Turkey - The new Ottomans?

I truly recommend watching this episode of 'Empire' by Al Jazeera's Marwan Bishara - this time on modern Turkey, its foreign policies and the rule of the AK Party. Erdogan has recently won a landslide support in truly democratic elections. The Islamist party plays an extremely important role in contemporary Turkey and its impact is far more positive that many had expected. Turkey, with its culture-rich and extremely well-developed Istanbul, now looks not only to the West and East but also to the South and North. It is proving to play a much more important and bold role, not only in the region but worldwide.
