Erdogan in de Gaulles Fußstapfen

Weltweit stellt man sich verzweifelt die Frage, was Recep Tayyip Erdogan wohl möchte und wohin er die Türkei führen wird. Dies angesichts der Tatsache, dass Erdogan ein gläubiger Moslem ist und sich zunehmend mit den moslemischen Nachbarn verbündet.

Bislang hat Erdogan aus der Türkei keine fundamentalistische Diktatur gemacht. Seit er das Amt des Ministerpräsidenten übernommen hat, ist die Türkei eher demokratischer geworden. Die Grundlagen der kemalistischen Republik bleiben bestehen, wobei die Möglichkeiten der Armee, sich in die Politik einzumischen, erheblich geschmälert wurden. Der Dialog mit den Minderheiten in der Türkei wird wahrgenommen, und Parlamentarismus, Meinungs- und Medienfreiheit wie auch der Status des Obersten Gerichtshofs bleiben unverändert erhalten.

    Erdogan in de Gaulle’s footsteps

    Worldwide it is desperately asked what Recep Tayyip Erdogan will want
    and where it will lead to Turkey. This view of the fact that Erdogan
    is a devout Muslim and increasingly allied itself with the Muslim
    neighbors.

    So far, Erdogan from Turkey has not made any fundamentalist
    dictatorship. Since he took over as prime minister, Turkey has become
    more democratic. The foundations of the Kemalist Republic shall be
    maintained, with the possibilities of the army to interfere in
    politics, have been greatly diminished. The dialogue with the
    minorities in Turkey is perceived, and parliamentary government,
    freedom of expression and media freedom as well as the status of the
    Supreme Court remain unchanged.
    With the neighbors – the Muslim republics of the former Soviet Union,
    Iraq, but also with Syria and, above all with Iran – to the Turkish
    Relations in a very substantive issues in greater depth. With Israel,
    there is turbulence, and the Americans are angry, because Turkey has
    voted in the UN Security Council sanctions against the Iranian
    program.

    There is the precedent of an important member of the Western alliance,
    which has paved the Americans have similar concerns. It was Charles de
    Gaulle in the 1960s. The French president has recognized Red China at
    that time, flirted with the South Americans against the U.S. and
    relaxed especially his commitment to NATO. He still has his
    fundamental and deep-seated, not the least ideological link to the
    Western democracies never called into question. He wanted to be a
    vassal of the Americans, but an equal partner. For this he needed
    independently, links to the Communist and the Third World. This was de
    Gaulle to the Americans to win more weight. Relations with Israel, he
    has developed largely in parallel to the relations with the Arab world
    and relaxed only on the eve of the Six Day War in favor of the Arab
    countries.

    Even Turkey’s Erdogan and remain fundamentally linked to the Western
    world as well as with NATO. The relationships with their neighbors
    should – apart from bilateral interests – Turkey’s increasingly
    self-employment and consequently gain more weight in its relations
    with the West. Relations with Israel are important, especially as long
    as they do not impede parallel relations with the Arab world.

    Because of the deterioration in the chances of peace between Israel
    and the Palestinians and between Israel and Syria, it has become since
    a couple of years for Turkey, however, increasingly difficult to
    maintain the policy of the parallel relationships. The next proposed
    in favor of relations with the Islamic world. So far, Erdogan avoided,
    however, be detrimental to the basics of mutual interests of both
    countries. This means that the development of a peace process between
    Israel and its neighbors could also promote the restoration of good
    Turkish-Israeli relations. Turkey is neither the West nor lost for
    Israel.
