in response to reader comment: religion

1) since is was based on politics, because some of them were against the rulers, then you cannot associate it with religion, turkey fight kurds and they kill them, both are muslims, so you cannot say that they are killing them because of religion, but because of politics

2) Since this was done in the early 20th century, after long period since mohammad, as I said before rulers went far off the original teachings of Islam, and they only look for their interests politically.

America wiped out the Red Indians, only few left. I can recall the saksons in north Europe and masscares made by many Europeans countries in North Africa and Middle East in General.

Why pick on Islam when your house is made of Glass.
