Reader comment on item: A Critical Moment For Turkey
in response to reader comment: ataturk started fascism in turkey

Submitted by Kemal (Turkey), Jun 20, 2007 at 09:22

This article contains such offensive phrases about the Republic of Turkey and Ataturk. Turkish Janissary Corps is a civil organization which is freely founded just like a communist organization can be founded too concerning the freedom of speech in Turkey. Ataturk or any other member of the government has nothing to do with this organization and what did they think. So your first argument is falsified.

Secondly, there was not any assimilation process in the h'story of the country. All thats made was preventing segretative and fascist groups to from within themselves. Thus the author falls in contrasr with himself/ The government prevented fascism not supported it. Even the biggest fascist Nihal Atsiz and his mates were jailed for decades. Do you have a logical explanation for this?

Ataturk's famous phrase What a happiness to say that I am Turkish is translated wrong. The correct translatıon is WHAT A PRIDE TO FEEL TO BE A TURK. this again falsifies the fascist claims and verifies that Ataturk had the merging mentality.

Thus, all this arguments are falsified easily because they are huge lies.

As the last remark, everyone should think if there is still a double standard while at least 1/3 of the population of Turkey consists of Kurds. Turkey must have spent all of its time to deal with the minorities since we are talking about a 3rd world country whose economy is controlled by imperialist states. In contrast, all the revolutions were made in 15 years, how about that?
