stuck record

My mind just keeps worrying away at the so-called Armenian Genocide. IcarusRedeemed has posted some interesting links. (The TallArmenianTale website he refers to is one that I have read pretty extensively, as I my opinions have swung on the issue over the last 5 years). And I think I need to turn to some scholarly books, too, starting with these ones and these ones, who don't see eye to eye.

In relation to this, and to recent murders of journalists and Christians it sounds like ultranationalism is a greater problem than Islam in modern Turkey. Only a weapon of mass forgiveness and love can heal these wounds.
