No, Turkey must be partitioned to the secular west and the Islamic east (Anatolia).


In my view discussing partitioning of any country is not a good idea...

Hamma Hammami, official spokesman for the Popular Front in Tunisia has declined to attend a dinner with Erdoğan, who is in Tunisia today on his north African tour, and is instead calling for a demonstration in front of the Turkish embassy in solidarity with the Turkish people.

The following article in French gives more details:

I am afraid that if this develops into a full-scale revolution, it will not be a velvet one.

Turkish PM Erdoğan did not meet King Mohammad VI during Morocco visit
ANKARA

Turkish PM Erdoğan started his official visits to northern Africa in Morocco June 3.

Moroccan King Mohammad VI did not receive Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who faces intense pressure due to popular protests across Turkey, during the latter's official visit to Morocco, the country's media reported June 4.

The "cold" welcome for Erdoğan may be due to the fact that Erdoğan dismissed Morocco during his visit to "Arab Spring countries" in 2011, according to Moroccan radio station Yabiladi.

Of course it is. Why not? Eye for an eye.

Striking workers today marched from two different points to Taksim in an expression of solidarity with the protest.
