    If the Turks are to lecture others on ethics and morality; then the first lesson is to not appear two faced. Lesson no. 1. Admit to the brutal mass murder of over a million Christians in Asia Minor (no, it is not the imagination of the rest of the world) Lesson no. 2. Admit to the expulsion and mass rape of over two hundred thousand Greeks in the late 1950s in "Istanbul"; all documented by Turkey's own Nobel Prize winner, Orhan Kemal. Lesson No.3. End the illegal occupation of Cyprus; where the Turkish presence is not even recognised by ANY of Turkey's Muslim brothers. Lesson no. 3. Give the 15 million plus Kurds their own state - since Turkey is such an advocate of a Palestinian state, it is only fair that the Kurds who have been living in "Eastern Turkey" for the last 3 thousand years have their own right to political self determination. Only and only then can the third world Turks be in a position to give advice to others.
