Greece fighter jet CRASHES in dogfight with Turkish warplanes, as war between the two countries looks imminent
A new chapter in the well-scrubbed history of the Turkish jihad against the Greeks. The Greek genocide, including the Pontic genocide, was the systematic genocide of the Christian Ottoman Greek population from its historic homeland in Anatolia during World War I and its aftermath by the Turkish Muslims. Of course in this latest Turkish act of aggression, the Greeks will be blamed, despite the endless genocide by the Turks of the Greeks, Armenians, Assyrians etc. For the Turks, it has never ended. And they have never owned up to their barbarity.
Since the Greek genocide and the defeat of the Ottoman Islamic empire, the Turks have continued to taunt and menace Greece. Turkey has been conducting a low-grade war against Greece for decades; for years, Turkey has claimed Greek islands in the Aegean and menaced Greek planes and ships. Successive Turkish governments have made it clear that they do not really take seriously Greece’s independence, and want to erode and ultimately destroy the independent Greek state.
Now Erdogan has explicitly declared that he wants to reconquer the lands held by the Ottomans, which includes Greece; consequently, the Turkish military routinely harasses Greek planes and ships. Clearly, Erdogan is itching for a war with Greece — or more precisely, a jihad.
The Greek genocide, part of which is known as the Pontic genocide, was the systematic genocide of the Christian Ottoman Greek population from its historic homeland in Anatolia during World War I and its aftermath (1914–1922). It was instigated by the government of the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish national movement against the indigenous Greek population of the Empire and it included massacres, forced deportations involving death marches, summary expulsions, arbitrary execution, and the destruction of Eastern Orthodox cultural, historical, and religious monuments. According to various sources, several hundred thousand Ottoman Greeks died during this period. Most of the refugees and survivors fled to Greece (amounting to over a quarter of the prior population of Greece). Some, especially those in Eastern provinces, took refuge in the neighbouring Russian Empire.
Thus by the end of the 1919–1922 Greco-Turkish War, most of the Greeks of Asia Minor had either fled or had been killed. Those remaining were transferred to Greece under the terms of the later 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey, which formalized the exodus and barred the return of the refugees. Other ethnic groups were similarly attacked by the Ottoman Empire during this period, including Assyrians and Armenians, and some scholars and organizations have recognized these events as part of the same genocidal policy.
