Noted, tweeted, tweeted, and shared. The way to take away freedom is to stop information from being available to the citizens. What they don't know can hurt.

As this Turkish government moves farther away from the secular principles of Ataturk towards a more religious government the citizens of Turkey can kiss any illusions of a free future goodbye. As the mullahs are given more power so will the power grabbing be racked skywards. This is not the first time in Turkey’s history that a secular government has been hijacked by religionists.
