EUCHARISTO POLLI-MITCH-NA ZOISIS PALLIKARI !!!!On Turks and Truth – Part 1
Turks lied to themselves about Greeks bombing mosques on Cyprus. Turks lied to themselves about Greeks assassinating Turks on Cyprus. Turks lied to themselves about Greeks attacking Ataturk’s house in Salonica. Turks lied to themselves about Greeks then Armenians then Greeks again burning down Smyrna. All to justify their evil ends. Turks (many Turks, more and more every day) today know better.
“We just learned that our officers bombed mosques in Cyprus to 'raise resistance' against 'enemies without.' We now wonder whether they used similar techniques also against 'enemies within'?
Last week, Sabri Yirmibeşoğlu , a retired Turkish general, said something that shocked the nation. During an interview by Habertürk, a popular news channel, he said that the Turkish military had bombed mosques in Cyprus in the past and put the blame on the Greeks.“Such attacks and sabotages on sacred values are done and portrayed as if the enemy did them,” he explained.“The purpose is to raise the resistance of the people.””(Source; Hurriyet Daily News,“Why the Turkish Military Bombed Mosques in Cyprus”)
“A few weeks later, though, a local newspaper run by two Cypriot Turks, Ahmet Muzaffer Gürkan, 38, and Ayhan Hikmet, 35, wrote that the bombings had not been done by Greeks at all. And, lo and behold, these two men were both assassinated on that very same night, on April 23, 1962.(Perhaps we need another talkative ex-general to fully shed light on that part of the story.”(Source; Hurriyet et al)
“The bombing of two mosques in the Turkish part of Cyprus in 1962 might have been carried out by Turkish Armed Forces, revealed a retired general who inadvertently confessed to ordering the burning of a mosque as part of psychological warfare operations in 1974.”(Source: Today’s Zaman,“Turkey Remembers Mosque Bombings After General’s Confession”)
“I want the steps of friendship taken between Greece and Turkey to be long term and to improve much further. To achieve this, I think the common history of the two nations needs to be rewritten. I would like to make a call to everyone at this point. Come, let us rewrite the common history of Turkey and Greece by liberating it from the effects of nationalist nonsense. As a small supplement to this, I would like to point out an article written by Emre Aköz, a valuable writer in the Turkish press, in the Sabah daily’s April 8, 2010, edition. In the article below, Aköz tracks the real story behind the “Great fire of İzmir.” I am hopeful that these efforts will go beyond the limits of newspaper columns and evolve into writing an honest common history:
“Confessions of a Kemalist: Why were we burning down İzmir?
One of the books that best explains Atatürk is without a doubt ‘Çankaya’ by Falih Rıfkı Atay, who is a trueborn Kemalist.”(Source: Today’s Zaman,“Who Burned Down Izmir?”)
“….. an agent of the Turkish secret service threw a bomb into the house where Ataturk was born in the Greek city of Salonika.”(Pamuk, O, Istanbul et al)
Turks and truth have a long history of estrangement. Cyprus is but one victim of the Turks deceit and deception. In the end though, it is truth that will remain. And Turks (many Turks, more and more every day) today increasingly know better.
