<< .... Turkey has lifted its ban on YouTube after three and a half years. The company was keen to stress it had taken no action itself, but understood that a third party had removed content which the Turkish authorities found objectionable. >>

"Given the YouTube ban, one could surmise that Turks' love for Ataturk and everything he stood for is not a matter of choice but of compulsion. But don't tell that to the young man who posted a ghastly YouTube video of himself painting a portrait of Ataturk with his own blood. And don't tell it to any of the tattooed Kemalists. Their commitment to Ataturk, they will tell you, is a matter of responsibility--not even to Ataturk himself, but to a secular Turkey that, in their eyes, is slipping away."

<< Update: Google has reinstated the Atatürk-insulting videos that caused the Turkey's 30-month YouTube ban, setting up yet another run-in with local authorities just days after a Turkish court lifted the ban.
