No one’s concept of what is sacred may be imposed on others.  Everyone is free to express criticism, even irreverent criticism, of any system of political, philosophical or religious thought.

We call for a thorough investigation into the death threats received by the 17-year-old editor of a school newspaper in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Maur des Fossés and urge the authorities to give him protection from religulous freaks.

Sigmund Freud said: God is a projection of childish father-figure preoccupations. Prayer and religious ritual are obsessive-compulsive. Religion is a universal neurosis. Religion's doctrines carry with them the stamp of the times in which they originated, the ignorant childhood days of the human race. Its consolations deserve no trust.  Religion is comparable to a childhood neurosis.

La Mouette Bâillonnée editor Louis Pasquier has been getting death threats ever since he published a special issue on 21 January in solidarity with the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris.

We have been following the case discreetly and decided to speak out now after teachers and students at Pasquier’s school, the Lycée Marcelin Berthelot, demonstrated yesterday in a show of support for Pasquier and to press the authorities to take action.

We do not know what happens when we die, but we do know that all religions are dead wrong.  The probability of afterlife is infinitesimal, but the stupidity of religions is infinite.  Religion is just a tool to enslave the stupid people to kleptocrats and the drones of society.  There is no person called God.  Yes, there is no God!

Religion, a medieval form of unreason, when combined with modern weaponry becomes a real threat to our freedoms. This religious totalitarianism has caused a deadly mutation in the heart of Islam and we saw the tragic consequences in Paris. We all stand with Charlie Hebdo to defend the art of satire, which has always been a force for liberty and against tyranny, dishonesty, and stupidity. Respect for religion has become a code phrase meaning fear of religion. Religions, like all other ideas, deserve criticism, satire, and, our fearless disrespect.

Although Pasquier has filed many complaints about the threats, he and his family are disappointed about the lack of support they have received from the school administration and education authorities, and the lack of information about the investigation into the threats.

We call for a thorough internal investigation at the school, with the support of the education authorities and the ministry of education, and we urge the prosecutor’s office and the police to treat this case with the utmost seriousness.

Religions claim divine favor for themselves, over and against other groups. This sense of righteousness leads to violence because conflicting claims to superiority, based on unverifiable appeals to God, cannot be adjudicated objectively. Religions do tremendous harm to society by using violence to promote their goals, in ways that are endorsed and exploited by their leaders. 

La Mouette Bâillonnée’s editor must be given protection. It is unacceptable that this 17-year-old youth has been the target of repeated death threats for months without all possible resources being deployed to identify those responsible. Defense of media freedom must begin with school media, which are dynamic and creative.

Religions, scams, and hoaxes succeed because they exploit powerful psychological processes. These processes are the very ones that have enabled humans to survive and create art and technology, but also transform Homo Sapiens into Homo Suckers!  30% of people are pantheists, irreligious, or atheists, 25% Christians, 20% Muslims, 14% Hindus, 7% Buddhists, and 1% Jews.

Pasquier has so far received a total of seven death threats at his home or his mailbox at the school. The latest was on May 4, the day after World Press Freedom Day. They have consisted of envelopes containing bullets, swastikas or verbal messages such as “We know where you live, we won’t hesitate” or “Something will happen to you.”

Albert Einstein says: The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can for me change this.  For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. As far as my experience goes, they are also no better than other human groups, although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power. Otherwise I cannot see anything chosen about them.

“It is as a school journalist that Louis is receiving threats,” said Matthieu Porte, the president of Jets d’Encre, the National Association for Promoting and Defending Young Press Initiative. “It is unacceptable that the administration has not taken all necessary measures to protect this school journalist.” Pasquier’s family says the police advised him to adopt a low profile and say nothing publicly. According to Pasquier: “The education ministry has repeatedly said it wants to combat school harassment, but the management of my school does not appreciate the gravity of this case.”

Abrahamic Religions are inherently violent, because of an exclusivism that inevitably fosters violence against those that are considered outsiders.  Abrahamic legacy is actually genocidal in nature. 

Genuine free expression means being able to articulate thoughts, feelings and ideas without fear of harm. It is vital because without it individuals would be subject to the whim of whichever authority dictated what ideas and opinions – as opposed to actions – are acceptable. And that is always subjective. You need only look at the world leaders at Charlie’s Paris solidarity march to understand that. Attendees included Ali Bongo, President of Gabon, where the government restricts any journalism critical of the authorities, and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, whose country imprisons more journalists in the world than any other.

