa ke Turkey untuk menjalani pengobatan, karena tidak mungkin dilakukan di Gaza sebab keterbatasan listrik dan perlengkapan. Ini bentuk komitmen Turkey membela Gaza. Di samping itu, NGO-NGO di Turkey sedang menyiapkan flotilla baru yang akan berlayar menuju Gaza. Kali ini, kemungkinan besar akan dikawal oleh AL Turkey.

Erdogan. Siapa yang tidak kenal beliau? Sewaktu kampanye presidensial Turkey, dia tidak menjual isu Palestina untuk meraup suara rakyat Turkey. Dia pun tidak berakting jadi pura-pura soleh di televisi. Tapi sesaat setelah dia menang 53%, langsung mengirimkan ambulans udara, setelah sebelumnya bantuan dan dukungan juga telah ia berikan untuk Palestina.

Ah, kau ini gila, Tuan Erdogan! Menjadi pahlawan kami di tengah banyak manusia yang berpura-berpura peduli padahal mereka asik menikmati hidup sendiri. Kau keras kepada siapapun yang mengusik rencana hebatmu itu, sampai-sampai mereka menjulukimu “diktator”. Tapi, apa pedulimu? Apa peduli kami? Yang kami tahu, kau sungguh-sungguh dengan kegilaanmu itu. Semoga Tuhan selalu merahmatimu, Tuan Erdogan!

Salam hormat setinggi-tingginya kepada Turkey dan segenap rakyatnya. GBU, Turkiye!

In the chaos of the ongoing Crimea and Russia conflict, the Turkish government, under Erdoğan, has passed a bill banning Twitter. Twitter is vastly used by Turks in order to organize protests and has become a battlefield between pro and anti government forces.

This ban is yet another example of the Turkish government restricting the freedom of speech of their citizens. In a democracy still struggling in its infancy, the Turkish political situation should be carefully tracked, particularly by Western countries, in order to ensure that this gateway to the Middle East and Asia does not explode into a civil revolution. 

#329 Because of President Erdogan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan isn’t exactly known to be a fighter for gender equality, but do we really need world leaders who believe that women and men cannot be treated equally “because it is against human nature”?

On Monday, at the Women and Justice Summit, Erdogan addressed an audience of Turkish women (including his own daughter) with these statements:

"Our religion (Islam) has defined a position for women (in society): motherhood."

"Some people can understand this, while others can’t. You cannot explain this to feminists because they do not accept the concept of motherhood."

"Motherhood is something else."

"Their characters, habits and physiques are different…. You cannot place a mother breastfeeding her baby on an equal footing with men."

"You cannot get women to do every kind of work men can do, as in Communist regimes.

You cannot tell them to go out and dig the soil. This is against their delicate nature.”

Essentially, what he’s saying is that women aren’t people. Or kind of like people, but not people-people, not like men-people,  since women only have one purpose. 

According to The Guardian

"The Islamic-rooted government of Erdoğan has long been accused by critics of seeking to erode the country’s secular principles and limiting the civil liberties of women.

Erdoğan has drawn the ire of feminist groups for declaring that every woman in Turkey should have three children and with proposals to limit abortion rights, the morning-after pill and caesarean sections.”

Turkey ranked 120th of 136 nations in the World Economic Forum’s 2013 Gender Gap Index, down 15 places since 2006. A third of Turkish women have suffered sexual and physical violence at some point in their lives. Five women are killed in Turkey every day and according to Human Rights Watch, violence against women is on the rise. Erdoğan claims this rise in numbers is caused by more murders being reported rather than more murders being committed. 


On the outskirts of the Turkish capital, a new landmark looms over what was once Ankara forestland. It’s a new presidential palace complex, with at least 1,100 rooms and an official price tag of $615 million — although critics suggest both figures are probably higher.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says it’s a symbol of Turkey’s important and growing role in the region and beyond. But aside from the staggering size and cost, some Turks are wondering what the vast edifice says about Erdogan’s ambitions to rule Turkey for years to come.

"Only dictators want to live in palaces. Normal heads of state live in relatively modest compounds."

- Izzet Cetin, opposition politician

From the street, the compound of three massive buildings looms up out of a muddy construction site, dwarfing the many security guards who shoo away picture-taking visitors. To one side, a crane looms over a partly built mosque designed to hold 4,000 worshippers.

The complex, nicknamed Ak Saray, or White Palace, was unveiled in late October. A video posted online featured dramatic aerial images of the imposing stone structures, with the national anthem playing in the background.

This is exactly why Israel monitors what is entering Gaza:

A shipment of “humanitarian aid” for the Gaza Strip that arrived from Turkey to the Ashdod Port yesterday (Wednesday) included hundreds of small metal marbles that could be added to an explosive device to increase the range of its blast and make it much deadlier.
