As highly as I valued this summers judgement to not ban the Islamic AKP party (that won over 46% of the parliamentary seats in the last elections), I am shocked by this decision. Freedom of speech and a free press are the pillars of democracy. If religion is turned into politic dogma, a free society cannot evolve. Such acts hollow out the meaning of democracy. I am not only talking about Muslim countries - the same judgement applies to the Superchurch America of George W.
