Turkish soccer body penalizes Kurdish club amid mounting tensions

By James M. Dorsey

A Turkish Football Federation (TFF) decision to penalize a third tier soccer club in the predominantly Kurdish city of Diyarbakir for adopting a Kurdish name reflects mounting tension in south-eastern Turkey. The tension is fuelled by the realization that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is unlikely to make major concessions before parliamentary elections this summer in peace talks to which both Turkey and Kurdish insurgents remain committed and alleged efforts by…

Turkish soccer: Illiberal President Erdogan’s latest victim

By James M. Dorsey

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s illiberal policies have targeted the media, the judiciary, the police, militant soccer fans, and anti-government protesters. Now they threaten to claim yet another victim: the game of football itself.

In a major blow to troubled Turkish soccer, Yildiz Holding, a conservative conglomerate known for its confectionary and biscuit business and close ties to Mr. Erdogan that is one of Turkey’s largest…

A Turkish woman takes pictures of rainbow-colored stairs on August 31, 2013 in Istanbul. Stairs in the Cihangir and Findikli neighborhoods, which attracted attention after being painted in rainbow colors by a local man on August 27, were all painted grey on the night of August. 29, and following comments on social media, the municipality of Beyoglu immediately painted them again in rainbow colors.
