Like a Turk You wrote
>Armenians are best known in Turkey for the quality of their silver work
Oh let me see and I can paraphrase what you wrote and say
"Turks that arrive to our shores by the truck load are best known for the quality of their baklava and bide and their doner kebab."!! Falsafa wa hoqooq? No (Oh I forgot that you know no Arabic may be you can ask your Mullah to tell you what this means)
You also forgot to add "and the Armenians are also best known in Turkey for claiming that there was such thing as the Armenian genocide but it really never happened!
Shame on you for such comment that only dehumanize your victims. Shame....shame....shame
>on the other hand I can't remeber a single Armenian philosopher or jurist of note unlike the Greeks and Romans
Could it be because the Turks killed them during the Armenian genocide? Or could it be because you are too lazy to do a real search and find if there are indeed Armenian "philosophers and jurists" and i bet you there are?And would you agree with me that most Greeks and Romans were not the likes of Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, Virgil or Homer just to name a few and what is wrong with not being a philosopher or a jurist? And you know what? You ain't one either!
Now let me paraphrase your question: Could you name some Turks that were philosophers and jurists? Well I can name you a few that can make good baklava and doner kebab! A Turk who is a faylasoof or Qadi? No.
>Perhaps you could help out
Help you out to do what? To dehumanize others as you do? Shame on you
