Susan, I, like most of my fellows in university or other places, have nothing against armenians, christians or greeks. In fact we are a reasonably peaceful people and try to live along Ataturk's idea of "Peace at home, peace at world."

The murders you mentioned are terrible crimes which we condemn and shall punish as soon as possible. However, one cannot blame whole societies or religions only by judging actions of a few maniacs. Your knowledge about Ataturk's ideas seems corrupt and I advise you to come here and observe our people, you may be suprised at their hospitality.
