Turkish cruelty : A mother watching her children starve to death during Armenian Genocide.

The Armenian Genocide was a systematic extermination by the Ottoman Empire towards a minority, the Armenians, living in their own homeland but “trespassing into what is now the modern-turkish state”.
It took place during and after WWI and it happened in two phases: the widespread murder of able-bodied Armenian men through forced labor and massacre; the death march/deportation of women, children, the sick, and the elderly through the Syrian Desert.
The Nazi Party also visited the Ottoman Empire to get “inspiration” on how to carry out their genocidal campaign during WWII by seeing how the Ottomans were exterminating the Armenians.
The Armenian Genocide is widely accepted to have began on April 24, 1915, when the Ottomans arrested ~250 Armenian scholars, intellectuals, and community leaders in Constantinople (Istanbul).
The total number of people killed has been estimated between 1 and 1.5 million. The Assyrians, the Greeks, and other minority groups were similarly targeted by the Ottoman government. The treatment they received is widely accepted by many historians to be part of the same genocidal policy.
The modern day turkish state denies that this was an act of genocide.
we kurds also condemn our great-grandparents’ and grandparents’ participation in this heinous act.

This is the example of the prophet, it’s not what he was wearing or how long his beard was that defined his imaan and detachment from selfish pleasures. May Allah make giving easy for us.

So I decided to call out Perrie Edwards from Little Mix on her appropriation of war bonnets on instagram and here is the response some crusty jar of mayonnaise gave me

Basically she’s invalidating the problems of immigrants, making fun of poverty in Mexico, thinking I owe her an explanation about moving from Mexico to the US, and refusing to apologize. 

And white people still talk about how racism doesn’t exist anymore smh.

for all non-Syrians: when someone asks a syrian in front of you or asks you how syria is today please don’t reply with “a shit storm,” it’s so fucking insensitive regardless of how you meant it
