Bad news for Turkishness rather! The sultan's ugly and decaying body has been spotted undecorated with the fashionable garments of Turkishness... Be candid! The Turks believe firmly that if anyone only their victims - Greeks and Armenians can know anything about the heinous crimes committed by the Turks. They are reassured others are so ignorant on those matters as alas it is the case! So when one day it turns out that others also do know the truth, the poor Turk presumes instinctively the "detractors" must be Greek or Armenian as in my case.

"My point about his posts being full of hatred and almost comical curse phrases ("Turk!", "Barbarian Turk!" ) still stands though."

Your point, Turk? What is your point beside "Turkishness is so sweet and so good"? You have no valid point to make! Just fairy tales and no courage to admit the unflattering truth! Instaed you have much cheek to re-tell us the old straight lies (like your sickening denial of the Greek genocide the Turks did perpetrate under the eyes of the entire world) most of us are so fed up with - the denials of everything bad about Turkishness and boasting of how good you Turks are - particularly now as long Kemalist fascism is triumphant in Turkey!
