    Right, but as a figurehead, it's only a ceremonial role. There would be hell to pay if she ever refused royal ascent of a law. They're in survival mode as it is.

    From my experience where you can't criticize Turkey online without a bunch of Turkish accounts coming and attacking you for it. It's worse than Israel.

    Okay, I was curious.

    I know the Turkish case is depressing. I wanted to visit Istanbul someday and see for myself what the streets really look like. It’s part of a much larger trend that is affecting many European nations and has reached the American soil - nationalism.
