A scholar from a university in central Turkey has claimed well-disguised Ottoman Armenians attacked their own villages in 1915 to win independence from the crumbling Ottoman Empire.

    Why I moved from Turkey

    Oh pull the other one; everybody know it was the Jews what’s done it. Always is, always will be.

      Or maybe Stephen Harper’s grandfather.

  • Same old, same old.

    This isn’t the first time the Armenian genocide was denied.

    Now, with Obama’s help, it will not be the last.

    The Turks are becoming quite Arabic.
