"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."

As I said already, university in turkey teaches pretty much nothing.

which reasonably peaceful people threatened the life of the pope just months ago? which reasonably peaceful people are threatening life of christians...after the murder of father santoro we sent some journalists in Trebzon and interviewed there a family of former muslims that converted to christianity.

The man very well explained such wonderful things such as they have to live in hiding, ordinary people pass by their homes throwing stones, harassing them day and night, he lost his job, his teenage daughter is called whore at best and those "peaceful" sort of stuff.

Do you really believe we are that stupid? that man had no reason to lie...

"However, one cannot blame whole societies or religions only by judging actions of a few maniacs. "

few maniacs? you call 70 million turks a few maniacs? the whole muslim population of Trebzon is a few maniacs?

You should go back to university and learn the difference from "few maniacs" to "mass psychosis".

Please tell me how many imams in the west have been murdered, after 9-11, after madrid and london bombings, please let me know the list. You murdered father santoro for NO reason ...

"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."

When hell will freeze I will waste my precious time and money in a muslim country. What should I notice in a muslim country? how you mistreat christians? how you cheer when a priest gets harassed? how your press makes up excuses on why priests should be killed?

Or how you cover up honor killing?....

My knowledge of ataturk is better than yours, yours is filled with idolatry and total ignorance of history since you cannot recognize a real dictator when you see one

...PS: what about the brilliant peaceful guy in turkey that went to shoot the italian embassy?

have you noticed some repercussions against turkey when YOUR FELLOW turk tried to assassinate the pope in rome?

... Why should I care about your "hospitality". You discharge any rights and any human rights to christian converts on your soil. And you talk about hospitality!
