Don't you find your everlasting Turkish "innocence" rather too good to be true ? It's quite funny how you Turks stop one alleged "massacre" by slaughtering everything on your way ! Let me recall a few things. It is quite grotesque to see how the Turks while exterminating thousands of Bulgarians during the Bulgarian Horrors of 1875-1876 blame ... you guessed it ... the Bulgarians ! Again when they were perpetrating a genocide against 1,5 mln Armenians between 1915-1923 , they blamed whom ? ... Their victims , of course ! Adding insult to their crime they forget shortly afterwards the very existence of the victims of their sadistic fury ! Then enters Allah's worrior Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Pasha , who subsequently changes his mind on Allah and his Islamic mission , and does exterminate some 1 mln Greeks in Pontus and Ionia and it's again the victims butchered by his hordes that are the "culprits" ! He continues his policy of mass murder against the Assyrians and the Kurds and ... Yes ! It's the Assyrians and the Kurds - never the Turks ! - that are responsible for the Turkish barbarity ! How could it be otherwise ? In 1974 c. 40 000 Turks armed to the teeth with the latest NATO weapons by their American protectors , who incidentally had masterminded and blessed the Turkish robbery , invade Cyprus and burn, kill , rape and expell whomever they find on their way under the legendary Islam-inspired pretext of "self-defence" and eternal Moslem "innocence" ! And they call their traditional heinous Turkish barbarity accordingly "Kıbrıs Barış Harekâtı" "Cyprus peace Operation" !

In short, don't you think all of your self-proclaimed innocence doesn't hold water at all and is much too much even more the most naive mind ? In other words will you kindly name a single crime committed by the Turks and admitted in public by them ? Until you find any I do advise you not to press upon us the standard and impudent Turkish lies, forgeries and propaganda with which the whole world has been so fed up.

"go check the archives and at least the newspapers if you dont know. ..." It's interesting what sort of archives and newspapers you have checked ? As far a I know ALL critical literature about Turkey is censored, unavailable and criminalized in Ataturk's paradise ? Quite symptomatic , isn't it ? It seems that to work the Turkish lie must be not just be consistent and repeated by EVERY Turk but also must be strictly guarded with repressive laws against any casual doubt . If this is not the best sign of Turkish barbarism and backwardness , then what is ?
