Turkey does not allow Christians to build churches there. Christians in Turkey are denied full citizen rights. This is partly why Turkey is denied entry into the EU.The author of these articles was seen as obviously a Western Christian and therefore a fair mark to be ripped off. I find it chilling they wanted to know if he was travelling alone.
