But it is."Uh but Lyceria, that is whataboutism blablabla"
I believe this fits perfectly to this thread tho.But it is.
How about you make a thread about whatever happened at Karabag and discuss it on its own terms, rather than trying to diminish the crimes of the Ottoman state and army (for some dumb nationalistic reason)?
This is either a fallacious or naive statement. Hate crimes may as well breed more hate crimes than lead to peace. Actually it may even be easier to become the aggressor in such a case. One book (a play's transcription) I've read, based on real life experiences in the Lebanese civil war, may help you see the light on such things. I recommend you read it if is possible for you. I took the liberty to translate a particularly relevant part of the book:See, you would think that people who say to have suffered so much would have a culture revolving around NOT being like the people they accuse of genocide.
I believe this is covered under U.S. fair use, but I know citation is definitely legal in Canada, where the play was written and published. I also own a physical copy of the book. Please support the author Wajdi Mouawad by buying his book "Incendies".Wajdi Mouawad - Incendies - Page 43 said:Context: Nawal is looking for her missing child with the help of her friend Sawda. They investigate the orphanage of Kfar Rayat where they meet the doctor there.
NAWAL. And the orphans who were here, where are they now?
THE DOCTOR. It happened so quickly. The refugees arrived. They took everyone. Even the newborn babies. Every single one of them. They were furious.
THE DOCTOR. To avenge themselves. Two days ago, the militia hanged three teenage refugees who got outside the camps. Why did the militia hang these adolescents? Because two refugees from the camp had raped and killed a girl from the village of Kfar Samira. Why did these two guys rape the girl? Because the militia stoned a refugee family. Why did the militia stone the family? Because refugees had burned a house near the hill of thymes. Why did the refugees burn that house? Because the militia destroyed one of their water wells. Why did the militia destroy the refugees' well? Because refugees burned the harvests near the river of the dog. Why did the refugees burn the harvests? There is most likely a reason, my memory stops here, I cannot recall events further down the line. But the story could go on for a long while. From anger to anger, from sorrow to sadness, from rape to murder, until the beginning of creation.
