Do bear in mind that the state of emergency was introduced in order to ....protect democracy, human rights, freedom of expression , freedom of the press and in general values associated with a democratic nation :lol: :lol:

Some evidence of Erdogans commitment to democratic ....values. To support his commitment to these values here are some of his statements made over the years. Who would doubt that the man is the protector of democratic principles?

"Turkey’s Islamist President Tayyip Recep Erdogan has said that “Our religion [Islam] has defined a position for women [in society]: Motherhood.” He added that, “You cannot explain this to feminists because they don’t accept the concept of motherhood.”

"Violence against women has skyrocketed since Erdogan’s Islamist AKP party began ruling. According to the Turkish Ministry of Justice, from 2003, when the AKP party took power, until 2010, there was a 1,400 percent increase in the number of murders of women. Turkey also has very poor economic equality between the genders. Data from the World Economic Forum showed that in 2013, Turkey ranked 127th among 136 countries in the gender gap index of “economic participation.”

"In the Turkish Ottoman Empire, as in contemporary Islamism, there was no separation between religion and state. Erdogan's remarks against women are well grounded in Islamist thought.

For example, in Saudi Arabia -- where sharia (Islamic) law is the state law -- women are legally subordinate to men. The kingdom's male guardianship laws forbid women from travelling, doing business, marrying, divorcing, opening a bank account and even undergoing certain medical procedures without the permission of their male guardian (which can be their father, husband, son or even grandson).

He, Erdogan, the.. Democracy Protector fully subscribes to this:
"The official fatwa authorizing the jihad reads,

“It is necessary that they [all Muslims] should know from today that the Holy War has become a sacred duty and that the blood of the infidels in the Islamic lands may be shed with impunity (except those who enjoy the protection of the Muslim power and those to whom it has given security and those who are confederate with it)."

The western world however fully supports this ...democrat!!

The European Convention on Human Rights has been temporarily suspended in Turkey as part of the state of emergency.

I was wondering if this was legal, but apparently so according to Article 15/1 of the convention:

ARTICLE 15
Derogation in time of emergency
1.
In time of war or other public emergency threatening the
life of the nation any High Contracting Party may take measures
derogating from its obligations under this Convention to the extent
strictly required by the exigencies of the situation, provided that
such measures are not inconsistent with its other obligations under
international law.

It is worth noting that this may have implications for Cyprus given that the European Court of Human Rights holds Turkey directly responsible for human rights abuses in the part of Cyprus under its control.
