Our dear Lazman whose ancestors were Greek and Armenians and Syrians and were brutalized by the Turkish barbarians that came from Asia and destroyed the Byzantine Empire. Those Turkish barbarians not only brutalized his ancestors but they also detached his likes from his linguistic and religious past and he is no longer a Greek or Armenian or Syriac speaker as he speaks the language of the Turks and to add insult to injury he is now a follower of the religion of the Arabs only and he is here defending the beast that brutalized his own ancestors but I guess the victim is the last one to know that he is really a victim

How many times do i have to write that?

This is what Ianus:

>Ataturk had c. 1 000 000 Greeks murdered in Asia Minor but no Turk remembers having burnt alive Greeks or decapitated and slaughtering them in Smyrna…

Very true! and I would like to add that in the early 1920's around 2M Greeks were expelled from Asia Minor their home from time immemorial and I guess in the strange world of our dear lazman this did not happen or the Greeks asked for it or the Greeks are liars and non of this is for real but you know what? We do not buy Turkish BS

For those of you that are familiar with modern history of Egypt there was a very large Greek community in Alexnandria and Cairo and many of them were refugees from Asia Minor and the atrocities of the Turks

And this is our dear lazman's answer

> But I forget, in "Ianus' world," blaming past or present powers liberates you out of any circumstances.

For the readers: What does this have to do with what ianus wrote? Nothing not a thing so do you agree with him that 1M Greeks were killed by the Turks in Asia Minor? Just a yes or no answer would do

But again if Turks tell us that there really was no Armenian Genocide then why should I except that your answer will be yes 1M Greeks were killed in cold blood by the Turks

And Like i say: I hope that Trukey will join the EU and I can see the Greeks and the Armenians and the Syrians taking the Turks to the highest courts in the EU to get back what they have lost and people like you can head back to central asia
