It is not over yet.
The division among the Turkish society is getting to a pick - again.
This time it’s the traditionalists and religious Muslims, leaded by ruling AK Party and Prime Minister Erdogan how try to impose their way of life, their vision of Turkey and their values upon the secularists.
But shell we not forget that that was not always the case, when Mustafa Kemal Ataturk established the modern Republic of Turkey, the gravity was in favor of the Turkish secularists, and in a way they too imposed their way of secular life upon the religious Muslims.
The Gezi Park and the will to protect its trees were just a trigger, the attitude of Prime Minister Erdogan in the past decade he democratically elected to rule Turkey created a feeling of dictatorship among his adversaries. Erdogan imposes giant projects such as building the biggest mosque on earth or building a third cross-Bosphorus bridge razed objectors. But the most difficult for the secularists to accept are the Islamic laws he promotes - banning alcohol consuming and sale at nighttime or a law that will dramatically limit availability of abortion.
Seems like no side is ready to climb down the tree he is on, and so Turkey stays divided for now…
