“With a total of 72 media personnel currently detained, of whom at least 42 journalists and four media assistants are being held in connection with their media work, Turkia is now the world’s biggest prison for journalists – a sad paradox for a country that portrays itself a regional democratic model,” Reporters Without Borders said in its annual roundup.

How about other Americans? They love muslims, right?

Very true in your sarcasm, elifce. It is sad that Americans tend to be so stereotypical. They think that "Muslim" automatically means "terrorist." Openmindedness is not a popular trait here, and the media takes advantage of that.

At least you admit the truth.

Back to your question, Turks think you Americans are bloody, barbaric invaders and genociders.

If I had not heard that before, I might think you were joking. Could you explain why, please? I am trying to learn more about relations between the West and Middle East, and am far behind. Where could I get such a history lesson?

Might it be because you love invading muslim countries and genociding muslims?

I am so sorry for this, for what my country has done. I do not support war, or violence of any kind. Although I love my country, I am also ashamed of it. My heart goes out to all people, whether they are Muslims or not.

Do you recognize the Muslim Genocide you committed?

I am beginning to learn, as this is something I do not want to be ignorant of. Please understand that not all Americans are evil of heart. I realize now how sensitive this subject is, and I apologize for bringing it up.
