In an attempt to
stifle political debate and progress, the Turkish courts
have closed the Turkish Fazilat Party, just as they had closed
previous Turkish parties with an Islamic leaning or whose
agenda they did not approve. They previously banned the former prime
minister, Prof. Necmettin Erbakan, from further getting involved in the politics
of his country.
The political decision by
the constitutional court indicates that Turkey is a long way from
abandoning a despotic rule by a political elite backed by the army,
and that Turkish democracy is merely a farce. Those who want Turkey
to be part of the European Community should insist on political
freedom of expression within Turkey first.
Since the overthrow of the
caliphate by the Young Turk Movement, backed by Western imperialist
powers and money, Turkey has been a most fanatical secularist regime
with a mission to destroy religious, and in particular Islamic,
expression. However, the Turkish people are moving increasingly back
to the values of Islam, and the Islamic Party of Britain
congratulates them on their patience and persistence.
