Erdogan Fumes at West, Russia for Recognizing Armenian Genocide

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

ANKARA (ArmRadio)—Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has slammed world leaders for recognizing the 1915 massacre of Armenians as genocide. The Turkish leader said countries like Germany, France and Russia should first “clean their own stains,” Deutsche Welle reports.

Erdogan lashed out at the European Union and the US for using the word “genocide” to describe the massacre of Armenians by Ottoman Turks a century ago.

The Turkish president accused Germany, France and Russia of “supporting claims based on Armenian lies.”

Erdogan also accused the United States of siding with Armenia despite the fact that US President Barack Obama stopped short of calling the killings genocide and instead used the Armenian term Medz Yeghern (great catastrophe) for the genocide.

“The last countries to speak of genocide are Germany, Russia and France. What happened during the two World Wars that had been initiated by Germany in the past century is before our eyes,” President Erdogan was quoted by Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency as saying on Saturday.

“First, they (Germany, Russia and France) must, one by one, clean the stains on their own histories,” he added.

The US is siding with “hatred,” the president said, also slamming the European Union, which on April 15 voted to call the events genocide.

“Hey European Union. Don’t offer us any thoughts. Keep them to yourself,” Erdogan said.

    Germany has come to terms with its past. France never committed genocide, however, it has made mends with former colonies. Russia has denounced it communist past long ago. Turkey, on the other hand, has yet to admit any wrong doing. It continues to deny and by extension continues the Genocide.

    Turkey is on the run and will continue to run until it is hunted down like a rabid dog.

    Hey Mr. Gyottep Erdogan,

    Are you actually bringing up WW 1 in your tirade against Germany? Hey imbecile, Turkey was Germany’s primary ally during the war, or were Turks not part if that either just like they were not responsible for the Armenian Genocide, right?

    Someone get this man this Allzheimer’s pills, next thing you he will claim the moon landing was an elaborate acid trip of the 1960’s. When is he going to have a stroke and drool from the side of his mouth so we can stop hearing his garbage. I suggest you grow a pair like Austria did and admit to your past crimes Gyottep, oh wait you Turks only act like men when assaulting helpless women and children during your historic Genocidal ethnic cleansings.

    People of honor call what happened by it’s name GENOCIDE, it’s not killed, died, massacred, it’s GENOCIDE. Erdogan can’t accept it because of his Biiiiiiiiig ego. His Biiiiig ego and ignorance is killing him.
