    A new report from the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom shines the light on 16 nations for violating religious rights.

    This year, Turkey joins the list of the worst violators, which includes Tajikistan, Myanmar, North Korea, Egypt, Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, China, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.

    Turkey was cited by the commission for "systematic and egregious limitations" on religious liberty.

    In an annual report released on Thursday, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), the top judicial body to rule on human rights violations in Europe, found that Turkey is by far the worst violator of human rights among the 47 signatory states of the European Convention on Human Rights.

    Applications to the European Court of Human Rights

    Turkey : 1,18 applications per 10.000 population, total applications: 8702

    Sweden: 2,02 applications per 10.000 population, total applications: 1899

    Serbia: 5,1 applications per 10.000 population, total applications: 3730

    Turkey's population is multiple the size of Serbia+Sweden combined.
    They still have higher application-rates to European Court per 10.000 population.


    When will Israel sign European Convention on Human Rights and grant the Palestinians the right to sue Israel at European Court of Human Rights?
    You don't have the same standards as Turkey has.
    Turkey signed the convention and its judiciary is subordinated to a transnational Court, and all of its citizens have access and right to sue Turkey at Strassbourg.

    If Israel would've signed European Convention on Human Rights, and the Palestinians had access to Human Rights Court in Strassbourg they'd file a record number of applications due to Israel dropping phosphor-bombs upon them and pumping out their drinking-water to redirdect it to Israel settlements.

    If you don't measure yourself by same standards, you don't have right to talk.

    Mabye USA should sign European Convention on Human Rights also and by that subordinate its judiciary to European Court of Human Rights.
    I'd be interested to see, what the European Court of Human Rights would rule about things like Fallujah, Guantanamo or Abu-Ghraib.

    But that will never happen, off course, some people prefer to point the finger at others instead the finger pointed at them.

    Null and void. So says Turkey.

    We're not slaughtering our people. So says Syria.

    See the comparison. :)
