Turkey Approves Changes, EU Says Implement Them

Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey


As I reported yesterday about its voting yesterday, Turkey’s Impatient with EU.   Interestingly, now that Turkey voted for the changes to its constitution, it appears that the EU is getting impatient with Turkey:

ANKARA, Turkey — The European Union has urged Turkey to implement reforms and to draft a new constitution that would usher in more freedoms after Turks approved sweeping changes to the constitution.

About 58 percent voted in favor of government-proposed amendments to the constitution…Turks voted Sunday on whether to amend a military-era constitution in what the government says is a key step toward EU-style democracy, despite opposition claims that the proposed reforms would shackle the independence of the courts.

The approval of the constitutional changes in Turkey yesterday, does suggest that it is leaning more towards a Western than Islamic direction.  And that is in contrast to other actions from the Turkish government over the past year that suggest it still intends to strengthen certain Islamic ties.

Yet, ss I pointed out in detail yesterday (see Turkey’s Impatient with EU), there are biblical (Psalm 83) and Catholic prophecies that suggest that the final European Beast/King of the North power will likely cooperate with Turkey, despite whatever set backs these two entities may have.

Turkey is likely to align itself more with Europe in the future when circumstances suggest that it is in its best interest.

Some articles of possibly related interest may include:

Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
Is There A Future King of the South? Some no longer believe there needs to be. Might Egypt, Islam, Iran, Arabs, or Ethiopia be involved? Might this King be called the Mahdi? What does the Bible say?
The Arab World In the Bible, History, and Prophecy The Bible discusses the origins of the Arab world and discusses the Middle East in prophecy. What is ahead for the Middle East and those who follow Islam? What about the Imam Mahdi?
Europa, the Beast, and Revelation Where did Europe get its name? What might Europe have to do with the Book of Revelation? What about “the Beast”? Is an emerging European power “the daughter of Babylon”? What is ahead for Europe?
Catholic Prophecies: Do They Mirror, Highlight, or Contradict Biblical Prophecies? People of all faiths may be surprised to see what various Roman and Orthodox Catholic prophets have been predicting as many of their predictions will be looked to in the 21st century.
