    Its time for the Turks to quite Kurdistan. They should practice what they preach.

  • Interesting in that Turkey supported the Axis in WW2, don’t ya think? Yeah – they were officially neutral.. so was the US when we were supplying arms to Britain….

    Ya think Erdogan doesn’t know Turkey’s history….. or that he knows the West does not?

    Well, I wonder what the head Turk would call what they did to the Armenians.

      I believe the accepted description in Turkey these days is “a friendly spat”. Anything more gets you five to ten for “insulting Turkishness”.

    Erdogan accused Israel of committing a “systematic genocide” against the Palestinians.

    Well, the Turks do know their genocide.

    Israel is fighting against Hamas, right? Is that the Hamas whose Covenant quotes the Koran as follows: “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him”?

    By the way:

    ~100,000: Number of Arabs killed by Israel since 1948. A majority of them weren’t Palestinian Arabs, but rather Arabs from the armies of surrounding Arab states during their large-scale invasions of Israel.
    ~35,000: Number of Kurds killed by Turkey 1984-2008
    ~1,500,000: Armenian genocide misunderstanding.

      Following up:

      Number of Jews in Europe before the Holocaust: ~9 million
      After: ~3 million.

      Number of Palestinian Arabs in the “occupied territories” at the start of the Brutal Israeli Genocide in 1967: ~1 million
      Today: ~4.5 million (UN)

    Genocide?

    You Keep Using That Word, I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means

  • FriendlyGoat

    I forget who said if first, but this question applies to so many situations and people—now Erdogan too:

    “Are you trying to be offensive, or are you just stupid?”

  • Jacksonian_Libertarian

    I don’t here anything from Erdogan about the Sunni persecution of Christians in Mosul.

    These people trout out the “G” (genocide) word the way the libbies in the U.S. trot out the “R” (racist) word. After a while, nobody pays attention.
