Turkish American Community Nationwide Remembers Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

Posted by TAFSUS Board | November 10, 2012

I am not leaving a spiritual legacy of dogmas, unchangeable petrified directives. My spiritual legacy is science and reason.

People who will follow us will realize that upon challenging and deeply entrenched obstacles, even though we may not have fully achieved all our goals, we never made a concession and always took science and reason as our guide.

Time is passing by so quickly; nations’, societies’, and people’s perception on even welfare and misery changes. In this world, claiming to bring never changing judgment means denying progression of reason and science. What I wanted to do and what I tried to achieve for the Turkish nation is quite evident.

If those people who wish to follow me after I am gone take the reason and science as their guides they will be my true spiritual heirs.

30 AUGUST 1922 REVISITED

Posted by Ayhan Ozer | August 30, 2012

The month of August has a special meaning for the Turkish nation. The World War I ended in October 1918 with the defeat of the Ottoman Empire, and the Allies imposed the notorious Treaty of Sevres on the country. This Treaty was signed on August 10, 1920 by the Sultan's supine Istanbul government, and brought to the end the 622-year existence of the once vast and glorious Empire. The fledgling nationalist government in Ankara under Mustafa Kemal did not recognize this cruel Treaty, and the Grand National Assembly in its session of August 19, 1920 proclaimed all those who signed the Treaty of Sevres as "traitors". This Treaty was never ratified. This was an ominous August.
