from Turkey’s Gul says pleased with increasing consencus on new ..

President Gul attended the World Leaders Forum at the Columbia University in New York and delivered a speech “What Next? Turkey’s Global Vision for a Prosperous Future”.

Referring to the blocked access to some global sites, President Gul said, “I want to reiterate once again that it is not a censor. The problem stems from deficiencies in our tax laws. I have been encouraging both the government and the parliament to upgrade those laws.”

This statement is qualitatively not different from Iran’s president who denied existence of gays in Iran… I know personally Mr. Gül does not have ill intentions but he is definitely misinformed… I wonder if he needs to be informed at all. It is so easy to know the nature of web censorship in Turkey…
