The Ipekci "award" given to Demetri Kitsis.
As the supreme sign of "culture" (koultouriareoi), many "Hellenes" have accepted the Ipekci "award" for Helleno-Turkish "friendship". But who was this journalist named Abdi Ipekci?
On August 21 1976, this "symbol" of Helleno-Turkish "friendship" and "peace" had the following to say in the Turkish daily Milliyet:
"Looking at Turkey, the Hellenes were jumping all over the Aegean.. these failures (of the Turkish governments) created great injustices against Turkey. One only needs to look at a map to understand the dominance of the Hellenes in the Aegean is not justified. This situation must change... The question is whether this will be accomplished with violence or not."
With such peacefully inspiring words, how could one resist the temptation of trying to achieve such an "award"?
