Jamal Pasha, known as al-Saffah (“The Blood Shedder”) was governor of the Ottoman Vilayet of Syria just before World War I. He is shown here surrounded by the Shaykhs of Iraqi Bedouin tribes, celebrating the completion of the al-Hindya dam on the Euphrates river near al-Hilla, south of Baghdad. Photo from Wikipedia.

  4. Dear Edouard , there is no evidence about a genocide on armenians. Supported by Russians and French Armenians killed thousends of turks. They’re still continuing with genocide in caucasus.
    In the West you can find churches build by turkish Bones visited as tourist attraction. Don’t forget what happens in Syria, palestina since turks Left this Area.

  5. Hmmm… then we disagree.
