> The tragedy of Muslims in Todays Greece at the hand of Greek barbarity is for me the most instructive and urgent lesson human history has ever provided. It is a warning and a message which only the corrupt, the blind or the fanatic can ignore. 2 million muslims were tortured and expelled from todays Greece in 1900s. Most of them died at the hand of Greeks... Furthermore more than 100,000 turks were killed in Crete during 1800s.<

Why are you so modest , you Turkish propaganda machine ? Why just 2 mln and not say 10 mln "tortured and expelled" ? Why 100 000 Turks "killed" in Crete and not 1 000 000 ? Add 20 mln Turks from the Balkans, 100 mln from the Caucasus ! Add some 2 mln Tatars from the Crimea , 5 mln Turkmen killed in Iraqi Kurdistan , a million Turks in Cyprus "exterminated" by Makarios ... What splendid statistics ! You can hide behind them any genocide , any crime against humanity you have perpetrated ! Now give us a single neutral source that bears out your Turkish magic maths !
