A leader of a prominent Turkish association in Sweden called for the death of Armenians.

Speaking at Sergels Square in the center of the Swedish capital, Barbaros Leylani said: “Let us show Sweden, Scandinavia and Europe what Turkey stands for. We do not like blood, but we can let the blood flow when it is needed,” after stating that Armenians are dogs.

Leylani apologized claiming his comments were misunderstood.

The head of the Armenian association in Sweden, Garlen Mansourian, told Radio Sweden that there needs to be “zero tolerance” for such remarks, while he also plans to report Leylani to the police.

The nationalist Young Turks movement killed over 1.5 million Armenians in a systematic genocide that Turkey denies.

Erdodog is suing a German comedian Jan Boehmermann for insulting all Turks and he called it a “crime against humanity” ????
But then they go and call all Armenians dogs which they’re allowed to do, because according to them they are above anyone and everyone…
I hope my post makes sence now ✌

Many of my relatives were killed by the Turks in 1915. We remember, but we do not call for the death of Turkish citizens today that were not even born in 1915 and had nothing to do with it.

Please correct your fundamental mistake regarding Ataturk and the Armenian genocide. Kemal Ataturk has nothing to do at all with the Armenian genocide in the dying Ottoman empire. Ataturk was in power only later, and in contrary stood for laicism.

I confirm : the slaughter of armenians (and christians too) was not made by Mustapha Kemal but by the triumvirat who ruled Turkey before him : Ismail Enver Pacha, Talaat Pacha and Djemal Pacha.

Enver decided to charge the batallion alone, riding his horse… Hagop Melkoumyan ordered to dispatch him, thus avenging the armenians of their worst genocider… Well, at least this a*****e didn’t died like… Read more »
