Hrant Dink News from Erkan Saka's anthropological blog

Erkan is covering the media reports on the death of journalist Hrant Dink .

He posts: What Did Turkish Columnists Write About Hrant Dink's Murder?

“I have never called anyone a “traitor” in my whole life. I have not even called Ali Kemal a “traitor.” I am using this word for the first time for [Dink's] murderer. Yes, who ever did this, is a true traitor [to Turkey]. He is an enemy of Turkey, the Turkish Republic and all her citizens... Trust me, this murder will make two groups of people very happy – the racist Turks and the racist Armenians. All others should go into a deep mourning starting today.”
-- Ertugrul Ozkok, Hurriyet
