I doubt you care about encyclopedic knowledge or any knowledge in general.Why do I say this? Because that unlike you I quote an all-important,contemporary (1919 ) pro-Turkish source which contains nothing but official Imperial German diplomatic correspondence, cables, memoranda, letters , eyewitness reports etc. etc. You don't give any valid concrete neutral contemporary source at all. I understand you are in a dilemma where to take any from?

And note that giving numbers unconfirmed by any valid,objective contemporary source and building an interpretative castle on the quick sand of wishful thinking thriving in today's revisionist Turkish propganda brochures concocted and circulated by the Turkish Ministry of Propaganda and later re-published by Turkish and Western scholars on the Turkish payroll such as Justin Mc Carthy - an honorary doctor of Bogazici University and a board member of the Institute of Turkish Studies , and Bernard Lewis, a notorious revisionist with definite pro-Turkish agenda , brings you nowhere.Today's revisionists are no match for a 1919 collection of official German documents which call a spade a spade -" Ausrottungspolitik" - "a policy of genocide".

If anything your helpless escape from the source shows two things. First, that you have no idea what history is about and how legitimate inquiry into is done and 2/ that you refuse to learn anything new which is so typical and essential for any Moslem in general and any Moslem Turk in particular.Besides, let's not forget that a Moslem can under NO CIRCUMSTANCES admit he is wrong in a conflict with a kafir which is evidently the case here.
