The Biggest Lie Ever — How do you think about my poem?

Question by Eurasian: The Biggest Lie Ever — How do you think about my poem?
It snows and dark in the night,
Too cold and there is no even a light,
Everybody must learn this to sleep tight.
The biggest lie ever is Armenian Genocide.

They want people to believe their lie,
They only say, “you are killer and you must die”
The Turks theirself dont hurt even a fly,
The people who believe this lie going to feel shy.

Are they really bunch of victim?
Or maybe they are only a good team.
The world saw many kind of film,
The God whom we belive in,
says: the lie is the biggest sin.

Why do some people assume only white people practiced slavery, and only non-whites were ever enslaved?

Question by darkryder13: Why do some people assume only white people practiced slavery, and only non-whites were ever enslaved?
My ancestors are from the Balkans, and Caucasian. They were slaves for more than 500 years to the Ottoman Turks. Why do some people only seem to think the West practiced slavery when it existed everywhere? This is not to defend the Western powers’ slavery, not by a long shot, as they exploited the Balkans and Mediterranian as well. I was just a little shocked to come to the US and immediately be considered part of the “oppressive white majority” when where I come from we were the slaves. So how should I deal with the few angry, vocal people who seem to think I owe them something for slavery in the United States? Should I tell them they then owe me for my ancestors slavery in the Balkans?
I should probably clarify a bit. The people I am dealing with are in a college environment, and for the most part are white, not black. I chalk most of it up to ignorance, but it’s a little frustrating to put up with.

How do you explain this dillema: Armenians claim to be the first christians ever?

Question by genç türk: How do you explain this dillema: Armenians claim to be the first christians ever?
and of course, rightfully, they are proud of it.

Yet most of them (MOSTLY THE ONES IN DIASPORA) apparently never listen to their prophets:

“Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you (Luke 6:27-28)”

Also see what the man hated by you is saying about his bloody murdering enemies.

Most Turks never hate, for they never fear.

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.

-Yoda
Vahe, mostly the girls in diaspora hate us to death. I agree that once the purity of religions are stained for political control, the end result is not very bright. Look at Europe in middle ages and middle east today.
Alana, I’m wondering which part of the verse you could not understand.
Alana, thank you for proving my point with your words. I love you.

Has music ever actually been destroyed through ignorance or repression?

Question by Kalibasa: Has music ever actually been destroyed through ignorance or repression?
I don’t mean “butchering” music through poor interpretation, or shoddy composing like you-know-what. I mean actually destroying music, for example by burning manuscripts or trying to eradicate pieces (even if it isn’t successful). Have you ever heard of anything like this?

I’m wondering, because it has happened many times with art and a few times with literature; I don’t even know whether it’s possible to destroy music, but it seems possible if the work is unpublished. Here are some of the worst art tragedies I’ve ever heard:

-The Russian Czars cutting up great medieval Flemish tapestries for use as seat cushions
-The Turks storing gunpowder in the Parthenon (yeah, it *used* to be perfectly preserved)
-The Vatican melting the bronze roof of the Pantheon in the 1600’s to make altarpieces
-The Iraqi Museum (don’t believe the US government- it was not just “a bunch of pots,” it was 6000-year-old masterpieces from the Fertile Crescent)

Has music ever been destroyed in such a way? Or do you think it’s impossible to destroy music in the same way as art? I remember something about Shostakovich hiding scores during Stalin’s purges, but I don’t know whether they were his own music or whether they were Bach’s WTC… ?

OK, thanks!, but maybe I should be more specific. I know about the Chinese Communists and Nazi Germany, but does anyone know if they actually succeeded in destroying all traces of the music? Even if China banned Western art, it didn’t “destroy” it- but the Soviets may have really destroyed great music. And the Nazis- ?? I doubt all those works were copied elsewhere…

[I forgot the Maya Codices! Destroyed by the Spanish because they were “Books of the Devil”- grrr… I agree on the Native Americans, but wasn’t the Lighthouse of Alexandria an accident? Still a tragedy though :)]

Has anyone ever traveled to Lebanon, after visiting Israel on the same trip? How does that work?!?

Question by Dennis –: Has anyone ever traveled to Lebanon, after visiting Israel on the same trip? How does that work?!?
I am aware that Lebanon will not allow prior travel to Israel. I have heard that I must request that Israel NOT stamp my passport.

I am flying to Amman – then Tel Aviv – then Amman – then Beirut. If my passport shows some “unaccounted” time (the time spent in Israel), will this cause a problem when I arrive in Lebanon?

I am looking for advice from people that have actually done this.

I am not interested in opinions. Please, no “opinions!!!!” I have plenty of friends that can provide opinions.

Answer by Shay p
You can avoid the “problem” of having an Israeli stamp in your passport by telling/asking the passport control officer not to stamp it, what he will do then is stamp a special small form and put it in your passport, THE END.
Remember, YOU MUST ASK FOR IT !!!

By the way, going back from Israel to Jordan, Jordanians might stamp your passport, so check if the Israeli “trick” is done by the Jordanians too !!

Why do the turkish deny that Armenian Genocide ever happened?

Question by ρυƒƒ∂α∂∂уραтяι¢ια: Why do the turkish deny that Armenian Genocide ever happened?
I’m not Armenian or anything but I live in a city where there are alot of Armenians,and with my observations they seem to hold ALOT of hate towards the turks.So my friend told me about the whole thing and honestly I was quite impressed on how much information they know.So anyway,I’ve seen alot of answers on here about the Armenian genocide from turks saying that it was backwards and that there was a TURKISH genocide but no Armenian Genocide.I’ve been searching online and there are no records of a “Turkish Genocide” but only of an Armenian one,which really disappointed me because after all these years,they still deny it.I mean,there’s proof everywhere,and turks act like they know nothing about it.What are your thoughts on this?
