A Turkish Wannabe Caliph Goes Apeshit:

TheÂ Armenian genocideÂ was a fact, and the Turkish refusal to admit its existence is of a piece with the consistent Islamic supremacist tendency never, ever to admit wrongdoing, and to project their faults upon others. As a believer in the freedom of speech, I believe that the antidote to lies is truth, not censorship, and so I oppose France’s new law, but there is no doubt that its foundation is correct and its intention is good. And Erdogan’s reaction is the quintessential Islamic supremacist response to the truth about Islamic jihad: evasion, finger-pointing, projection, and claiming of victim status.
“Turks most tolerant, helpful and compassionate”
“Mr. Sarkozy cannot find genocide in the history of Turkey. Once he looks into Turkish history, he cannot find anything other than Turks’ tolerance, help and compassion,” ErdoÄŸan said.
“Turkey Accuses France of Genocide After Armenian Bill,” fromÂ Reuters, December 23 (thanks to JW):
ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan accused France of genocide in Algeria in the 1940s and 50s, in his latest response to a French parliament vote to make it a crime to deny that the mass killings of Armenians in Ottoman Turkey was genocide.Erdogan also said President Nicolas Sarkozy’s father might have direct knowledge about French “massacres” in Algeria.
We are toldÂ Muslims and Christians lived side by side peaceably for years under Islamic ruleÂ – namely Ottoman -Â but one troubling question remains –
>> Where are all the Christians??
- Turkey announces sanctions on France, recalls envoy over genocide bill
- GÃ¼l urges France to withdraw from Minsk Group if genocide bill enacted
Austrian MP Ewald Stadler adresses Turkish Ambassador
“In Algeria from 1945, an estimated 15 percent of the population was massacred by the French. This is a genocide,” Erdogan said on live television.
15 percent of the population? Ridiculous and unsupportable historically — unlike the Armenian genocide.
“If the French President Mr Sarkozy doesn’t know about this genocide he should go and ask his father, Paul Sarkozy.”His father served in the French Legion in Algeria in the 1940s. I am sure he would have lots to tell his son about the French massacres in Algeria,” the Turkish premier said.
Parliamentarians in France’s lower house of parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of a draft law outlawing genocide denial Thursday, which the Senate will debate next year.
If passed, the bill would make it illegal to deny the 1915 mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks amounted to genocide. The issue has causedÂ outrageÂ in Turkey, which argues killings took place on all sides during a fierce partisan conflict.
Erdogan condemned the bill shortly after the vote, recalled Ankara’s ambassador to France for consultations and cancelled all joint economic, political and military meetings. Friday, he vowed to take more steps….
“The vote in the French parliament has shown how dangerous racism, discrimination andÂ IslamophobiaÂ have become in France and Europe.”
Although nearly a century has passed since the killings in the middle of World War One, successive Turkish governments and the vast majority of Turks feel the charge of Armenian genocide is anÂ insultÂ to their nation.
Erdogan’s temper tantrums:
This is the pot calling the kettle black. The entire history of the Ottoman Empire is one of genocide waged against everyone they came upon, going right back to 1389 against the Serbs, the mass slaughter of Christians in Constantinople in 1453, Greeks in Athens in 1460, Hungarians after Mohacs in 1526, Greeks at Famagusta in 1570. Every time Turkish armies retreated, they left a trail of death and destruction. And there was the cruel Devshirme system, and more recently the slaughter of Greeks in the Greek War of Independence 1821-30, and the Armenian Genocides of the mid 19th – early 20th Centuries. The slaughter of Greeks at Smyrna in 1922 and far more recently on Cyprus in 1974. That is the history of Turkey. And us Brits must have been sick to prevent the Russians from destroying the Ottoman Empire in the 1820s.
Over 1,300 years – including 600+ years of the Ottoman Empire and what counts as ‘modern’ Turkey, far far more than the Bulgarians have been butchered. This is only the tip of a giant iceberg. Every part of Ottoman land where infidels were present faced this savagery, from the Ukraine to North Africa with too many to count murdered in cold blood. And they kidnapped, enslaved and murdered infidels in their homes and churches far away from Ottoman-controlled lands. Just imagine minding your own business in Iceland one day, then sold on the slave markets in North Africa two weeks or so later, which did happen when Barbary Pirates from the Ottoman Empire called.

Not one Muslim has ever admitted responsibility for Muselmanic atrocities or for his own actions ever, anywhere.
….according to an article by Der Spiegel, the Turks have been toying with the idea of reintroducing the dreaded Islamic jizya tax. Though the writer for Der Spiegel was clinging to everything Islamic ~ he did not understand the significance of the statement and presented the proposed tax as a solution to violence against Christians in that country. The argument was coming from the Turkish side ~ was that under the Ottoman Empire, Christians and Muslims lived side by side [peacefully] ~ for years with the Christians/non-Muslims paying the jizya tax. The best way to describe the jizya tax is like a Mafia tax, you have been living there since heavens knows when ~ and someone comes by and says you need to pay for protection ~ when you say ~ what for ~ next thing your window is broken. That is the Islamic tax, of which its collection ended during western colonization. For the native Christians in the region, today, to have to pay a tax for protection is ridiculous and outright criminal.
Recently theÂ German PresidentÂ ~ on a trip to Turkey told the Turks that the Christians there should have equal rights [to practise their religion]. This is a country that wants to enter Europe!
One of the reasons for the Armenian massacre, was because they started to ask for equal rights. So they killed them all. And to polish the Turkish denial off ~ Erdogan said, No Muslim can commit genocide.
These Muslims are dreaming ~ the idea is that one day they will rule the world ~ but people are attracted to places like America and Europe, on masse, because it offers freedom. Their idea is to trap people in their religion and in their ideology ~ and for the most part it is bankrupt. To prove it ~ that is why we have so many Muslim immigrants ~ literally fleeing its conditions.
Then once they get here ~ then we are supposed to make our countries like the ones they just left. If the Islamic system was so great ~ why did they leave?
They didn’t just leave: they were murdered!
