Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan wants to ban YouTube and Facebook – and thus brings the president of his country on against him. Such a ban could not be done with it, says Abdullah Gul.

His foray had caused an international sensation: Preferably, the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan websites such as Facebook and YouTube would be completely prohibited in his country. But that it not only shocked many citizens – but also annoyed President Abdullah Gul. He has ruled his consent to such a ban. “A blockade is not at issue,” Gul told reporters on Friday.

Late Thursday evening Erdogan had announced in pro-government TV station ATV, after a successful performance of his AKP party in the municipal elections on 30 Want to ban Facebook and YouTube in March. His exact words were: “I will not allow our nation to Facebook and YouTube is sacrificed.”

Erdogan makes long been no secret of his dislike of the social media and the Internet. He criticized the fact that his political opponents – especially the Gülen network of Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, with which he delivers a power struggle – use the Internet to conduct a campaign against him.

The new thrust goes beyond the controversial law to Internet censorship. This Gül was approved in February with his signature. Even then, there had been massive protests against the regime in the country.

The law allows you to block websites within four hours. The current waiting period of up to 48 hours on a court order is no longer necessary. The government justified the law with the protection of privacy rights on the Internet. So should “insults” can be removed immediately.
