“The clothes look like they belong to Kuwait or Saudi Arabian Airlines." This is just one small sign of the Erdogan government's ongoing rollback of Turkish secularism and reimposition of sharia. This process has already transformed Turkey from a close friend of Israel to one of her bitterest enemies.

No. It shows the past. The future is just more sharia.
