There is again that 'little' issue of the still officially denied Massacre of the Armenians....solely because they were Christians who did not accept Islam. -:)-:)
I am the Türk who wrote the 118th post and the others stated in the 118th post.
The issue you want us to accept is genocide, not massacre.Some westerns want us to accept that we did the same thing what Hitler did to jews in Armenian issue.In France, saying "no genocide" is banned even if the sayer is a historician or a political party leader.Can you imagine that?Also, in that events, Armenians attacked unarmed Turkish people, even when Ottoman army was in the WW1.They want freedom, nobody gives freedom to others in Europe, too.Look at Samis, look at Helvetians, look at Valons, look at Basque people, look at IRA bla bla bla.Anyway, for the sake of creating Great Armenia, if you start to kill Turks or other muslims, they will of course have a response, too.But, i mean the paramilitary folk people, gangs.Armenians had gangs, too.Before, that events, Armenians were too rich with the gold trade etc. while Türks were peasant and just soldier.Ottoman officers decided to exile them to Syria, but there was not enough security for them.Some gangs attacked them in the voyage, epidemic invasions were not cut due to the lack of enough health measures, officer didn't make their duty well, but the country was in the WW1.I am a grandson and an eyewitness of the people who saw what cruelties which Armenians did against unarmed Türks.So, we have own stories, too.In that era, there were some racist attitudes, too.Actors were not just the Türks.You don't know what Bulgars, Greeks did to Türks in Balkans.You don't know and don't want to know their pains, too.But, i don't accuse any nation particularly with racism.Because, human is human everywhere and in all eras, nations have some similar thoughts, ideologies.In that era, racism was stronger.But, we can't be the only victim of racism during the WW1 history.The point we don't and won't accept is this double-standard.Armenians were racist, too against us.They still use Mountain Ağrı(currently inside the Turkish borders) as an anthem.Get it?Yeah, there were massacres like in everywhere, sometimes against us, sometimes by us but we have never did a systematic genocide like Hitler did against Jews.They want us to accept genocide, not massacre.And i wonder what holocausts Jews did against Germans before Hitler?How can we be put in the same cathegory with Germany?Also, most of the studies made by Armenians depends on oral sources, some are exaggerated and all of them ignore what they did against us while poor Armenia inhabitants are suffering in Armenia, now.In Armenia, almost everything they use are our products, they come to İstanbul to work with illegal ways.And why France is not wanted to genocide against Algerians, or Sweden against Samis, China against Uyghurs, USSR against Crimean Tatars etc.?Those are all systematic genocides even if the victims had no sin.Finally, we have never had problems with non muslims as a nation.I don't care what other muslim countries think about this matter.It is really too ridiculous to link this issue with religion; this is the indicator of the ignorance about Turkish society and Turkish state tradition.
