Dr. Pipes

One of the least known Genocides in the past 100-150 years is the one inflicted by the barbarian Turks on the Syrian/Assyrian population of Upper Mesopotamia in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and the total destruction including homes and churches of a very old civilization and people

How may were killed? The estimate ranges from 250000 up to 750000 and for those of you not familair with such crime here is a good reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assyrian_Genocide and the aim of such crime was clear: It was to eradicate the whole Syrian/Assyrian population in Upper Mesopotamia and it was called by the victims of such crime in Syriac ܣܝܦܐ or Sayfo which in Arabic is سيف or sword!

And this word sayfo speaks volumes about such not very well known crime against humanity

So much for the religion of peace
