First of all about So-called Armenian Genocide;I dont know whether we kill them or not. But I do know is that 8 of my ancestors killed in WW1 5 of them died at Galypolli to Protect our Freedom and other 3 of killed their home town by the Armenian gangs. Everybody in Turkey who have ancestry at north-Easth of Turkey can tell similar stories.

Turkey is a Secular Country which we accepted our human right records and last 5 years or so. Until mid 2000s even though it is illegal in Turkey Turkish Police and Army tortured Peoples. But since then It is almost finished but Their law issue are still continue.

On the Other Hand Turkey "totally respects the right of Jewish Israel to exist" as you put it. And Recognize Israel. But Also Demand from Israel that keep their part of bargain which they accepted 1947 when they conditionally become UN member. What Turkey want is those Two condition nothing more nothing less.

Also Apart from everything What you called "Teaching of Every mosque" is not against most of your Values. But The Difference only in cultural. In some Countries You can fart or burp freely but In some Counrties People make deal out of it. What I am saying is that Your Western Values for You not For the Others.You have no right to impose anything to Any country Imposing Culture one way or another is no different from what Nazi tried to do by Military Force.
