Murat Belge

the journalist Murat Belge has joined a large group of peope who are facing criminal trial and jail for insulting the President. Turkey therefore becomes a world freak by arresting those who insult a President.

"In the meantime, Nobel laureate novelist Orhan Pamuk was among those who followed Belge’s trial on Tuesday. Pamuk said he attended the trial to give support to Belge, adding that he has been reading Belge’s articles for 50 years, learned much from him and never witnessed his using an insulting language in his articles. The novelist said the insult charges directed against Belge and thousands of other people actually aim to silence independent thinking and intimidate government critics."

why are Europeans dealing with this rogue government? there is no such thing as "Europe" anymore, that's why.