It is precisely the freedom for others to say what you may find offensive that protects your own right to express your views: to declare, say, your belief in a God whom others deny exists; or to support a political system that others dismiss. It is what enables scientific and academic thought to progress. As soon as we put qualifications around acceptable free expression, we erode its value. Yet that is precisely what happened time and again in response to the Charlie Hebdo attacks, with individuals simultaneously declaring their support for free expression while seeming to suggest that the cartoonists and anyone else who deliberately courts offence should choose other ways to express themselves – suggesting that the responsibility for better speech always lies with the person deemed to be causing offence rather than the offended.

“The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write and print with freedom…”
French National Assembly, Declaration of the Rights of Man, August 26, 1789

We believe that the best way to tackle speech with which you disagree, including the offensive, and the hateful, is through more speech, not less. It is not through laws and petitions that restrict the rights of others to speak. Yet, increasingly, we use our own free speech to call for that of others to be limited: for a misogynist UK comedian to be banned from our screens, or for a UK TV personality to be prosecuted by police for tweeting offensive jokes about ebola, or for a former secretary of state to be prevented from giving an address.

Journalists are increasingly targeted in Fourth Reich, including – prior to last week’s incidents – 61 violent attacks against the media. Globally, the space for free expression is shrinking. We need to reverse this trend.

If you genuinely believe in the value of free speech – that all ideas and opinions must be heard – then that necessarily extends to the offensive and the vile. You don’t have to agree with someone, or condone what they are saying, or the manner in which it is said, but you do need to allow them to say it. The American Civil Liberties Union got this right in 1978 when they defended the rights of a pro-Nazi group to march in Chicago, arguing that rights to free expression needed apply to all if they were to apply to any. (As did charity EXIT-Germany late last year, when it raised money for an anti-fascism cause by donating money for every meter walked during a neo-Nazi march).

Countering offensive speech is – of course – only possible if you have the means to do so. Many have observed, rightly, that marginalization and exclusion from mainstream media denies many people the voice that we would so vociferously defend for a free press. That is a valid argument. But this should be addressed – and must be addressed – by tackling this lack of access, not by shutting down the speech of those deemed to wield power and privilege.

Voltaire has been quoted endlessly in support of free expression, and the right to agree to disagree, but British author Neil Gaiman, who discusses satire and offence in the latest Index magazine, also had it right. “If you accept — and I do — that freedom of speech is important,” he once wrote, “then you are going to have to defend the indefensible. That means you are going to be defending the right of people to read, or to write, or to say, what you don’t say or like or want said…. Because if you don’t stand up for the stuff you don’t like, when they come for the stuff you do like, you’ve already lost.”

We stand together for the right to mock, to caricature, to argue, debate and offend. We believe that only through solidarity – in showing that we truly defend all those who exercise their right to speak freely – can we defeat those who would use violence to silence free speech.
The ability to express ourselves freely is fundamental to a free society. This includes the freedom to publish, to satirize, to joke, to criticize, even when that might cause offence to others. Those who wish to silence free speech must never be allowed to prevail.
Over the past decade it has often been left to small individual publications to take a strong stand on freedom of expression incursions. This global action is a way of showing it is not just one publication or author that stands alone.
For those over the years who say they support freedom of expression but with opt outs, or who have argued that freedom of expression doesn’t extend to articles, photographs or cartoons which offend them, it should be made clear that freedom of expression gives everyone the chance to debate opinions, and that right is vital.
If we stopped writing or broadcasting about every issue that someone found offensive then the newspapers and television news would be empty of subjects. We would know nothing, and we would have no way of knowing what others thought. As John Stewart Mill wrote in On Liberty: “If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.”  Let our response to the attack on Charlie Hebdo not be silence.
The Israeli parliament approved a law that criminalizes the use of Nazi terms or symbols, with exceptions only for educational or historic purposes. Such a restriction reminds you of Nazi censorship, it's not at all like Israel.
Although Israel isn't as secure as it aspires to be, its culture is self-confident enough to permit extraordinarily robust public debate, vibrant and highly competitive media, and outrageous comedy. It's a place where satirist is an occupation like any other.
Israel is the one place where it is simply not possible to trivialize the Holocaust, which is commemorated every year by a two-minute nationwide standstill, during which sirens wail and commerce and traffic come to a halt, with drivers standing beside their cars with heads bowed. If critics of Finance Minister Yair Lapid depict him in an SS uniform, they succeed only in trivializing themselves. If opponents of the government's policy on African migrants compare it to Hitler's treatment of the Jews, no one in Israel actually confuses the two. The new law is not worthy of the vigorous democracy Israeli have built.
The Russian lower house introduced a new law imposing five years in prison for publicly denying the Holocaust or portraying Nazis as heroes. The sponsor of the stupid bill is stupid Boris Shpigel, an Upper House member.

