Turkish Critic Of Islamic Groups Gunned Down

Necip Hablemitoglu, a historian, was shot and killed near his home in Ankara.

He was the author of a book which accused Turkey-based German foundations of working to undermine Turkish interests. The representatives of the foundations are scheduled to stand trial later this month on charges of conspiring against Turkey.

Here is why an Islamic Reformation into a more tolerant and peaceful belief system will be a long time coming if it happens at all: Critics are silenced.

While that may be true, the Turkish media at least isn't being "silenced". As long as people are hearing and seeing these terrorist acts, it should encourage people to realize that radical islam is not a good thing. Turkey is going through a very crucial time right now, and it has to make up its mind how they are going to deal with fundamental islamists.
