If there is a single issue which transforms Turkish people into deniers of the obvious, it is the question of what happened to the Armenian people in the Ottoman empire in 1915 when hundreds of thousands were killed. The Swedish parliament and the US Congress both passed resolutions condemning the murders as an example of genocide. The prime minister of Turkey responded by threatening the 170,000 Armenians who currently reside in Turkey. About 100,000 of these individuals lack Turkish citizenship. For some reason, they are now responsible for what is voted in legislatures in America and Sweden. PM Erdogan made clear, “if necessary I will tell the 100,000, OK, time to go back to your country. Why? They are not citizens, I am not obliged to keep them in my country.”
OK, PM Erdogan, the children’s hour is now in session. Grow up and behave as the leader of Turkey. And, by the way, you are the prime minister of Turkey, it is not your country!
