Turkish officials lack in Mathematics

Math skills lack of Turkish officials have widely become reason for fun lately.

The latest statements of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan cause already quite funny situations and expressions. I’d recall, he claimed he would deport the Armenians living in Turkey, and this was stated as a response to Armenian Genocide recognition by Sweden and putting the issue on agenda of USA, Spain and Bulgaria parliaments.
The number Erdogan used was 170 thousands (100 of which are staying illegally). The Armenian Observer wonders by Turkish Prime Math skills:the real number of Armenians staying illegally can not be more than 15,000.

Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has once again threatened to expel Armenians illegally working in his country. The big news is – now Erdogan has estimated the number of Armenians in Turkey to be 170,000 and has claimed, that 100,000 of them are illegals.

Another interesting statement by Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who claims Turkey had conflict with Serbs for 1300 years long, while today their relations are improved. Athanatoi wonders where “the conflict” started, if Turks started their movement from Altai mountains to the region only in 11th century. If considering Davutoglu logics, the conflict started between Altai Turkish tribes and Serbian Army in Altai. This statement is as far from historical reality, as for instance statement that Roman Empire army had conflict with Nazi Germany in 20th century.

Shadow of Armenian Genocide over Turkey

An update to the story posted today earlier “Turkey returns to its dark-ages policy when facing the Armenian Genocide“: Bulgarian parliament is to discuss the Armenian Genocide resolution too. Along with USA and Spain, Bulgaria is going to discuss on the issue too. Despite the huge economic influence of Turkey on this country, the MPs of Bulgaria have already done a huge step forward for genocide recognition and prevention process.

In the context of historical justice and world recognition of the Armenian Genocide, Turkey as well should definitely review its denial policy and accept what was done by the older generation. Otherwise the same shadow of the Armenian Genocide is going to follow the current inhabitants of Turkey troubling regional relations between neighbors yet for long.
