Quotes

...In the first place, they are still treated as "minorities" under the law we imported from Europe 150 years ago. They are neither considered "autonomous dhimmi” (protected people) within the millet system of the Ottoman Empire nor are they allowed to enjoy the rights of "modern" minorities. Moreover, non-Muslims are the first to be used for provocation or for kindling a political crisis; their priests, writers or missionaries are easily slaughtered. The "ecumenical" title of the patriarch of the Greek Patriarchate in Fener, one of the world's two largest churches, is denied. The community properties can be readily confiscated via court orders. Halki Seminary on the island of Heybeliada near İstanbul is not allowed to provide education. The word "Armenian" is regarded as an insult. Calling a Turk an "Armenian" is one of the worst swearwords you can use. When Israel kills Palestinians, the Jews in Turkey are held responsible for the killings. Anti-Semitism is running amok. The case of Syriacs is the worst of the minority population. They are neither considered as a minority proper nor are treated as reputable citizens. The law concerning their rights to elect or be elected to the foundations they have established was annulled in 2012. Since then, they have been unable to elect executives to these foundations."
