Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan Lost Me

"Turkey becomes first country ever to ban Google DNS - Today's Zaman, your gateway to Turkish daily news":

The Justice and Development Party (AK Party) government, frustrated with Turkish Internet users' circumventing a ban that has blocked access to Twitter since early last Friday, has blocked access to public Domain Name System (DNS) servers provided by Google, making Turkey the first country ever to take such drastic measures to block access to a website.


There was a time when I worked to encourage Mr. Erdogan to rise to the occasion and become the greatest Turkish leader in history, including Ataturk. Sadly, he peaked during the Arab Spring and when standing up to the Zionists. Since then, he's slid quite a way down.

He grossly mishandled the Gezi Park protests, the Syrian problem (now civil war), the Palestinian issue in the wake of the Zionist attacks on the Mavi Marmara, and a number of other issues (Iran, economics, etc.).

Perhaps he can regain some sense of balance. Of course, if the corruption charges are substantiated, he must go. If he blocks a full, independent investigation, he must still go.
