When the turkish tribes lived in Central Asia under the influence of buddhism and shamanism ("shaman" comes from the buddhist word shraman = mendicant, wandering monch) they were actually quite peaceful. In the 9th century they became victims of islam - since then they are at the forefront of genocides, expeditions and conquests as the aggressors and plunderers.

What turkish children learn in their schools is pure turkish ethno-fascism. Not a whiff of self-criticism or honest presentation of history.

Islam is an imperialist totalitarian ideology and the arabs and the turks have made use of it with mutual profit. Islam profited from arab and turkish imperialisms and genocides (carried out upon non-arabs and non-turks) and conversely.

The turks in Anatolia are actually a mixed-race people - their features clearly reveal that they have many greek, armenian, slavic, illyrian (albanian), dalmetian etc. ancestors. Atatürk himself was a blue-eyed blondish man - a non-turk to be precise. Taking away non-turkish children and making them turks was practised by the turks in Anatolia and elsewhere. These "turkish" children must shout "ne mutlu türkim diyene" (=what luck that I may call myself a turk), a slogan introduced by Atatürk, before classes begin in the school (along with glorification of Atatürk).

Strange that turkish imperialism and ethno-fascism received help from Germans, bolsheviks and now even from USA and Israel. Strange are the ways of history. This also shows how foolish the non-muslims are.

The genocide carried out by turks in Anatolia has to be publicised and discussed.
