Soner Cagaptay told : “Erdogan has two kinds of voters: those who love him, adore him and will vote for him regardless, nearly a third of the electorate,” External link

Soner Cagaptay writes : “The country is polarised between supporters and opponents of Erdogan, who has won successive elections in Turkey since 2002 on a platform of right-wing populism,” “Erdogan has demonised and cracked down on electoral constituencies that are not likely to vote for him, a strategy that has dramatically worsened polarisation in Turkey, which is now sharply split between pro- and anti-Erdogan camps: the former, a conservative and Turkish-nationalist right-wing coalition, believes that the country is paradise; the latter, a loose group of leftists, secularists, liberals, and Kurds, thinks that it lives in hell” External link

Soner Cagaptay said : “Just as Ataturk shaped Turkey in his own image following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Erdogan is shaping a new country, but one that sees itself as profoundly Islamist in politics and foreign policy to make it a great power once again,” External link

Soner Cagaptay argued : “Here lies the crisis of modern Turkey: half of the country embraces Erdogan’s brand of politics, but the other half vehemently opposes it. So long as Turkey is genuinely democratic, Erdogan cannot complete his [anti-Ataturk] revolution,” External link

Soner Cagaptay said : “Instead of delivering more liberties for all, he has cracked down on his opponents and locked up dissidents, providing disproportionate freedoms for his conservative and Islamist base,” External link

ahram-EN Thursday, December 5, 2019 10:42:00 PM EAT

Soner Cagaptay writes : “Having governed Turkey for 15 years, from 2002, Erdogan has amassed powers sufficient to undermine Ataturk’s legacy and, were they alive, make those original Kemalists question their absolute confidence in their system. He has dismantled Ataturk’s secularism in just over a decade and has done so with little mercy for his opponents. He has flooded the country’s political and education systems with rigidly conservative Islam and pivoted Turkey away from Europe and the West,” External link

Soner Cagaptay writes : “Although his original ten-month prison sentence was eventually reduced to four months and ten days, his imprisonment from March to July 1999 resulted in a ban from politics. This development, despite temporarily wounding Erdogan, actually empowered him by casting him as a martyr,” External link

ahram-EN Thursday, December 5, 2019 10:42:00 PM EAT

Soner Cagaptay writes : “The president may continue to consolidate power by acting as a divisive figure, thereby exposing Turkey to deep tensions and further violence, in which case he will be crowned an ‘autocratic sultan’. Obviously, if that trajectory comes to fruition, his legacy will not be a positive one: about half the electorate will vehemently oppose his platform and work to undermine it. Add to this the influence of nefarious outside actors, including the jihadists, and Turkey could even descend into an unfortunate civil conflict,” External link

Soner Cagaptay argued : "We are not talking about the complete production chain, as it is a new type of weapon. But the production of some components can be organized,” Peskov said. Peskov’s caveat undermines Ankara’s claim regarding the transfer of technology. Many military analysts argue that Moscow’s trust in Ankara which remains a NATO member is not such that it can reliably transfer its sensitive technology to Turkey. Cahit Armagan Dilek, director of the 21st Century Turkey Institute, used official Russian statements to dispute Ankara’s claims regarding the transfer of sensitive Russian military technology to Turkey. “It’s not me that says this but Kremlin’s spokesman Peskov, who only two days ago repeated what many Russian officials have said before,” Dilek wrote in the news site Yeni Cag. He was referring to Peskov’s qualified remarks about the possibility of producing some S-400 components in Turkey. Soner Cagaptay, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, believes that Erdogan has left himself no room to pull back from the S-400 deal. “[Putin] is keenly aware that Turkey’s purchase of the S-400 system will lead to a rupture between Ankara and Washington, creating a fissure inside NATO," External link

