Living directly behind the new mosque in Ovacik, and we are all being summoned to go on the streets to support president Erdogan and the failed coup one year anniversary. It is half past midnight..

Well, what do you expect ? It's the 1st anniversary of the coup attempt. They're not going to hold up the party until 10 or 11 iin the morning when all the bloody expats roll out of their pits.    ;)

They'll probably keep the party going 'til at least 1st prayer around 5am and get their 2nd wind about 6am. Get those drums a bangin' !

Kendine Iyi Bak.

  ;)

They think they are celebrating democracy without knowing what democracy is.

Celebrating democracy in a religious building does not fit together because religions order to obey and not to question whereas democracy orders to question and not to obey.

A well used Turkish phrase. Kendine iyi bak ( or bakim ) = Take care.

But aren't all Imams paid by the government ? And aren't all mosques built and maintained by the government ?

Yes You are right KKOB. A Turkish proverb says "parayı veren düdüğü çalar" , this means : "who pays the money blows the whistle".

Very similar to the proverb "He who pays the piper calls the tune".

Finished by 2.00am? Disgraceful! Totally lacking in respect; should have gone on all day. Who are these people - dissidents? Any known links to terrorists organizations? Could we invent some?
