1930 September 30 The Turkish newspaper Milliyet publishes a statement by the Turkish Minister of Justice” The Turks are the only sovereigns in the country.

1938 November 10 Death of Kemal Atatürk the butcher as as he was called the Greeks, Armenians, Kurds, Syrians, Pontians and persecutor of all the ethnicities of Asia Minor. He saved Turkey from the dismemberment that would have solved the region’s problems. To this end, the economically powerful Khazars who, through Turkey, wanted to control the Middle East, the Black Sea, Russia and the SE Mediterranean up to the Balkans acted actively. They did not let the Allies implement the Self-Determination of the peoples and its fragmentation into smaller states, such as Ionia, Kurdistan, Pontus, the international city of Constantinople, Ankara, etc.

1941 May. When Greece fought a bloody battle against Nazism, Turkey conscripted twenty (20) classes of Greek and Armenian minorities who still lived in Turkey and had Turkish citizenship in order to exterminate them in the same way as it had exterminated the others after World War I. P sent them to the infamous “Forced Labor Battalions” As World War II had already been declared and everyone was busy with its development (Greece was still fighting alone against the German-Italian and Bulgarian forces), the Turkish criminals had the golden opportunity to carry out the heinous crime of genocide without any reaction from international public opinion.

1942 November 11 The disgraceful Property Taxation Law of non-Muslims, the religion infamous as (Varlik Vergisi), is passed. It is a heinous act of economic exhaustion of Greek and Armenian businessmen, who were defenseless against the excesses of the Turkish Authorities and the extortions of the rulers of economic authorities of Turkey. This is how the Greek Capital was lost in Turkey. But “we are not asking for anything from Turkey” according to the doctrine of the Greek Governments.

1955 September 6. The most brutal pogrom against the Greeks of the city. The Turkish authorities organized the great persecution of the Greeks of Constantinople. 29 Churches were burned, 46 were looted, the graves of the Ecumenical Patriarchs and the Christian cemeteries suffered terrible vandalism. Thousands of shops were destroyed. Hundreds of women were raped. Small scale vandalism and brutality also occurred in Smyrna. Franco-Levantine residents of Smyrna confessed to me that at least one wife of a senior Greek officer serving at the NATO Headquarters Smyrna (LANDSOUTHEAS) was raped in subsequent Turkish incidents due to the Cypriot

1974 July 20 The Turkish Army invades Cyprus, an independent and unfortified country member of the United Nations, and occupies by military force 36% of its territory under the pretext that this was necessary to protect the Turkish-Cypriot minority which was 18% of the entire population

1974 July – August Despite the decisions of the Security Council of the United Nations No. 353, 357, 358, 359, 360 etc. which ordered: “Withdrawal without delay from the Republic of Cyprus of foreign military personnel, the invading Turkish army has remained its presence in Northern occupied Cyprus until today’ (2024), when this article is being written”. of Turkey and to restore unity and peace on the island of Aphrodite.

Invasion results:

 3,000 (three thousand) Cypriots, mostly civilians, killed by Turkish forces

1619 Greek Cypriots the missing. These include civilians, women and small children. These people disappear during or even after the Turkish invasion of the areas occupied by the Turkish troops. For many of these people there are testimonies from eyewitnesses and international organizations, that armed groups of Turkish Cypriots and their detention for a period of time in Turkish prisons. No one was interested in them state or organization.

162,000 Refugees whose properties were looted and confiscated by the Cypriot pseudo-state of Northern Cyprus

The Greek ghost town of Famagusta still remains enclosed and blocked from its inhabitants inside barbed wire fences

1978 December 25 Turkish fascists massacre hundreds of Kurds in Marash

1978 December 28 Martial law is declared in 15 provinces of Turkish Kurdistan, banning for three years any information about the suffering of the Kurdish populations there. Because so far no reaction on the part of the International Organizations and the powers of the earth has been manifested to stop the genocides of Turkey, it has been encouraged and proceeds to eliminate the Kurdish ethnicity, as it has done so far with the Greek (Ionian Pontus, Cappadocia) Armenians , Assyrios et al

 1984 -1999 the Turks killed more than 40,000 Kurds Their leader Öcalan an armed revolution began with the PKK rebels to achieve the autonomy of Kurdistan. The Turkish army with NATO weapons smothered the revolution in blood, killing more than 40,000 Kurds, destroying from the ground up thousands of Kurdish villages and driving the Kurdish populations from their ancestral homes. With the arrest of Ocalan on February 15, 1999, Turkey formally suppressed the revolution. Ocalan is still in prison. No state supported the Kurdish uprising. How long will this ancient people be slaughtered in their homeland because they want to live free, speak their language, dance their dances, enjoy democracy, have their culture, etc.?

No one has bothered Turkey so far for the continuous Genocides and crimes against international and criminal law. Thus it continues unabated its fascist and Nazi policy transformed into a neo-Ottoman Empire with conquering visions from central Asia to the Caucasus, the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans, the Aegean, Western Thrace and Cyprus and now with the events in Gaza directly threatens Israel as well. The future will prove how barbaric her policy has been and continues to be

The free world will one day realize that Turkey has escaped human and divine measures and will have to pay for its crimes and return to the international order. It is criminal in a country that has committed and is still committing genocide to equip it with modern weapon systems such as F-16 air defense systems, missiles and modern technology

A Special Court for the heinous crimes of Turkey must now act. Before Turkey causes rivers of blood to be shed. Here is her criminal record. Let the legal world prepare the Legal Indictment so that Turkey can be summoned to the Special Court and sit on the Accused’s Bench


Persecution for Turkey means: Killings, vandalism, torture, beatings, rape of women-girls and the elderly, seizure of property, looting of property and valuables, burning of houses, seizure of property by Turks, exile and certain death of those sent to Anatolia

Exile for Turkey means: Expulsion from their homes with a bogo of things and a march on foot into the interior of Turkey towards Anatolia, with blows to the idlers and dufekism to those unable to continue. This meant certain death from hunger, thirst, disease, torture, ill-treatment, beatings, shooting those who could not follow, enslavement and looting from the villages they passed and those who finally reached Anatolia died in the quarries breaking stone under the most miserable conditions. , heat or cold, lack of food, care, etc. Beautiful girls took them for their harems. Thus Turkey disappeared the millions of Greeks, Armenians, Greek Pontians, Assyrians and Cypriots of Northern Cyprus

Nationalist Declarations. Either by the government or the press they meant the unleashing of persecution against minorities by the fanatical Turkish masses, without police intervention

Minorities of Turkey For Turkey it meant and still is a slave, a slave, a person without rights who at best had to disappear and at worst to be a slave and a slave and a second-class citizen who is not protected by the law but is at the disposal of every Turkish institution he may even find himself in prison for anti-Turkish activity Western declarations about Turkey. The Khazar Turko-Mongols did not even consider them and continue their work undisturbed

The data was taken from the great book “Molon Lave” by the distinguished lawyer and internationalist Thalis Mylonas, translated into Greek by the editor of the Study Konstantinos Konstantinidis Major General R.T Author an Poet
