#HolocaustMemorialDay Never Again

We need to rise like a Phoenix from Our ashes as We did in 1919 in the leadership of Ataturk!

99 years ago on this day, the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk arrived and started to the Turkish War of Independence in Samsun on May 19, 1919.
ataturk blue eyes
The day was also touchstone of the modern Turkey, in what the vasssalage system ended, the Ottomans adopted more than 600 years it, and the Turks become an equal citizen within the laws in the Republic of Turkey thanks to Ataturk, in this way a pro-vassalage Erdogan could be prime minister, then president but now who tries to demolish the Republic and bring the uncivilized system back.
A mean our fight with the darkness hasn’t been ended yet.

The day is celebrated in Turkey as the Commemoration of Ataturk, Youth and Sports Day in honour of the arrival of Ataturk to Samsun on May 19, 1919!
Happy May 19, the Commemoration of Ataturk, Youth and Sports Day,Turkey.
Dearest Ataturk, we will never back down from our oath and your way in order to eternity of the Turkish Republic🙏🏻❤️🇹🇷
May Allah Bless Your Soul🙏🏻

Peace at HOME, Peace in the WORLD

ATATÜRK-VE-VENİZELOS

If I were a politician, I would like to work for permanent peace between Turkey and Greece.
Although their religion, language differences two nations are resemble each other than any other nation on earth, even their patriotism about their national values and hostility arguments against each other are same too.
Two sides’ politicans, intellectuals and media should seek permanent peace to back on amicable terms as Ataturk and Venizelos succeed in 1930s, even they fought each other during the the War of Turkish Independence, Venizelos nominated Ataturk for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1934.
I hope one day my dream on Turkey and Greece comes true 🙏
