Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Palestine, Turkey, Politics, Religion

Fayyad from Palestinian blog Kabobfest writes [1]about Abdulla Gul‘s election as Turkey's president. “Ironically, some secular extremists in Turkey, too (have) issue with the fact the Gul’s wife, Hayrunisa, wears a hijab, which is banned from all Turkish public institutions, and (for) some reason terrifies some, especially when Mrs. Gul wears into the presidential palace,” he writes.
