Turkey gets off its high horse and releases the Israeli couple in their custody that did no harm
Turkey gets off its high horse and releases the Israeli couple in their custody that has done (almost) no harm.
The moving conversation between the mother, Natalie, and their joint song has touched the heart of many. The story of the innocent picture taken on a calm vacation that lead to a diplomatic crisis a-la "Midnight Express", swooped the whole country. A few thoughts on publishing following the storm in Turkey: firstly, the power of one camera and a photo that's worth a 1000 words. When you are about to share a story with photos, make sure it is up to the regulations – your own and the state's also. One thing is clear: the Turkish president did not want his story to come to light at this time.
Sometimes, the stories strength is within its silence. If a family member or a friend would have leaked the story, the iron door might have closed shut. We in Contento Now, walking hand in hand with our authors, keep many films and interviews in the safe. Make your choice whether you will publish and broadcast yourself in to the world, or keep the documents close to the chest.
Another Israeli held in Turkey is Albert Shaul, that was arrested whilst in his publishing journey with us. Today we broadcast a sneak peak from his interview in our offices.
When will you also choose to share your pictures that are worth a 1000 words with us?
