Yes, it’s true. You have perhaps heard or read about the suicide-bombing this morning, near the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Shortly thereafter, it came out that the perpetrators were probably ISIS. Due to their Islamist-leaning government, the Turkish people have had their internet access cut off, and web sites of news organizations blocked. A friend who is in the know (used to live in Istanbul) tells me that the Turkish government often blocks web sites that post the news about what is really going on in their neck of the woods. In this attack, ten people were murdered, nine of whom were German tourists.
If you have friends or relatives in Turkey, send them the link to this article. They might be interested in the real news. We in the West, who take our press freedom for granted, need to help those in the Middle East who have NO press freedom to learn the real news.
