Three questions for... Burak Bekdil about Turkey in 2011 (10 min)

Burak Bekdil lives in Ankara and writes among others for the Hürriyet Daily News. He is one of Turkey's most outspoken commentators and critics of internal developments and foreign policy of "Turkey". The video interview was uploaded on Oct 25, 2011. Burak Bekdil shares valuable insights and expresses accurately the sentiment of secular-minded Turks on AKP, relations with Israel & relations with the Arab world. Unfortunately for Burak his fears have become his reality. Unfortunately for "Turkey" this is just the beginning of an ugly four decades ahead, of backwardness and internal strife.
