Reader comment on item: Turkey: An Ally No More
in response to reader comment: Barbarians demand "humantarian approach" to them!

Emperor Alexios Comnenus in a letter written around 1080 (9 years after Manzikert) to Rober Count of Flanders writes :

" I wish to make known you prudence how the most sacred empire of the Greek Christians is being sorely distressed by [....] the Turks, who daily ravage it and unitermittently seize its territory; and there is promiscuous slaughter and indescribable killing and derision of the Christians. [...]."

Good Letter. A historical, valuable and unbiased evidence from the ruler of an Empire which has lost a major war only a decade ago, trying to create a 'missa contra turcas' and prepare the base for the 1st Crusade.

I am sure that the ambassadors the very same Commenus sent to Piacenza Council in 1095 continued to whine what 'those bad, bad Seljuk Turks' did to them, so that Pope Urban II called for a Crusade in Council of Clermont in very same year.

Meantime please also advise us what happened to Romanos Diogenes who lost Manzikert battle to Alp Arslan..

Anyhow , now lets put your following comment under the letter you have quoted

In short it is what the Turkish Moslem beast did and was after wherever he came - be in in Asia Minor, in Serbia or in Poland. Your phrase "we didn't change your language, religion or whatever" belongs to the most outrageous and impudent lies stemming from your barbaric ignorance and deep contempt for all the victims of the Turkish jihad.

It doesn't seem to be very different than the above one with the similar intend , but less political, less intelligent and more personal , don't you think ?

Meantime Ottoman Empire was a medieval one and this or that way , under supression or not , Christians existed in the empire. Can you show me a single medieval Christian Kingdom where Muslims , even Jews were allowed to exist ?

Visibly, you want us to forget that, but whover criticizes Turkishness in Turkey in public is jailed for up to 4 years. It's extremely progressive and 'useful' to generate the ubiquitous atmosphere of conformism and complacency Turkey is notorious for.

Sheer Paranoia or cheap propaganda . Which one exactly?

Could tell me a joke about Kemal the Circumcised Secularist or Allah the Pork-Eater? If you can then I can agree you ahve a rudimentary sense of humour. Otherwise, don't deceive me or anyone else with being funny while you're nothing but a failed clown!

Trying to see what lies behind ones zipper or what Allah has for lunch may not necessarly suit ones sense of humor. Meantime sterotypes like you usually add 'Drunkard Jew' when they are trying to insult Mustafa Kemal. You forgot to add 'drunkard' and most probably omitted 'Jew' on purpose due to presence of Jews in this website. So what does this makes you , a failed incompetent clown ?

Honesty is the best policy, Turk... I call it what it is.When I see a barbarian bastardized parasitic nation that spreads self-glorifying lies and is after more conquest and enslavement of others, I call what I see. Sacrifificing honesty to pleasing the barbarian Turk is nothing but policy suicide . Feel free to be furious about my not being suicidal...!

Then be honest.. When you are speaking about bloody mediveal empires or imperialism , speak in general without forgetting to omit others as well including western ones. Hating certain nations due to personal reasons and describing them with desperate and juvenile terms like 'bastardized , parasitic', and while doing this hiding behind the available global trends created just to suck middle east oil or boost proifts of Anglosaxon corporations may be considered as 'clowning around' by some people rather than an act of honesty.
