Our dear Ali Karp wrote

David writes: "The Turkey of today has also also not been able to own up to the genocides it perpetrated against Indigenous Christians in the 20th century (Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks)."

Then he writes

David conveniently leaves out the role of the ruling powers in sowing enmity among the ethnic constituents of the Ottoman empire to facilitate the dismantling of the empire, and the willing collaboration of some of these ethnic groups.

So would this justify killing 1.5M Armenians and 2M Greeks and about 750,000 Syrians by the barbaric Turks? and how do you justify the killing of Armenian, Greek and Syrian babies and old people and women and by your very flawed logic were the Armenian babies, and to paraphrase what you wrote, : Armenian babies were killed in the Armenian Genocide because they were trying to dismantle the Ottoman Empire! Do you see why your claims are ridiculous?

Then he writes this not even funny remark

I suggest new prescription glasses to alleviate myopia.

No the one that cannot see beyond the end of his nose is you

Shame on anyone who denies or justify the crimes of the Turks against their minorities
