French Historian Applies For Turkish Citizenship

French historian Jean-Michel Thibaux, who has come out against the French bill that would make it a crime to question the so-called Armenian genocide, is now applying to become a Turkish citizen. Thibaux brought the matter to Mehmet Dulger, the head of Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Commission Mehmet Dulger, through a Turkish friend. Dulger then forwarded the request to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “If the Turkish government grants citizenship to me, Turkey will be my homeland,” said Thibaux. /Milliyet/

--------------------------------------------

Famous French historian Jean-Michel Thibaux has applied for Turkish citizenship saying that his country is blackmailing Turkey.

The historian’s attempt to become a Turkish citizen has been discovered by Mehmet Dulger, president of the Commission of Foreign Affairs at the Turkish Grand National Assembly.

The letter Thibaux penned was given to Mehmet Dulger by a friend named Atakan. Dulger disclosed this to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan yesterday.

Dulger said the prime minister wanted the matter to be immediately forwarded to the Ministry of Interior for the application’s immediate assessment.

In his e-mail to his friend Atakan, Thibaux blamed France for blackmailing Turkey. He claims that he is revolting against France’s ‘cheap’ policy.

“When they attempted to force Turkey into the recognition of the genocide six years ago, I had taken upon myself the task of defending Turkey. Chirac still says that ‘if it wants to enter the EU, Turkey should act in this direction.’ I would like to tell my Turkish friends that there is a blackmailing situation here and just as six years ago; the unexplained reason why they are following this cheap policy is only to obtain the vote of the people of Armenian origin living in France, and I’m rising up against this!”/ ZAMAN
