Backing down

Yielding takes a lot of character. See the world upside down! When I meet another car in an impasse on the road, I want to be the one who has the courtesy to back up. I'm ususally sorry when I insist that I'm right, and almost never sorry when I yield.

Aye, well I wish the world

Aye, well I wish the world thought like you. Unfortunately backing down isn't in the vocabulary of most world governments.

Turkey is not the same

Israel is not event backing down for the human aid. When the war matters, I think they're thirsty for that. And we now that they have some political characters who would like to use atomic bombing to solve Gazza problem. But I believe Turkish goverment and people will not give up, they're not like Arabian people, they're not going to calm down until Israel accepts their fault and asks for forgiven.

Israel doesn't have any

Israel doesn't have any chance against Turkey, but most probably USA will support Israel no matter they haven't solved their problems in Afghanistan and Iraq. This can also bring the end of USA either. I'm sure they'll prefer to use their nuclear weapons but it won't work as we have the control of nuclear missiles of NATO.

You should put your proofs on the table Mr. Ethan. Armenians in diaspora claim for a genocide that never happened since history can't be filled with their falsified documents but truths. By the way when some Armenians were forced to migration from these lands we were at 1st WW and some Armenian groups were fighting for Russians that's why they were forced for migration and before that they had killed many Ottoman citizens. If you analyze history correctly you'll also see that Greek army had invaded Ottoman lands and massacred lots of Ottoman citizens at that region, if you don't believe me visit the graves in these regions and try to find American General (or admiral) Bristol report who had came to the region to analyze the facts and decide to whom the land should belong after counting the population including the ones in graves (at first he made a statement that Izmir should be given to Greece at first count, but Turkish officials didn't accept this and offered him to make a count for causalities in the graves, then Bristol stated that the region should belong to Turks), so tell me who made the massacres? History doesn't have place for claims, so you should try to analyze it objectively rather than the wrong things you are imposed in your schools or Hollywood productions.

Genocides

Ok there is more than ample proof that these events occurred. Look I definately don't endorse Israel's current policy in any way. In relation to the Greek and Armenian Genocides(and Assyrian) by Turkey they definately happened. I don't have time today to look up all the sources etc but will start a new topic on this in the next few days when I get time.

I'm not sure of that Mr. Ethan but you are welcomed to share your sources. Ottoman archives are open to all historians and scientists (to analyze the signatures) since the signatures in Armenian falsified claimers doesn't match with the original documents.

Here you can have more information:

You are totally right. They know PR thing very well so have a good budget for it. But this time they crashed on rock. Today part of the genocide in Marmara ship was reflected by a volunteer to the media (it's unbelievable that how he succeeded to hide this record from Zionist army, in this video record it's shown that Zionist army has a hit list prepared before they attack to the civilian ship). Anyway there will be a big revenge and they won't stay with what they did this time.

Well, I hope there ISN'T big revenge.... there seems to be entirely too much revenge in that part of the world.

Well Mr. Smith, I hate war but Israel army deserves a punishment while we are in sorrow of the causalities whom they killed with a hit list (as the volunteers succeeded to show this list after some idiot Israeli soldiers dropped them in the ship).

Salahaddeen, it's not as

Salahaddeen, it's not as black and white as that. It's not a case of Iraeli=bad/Palestinian=good. There has been a large amount of arrogance and pig-headedness of both sides. Everyone needs to chill the fuck out and have a nice cup of tea.