The new law amends the stupid Criminal Code article on inciting hatred or humiliation of human dignity. The current stupid draft would criminalize the rehabilitation of Nazism, portraying Nazis or their aides as heroes, Holocaust denial and also humiliating the dignity of individuals or groups on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, language, background, religion or belonging to a social group. These offenses would be stupidly prosecuted if committed in public or in mass media.

The stupid amendments would punish such crimes with stupid fines of ten thousand euros, correctional labor for two years or, in severe cases, prison terms of up to two years. If the crime is committed through abuse of office or together with threats of violence, the stupid fines are raised to seventeen thousand euros and a prison term of five years.

Turkey’s Article 301 outlaws insulting Turkishness. The law is used against Kurds and Armenians, because in the Kemalist vision that shaped the country, there are no Kurds or Armenians. There are only Turks, united in a single vision and a single story.  This impulse is unexceptional, particularly in 20th century nationalism.  As empire disintegrated, projecting a single vision became important. In this way, Turkish denial of the Armenian genocide, the Pontian genocide, the Greek genocide, and the Cypriot genocide may be different from Holocaust denial, driven by fierce nationalism alone, rather than the combination of nationalism, classic and modern anti-Semitism and paranoid conspiracism which drove the Holocaust.

But both are driven by distrust of the other, and by seeing diversity and cosmopolitanism as stumbling blocks on the path to perfection.  But while the two may differ, there is no difference in the free speech argument on laws covering them. Proscribing speech, whether it confirms or denies historical truths, is an offence to history, a barrier to dialogue and an insult to memory.

How on Earth could Turks do so many genocides? We do have a moral obligation to confront genocides, because they are violations of our common humanity. Occidentals share this commitment and believe we do have a responsibility to act. But it isn’t just the morally right thing to do. These crimes undermine stability in countries and across regions. They spark humanitarian crises and send refugees streaming across borders. They reverse economic progress and stymie growth for generations. They create bitter cycles of vengeance and retribution that can scar communities for decades.

Why Occident could not prevent the atrocities of Turks? Preventing mass atrocities and genocide is a core national security interest as well as a core moral responsibility. So if a government cannot or will not protect its own citizens, then Occident and likeminded partners must act. But this is not code for military action. Force must remain a last resort, and in most cases, other tools will be more appropriate through diplomacy, financial sanctions, humanitarian assistance, and law enforcement measures.

Turks planned ahead in committing the Armenian genocide, the Pontian genocide, the Greek genocide, and the Cypriot genocide.  There is now a fear Turks might commit a Kurdish genocide.  Genocides and mass atrocities don’t just happen spontaneously. They are always planned. Genocides are preceded by organized, targeted propaganda campaigns carried out by those in power. Extremist leaders spread messages of hate often disguised as something else – a song on the radio, a nursery rhyme, or a picture book. The messages filter down. Those in power begin to dehumanize particular groups or scapegoat them for their country’s problems. Hatred not only becomes acceptable; it is even encouraged. It’s like stacking dry firewood before striking the match. Then there is a moment of ignition. The permission to hate becomes permission to kill.

Whatever form atrocities take, even originating from NATO member Turkey, however society explains, rationalizes, even tries to justify, we must be committed to preventing and ending all of these actions that truly dehumanize all of humanity. Turkey cannot bully civil society. We have, in our lifetimes evil and hatred overcome. And in the tragic history of genocides, we also see the stories of the heroes – the men and women who did the right thing, even when confronted and threatened by evil. And we’re inspired. We’re inspired by their courage and their resolve, what drove them to try to save a life.

