Quoting �mitli

 

 

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.

Does that mean no?

It means "very little." I am asking people, but no one seems to know about this issue. They are not teaching it in my school either. Would you recommend any books? I began reading "Through Our Enemies Eyes."

awww they don`t teach you anything about that right? How about the Native American genocide you committed? Do you recognize that or they don`t teach you about that either?

Yes, they have taught us. There is much violent history to be learned, including between the Greeks and Turks. My great grandmother was a survivor from when her home in Greece was invaded. Please tell me, where should I go to learn about relations between America and the Middle East? I am young, naive, and do not want to be as ignorant as others. I want to know the truth, to understand.

Do you like this picture on the link? Those were Turkish children who got killed by the christian greeks in Cyprus. Did they teach you about it? Of course not.

 

Do you want to learn about the christian crusade against muslims? You can start by watching THE SEPTEMBER CLUES

I did not mean to upset or offend you or anyone else. I am just wanting to learn... I thought it would be safe to ask such questions...

So you kept asking me what you should read/watch and I suggested you a documentary. Will you watch it?

Yes, I will soon. I am not able to now (being with family) but appreciate that you are sharing it. Thank you for sharing your views, and again, I am sorry for upsetting you.
