If you are a political journalist, the last place you’d like to report about is Turkey from Turkey, the Muslim Brotherhood government of fanatic Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has the highest record of journalists behind bars for criticizing his way of democracy, a report said.
The Syrianews said in a report harshly critical of the Turkish government that “we have received several inquiries from our readers inside Turkey complaining they cannot reach our website while other readers who usually use proxy breakers can view it easily, but after the complains increased we decided to refer to an online tool to check whether www.syrianews.cc known to be highly critical of the heavy handed of the embattled and lost Turkish AKP government policies”.
According to Syrianews, here are the results:
“The online tool called Nimsoft Cloud offered by the website www.watchmouse.com pings a server or website using a network of over 30 monitoring stations worldwide, one of which is based in Istanbul, Turkey, as the above image shows and it’s the only station that returned ‘Unknown host: www.syrianews.cc‘ error message,” the report said.
The report quoted Turkish journalist and winner of the International Reporter of the Year Award given annually by the National Union of Italian Reporters (UNCI) as saying, “’Turkey is the biggest prison in Europe for journalists.”
CPJ, the Committee to Protect Journalists, wrote the following intro on their website: ‘The media environment under Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan remains extremely difficult. Journalists continue to be jailed, the government censors sensitive topics, and anti-press rhetoric from powerful figures emboldens prosecutors and prompts media owners to fire independent voices.’ commenting on a letter they sent to the Turkish prime minister dated September 16, 2013 and Hand-delivered via the Turkish Ministry of Justice. (CPJ calls on Erdoğan to embrace press freedom).
Wikipedia lists the names of a number of Turkish journalists imprisoned by Erdogan for daring to do their job and criticize his government, the list can be found here: (List of arrested journalists in Turkey).
Gezi Park and Taksim protests handling by Erdogan were dark black points in the history of extremely peaceful protests against municipal decisions that led to the killing of a number of unarmed protesters by the same criminal regime that hosts Alqaeda camps on their land. The same regime refusing to recognize the massacres of the Armenians last century and refusing to repent it.
“To be honest, it’s kind of chilling yet makes us proud at www.syrianews.cc to have our site blocked by one of the most hypocrite fanatic regimes in the modern days. Isn’t it the same regime that is the most outspoken against the Syrian state for the latter’s cracking down on Alqaeda FSA terrorists and their Wahhabi Cannibal Sex Jihad in Syria? Maybe Erdogan has some comfort now seeing the Al Saud regime in Arabia joining his ‘push for democracy’ elsewhere than in their own countries,” the report added.
The following is a message by prominent German journalist Jurgen Elsasser addressing Erdogan, slamming the dictator and caliph wannabe for his policies towards Syria, the video clip has English subtitles, you may have to open it in YouTube and turn CC on, Hello Erdogan.
“Go ahead Erdogan, block our website and jail reporters in your country, you are exposed beyond repair and your days are numbered,” the report concluded.
