Turkish World Bulletin: Nothing in our history embarrasses us

The ruins of an Armenian church in Turkey. There is no shortage of such photos. The ruins looks about a century old.

The Turkish nation is comfortable because there is no point in Turkish history or in Ottoman history which would embarrass us, Turkish EU Minister and Chief Negotiator Volkan Bozkir has said in an interview on the channel Euronews Thursday.

“Historical incidents should not be used as political tools,” Bozkir said. “Politicians cannot make decisions about historical events.”

Last week, the European Parliament adopted a resolution recognizing the 1915 events as “genocide.” It came three days after Pope Francis also called the 1915 incidents a “genocide,” drawing sharp criticism from the Turkish government.

On Wednesday, Turkey summoned its ambassador in Vienna hours after the Austrian Parliament described the 1915 events as “genocide.”

“In the World War I years millions were killed. Maybe it should be analysed from a perspective starting in 1870 and going to the 1920s. Great pain was experienced. This is not only about our Armenian brothers. In this atmosphere Turks also suffered as well as the Kurds,” Bozkir said…

Muslims are un-embarrassable. They are the epitome of the “superiority complex.”

If you have any doubts, take a moment to read this piece on the Armenian genocide.

      Islam is sick death culture.

    Muslims will never admit any fault. Maybe it is something to do with shame vs guilt. They don’t seem to feel guilt no matter what they do. Even when they know they are guilty their main thing is to deny everything to keep up appearances.

    The whole culture is psychopathic.

    I found this about shame vs guilt cultures.

      The problem is that the majority don’t see it as wrong because their quran and muhammed condone it as part of the crusades for a Global caliphate run by sharia to make the whole earth one big islamic hell hole of poverty and child bride pedophilia.
      Since 9/11 , Canada has imported over 600,000 muslims that were never vetted for any support for terrorism and to make Canada an islamic state one day via Jihad.

      Kind of like, it was us vs them, so naturally we chose “us”. Any self-respecting group would.

      But it was a gross overreaction, given the threat the Armenians posed.

        The Armenians remembered the genocide of the 1870s under Sultan Abdul Hamid. Having no army to protect them from massacre in 1914, the Armenians called on foreign governments to protect them. The Russians did. That was used as proof the Armenians should be exterminated.
        The logic of Muslims is this: If you resist our genocide, you deserve extermination.

    “I refer to those AWFUL MASSACRES. They are the GREATEST STAIN that has ever disgraced our nation and race. They were entirely the work of Talat and Enver. I heard some days before they began that they were intended. I went to Istanbul and insisted on seeing Enver. I asked him if it was true that they intended to RECOMMENCE the MASSACRES which had been our SHAME AND DISGRACE under Abdul Hamid. The only reply I could get from him was: ‘It is decided. It is the program.’”

    Turkey: “Nothing in Our History Embarrasses Us”.

    One can accept that statement as true, surely.
