Hi, dhimmi no more !

Thanks a lot for your supportive comment. You've asked Lazman a straightforward question :

" do you agree [...] that 1M Greeks were killed by the Turks in Asia Minor? Just a yes or no answer would do"

I am sure he will never answer it. He can't admit the genocide whether out of fear of punishment when he's back in Ataturkistan ( admitting abroad the Armenian or Greek genocide may cost him 4 years in a Turkish jail if he is denounced) or out of collective Turkish narcissism and ignorance or because of both. At the same time he knows that when he denies the undeniable his insolent lie will backfire on him. I asked him also a direct "yes" or "no" question about a document. He has never mentioned he understood what he was asked to do. "Ignorance is bliss" seems particularly apt to describe the Turkish mind.
