Look here friend. You only think that Christianity has something to do with the Europeans preferring us. Religion has nothing to do with anything. Armenians Are Christians, but there are millions of Muslim Armenians living in Turkey, Armenia and Georgia. The Turkish Government oppresses them too. It is called Cultural Genocide. When a Muslim Kurd is not allowed to school his children in Kurdish, he is a victim of cultural Genocide. With the Armenians, if the Turkish government were to transport the Armenians on golden boats, and paid trebble for their properties, it still would have been Genocide. Please, read the Law on the definition of Genocide.

You say your neighbors don't like you. That is true. Your neighbors don't like the Turks, because they fear you. Perhaps that makes you feel pride. A thousand years ago, that would have been a source of pride. Today, that should be a source of shame.

Armenians like Turks. Outside of Turkey we get along very well. You never hear about Armenians and Turks having any problems. You should see Armenians and Turks fighting ove a board of Tavloo, sipping Turkish coffee, punctuated by shouts of "haide bahalam", "shesh, besh," etc. My family still speaks Turkish with a Kaisery accent. The food, the family values are the same. Let Turkey open its doors wide and let the fresh air in. The west has accepted the Turks and no one is seriously thinking about kicking the Turks out of Turkey.

This lat bit of information should give you reason to ponder. The latest DNA testing shows the Mongolian/Turkish genetic component in the Turkish genetic make up to be only 10%. So that means that 90% of your genetic makeup is Armenian, Greek, Slavic, Persian, etc. Your Turkishness needs reevaluating. There is not enough of it. You are now natives. If your people were to go back to the Turan, the people there would not accept you.

Christianity? Big deal. Considering the latest advances in science and astronomy, religion has become a childrens story. Armenians had other religions before Christianity. They were at one time Zoroastrians, before that we had a multi deity religion like the Romans and the Greeks, before that we were animists. After the fall of the hated Communist regime, I have to admit that I agree with them in one thing only." Religion is the Opium of the people."

So if you want to be liked by your neighbors, start liking them first for a change.

Good luck to you
