Those who rushed to analyze and take stances on the coup in Turkey, now have a second chance to reconsider the situation. It was neither the army as an integral institution that attempted a coup against legitimately-elected President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, nor the secular opposition. The attempted coup was carried out by Fethullah Gulen’s Islamic movement, or the “parallel structure,” as Erdogan calls and accuses the group of trying to seize control. This group is similar in its form, message and organizational structure to the Muslim Brotherhood, even though it is not related to it.
