too long to answer

Reader comment on item: Turkey: An Ally No More
in response to reader comment: The new old world or Jews discussing "the so called holocaust" with Nazi historians

instead of answering one by one which is easy but can be too long, ı will give a general answer to you. No country on earth today or in the past is clean. We are only people.What race,what culture we belong, Muslim or atheist or buddist doesnt matter. We are deceived and diveded by some few people who has the money and power.We go into wars ,we die, we work all the time and they profit.They make us fight with each other and hate each other. So ı am not blindly going to defend everything about my culture or nationality. Some of the things you say are correct. But you are too much filled with anger and hatred against others.you see everything black and white. but it is not so. everything is complicated.For example When you criticize armenian tragedy done by turks, you have to do the same for french tragedy in all africa and algeria, when you blame all the turks in germany as criminals ,you need to realise that things are not as bad as before and there is an affort at least for better integration now. when you call islam an evil bedoin religon, do you mean that we 1,5 billion people on earth have no good cultural aspects ,that only others are perfect in everything.I think people must not blindly follow any ideology, we need to try to understand the other side also.ı am a devout muslim. but maybe we need to add more humanity to our personalities, instead of more nationalizm and more religousness.
