yes, this along with the fact that Turkey does not comply with a single point of the Copenhagen criteria makes opening some chapters pointless because they cannot be closed.

Turkey has snookered herself and is wasting the EU's time and money.

And since events last week and this, with Erdo's rantings, in face of the riots, what now about those European principles?

Since Erdogan couldnt tie the figurative Turkish gordian knot together(Islamist,Secularist) and bring Turkey into the west completely, I cant see anyone else that can, unless the Generals step in to bring the peace, which in essence will be temporary. Even if these demonstrations die down soon there are serious problems within Turkey and will probably last for a long long time...

which is why it will take at least 10 years before they can join assuming that they would like to join a bankrupt entity.
