Many analysts believe that Erdogan's Turkey is very different from Ataturk's Turkey. The latest evidence of this is the conversion of the historic Aya Sofia Museum of Istanbul into a mosque. This was decided by a Turkish court last Friday. This court is called the Council of State.It has the status of a high administrative court. According to this court, it was illegal in 1934 to remove the status of the Sofia Mosque and turn it into a museum.
