Comment on Is Turkey the Role Model for the Arab World? by dario
Turkish leaders from far right to far left are fascists during the 1937-1938 Dersim Rebellion. In explaining the reason for the Kurdish rebellion to the British foreign secretary Anthony Eden said the following:
The government has tried to assimilate the Kurdish people for years, oppressing them, banning publications in Kurdish, persecuting those who speak Kurdish, forcibly deporting people from fertile parts of Kurdistan for uncultivated areas of Anatolia where many have perished. The prisons are full of non-combatants, intellectuals are shot, hanged or exiled to remote places. Three million Kurds, demand to live in freedom and peace in their own country.
Since then nothing seems to have changed. Turks remain barbarian.
