Our dear Kaan whose ancestors the Greeks and the Armenians and the Syrians were brutalized by the invading Turks that came from central Asia and they are for sure free to go back to central Asia and good riddance

>you reply to my comment about injustices with minority groups in e.g. Greece:

Oh Turkisk propagandist who worries about minority rights! Sobhanallah

Our dear Kaan you see charity starts at home so how about the rights of the Armenians and the Greeks and the Syrians in Turkey? Oh let me guess: There really was no Armenian Genocide and the Greeks deserve what happened to them and the Syrians? As per our dear Turk who was another poster and a Turkish propagandist do not exist!

This is what inaus wrote

>>"If all you can produce by comparison is a mosque in Athens denied to Moslem ..."

And this is our dear kaan's answer

>Why are you so obsessed with religion? We are in 21st century!

Let me see you have nothing to say right?

>No enlightment in Poland?

So ianus is from Poland but what does this have to do with what he is telling you>

> I have never talked about a mosque in Athens, and I do not care about a mosque in Athens. I do not even know, if there are any Muslims or not.

Oh you think we should tell the Turkish ministry of misinformation that you our dear Kaan not just believe that 1M Armenians were killed in cold blood during the Armenian Genocide but you do not care about Muslims in Athens? I can assure you you will lose your little job posting drivel and it would serve you right

>Read about legal hurdles in Greece to open up a radio station in a foreign language (by the way, against EU laws). That is one example.

Hello: with the internet who needs to open local radio stations as a matter of fact let us take the case of Father Zakaria Botros whose program about Islam is all done here in the US and millions of your masters the Arabs watch him on satellite TV stations so your claim is bogus

And a Turk who is worried about EU law! Oh spare me this one

> I am not comparing murders on ethnic groups by Turks or murders and rapes by Greek army during the Greek invasion towards Ankara after WW I, it is just an example about a lack of an open society in Western Europe.

Lack "Open society" in Western Europe? Are you for real? it is Turkey that has no "open society" let me give you an exmaple; Can you our dear kaan the propagandist stand in the middle of occupied Constantinople and say: There really was an Armenian genocide! Any guesses about what would happen to you? Oh let me guess you will lose your little job posting drivel on the internet right? ...

>"...contrasted to the government-sponsored campaign to terrorize, ruin and destroy the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constaninople , one of the oldest Christian instituion in this world !"Ianus, the town is still called Istanbul

No it is occupied Constantinople and get used to it

>and I have not heart about a destruction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Please do not send me any conspirative information, even you should know, that a destruction will never happen.

Hypocrite and shame on you
