Turkish history-writing

Reader comment on item: Who Lost Turkey?

Submitted by G.Vishvas (Germany), Jun 11, 2010 at 08:33

The turks have an ethno-fascist-imperialist past and the turkish children (many of whom actually are descendants of non-turks, who were turkized) are taught to be proud of this past and rejuvenate it. Muslims have an imperialist ideology, money and demographic strength and Turkey knows that it must make recourse to this resource for restarting its imperialism. So it all depends upon who writes history for whom. Turkish history-writing was and is, even at the time of their Ata (father) turk, thoroughly ethno-fascistic. Ethno-fascism is impossible to defeat - it leads to sociopolitical catastrophes and destroys itself and rises again on the basis of a narrative of victimhood-complex and superiority-complex. This is going on all over the world since thousands of years. The turks are especially seedy and insidious in this matter of ethno-fascism, islam, racism and history-writing. The USA has blundered since 60 years due to its dollar-greed and rabid anti-communism and ended up strengthening the islamo-fascists in the process. The turks were big winners due to this US idiocy of rabid anit-communism.
