What about other countries genocides?

Reader comment on item: A Critical Moment For Turkey
in response to reader comment: We shall Never Forget

Dear Michael Hanni Morcos,

I totally agree with you about mankind to learn lessons from previous mistakes. You want Turkey to accept this genocide, that's fair. But I wonder does any of those civilized countried mention about genocides that were executed in America, Algiers, India, Africa? Do I need to remind you that France killed many many people in Algiers just decades ago. Nearly all European countries slaughtered all Indians in America, now that culture is totally destroyed. What about French's further genocides in Africa, UK's in India, Australia and so forth?

As I said before I agree with you about learning lessons from past. But those lessons should not be limited to countries developing who can't say many things as French, UK or USA say. All those countries have histories written with blood but nobody says anything about that.

Besides all, I have read some comments containing very racist comments against Turks. All those comments dissapointed me very much not because I'm a Turk. One day I hope this world will get rid of that racism cancer. Until that day nobody should expect peace in the world even If Turkey accepts this Armenian genocide a hundred times as some of you want. Racist people like some we have here will always cause trouble to humankind.

Best Wishes

Taskin
