"And my favorite, hate and anger filled statement by you …. again verbatim: "You Turks are Moslem barbarians that have spread your vicious destructive ways of Islam through unprovoked terror and war against peaceful nations."

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING – No I am not talking about the power of word search, I am talking about the power of hatred and indoctrination. I hope you at least felt better after that. Like I said to you in the past, I wish I could help but even being highly educated with a respectable IQ, it is still beyond my expertise."

Now you have again a great chance to help ,Lazman, by explaining to me what is wrong about exposing and hating evil ?

To again expose this evil which do your best to you defend and hide or belittle I will quote an excerpt from a report of the European Commission of Human Rights adopted on July 10, 1976 prepared by 18 oustanding jurists and chaired by Professor J.E.S. Fawcett after a year's research into the consequences of the Turkish invasion .

The report states :

Mass rapes

Relevant Article of the European Convention on Human Rights: 'No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment... (Article 3).

Charge laid against Turkey: Turkish troops were responsible for wholesale and repeated rapes of women of all ages from 12 to 71, sometimes to such an extent that the victims suffered haemorrages or became mental wrecks. In some areas, enforced prostitution was practised, all women and girls of a village being collected and put into separate rooms in empty houses where they were raped repeatedly. In certain cases members of the same family were repeatedly raped, some of them in front of their own children. In other cases women were brutally raped in public. Rapes were on many occasions accompanied by brutalities such as violent biting of the victims causing severe wounding, banging their heads on the floor and wringing their throats almost to the point of suffocation. In some cases attempts at rape were followed by the stabbing or killing of the victims. Victims included pregnant and mentally retarded women.
Turkey's defence: No answer was given to these charges and Turkey boycotted the Commission's proceedings once her jurisdictional objection was rejected. Commission's verdict:
'The evidence shows that rapes were committed by Turkish soldiers and at least in two cases even by Turkish officers, and this not only in some isolated cases of indiscipline. It has not been shown that the Turkish authorities took adequate measures to prevent this happening or that they generally took any disciplinary measures following such incidents. The Commission therefore considers that the non-prevention of the said acts is imputable to Turkey under the Convention.
The Commission, by 12 votes against one, finds that the incidents of rape described in the above cases and regarded as established constitute Τinhuman treatmentΥ in the sense of Art. 3 of the Convention, which is imputable toTurkey (Report, paras. 373-4)
.

So here are the findings and the facts . To see more facts and findings on massive Turkish atrocities look at the other chapters of the report ss this original source it is much more worth reading and gives more knowledge than all your pastings from widkipedia supported by your pseudo-historical stories and Turkish myths. Now go and deny in your traditional Turkish duplicity the validity and truthfulness of the report and drivel on about "the power of hatred and indoctrination" and "hate and anger filled statements" while facing hard and verifiable facts and not the imaginary Turkish virtues of innocence and idealism . Here you can see the Turk in all his savage and evil barbarity - a sadist and a killer at work. Invent "Greek terrorists", blame the wretched victims for provoking Turkish sadism and spread more lies . It's what you are best at after all ,aren't you, beside denying reality !
