VIENNA (Reuters) - Europe's main security and human rights watchdog said Monday Turkey was blocking some 3,700 Internet sites for "arbitrary and political reasons" and urged legal reforms to show its commitment to freedom of expression.

Turkish citizens need to step up to the plate on this issue.

Turkey's a very strange place - from what I understand, the military seems to be the biggest single faction in support of civil liberties in the country, and they're constantly at odds with bureaucrats and elected officials who keep trying to turn it in to a theocracy. I doubt it's that simple, but it's the impression I get.

It is definitely a strange country. From the bit that I've read about Turkey, the elected officials are split about being 'secular' rather than a theocracy... and the population is equally split... The reason the secular crowd manages to keep ahead of the theocracy is the success of their economy. If the economy was failing and there was more poverty, the howling zealots would have the upper hand.
