Jake Miller’s commentary of Sept. 4, “Turkey: The world’s crossroad,” paints a rosy picture of his trip to Turkey. However, he omits a few facts of history.

On Sept. 7, 1997, I attended the 75th anniversary of the destruction of the city of Smyrna in Washington, D.C. Armenians, Pontic Greeks and Assyrians were massacred at the hands of the young Turks under the command of Mustapha Kemal Ataturk, the father of modern-day Turkey.

In his book, “Passage to Ararat,” Michael Arlen writes that Turkish women were given the dagger (Hanjar) to give the final stab to dying Armenians to gain credit in the eyes of Allah as having killed a Christian.

During my trip to Istanbul (Constantinople), our young guide confided in me that she was not of Turkish ethnicity, but of Greek, but to get a job or an apartment, she had to take a Turkish name. At one time, there were about 250,000 Greek Orthodox Christians in Istanbul. Today, they number 1,000.

Not only has the Turkish government not apologized for the genocide of the Christians in Asia Minor, the Turkish government does not even acknowledge the horror it committed. Turkey became more Islamic when radical Islam scored a landslide victory at the polls during its last election. In the words of the prime minister of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, “There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. There is only Islam; that is it.”

We Armenians have waited nearly one hundred years for justice. If there is anything we have learned it’s that the West will make any excuse for Muslim violence, that Europe is too busy allying itself with Muslim interests to forcefully represent the Armenian case against the Turks, that the West will stab the Orthodox (Armenians, Serbs, and others) in the back for Muslim crumbs. Even though I hate and despise Islam and Muslims I felt sorry for Gaddafi who came clean with the West, made amends, promised not to support terror, and paid up, but the West still did him in (to put al Qaeda in power; what?). The West is now so crazy that its friends are deserting it.

I believe Obama is at least an Islam sympathizer, if not a Muslim terrorist of the new kind, not gun wielding, but operating just outside of American laws, protected by the MSM that shields him from the consequences a conservative president would have suffered a long time ago.

But if you view his action from the angle of what will promote the Muslim World Umma or Caliphate, then all of Obama’s actions make sense. Obama is practicing Taquiyya, the Islamic practice of deception, mandated in the Qur-an, when open aggression is not possible.

Remember he wrote in his book Dreams from my Father, “If things get ugly, I will side with Islam”. Well, he is siding with radical Islam.

Clearly Iran’s President Ahmadinejad is an Islamic radical, trying to provoke the coming of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi, through apocalyptic world events (destroying Israel with a nuclear bomb surely will qualify for that, he already said that any counter attack by Israel will destroy no more than 2/3rd of Iran). Hence no challenges to Iran’s regime during the student riots in Iran, especially no support to the protesters opposing his re-election, the continuation of Ahmadinejad’s dictatorship.

Contrast this with Egypt, where the old Mubarak regime, and the new one supposedly supported by the military, was clearly not guaranteed to be Islamic in nature. Here Obama’s call for inclusion of all civic organizations, of which he only called the Muslim Brotherhood by name. His handpicked “National Security Advisor” Clapper tried to describe the Muslim Brotherhood, an unindicted Co-Conspirator during the Holy Land Foundation Investigation, as a secular, civic minded organization.

The same holds true for Libya, where Quaddafi could not be relied on to modify his regime to an Islamic fundamentalist society, but the insurgents have known ties to the Taliban, so Obama calls for the ouster of Qaddafi and his sons, and the useful idiots, the EU and USA, are assisting their enemies and Al Quaeda assisted rebels to expand the Caliphate and assure their own demise.

So it is not Obama who is confused, it is Western Society, western governments and the MSM, who out of “humanitarian interests” are assisting their executioners in their own extermination.

We truly have become the useful idiots Khrushchev was bragging about we would be for communism.
