This will never happen, but it is good to see someone piercing through the Islamic supremacist fog of denial and evasion of responsibility. “Zagib [sic] Zarakolu: Turkey must accept the historic truth,” by Karen Ghazaryan for Public Radio of Armenia, May 29 (thanks to Twostellas):
Turkish writer and publisher Ragib Zarakolu again criticized the Turkish policy of denial, as he received the Armenian Presidential Prize today.
“My generation knew what happened and tried to conceal it. However, the younger generation had to believe this lie under certain conditions, which is even worse. Koran says “˜Give up telling lies first and always speak the truth,– the Turkish publisher said. According to him, Turkey has gone blind and deaf.
“My country has turned into a cemetery of the dumb,” the Turkish intellectual stated. Zarakolu added that as the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide approaches, Turkey must come to understand that recognizing and apologizing fro it has become a precondition for establishment of democratic society in the country.
“Turkey must accept the historic truth. This is the only way for Turkey to restore the trust in itself. Recognition, apology and reimbursement — these will never bring back what has been lost,” he noted.
