Notable critic of the Erdogan regime, Enes Kanter, who has also has ties with the Gulen Movement has published a post on his Instagram calling for justice and accountability for the Armenian Genocide that reads as follows:
“As part of my wish to stand up for human rights for all people, Over the last few weeks I had a chance to meet several well-respected historians and scholars and it was eye opening to learn more about Armenian Genocide and face my ignorance.
The education system in Turkey is nationalist, biased and ignored millions of people’s sufferings. At the point where I am today, I share the pain of millions of Armenians. I believe Turkey must face its past and present crimes. I also strongly believe that democracy will eventually come to Turkey one day and it will then bind up the wound of millions of people, including Armenians and other minorities.
Dictator Erdogan is a threat to regional peace and like all other Tyrants he will lose power and face justice. He is destroying democracy and freedoms for all the people
As a community leader and a role model, I am planning to hold a basketball camp in Los Angeles for my Armenian brothers and sisters next week.
This is the first step for building peace and bridges of love between two beautiful countries. It’s time to destroy all the walls and open our hearts to each other.
The beginning of light”
