The civil servants in Turkey (including a great percentage of university professors) are just ignorant, incompetent people, many of them are also very islamic due to the fact that since 1980 coup d'etat so many of those got government positions from buttom to the top. But the thing is that if Erdogan is elected also those few who fervently defend secularism will be eliminated in one way or another. Seclarism in Turkey is SO IMPORTANT not only for Turkye but for the rest of the world. It is the only muslim country in which there is still some hope. If Turkey falls in the hands of these islamists (which it already had for the majr part) it will be a sad day for our planet. So in this respect Israel and US should leave the stupid idea of being nice to Erdogan for selfish reasons and keep him friend for their short-term benefits but be tough. Years and years CIA supported Turkish intelligence in its terror on the leftists, now see what happened...
