dbo:abstract
  • The Felicity Party (Turkish: Saadet Partisi) is an Islamist Turkish political party founded in 2001. It is mainly supported by conservative Muslims in Turkey. It was founded on 20 July 2001 after the Virtue Party (FP) was banned by the Constitutional Court. While the party's reformist wing formed the Justice and Development Party (AKP), the hardliners founded the Felicity Party. Although an Islamist party, its policy platform covers the whole span of political issues in Turkey. The Felicity Party's vote has been weakened by the success of the moderately Islamic Justice and Development Party government, although it has repeatedly condemned the Turkish government's desire to join the European Union, military ties with Israel and the United States. It has argued that Turkey must adapt its military and foreign policy stance to meet what it argues are increasing threats coming from the West to all Muslim countries. The Felicity Party's policy platform is based strongly around Necmettin Erbakan's ideas and philosophy. The Felicity Party works both as a political party and an enormous social organization. It has party branches in nearly every district, small town and city in the country. In the past it has organized demonstrations on a wide range of issues, often involving tens of thousands of participants. Thousands of protesters joined SP organized demonstrations against the 2004 attack on Fallujah, against the cartoons of Muhammad in newspapers around the world, and most recently against Israel's invasion of Gaza during the 2008–2009 Israel–Gaza conflict.
