September 6th and 7th... two days of remembrance for Greeks

Postby sophisticatedbeggar » Wed Sep 07, 2005 9:14 am

06/09/1955 and 07/09/1955... our brothers' houses and stores in Constantinople / Istanbul were destroyed because supposedly Greeks in Thessaloniki had set off a bomb at the turkish consulate (childhood residence of Kemal Ataturk).

It turned out the operation was organised by Turkey's secret services in order to put the blame on Greeks and start riots in "Poli"...

The plan was to orchestrate a greek exodus but without making it look like the turkish government was throwing out the Greeks from their homes...

Anyone knows if the turkish side has ever officially accepted its involvement in these shameful events?

Let me give you some clues:
1) The Armenian genocide never happened
2) The invasion of Cyprus was a peace operation.
3) The Kurds are not oppressed

Now, do you think that the Turkish government can ever admit such criminal actions?

Well, the logical answer is obviously no but I hope you realise that the reason I posted this topic is merely to remind about a very tragic event which is sadly almost forgotten even by Greeks... Ok, also I was hoping that perhaps this year some sort of mention and possibly a halfhearted "sorry" would be released by the turkish state but apparently this is not one of the criteria for Turkey's EU entrance so why bother??

I don't mean to be offensive, but does anyone care about Muslim being killed? After all, Muslims seem to enjoy sawing off the heads of those they deem to be Kaffir, and we all know Islam has a tremendous history of human rights, ps. do you believe Mohammed never did anything wrong in his entire life and was the pinnacle of human achievement?

Then it must be the most suitable thing to cut all muslim throats on the earth

I dont like to discuss with ppl who (i'm sure) even dont know the meaning of Kâfir and get all their knowledge about islam from websites such as http://www.prophetofdoom.net
if you have any other aims other than spreading hates around why do u post that kinda things?

ps: Hz.Muhammed (Sav) was prophet and slave of Allah(el-ilâh, el=the-ilâh=god) and just obeyed orders of Allah and probably every muslim would like to live in his era, Hope this is enough to answer your question, again i dont want to critize my religion with non-muslims

the story goes like... the Kemalists accused the communists for the riots and they arrested 60 communists. They set up some farse-trials (like usual) and several communists were prisoned.

In 1960 the junta condemned in death the turkish PM and President, while it gave the status of 'governor' to the guy who put the bombs in Kemal's house.

So the turkish authority-junta managed to get rid of Greeks, accused for once more the communists and executed the president calling him traitor (one of the accusations had to do with the 1955 pogrom).

Ofcourse it was very easy to find few hundred peasants in Constantinople since Asians will always be mobs and not civilized group of ppl.

akine...one question, what the hell the muslims were doing in morea?


were they economic immigrants or settlers? They knew that they were settlers and occupators and they knew their fate.

by the way.,..i ve never seen any american settler in Iraq...hm.. this makes the difference btw civilized world and islam. If turkey would have been invovled in Iraq i am sure that it would move 1000000 settlers that would make the Iraqi-turks and the turkish government would fight to defend their rights by making 'peace operations' like in Cyprus and Iraq
