Nailed down

This is the first time in my whole life that I feel completely numb.
Nailed down by some Turkish nationalists, I only can cry. The hate and nasty remarks by them, shows that some parts of the Turkish society (a minority but a powerful one) attacks those who don't have an opinion like them.
Raised up in a family culture, where respect for other religions means: practice the words but also the deeds.
Raised up in a country where respect for other race still is in our constitution and our hearts, it's sad to say that some people in Turkey think otherwise: Read the comments here.

Hans,
I would rather you not make a generalization regarding nationalists. The opinions of a couple aren't always the opinion of the many. Some of us manage to make a point without attacking or vilifying others.
That said, you're old enough to build a bridge and not listen to a couple of die hards ;)

hugs

Ignoring is the best solution...
