But Muslims have committed genocide for 1400 years, wiped out many cultures and civilizations far better than Islam, which Turkey’s great reformist leader Mustafa Kemal AtatÃ¼rk aptly described asÂ “this absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, is a rotting corpse which poisons our lives.” Today, the barbaric cult Â invented by a 7th century Â Arab slave trader threatens us again. Â Dumb, obnoxious and offensive statements like the one above by Turkish PM Tayyip Erdogan should help us to wake up and to treat Â all Â Islamists with the contempt they so richly deserve.
Today, we are reminded of Another Genocide by Islam:
Today the anniversary of the Thracian Genocide was remembered in a gathering across from the UN (video and pics here.) Never heard of it? Another genocide by Muslims scrubbed?
Like the Armenian Genocide, this too was committed by the Turks. It appears they have an appetite for such wickedness.
The Thracian Genocide was the systematic torture, massacre and ethnic cleansing of several millions Hellenes (Greeks) perpetrated by the TurksÂ throughout historic THRACE an area that includes Â Constantinople (now called Istanbul by the Turks), Eastern Thrace, and the islands of Imvros, Tenedos.
Another genocideÂ committed by the Turks. ..
The speakers we heard speaking were Armenian, Assyrian and Greek.
The event is supporting:
– Worldwide Affirmation of the Genocide of Hellenes (Greeks) perpetrated by Turkey and the Young Turk Party in Thrace, Anatolia, and Asia Minor.
– Recognition of the ongoing cultural genocide of Thracian Hellenes (Greeks).
Speakers included the President of the Hellenic Organization of University Graduates of America HOUGA, the Pan-Pontian Federation USA and CANADA President and officials, and members and officials of the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York.
This year’s memorial included unique scholars and a solemn recital of the orphic hymns for our dead.

Meanwhile, the plan to destroy all Greek property in the city was now fully under way. A hundred gangs of rioters were busy carrying out their terrible task, covering a vast area that stretched from the Bosphorus to the Sea of Marmara. Each gang had a leader who was armed with a list of the houses and shops in his area owned by Greeks. It was an organised tornado of violence which swept away everything in its path. Dozens of Greek citizens and clergymen were beaten up. Altogether 73 Greek churches were plundered or burned. Icons, murals and holy chalices of inestimable historic and archaeological value were destroyed. All the city’s 26 Greek schools were completely demolished. The Patriarchal School at Fanari, established in 1453, and the Theological School on Halki were subjected to the fury of the rabble in an act of extreme barbarism. The Zappeion High School was attacked and the statue of its benefactor, Constantinos Zappas, sent tumbling down the great marble staircase. The mob did not stop at ruining desks, a piano and the school hall but also did immense damage to the murals that decorated the interior walls of the school.
In all, 4,340 Greek shops and stores were looted and destroyed that night; 2,600 Greek homes were caught in the eye of the storm and submitted to the mob’s unprecedented wrath. The offices and printing presses of the city’s three big Greek newspapers were literally smashed to pieces. The offices of Olympic Airways, then known as T.A.E., on Cumhuriyet Street in Elmadag were visited twice by the rabble. ” Eyewitness testimony by Leonidas Koumakis survivor of the Constantinople Pogrom of September 6, 1955 as documented in his testimonial book.
