Ataturk vs Hitler- Dersim Massacre?

The Dersim Massacre took place in 1937 and 1938 in Dersim, now called Tunceli Province, in Turkey. It was the outcome of a Turkish military campaign against the alevis by local ethnic minority groups against Turkey's Resettlement Law of 1934. Thousands of Alevi Kurds died and many others were internally displaced due to the conflict.

The contemporary British estimate of the number of deaths was 40,000.

Why in the world we all alevis worship Ataturk as an alevi avatar(messiah)? Because the only minority group were Alevis in Turkey that really, really needs secular state revolution which would have been given us by minoirty intellectuals of Ottoman Empire.Though Modern Turkey were not totally secular and is not as well today.

Alevis worship him as if he was messiah.Yes, he was a half messiah and a half Hitler for Alevis.He and the other high leveled officers was not totally vegetarian.

Hitlers teacher was a messiah and the jihadist killer Ali in Alevite was just a mask figure for us too.Ali replaced Ataturk.I hope that Recep the Islamic Leader will not be next our avatar :)

We alevis need to restructure our real roots by helping all of you?!. Otherwise we continue loving and thinking our killers as messiah.
