Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan is now leading a country that has become a world power and a possible power player in reforming the Middle East, as Turkey has many powerful ties to other Middle-Eastern countries that can enable it to have a strong hand reform. Especially with its economy growing as the rest of the world struggles, Turkey has become a power that many did not expect and one that needs to be given attention. We seem to have overlooked Turkeys actual power until now, after its recent election; however, we did try to push the Turkish Model for other Middle-Eastern countries, who thought Turkey much too utilitarian. Now, though, these countries may just have to listen to Turkeys ideas for reform, as they are struggling too much with their own problems (Egypt and its upcoming election, Saudi Arabia with oil prices and the countries surrounding it, Israel) and will most likely fall under Turkeys influence as it gains more power with Erdogan in his third term. The U.S. would do well to strengthen its relationship with Turkey even more in the coming years, especially now that Turkey is the most powerful and prosperous Muslim country.
