Silencing the Truth

News of persecution in Turkey is usually focused on the Armenians. However, it should be remembered that all Christians  have suffered under the Turks. David brought to my attention the murder of university lecturer in the town where he lives in Sweden.

Fuat Deniz was an internationally recognised expert on the Assyrian Genocide. His throat was slit, which is traditionally symbolic of silencing someone. Swedish authorities also believe the motivation for the murder was political. The Turks don’t take too kindly to accusations of genocide. They are willing to kill to stop them.

    Sol, that would sound most Monty Python-ish if it wasn’t so close to the truth.
