Today for the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli land battles, a memorial day is organizing in Turkey.
I do not know how important this is for the world. There are many people who are pursuit of imperialist lies rather than to learn the facts. Of course, the propaganda is very important. If it is continued to tell a lie millions of times by continuous financial supports, it will be a lot of people will believe. And there are hypocrites among those who believe that had himself/herself put in the anti-imperialist class.
I want to say that Dardanelles war will not care much by hypocrite world in today. Because today, in many parts of the planet, many of people will repeat the great imperialist lie with great enthusiasm of medieval mentality with show of the Pope and the mediatic characters and with taking huge financial support of the UK, France and the US.
“Writing history is as important as making history. If the writer does not remain true to the maker, then the unchangeable reality transforms into a confusing matter for humanity.” / Mustafa Kemal Ataturk 1931
Today, there will be a historic wrong and often misguided agenda which is far away from scientific mind on the planet. In fact, the background there will be the laughter of the medieval mentality. Because, in this so called civilized mankind era, medieval mentality knows that history can still write by politicians and religious functionaries. However, this will not be heard during the show. A century ago in Anatolia, so-called great western states because of they defeated on battle field, they did a good preparation for the centuries for revenge. I have to give the devil his due actually. If the tragicomic thing is those who are living in with shame and stable about perpetuate this lie.
The greatness of the Dardanelles wars will stay in the memories of those who have lived and want to keep it alive with truths on history. I remember with respect those, who died at the battle both Turks and Anzacs at that days. Let’s finish this post with the text which is placed at Kilitbahir on the right side of the Dardanelles.
This writing is actually a poem. Its first two lines are placed at the slope. Here is in English:
“Stop wayfarer! This land that you stepped unknowingly is a place where a era went down.
Bend down and lend your ear, for this silent mound,
This is the place where the heart of a nation sighs.”
And all ships that passing through the Dardanelles, passes in front of this quiet but powerful scream of the thousands of people who died in these lands…
Addition: Besides, there is a huge lie and smear campaign in the world today, they are making propaganda about even Ataturk words over this post title didn’t belong to him. Those clowns who claim that lie, should apply to me; my response to them will be very nice.;)
