Orham Pamuk wins Nobel Prize in Literature
He's been very outspoken about the genocide of Armenians.

Meanwhile the French Parliament passed a very interesting law re Turkey and the Armenians today.
<snip>
The French parliament has adopted a bill making it a crime to deny that Armenians suffered "genocide" at the hands of the Turks, infuriating Turkey.

The bill, which provides for a year in jail and a heavy fine, still needs approval from the Senate and president.

I can't wait for them to pass a similar law re Iraq and the Americans & Brits.
