Sultan, again.

Reader comment on item: Europe under Siege
in response to reader comment: my answer to all of you.

Dear Sultan,
Your silence is remarkable. Of course, you are under no obligation to reply to my question concerning your proposition that Turkey's response to the wounded world surrounding it (or to Turkey's very own wounded) has been superior to the USA's response to human suffering. You are under no obligation to provide proof for your statement. However Sultan, know that when you don't provide support to your extraordinary statement, your claim falls flat.

Then again, perhaps you are under the impression that you've answered my question to you in your "answer to all of you." which was, as per usual, a defense of Islam and denial of Turkey's role in the genocide of Armenians. If that's the case, I'm most certainly not under the same impression. Please back up your claim of superiority with facts about the most excellent response and contribution to the world at large that Turkey has performed. If your claim is true, this should not be difficult. There ought to be tons of evidence to draw upon.

You are allowed to practice free speech in this country, Sultan. You are not in Turkey now (or are you?) More and more I wonder if your selective silence and your mantras about misunderstood Muslims are employed out of fear for your personal safety (which, if I'm correct, could be endangered by other Muslims if you spoke more objectively and less defensively). If this is the case, we are much worse off than I've imagined.
Submitting....
