1. Erdogan
Arn ,   Yehud, Israel   (11.20.12)
History, including Turkish history, will not remember Erdogan kindly. Turkey is a great and intelligent country with industrious hard working people. What a shame it has this paranoid and altogether neurotic monster representing it to the world.
2. Erdogan any comments on Cyprus?
Haim ,   TA   (11.20.12)
3. Sayeth the one who carries out ethnic cleansing of the Kurds
Larry ,   Or Yehuda   (11.20.12)
4. Erdogan know ethnic cleansing very well
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (11.20.12)
It was his ultra religious Sunni brothers who burned the Madimak Hotel in Sivas when the Alevi and Bektashi Muslims were gathered 11 years ago.
Tal ,   Tel Aviv   (11.20.12)
If Israel wanted to do ethnic cleansing there would be 1.7 million palestinians dead already... not just 100! For a leader of a large country, he sure is a total ignorant idiot. I'm glad he has shown his true colours as a bigot, anti-semite, extension of Iran. Yet another stupid dictator diverting his people away from their own problems of mis-leadership and corruption.
6. Erdogan
Jose ,   Seville,Spain   (11.20.12)
Have you heard of Northern Cyprus Mr Erdogan? Not recognised by the UN, Also the Kurds and Armenians who you massacre. Have you forgotten the thousands killed in Syria too now? The true ramblings of a deluded madman.
7. Ethnic cleansing is what you did to Armenians.
unlike your people Israelis let Palestinians live and work together with Jews.
8. 'ethnic cleansing'
joe ,   uk   (11.20.12)
"terrorist acts 'ethnic cleansing' massacre of children etc. when he uses these words about israel the man is ignorant this man is full of hate about israel and he will say anything nasty about israel
9. No1
You are right, Turkey should be a country reaching out to all with its huge potential but instead is tarnished with this despot. No different to Iran, such a rich and diverse Persian culture hijacked by totalitarian islamofascits. Really Turkey is one of the few countries that rival the true genocide of the Nazi era in what they did to the Armenians in 1915, Over 1 million killed Mr Erdogan by your fellow Turks.Some of the killing methods are too awful to describe.
10. No1
Jose ,   Seville,Spain   (11.20.12)
No 1, you are right. Turkey should be a major player in the world with its resources and potential but instead is ridiculed by this deluded despot ruling them. No different to Iran, with its rich,diverse Persian culture but instead hijacked by Islamofascists. The 1915 Turkish Genocide of Armenians is almost on level with the Nazi era, a mere 1.5 million massacred, some in a manner too awful to describe. Even today Turkey continues its brutality with many examples documented. Not many countries can compete with that Mr Erdogan.
11. Ethnic Cleansing?
Dee Bee ,   Israel   (11.20.12)
Isn't that what the Erdoganesian Turks are doing to the Kurds? Next he will be gassing them like Saddam Hussein! Abu Mazen (Abbas to some) said "No Jews in Palestine" and the main aim of Hamas, Jihad Islami and their supporters BOTH in ISRAEL and the West Bank is to destroy Israel and the Jewish people. Now in my book that is Ethnic Cleansing!
12. Normaly we accuse others of the crimes We do
Anna M Sedda ,   Rome-Italy   (11.20.12)

13. Erdogan
Alex ,   New York, US   (11.20.12)
Erdogan is talking about ethnic cleansing! Do words such as Armenians, Kurds and Greeks remind him of anything? What a sorry excuse for a president!
14. He learned well from his predecessor Goebbels
Alex   (11.20.12)
Reflect your own situation of ethnic cleansing of Kurds onto your enemy, and repeat the lies over and over... Just like Goebbels taught. This Islamist-Marxist alliance is getting too disqusting to listen at, they need to be dealt with the same way the Nazis were, they're a threat to western civilization.

18. Seriously???
Rahul ,   Chennai, India   (11.20.12)
Ethnic cleansing?? Seriously? Well, he must know better. His country men cleansed 1.5 million Armenians from Turkish territory and he still denies it saying Muslims wont do it. Great. The man is a crack .
19. The only ethnic cleansing with populatiobn growth
Ghilmeini ,   USA   (11.20.12)
Erdogan is scum. We need to talk more about Turkey's annihilation of the Armenians and their taking responsibility for a REAL ethnic cleansing.
20. Obsessive
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (11.20.12)
Anti depressants do not cure any illness. The root cause is AKP's rule. If thousands can gather in Gundogdu square of Izmir, Taksim in Istanbul, Anti Kabir iin Ankara in October 29 or November 10 why can't they organize to vote AKP out? Why do the so called 'White Turks' of Istanbul and Ankara prefer to go to Bodrum during elections rather than stay home and vote? Whey do the wealthy businessman who oppose the AKP lifestyle still support AKP in elections?
21. erdogan turkey dripping in blood
igbal   (11.20.12)
raycep people butchered 1 million armenians, and hundered of thousands of kurds. assad killed turks and this coward nothing but run to nato secretary general crying for help. What a gutless bastard! Turks, throw this guy out of office.
22. Turks know what real ethnic cleansing is.
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (11.20.12)
During the period between 1526-1686 the turkish occupiers killed the 60% of Hungary's population. Estimates are between 3-5 million people.After the liberation whole southern Hungary was virtually depopulated, and in the XVIII. century hundred of thousand settlers from Germany and slaves from today's Slovakia arrived to the empty lands. Please inform mr Erdogan about these facts.
Rafi ,   US   (11.20.12)

25. Considering..
Intedi Nensak ,   Stockholm, Sweden   (11.20.12)

26. There wasn't an Armenian that Erdogan couldn't cleanse!
Steven Wilson ,   Anchorage, Alaska   (11.20.12)
