Amen. The #ArmenianGenocide served, in part, as a blueprint for the #Holocaust. Mustapha Kemal was smart, but, he wasn't the hero that pro-Islamic-countries British types (like whichever @BBC writer put a fez on Doctor Who, and whoever decided to give a positive >>>
spin to the original Young Turks, in the first place) tried to paint him as. He wanted to be more Western because he was of the same school of thought, in many ways, as Hajj Amin Al-Husseini, who served as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem around the time of >>>
practical Zionism's birth. To Mustapha Kemal and his party/parties, exterminating the Armenian Christians was just as Progressive a project as was exterminating the Jews to the slightly-later Adolf Hitler and National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis).
