we know that it is imperialist american policy to create another puppet country in the middle east. is it possible to seperate eastern anatolia from turkey? difficult unlike in syria and liran, kurds and turks are very much mixed by merriages in turkey for 1000 years. only far eastern turkey is pure kurdish. pkk is getting only 6,5% of votes in turkey. this shows that 65-70% of kurds are not seperatists. on the other hand ı agree that some kind of dislike towards these pure kurds exists.
it is really funny to assume that anatolian kurds and jews are genetically related to each other. turks and kurds are almost the same people because of too much mixture and then jews must be turks relatives also. prime minister erdoğan is married to a kurdish woman for example.
you say that turks are individually good but collectively bad people. well, this depends on which politic side you look from. if you consider turks living in balkans and cacuesia sent to anatolia normal, because they never belong there, but greeks and armenians sent to out of anatolia is a genocide, because this was their lands , we turks disagree with you.
then you white imperialist chritian americans give indian lands back to them. indian culture is much better than your culture. we turks and indians are genetically close people to each other.. americans are genociders. not us.
also if you say america brought democracy to ırak we .strongly disagree with you. we think america destroyed ırak and millions of people died there and imperialists separated ıraq into three parts.
but ı agree with you about israel. they are not scared of turkey at all. they hijacked a turkish boat in international waters and murdered nine turks.and nothing happened to them.
this was a reason for war. if we have done this to israel, they would declare war against turkey. the reason why turkey couldnt do this was because israel wouldnt hesitate to use nuclear bombs against turkey, america would certainly support israel against turkey and economicly turkey is not strong enough to pay for war expences.iran must have nuclear bomb to stop terrorist israel.
but on the other hand if someday this pragmatic and intelligent government of turkey who is silently patiently but determined and sly enemy of israel now, be replaced with other political parties, ı guarantee you that there will be a very bloody war between these two countries.
ı cant predict the end of war. but turkey is not an arab country and it is not correct to assume that silently israel will get away with its murders against turks like they do to poor paslestein people all the time. probably there will be very long term struggle between these countries. thats why it is normal that cyprus and israel start to work together but this is a very dangerous game they play.
finally me and almost all turks dont individually hate americans and israelis although we hate their politics as a state, but you know why because tall people may not like their governments politics. how can you know. especially if they came to our country as turists or live here to work, why should we hate them. you see in egypt they attack to israeli embassy and burn it. we dont do things like that here. as a person who lived in turkey you realised that we act normal to americans but we hate their imperialism at the same time. just like you do towards turks and their state.
