Very well said and it is a shame that those that represent our country in Turkey have no clue about the bloody history of Turkey and more shame that our government is unwilling to acknowledge that there was indeed an Armenian Genocide but the ultimate shame goes to those so called scholars here in the US that sold their souls to the Turks in exchange for money paid by the Turks to their universities and free airline tickets and luxury hotels paid and access to the Turkish archives and the pay back is to tell the world that there was no Armenian Genocide and that the Greeks are liars and the Assyrians? They never existed

As for the claim that Turkey will be the leader of the Muslim Middle East! This is far from the truth as the Arabs never forgotten what happened to their countries under Turkish imperialism and I remember one time having a chat with an Egyptian historian while visiting the Greco-Roman Museum in Alexandria the question of the Greeks legacy in Alexandria v. the Turks and their imperialism in Egypt came up and his answer was how can you compare Hellenism and barbarity!
