Turkey, a new Iran?

My concern is that Islamic religious oppression will increase in the country, raising the level of terroist activities, and subjecting non Islamic people to strict Islamic law, which will basically force them into exile from the country. I see no way for Turkey to be accepted into the EU, as a result.

Turkey is slowly but surely turning into a new Iran. For the few past years, one could see more and more Turkish women wearing the islamist headscarf but also the hijab. This year, I could see women in full hijab where ever I have been in Turkey. The "nouveaux riches" are all from the islamist side, thanks to the AKP! Will Turkey become Turkistan?
