EU Membership?

A Turkish author on trial over accusations that his latest book insulted Islam denied the charges Tuesday and insisted he was respectful of religion.

Nedim Gursel faces up to a year in prison if found guilty on charges of humiliating religious values and inciting religious hatred in his novel “The Daughters of Allah.”

Gursel, who was born in Turkey but has French citizenship and is based in France, is the latest intellectual to be prosecuted in Turkey under laws that restrict free speech.

Gursel is accused of mocking religious figures in his novel.

Hey, Rush Limbaugh was accused of mocking a political figure and he was targeted by the Executive Branch of the United States. At least Obama is consistent.