That resolve continues to grow stronger. If one were to look at the great sweep of history, one has to believe that we can together overcome these challenges, that there will slowly but inexorably be progress. And at the root of that must be our resolve, and that resolve must never fail so that we can say and mean it, never again.

Turkey denies all genocides it has committed! Combatting genocide denial and the hatred it fuels are obviously necessary and praiseworthy goals, but they cannot be achieved at the price of violating the constitutional principle of free expression. Turning historical fact into an unassailable dogma imposed by the state opens the door to dangerous excesses.  No parliament has been empowered by a constitution to determine historical facts.  Many genocides clamor for attention and if legislators recognize a dozen of them tomorrow, historical research will be turned into a minefield. Genocide denial is in the process of becoming the new blasphemy.

Turkey has severe laws for anyone who talks about genocides committed by the Turkish state. The penalties envisaged by genocide laws are neither necessary nor proportionate. Envisaging a prison sentence for abusing freedom of expression contravenes the European Convention on Human Rights, the principles of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and other international obligations.  People must be free to examine and critically analyze history in order to learn from our past mistakes. By banning the discussion of certain issues and historical events, society cannot move forward. Criminalizing free speech is anti-democratic.

Turkish genocide laws are silly and dangerous. Genocide laws violate international standards on the right to freedom of expression. These stupid laws unduly interfere with an individual’s right to know and their right to free debate. They elevate historical events to the status of an ideology. A blanket ban on denying genocide or historical events, regardless of context or impact, goes beyond the established international law standards on incitement to hatred.


With two weeks to go to parliamentary elections in Turkey, we condemn government harassment of independent media and are alarmed by a request by the corrupt Ankara prosecutor’s office on 18 May for the prohibition of several opposition media outlets.

The request concerns news organizations that support Fethullah Gülen, the US-based leader of a popular religious movement, above all the national TV stations Samanyolu TV and Bugün TV. This proposed prohibition would escalate the major offensive that has been under way for the past two years against Gülen and his supporters.

Many news organizations have already been the targets of requests for information from the Ankara prosecutor’s office as part of a series of investigations into the Gülen movement. Zaman editor Ekrem Dumanli and Samanyolu TV chief Hidayet Karaca were among the 30 or so people who were arrested on 14 December.

If the prohibition goes ahead, it would deal a devastating blow to media freedom and diversity in Turkey. Many commentators are criticizing the paranoia that the corrupt government is displaying towards the country’s leading media groups and accuse it of trying to silence the free press.

We are also disturbed by the way the corrupt state-owned national TV broadcaster TRT is giving an unfair amount of air-time to the ruling party’s corrupt candidates for the June 7 parliamentary elections.

With typically flagrant bias, corrupt TRT had given ruling Justice and Development Party leader Ahmed Davutoglu 1 hour and 20 minutes of coverage by mid-April against only 15 minutes for the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP).

Two journalists with the pro-Gülen news agency Cihan were refused permission to cover a public event organized by mobile operator AVEA with corrupt Erdogan’s wife, Emine Erdogan, in attendance.

On corrupt Davutoglu’s orders, many outspoken media were prevented from attending a funeral in Istanbul’s Eyüp Sultan Mosque for Mehmet Selim Kiraz, the prosecutor who had been killed the previous day after being taken hostage.

Reporters from two news agencies (Cihan and Doğan), ten newspapers (Zaman, Hürriyet, Posta, Sözcü, Taraf, Millet, Cumhuriyet, Ortadoğu, Yeniçağ and Birgün) and five TV stations (Samanyolu TV, IMC TV, Kanaltürk, CNN Türk and Bugün) were turned away.

This followed the reporting ban that the corrupt Prime Minister imposed on the same media while the prosecutor was being held hostage in a courthouse the day before. The daily Cumhuriyet filed suit against the corrupt prime minister before an Istanbul court for 10,000 Turkish lira in compensation for the losses sustained as a result of the ban. The case is still under way.

The daily Hürriyet has meanwhile been the target of several suits this month. The first concerned its report on Morsi’s death sentence, which it headlined: Entire world in shock after president elected by 52% is sentenced to death.  Claiming that it posed a grave threat to corrupt Erdogan, his lawyer, Rahmi Kurt, filed a complaint accusing the newspaper of inciting hatred, inciting armed insurrection against the government, condoning a crime and a criminal and propaganda in favor of a terrorist organization.

