Sunday, April 17, 2016 Islamic Near East History Week 9 - Turkey • In 1955, an Anti-Greek pogrom erupted in Istanbul, in which, 15-30 Greeks were killed and Greek businesses were destroyed. • Two important prime ministers alternated power. Their names were Salesman Demirel and Bulent Ecevit. Demirel, of the Justice Party, was a fascist, anti-foreign nationalist. Ecevit, of the Republican Party, was a communist socialist. • In the 1920s, Turkey’s economy was poor with illiterate subjects. It took 50 years to build up a Turkish middle-class. Turkey became more free-market oriented with this introduction of a new class. Politicians began to emerge that represented a shift back to Islam. • Necettin Erbakan (founder of the Welfare Party) inspired the movement of Islamic parties into politics until today, but the army still threatens to take back control should Islam interfere too much with the standard way of life. - Iran • 1941, Communist Party founded (Tudeh Party). • 1946, Soviets give up Republic of Mahabad. • Mohammad Mossadegh was the prime minister in 1951-53. He challenged the Shah, wanting him to reign rather than rule, like the Queen of England. He had no military background or economic knowledge. He was a lawyer who studied in Switzerland and was a member of the Qajar family. So, he was incorruptible in a corrupt system which gave him stature. He targeted the British and its monopoly on Iranian oil, and he nationalized oil. This angered the British who started working against Mossadegh. In 1953, demonstrations against him got out of control and the British intervened. The Shah fled to Rome and a coup toppled Mossadegh (15 killed). The real question is who was behind it? Obviously, America and Britain played a part, but what Iranians? 1
