At it again in Turkey: Turkish PM calls on non-Muslims to confront Islamophobia

Diyanet head Görmez (L), Patriarch Bartholomew (R) attends lunch with PM Davutoğlu (C) in Istanbul.

Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu has called on Turkey’s non-Muslim community leaders to raise their voice against Islamophobia and all forms of discrimination during a meeting in Istanbul on Jan. 2.

“When we raise our voice against Islamophobia altogether, then we do not only stand against discrimination against Muslims, but we raise our voice against discrimination against all religious identities,” said Davutoğlu before a lunch he had with religious leaders in Istanbul. Davutoğlu also condemned recent attacks on mosques in some European states…

...Davutoğlu said he hesitated to use the term “minority” as he did not regard any “tradition which lived in these lands” as a foreigner.

“We are all part of a big family and members of established traditions. These two weeks are meaningful as it contained significant days for these traditions,” said Davutoğlu referring to Mevlid Kandil, which was to be celebrated Jan. 2, as well as Christmas and Hannukah.

The prime minister also emphasized the importance of equal citizenship in Turkey, saying the state had never regarded any difference between its citizens…

    Turkey is just another islamist shit hole that will be destroyed in the coming war of freedom.

    In 1922, the Young Turks slaughtered all of the Armenians and most of the Greeks and deported the rest. The rallying cry was Turkey for Turks. There are still non muslims in Turkey?
    Just finished the book – Smyrna 1922 – by Marjorie Housepian.
    Highly recommended, you will learn a lot. For example, numerous Allied warships were in port and did nothing.
    As usual, it was all about OIL. (The crumbling ottoman empire controlled both Iran and Itaq at the time.)

    Ah, this guy is obviously on LSD. The ottomans tolerated non muslims as long as they gave up their sons to the army (janissaries) and paid the jizzya as well as all the other normal discriminations.

      There are almost zero non-Muslims in Turkey because they’ve been killed or driven out.

      I’m familiar with the story. Expel/kill your kuffar and then whine to Europe about “Islamophobia.”
