Turkey never acknowledged the genocide it perpetrated on many Christian communities, predominantly Armenian, just over a century ago. Just imagine present-day Germany if it would deny the Holocaust. How scary would they be?! That’s how terrifying Turkey is today. They’ve done it before. They don’t acknowledge it, let alone regret it.
For people who’d say “No, such a thing is impossible now,” I want to remind them that the Holocaust was also unimaginable but executed anyway. By the most developed nation at the time, the center of science and counter-culture–something you can’t say about Turkey.
When some of his leaders told Hitler that genocide on the Jews was not possible and would lead to a worldwide protest, he said: Who now remembers the Armenian Genocide?
And the Armenians were not slaughtered by anonymous invisible killers like by gas chamber, carpet bombing, or a nuclear bomb. They were murdered one-by-one, soldiers against civilians, from babies to the elderly, women and men, poor and rich, slaughtered by bullet or ballonet.
Just imagine how scary it would be if Nazi-Germany could have ‘helped solve’ a border disputed between the Jewish State and its neighbors.
Stop Turkey from finishing the job. The news is they’re about to try.
Turkey is no longer a democracy with opposition or freedom of the press.
Don’t get distracted or misled by who fights whom there. Turkey is accused of sending Syrian mercenaries to do the work for them.
The NATO must tell member Turkey that if it harms one Armenian, directly or indirectly, NATO troops will invade Turkey and capture its leadership for facing a tribune for war crimes and crimes against humanity. (The US has a clown for president who likes the Turkish dictator, so count them out.)
Stop Turkey. Everyone is responsible for speaking up. Bloggers in blog posts, politicians in politics, journalists in the media, citizens on social media going viral, voters contacting their political representatives, scientists and other influencers taking clear positions, etc. Silence is complicity. Just like I don’t shut up, neither need you or your friends.
