"Again "Ne mutlu türküm diyene" ?"
This slogan was raised against a insulting propaganda.a kind of self defence.
"In other words you refuse to distance yourself from your forefathers' crimes" The propaganda continues.
"Rather an ethnographic zoo , I'd say, to attract the mass tourist and get some political and propaganda advantages from" An easy way to reject any kind of positive approach.
"So many Turkish families have "Mein Kampf" ("Kavgam") in their homes"
I have visited many turkish homes in my life.I asked neigborhoods.Interesting! i didn see that boring book.
"an indubitable best seller in Turkey after all." This is also a propaganda.This is socially imposibble.There is no sympaty of that book here.Ianus you believe you are right.But let me tell you.Main Kamf is almost "nothing" here.
"Why do you think I don't know the official hagiographic Turkish tale " Interesting.whatever positive is a tale.Historical documents are all tale.interesting.
