HB Banned in Turkey

This morning I received an email from a correspondent in Turkey. He reports,

A Turkish court suspended access to your site. For some reason the Turkish state is blocking your site. Here is the message I get when I type the web site: Access to this site has been suspended in accordance with decision no: 2007/195 of the Turkish Republic Fatih 2nd. Civil Court of First Instance. (“Bu siteye erişim mahkeme kararıyla engellenmiştir. T.C. Fatih 2.Asliye Hukuk Mahkemesi 2007/195 Nolu Kararı gereği bu siteye erişim engellenmiştir.)

I’m not sure what I can do about it. I suppose it’s a badge of honor. It’s bizarre. The blog of a minor American cleric threatens the Turkish Republic? The Turkish Republic must be tottering.

WWAD? Would Would Attaturk Do? I doubt he would be banning blogs.

  1. Paul might appeal to his Roman citizenship. Guess that doesn’t help you, being un-Turkish and all. Looks like you’re stuck with a theology of the Cross…again.

  2. It’s not just your site that is banned in Turkey but any site hosted by WordPress.com… There was/is a critic of the Turkish government who blogs on WordPress.com and because wordpress wouldn’t censure him, the Turkish court banned the whole domain.
