Gaza celebrates Erdogan's victory

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip took to the streets yesterday evening to celebrate the victory of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The Palestinians described the resounding victory of Erdogan's party as a kind of "landslide victory" for political Islam when it has a free democratic atmosphere.
