Turkey’s Identity Issues

Quick newspost this time…saw a great article in the New York Times this morning.  As Turkey is becoming an increasing regional player, their state identity is really coming into debate.  Are they a democracy (or not)?  Islamic or secular?  Eastern or Western?  

And all these questions are coming to a head with the trial of military officers charged with plotting a coup against the government of the Islamic AKP party.