Soner Cagaptay told : “Erdogan has two kinds of voters: those who love him, adore him and will vote for him regardless, nearly a third of the electorate,” External link

al-monitor Friday, December 13, 2019 2:38:00 AM EAT

Soner Cagaptay writes : “The country is polarised between supporters and opponents of Erdogan, who has won successive elections in Turkey since 2002 on a platform of right-wing populism,” “Erdogan has demonised and cracked down on electoral constituencies that are not likely to vote for him, a strategy that has dramatically worsened polarisation in Turkey, which is now sharply split between pro- and anti-Erdogan camps: the former, a conservative and Turkish-nationalist right-wing coalition, believes that the country is paradise; the latter, a loose group of leftists, secularists, liberals, and Kurds, thinks that it lives in hell” External link

ahram-EN Thursday, December 5, 2019 10:42:00 PM EAT

Soner Cagaptay said : “Just as Ataturk shaped Turkey in his own image following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Erdogan is shaping a new country, but one that sees itself as profoundly Islamist in politics and foreign policy to make it a great power once again,” External link

ahram-EN Thursday, December 5, 2019 10:42:00 PM EAT

Soner Cagaptay argued : “Here lies the crisis of modern Turkey: half of the country embraces Erdogan’s brand of politics, but the other half vehemently opposes it. So long as Turkey is genuinely democratic, Erdogan cannot complete his [anti-Ataturk] revolution,” External link

ahram-EN Thursday, December 5, 2019 10:42:00 PM EAT

Soner Cagaptay said : “Instead of delivering more liberties for all, he has cracked down on his opponents and locked up dissidents, providing disproportionate freedoms for his conservative and Islamist base,” External link

ahram-EN Thursday, December 5, 2019 10:42:00 PM EAT

Soner Cagaptay writes : “Having governed Turkey for 15 years, from 2002, Erdogan has amassed powers sufficient to undermine Ataturk’s legacy and, were they alive, make those original Kemalists question their absolute confidence in their system. He has dismantled Ataturk’s secularism in just over a decade and has done so with little mercy for his opponents. He has flooded the country’s political and education systems with rigidly conservative Islam and pivoted Turkey away from Europe and the West,” External link

ahram-EN Thursday, December 5, 2019 10:42:00 PM EAT

Soner Cagaptay writes : “Although his original ten-month prison sentence was eventually reduced to four months and ten days, his imprisonment from March to July 1999 resulted in a ban from politics. This development, despite temporarily wounding Erdogan, actually empowered him by casting him as a martyr,” External link

ahram-EN Thursday, December 5, 2019 10:42:00 PM EAT

Soner Cagaptay writes : “The president may continue to consolidate power by acting as a divisive figure, thereby exposing Turkey to deep tensions and further violence, in which case he will be crowned an ‘autocratic sultan’. Obviously, if that trajectory comes to fruition, his legacy will not be a positive one: about half the electorate will vehemently oppose his platform and work to undermine it. Add to this the influence of nefarious outside actors, including the jihadists, and Turkey could even descend into an unfortunate civil conflict,” External link

Soner Cagaptay says : “It was a smart strategic step by Trump,” External link

Soner Cagaptay argued : "We are not talking about the complete production chain, as it is a new type of weapon. But the production of some components can be organized,” Peskov said. Peskov’s caveat undermines Ankara’s claim regarding the transfer of technology. Many military analysts argue that Moscow’s trust in Ankara which remains a NATO member is not such that it can reliably transfer its sensitive technology to Turkey. Cahit Armagan Dilek, director of the 21st Century Turkey Institute, used official Russian statements to dispute Ankara’s claims regarding the transfer of sensitive Russian military technology to Turkey. “It’s not me that says this but Kremlin’s spokesman Peskov, who only two days ago repeated what many Russian officials have said before,” Dilek wrote in the news site Yeni Cag. He was referring to Peskov’s qualified remarks about the possibility of producing some S-400 components in Turkey. Soner Cagaptay, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, believes that Erdogan has left himself no room to pull back from the S-400 deal. “[Putin] is keenly aware that Turkey’s purchase of the S-400 system will lead to a rupture between Ankara and Washington, creating a fissure inside NATO," External link
