Unfortunately, I cannot agree with you Ianus. Unlike what your supporters suggested, you failed to learn to look at history objectively. I want to say though not all Greeks, Armenians and Assyrians agree with you thank god. Remember Ianus opposing evil is not single handedly done, or bigotry should not fuel opposition of evil. I n your comments you showed many times on this site that you do not oppose evil but evil you claim casued by Turkish people.

According to your definition of evil (fueled mostly by your sentimental and emotional judgements not objective factual comments) Greeks, Armenians or Assyrians never commited evil they are the innocent victims who did not commit evil crimes against humanity. Sorry to disappoint you my friend, you do need to read history with an open mind. Yes, Turks did commit atrocities of many kinds but so did Greeks, Armenians who disguisd as French soldiers burned so many Ottoman villages and mosques etc. in19th century, this is in addition to ASALA's terrorist crimes against innocent civilians for the Pannationalist movement of creating greater Armenia in the world. This is the same 'EVIL' megalo idea of ENOSIS outlined clearly in The Akritas plan before the massacres and genocide of Turkish Cypriots in Cyprus started in 1958 and continued and increased in 1963. You do need to read history not just make sentimental comments I am afraid. Did you read The Akritas Plan? No one can claim to know about Cyprus problem without reading this 'EVIL' plan and claim to be opposing evil. Opposing evil is not one sided to fit in your own purposes of propaganda against one race such as Turks you need to educate yourself to recognise this that opposing evil is done for reasons beyond racial hatred, reasons that make us, you and I humans, reasons for providing objective safer world to future generations in our world. This is not done by one-sided bigotry. Evil is not owned by Turks only!!
