Iran Fears Possible Persian Spring
Turkey's Sunni clerical fascist (Islamist) prime minister Recep Erdogan and his henchmen are determined to crush the country's secular uprising.
Turkey's Shiite Islamist imperial rival, Iran, is rooting for Erdogan. Iran's fear is that the demonstrations, if allowed to continue, could spread to the mulloahcracy.
In the meantime, the Obama administration has turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the street protests that have threatened to put an end to Erdogan's dictatorial rule and step-by-step Islamizing of Turkey. The administration is pro-Islamist; and Turkey's regime is seen as a model of (oxymoronic) so-called moderate Islamism.
