Turkish Protests Not Like "Arab Spring"
However, there is a crucial difference. "The Arab spring" was more like an "Arab winter" as it was dominated by Islamist forces who opposed the current regimes because they were too secularist and too friendly to the West and Israel.
By contrast, the Turkish protests are explicitly anti-Islamist opposing the attempts by the AKP to gradually undo the secular heritage created by modern Turkey's founder, Kemal Atatürk, by for example more draconian alcohol restrictions. The secular anti-Islamist nature of the protests is illustrated by the fact that not only are a large portion of these protesters female, but virtually all of these female protesters don't wear a hijab (headscarf), as can be seen in the below pictures from the protests.
Of course, Obama and most Western leaders gave barely any support to the anti-Islamists in Iran, while supporting the Islamists during the Arab winter. Will they now abandon their buddy Erdogan just like they abandoned their former ally Mubarak?. Let's hope so, but I wouldn't bet on it.
