"This article contains such offensive phrases about the Republic of Turkey and Ataturk."
...it's about time you muslim primitives get over yourself and stop whining.
"Turkish Janissary Corps is a civil organization which is freely founded just like a communist organization can be founded too concerning the freedom of speech in Turkey. "
so recruiting christian boys for the janissary corp basically paying "blood money" to muslim is legal in turkey? what else is legal in turkey? slavery? pedophilia? I guess anything as long as it doesn't offend islam, and since brutality, barbarism are part of islam all the human abominations are permitted.
Freedom of speech in turkey? I just rolled on the floor laughing. Your penal code jails people for criticizing your country.
"Ataturk or any other member of the government has nothing to do with this organization and what did they think. So your first argument is falsified."
I never falsify anything, turkey is a barbaric state that should be confined to africa. It's full of fascist muslims with rampant illiteracy rate.
"Thus the author falls in contrasr with himself/ The government prevented fascism not supported it. Even the biggest fascist Nihal Atsiz and his mates were jailed for decades. Do you have a logical explanation for this?"
this is my very logical explanation ...When you have such a barbaric people like turks with 30% illiteracy rate, widespread ignorance and constant harassment of minorities you are not able to share right from wrong. Muslims are unable to do it.
You have no idea of what freedom is, democracy is, civilization is, therefore your value system is twisted.
"Ataturk's famous phrase What a happiness to say that I am Turkish is translated wrong. The correct translatıon is WHAT A PRIDE TO FEEL TO BE A TURK"
usual sentences used by dictators, hitler probably said "proud to be nazi", and your point is?
Besides, if your hero really said that, it's one more proof he's illiterate, the sentence is totally wrong, grammar wise and syntax wise.
"Thus, all this arguments are falsified easily because they are huge lies."
boo, hoo, cry to your mummy ataturk, those bad boys are telling lies, yet my country is full of animals still light years from civilization.
"As the last remark, everyone should think if there is still a double standard while at least 1/3 of the population of Turkey consists of Kurds. Turkey must have spent all of its time to deal with the minorities since we are talking about a 3rd world country whose economy is controlled by imperialist states. In contrast, all the revolutions were made in 15 years, how about that?"
we don't care about your kurds, they are muslims and it's your own problem to deal with them and their bombs, we care about the decent people in turkey which is the 1% jews and christians.
