For our dear Omer, and speaking of being at a loss for words

Like a good Turk you wrote
>Nothing excites a Turk more than sucess
I thought that committing genocides and then denying them or blaming the victims and getting away with such crimes is more exciting to a Turk! Shame. But wait: so invading the lands of others, raping, enslaving, murder and kidnapping of Christian boys does not excite a Turk anymore? Just amazing
>this is the main reason we became Muslims in the first place
Bogus. The Turks became Muslims because they wanted to join other Arabs and wannabe Arabs in looting and invading the lands of the infidles and abducting the boys of the infidles and converting them to islam and sending them back as fighting machines to brutalize their own people (the crime of the janissaries and the Stockholm syndrome before there was even one). And in this case the looting will be in the name of an Arabian deity Allah that is who will get 1/5 of the loot (Q:41). Could this be the reason?
>and our legacy derives equally from the Greeks Romans and French
Missing are the Armenians! Well I guess they do not count. Well, I guess like a good Turk you will tell us that the Armenian genocide never happened and give us some gobbledygook explanation of why there was no such thing as the Armenian genocide. No thank you and spare us this one.
But more strange is that most "Turks" are the decendants of non-Turks be it Greeks or Armenians (gasp!) and I would bet you a buck that the chances are you ain't no Turk (the decendant of those barbarians that came from central Asia) and that your ancestors are more likely than not Greeks or Armenians (gasp again!) so why is that self hate? but I suppose old civilizations are not conjured away not by the Turks and not by islam or Arabism.
>as it does from the Arabs Persians or Chinese
But our dear Omer, the Qur'an really says that Islam is the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only (Q14:4) and you ain't no Arab. Only a wannabe Arab. And you know what? During the occupation of the Middle East by the Turks no Arab had any like for the Turks. Even being Muslims and wannabe Arabs the Turks were regarded as aliens. See what happens when you detach yourself from your past? And do you know what is most painful for the Turks is that even after some 700 years they still do not feel very secure in the lands of the old Byzantine empire and they all seem to be moving by the truck load to the lands of the infidles and why is that our dear Omer?.
>and europe is infinitely preferable to the Middle East
And why is that? You mean no more caliphate? Or could it be that you have realized that you have nothing in common with the Arabs...or is it self hate again?
But if Turkey is to join the EU the ultimate punishment to the Turks will be the Greeks and Armenians coming back to the land of their ancestors and reclaiming what was taken away from them.
