MEMRI: Professor From Van University in Turkey Commits Suicide After Five Months in Jail Without Trial

The professor involved had been thrown in jail, along with the president of Van University in Turkey, as part of the new ruling government's push to turn their country into an Islamic state, instead of the secular state that Mustafa Kemal "Ataturk" built. As is the case in the West, the university community abominates religion of all kinds. The difference is that we Christians put up with that, and simply decide to send our children elsewhere. Over in Turkey they arrest university presidents and other ranking professors and hold them in jail without trial until they kill themselves in their cells.

Tell me again about how dangerous Christian fundamentalism is supposed to be, and how peaceful Islam is supposed to be.
