WordPress BANNED in Turkey

I never thought such thing would happen in a Turkey at least because they always try to polish themselves to look attractive for European Union; I guess we all have to agree with Matt at least because they aren't as restrictive as China

The short version of story is that they blocked because one of bloggers insulted Mr. Adnan Oktar / Harun Yahya. maybe my friend Bakkouz can tell us more about Harun Yahya as he translated one of Haron Yahya's sites into Arabic and for the long story you can check Why we're blocked in Turkey.

  1. You know, the main concern here isn't really the issue of censorship or freedom of speech, but the legal system itself that allowed such an order to take place.

    It would seem that the Turkish have made a habit of blocking websites since they've blocked youtube and flickr before, and now wordpress.

    This surely won't help Turkey's efforts to join the European Union :)

  2. I think it's because WordPress wears hijab!

Rules of war (in a nutshell) Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
