"As for what opportunities do Greeks and Italian provide their Muslim citizens?Let me ask you what do Turks provide THEIR Armenian Christian citizens(those who survived the genocide in 1920 that is)?"

My Answer --- As recently as this year , the current AKP government was allowing long-closed Armenian churches to open up in places like VAN amid plenty of opposition from otherwise secular nationalist parties like the MHP etc.

Now let me show you what certain enlightened governments in Europe have been doing towards Muslims. In Switzerland , minarets are banned. In France they recently banned Hijab. In Germany , Thilo Sarazin came out with a book with Islamophobic connotations. Similarly , in Netherlands the rise of Girt Wilders and others in poles as well as banning of ISlamic practises is also widely known.

What is most hypocritical is the decision by NATO countries who have been bombing Libya for last few months , to forcibly send back those refugees to a violent and stromy mediterranean sea causing the lose of plenty of innocent lives dear.
