Turkey, a member of NATO along with the United States, for years was regarded as a moderate Muslim nation with Western leanings.
But it recently has taken a sharp turn toward full-blown Islamic law and persecution of non-Muslims.
It just got worse, with a statement from a high government official that Turkey wants all governments across Europe to criminalize “Islamophobia,” which would include any negative comment about the religion.
The report comes from Uzay Bulut, a journalist from Turkey who has worked with the Haym Salomon Center. She’s currently based in Washington and writes at the Gatestone Institute.
