Like it or not, Erdogan IS a moderate Islamist. Despite his flaws, he HAS given Turkey more democracy than under ANY Kemalist. We are FAR more fortunate than any Iranian ever was. We are unfortunate in the fact he is our leader, but fortunate in the sense that things could be much, much worse. We wont be like Iran under Erdogan, no chance. His prime ministry, however, could open the path for many more extreme Islamists - i will give you that much. But the military will just need to be a bit more secretive about there plans to unseat government in that scenario.
