Turkey's Anti- America views


The Author beginnings with stating that it’s hard to believe to the extent of how Anti America, the Turkish public really are. He also goes on the say how the variety of their hatred differs from Religious believes to secular leftists is “a reality that has to be reckoned with.”

There are Three ‘critical factors’ in which these ideas are shown. One being In the 70’s after Turkey invaded Cyprus to prevent the slaughter of the island’s Turks based on its agreement to keep the Status quo which was disrupted by the Greek coup, imposed was America arms embargo which lasted two years. Another is the apparent U.S ‘unshaken’ support of Israel against the Palestine’s plight and misery.

The author continues saying that as a result, everything America does in the region and every demand on Turkey is met with great resistance both official and public.
This source was written on 14th February, 2010. Therefore is it to extend reliable being that it is quite updated and resent. In the context of the author, and him being a professor of political sociology at a Turkish University gives the impression that he knows what he’s talking about