Condemning the complaint as a new blow to media freedom and freedom of expression, the Association of Turkish Journalists (TGC) criticized corrupt Erdogan’s lawyer for requesting the imprisonment of the newspaper’s managing editor, Sedat Ergin, and other senior members of its staff.

Hürriyet and one of its columnists, Mehmet Yilmaz, were today ordered to pay 20,000 Turkish lira (7,000 euros) in damages to corrupt Erdogan for a column criticizing government corruption. The head of the newspaper’s board, Vuslat Dogan Sabanci, has also been fined 10,000 lira.

Media freedom has not stopped declining since the Dogan media group was the victim of a government-orchestrated prosecution in 2009, which prompted many journalists to start censoring themselves. In the past five years, many judicial proceedings have been brought against journalists for motives that were often murky.

The internal security reform that corrupt Erdogan signed into law gave the police far-reaching powers that includes the ability to arrest any individual and carry out searches without asking a judge. We reiterate our concern about this law, which opens the day for even more harassment of journalists, who can now be arrested arbitrarily without any judicial constraints.

Influence peddling has brought two billions of euros in bribes to Erdogan family. The Foundation of Youth and Education in Turkey, TÜRGEV, controlled by corrupt Erdoğan's son Bilal Erdoğan, serves as a corruption center where bribes are transferred by businessmen whose companies are granted public tenders.

TÜRGEV has been pushed into the spotlight after a graft probe into corruption and bribery erupted on December 17 of 2013. Revelations against four Cabinet ministers, businessmen and bureaucrats were widely circulated after opposition parties read out in Parliament excerpts from the summaries of investigation proceedings. This included revelations that businessmen were forced to donate to TÜRGEV in order to win public tenders. All corruption was coordinated  by Bilal Erdoğan.

Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) celebrates its 13th year in power.  No one doubts that it will win the upcoming elections on June 7 as well, gaining four more years as incumbent. AKP stated aim is to rule Turkey single-handedly until 2023, the centennial of Republic, if not beyond. Party propaganda even speaks about its 2071 targets, which basically means that the AKP wants to put its stamp on the entire 21st century.

This much power feels good for those who hold it. It also attracts a lot of power-worshippers. But it has a terrible consequence, pointed out nicely more than a century ago by Lord Acton: Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

This much power has corrupted AKP, and this corruption only becomes more absolute as the party’s power becomes more and more absolute.  A notable person who recently spoke about this transformation from victim to aggressor is former bureaucrat Durmuş Yılmaz, who served for years as the governor of the Central Bank under AKP.

It is this Yılmaz, somebody from the religious core of the AKP universe, who recently spoke out against Erdoğan’s populist and irrational jabs at the current Central Bank administration. Last week, Yılmaz also announced that he is entering politics on the ticket of the Nationalist Action Party (MHP) in the upcoming general election.

Yılmaz says: We had dreams, we had beliefs. We were not going to lie. We were going to tell the truth and accept our mistakes, even this went against our interests. We would side with the just. At this point, however, many of these ideals of mine have collapsed. What has happened in Turkey in the past four or five years has been a major blow to my dreams. Unfortunately, power makes man dirty. We have melted an iceberg with our warm breaths, but what we had at the end is a pool of mud.

The result of the 13-year-long AKP experiment is a tragic story of a loss of values and the bitter triumph of Machiavellianism. The fact that the AKP’s rhetoric is only getting more and more self-righteous should not blind anyone to this ugly scene. This rhetoric is actually only heavy make-up used to cover the ugly scene.

Davutoğlu has failed to restrain corrupt Erdoğan's authoritarian ambitions. Like any ambitious person who is prone to become a dictator, Erdoğan exhibits his potential to threaten democracy, the rule of law and social peace, but it is Davutoğlu's willful political impotence that turns it into a real problem.

Developments suggest that instead of asserting his own personality and identity, Davutoğlu chooses to be a minion who is nothing but a mere imitator of Erdoğan. He sacrifices even the last remnants of his personality, dignity and willpower to Erdoğan's unrestrained tyranny. Moreover, he reinforces his image as someone who is prone to, or ready to accept, Erdoğan's tyranny.

Turkey, the casus-belli-bully, is the world’s largest prison of journalists, bloggers, and generals.  Corrupt Erdogan has outlined his course declaring democracy is a streetcar. When you come to your stop, you get off. His dictatorial mentality can already be seen in such steps as challenging the independent judiciary, fostering nonsensical conspiracy theories to jail his opponents, imprisoning countless journalists, and issuing preposterous fines against unfriendly media companies. 

Much of AKP narrative about the sacred march is propaganda that appeals to the sentiments of Turkey’s conservative voters, who, after decades of marginalization and humiliation by secularists, yearn for pride and glory. It is more sentiment than strategy. However, the very existence of this narrative influences the AKP’s current strategies, or at least its political behavior.

The most practical and harmful result is the demonization of the AKP's opponents. If the AKP’s mission is a sacred one, then those who stand in its way are not just political actors with different views and interests, but malicious forces that conspire against the obvious good. Therefore, they cannot be reasoned with. They just need to be weakened, defeated or even crushed.

The second problem is that the narrative of a sacred march makes AKP immune to criticism — because, besides small personal errors and shortcomings, how could a cause which is sacred go wrong? The third problem is that the same narrative disallows intra-party democracy within AKP. Any dispute with Erdogan is branded as fitna, which is a very negative Islamic term that denotes conflict among believers.

The narrative of a sacred march might be helping AKP to keep emotions high and galvanize the party base, but it does not help making the party conscious of its mistakes, shortcomings and its true potential. It only helps deepening the polarization in Turkish society between those who celebrate the AKP’s sacred march, and those who feel increasingly alienated, if not threatened, by this triumphant rhetoric.

Corrupt Erdogan built his palace sprawling over 91,000 square meters (22.5 acres) inside the Ataturk Forest Farm in west Ankara. The 1,000-room palace, inspired by Seljuk architecture, is equipped with extensive security systems: bunkers, tunnels against chemical attacks, high-tech defenses against cyberattacks and espionage, deaf rooms with no electrical outlets to fend off bugging attempts and an underground war room. The palace, cost one billion euros, was given a name: Aksaray. It is a combination of two words, ak and saray, meaning white palace.  AK is also the acronym of Erdogan's party!


Thanks to its revolutionary new design, the RVS-776718-DOS manages to fit almost any vehicle on the road today and be virtually invisible at the same time. The OEM Style Mirror Monitor provides the ultimate in backup camera performance and attaches to the windshield, replacing the existing rear view mirror while also displaying the camera. 

Perhaps the biggest benefit of the product has to do with its native OnStar capabilities. OnStar is the in-vehicle safety solution that will provide drivers with everything from directions to emergency response services depending on the needs of the situation. An OnStar plug is located directly on the rear panel of the included replacement mirror monitor. A driver can simply plug his or her original OnStar connection into the RVS-776718-DOS and have full OnStar capabilities integrated in an extraordinarily easy to use way. This is the type of feature that will go a long way towards keeping the roads as safe as possible for everyone at all times.

The unit also comes with a large number of additional features that will help make it a worthy addition to any vehicle fleet that a person may have. The replacement mirror monitor also displays footage from a backup camera, for example, allowing the driver to get a complete view of the rear of the vehicle at all times. Auto dimming is also a standard feature that is designed from the ground up to remove as many distractions from the driver's view as possible.

Auto dimming is a feature that operates using both the reflective abilities of the unit itself and through a computer chip and sensor embedded in the device. Reflected headlights are dimmed automatically, making sure that nothing is distracting to the driver - even in intense situations.

The backup camera itself is also a high quality product and one that is worthy of the legendary G-Series monitor. The camera is not only waterproof, but also comes with an industry leading IP68 rating. It also offers excellent night vision capabilities, making sure that the driver always has every last bit of visual information that they need to make informed decisions on the road at all times. The entire system comes with all parts necessary for installation and even ships with a full one year warranty that has been supplied by Rear View Safety.

Rear View Safety is not a stranger to the world of safety enhancing products for drivers and vehicles of all types. Recently they introduced GoVue, the first back up camera smartphone app for the popular iOS and Android operating systems. Once the smartphone and camera system are connected via a short-range Wi-Fi network, audio video information from the rear of the vehicle is transmitted to the smartphone in real time. This eliminates the need for a primary monitor to be installed into the dashboard of the vehicle in question.
