‘Farewell to Salonica’

‘Farewell to Salonica: City at the Crossroads’ by Leon Sciaky (Haus Books, $25, 262 pages)

If I could travel back in time to any city at any historical moment, Salonica at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries would be near the top of the list. Distant from the surveillance and authority of Istanbul, perched on the edge of Europe, Salonica was an archetypal Ottoman metropolis, a cosmopolitan mélange tugged in conflicting directions by the forces of history. The city - majority Jewish for many years after the wave of migration from Spain in the 15th century - had become a crucible for dangerous and revolutionary new ideas and movements by the end of the 1800s, a whirlpool of conflicting forces tugging at the status quo.

Obama avoids using ‘genocide,’ opting for ‘Meds Yeghern’ in April 24 commemoration

U.S. President Barack Obama has once again avoided using the word “genocide” in his remarks to commemorate the killings of Armenians in 1915, describing it as “Meds Yeghern,” an Armenian term meaning “great calamity.”

“Today we commemorate the Meds Yeghern and honor those who perished in one of the worst atrocities of the 20th century,” Obama said in a statement April 24.

Obama, who is currently on a trip to Japan, has chosen to opt for this wording in all his commemorative statements on April 24 since he came into office.

Turkish PM offers condolences to descendants of Armenians killed in 1915

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday offered condolences to the descendants of victims of the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman troops during World War I.

Erdogan’s statement, on the eve of the 99th anniversary of the beginning of mass deportations of Armenians in 1915, was the first such overt comment by a Turkish leader over the killings, which are considered by many, including the French government, as the first genocide of the 20th century.

FM Davutoglu: Turkish PM's Kosovo remark meant to stress close ties -Turkey would never use "Neo-Ottoman" rhetoric, Foreign Minister Davutoglu says.

 ANKARA (AA) - Turkish Premier's remarks on Kosovo were meant to emphasize the strong bonds between the countries, said Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Sunday.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had called Kosovo "our second home" and said, "Turkey is Kosovo, and Kosovo is Turkey,” which drew the ire of Serbia.

Davutoglu said the Serbian translation of Erdogan's address in front of a packed crowd of Kosovar Turks in Prizren portrayed Turkey as if it had an "expansionist and Neo-Ottoman" attitude.

He said he talked with Serbian Foreign Minister Ivan Mrkic on the issue.

Landmark Greek Orthodox church in Taksim seeks respect, new façade

Vercihan Ziflioğlu (
Sometimes, only a careful pair of eyes can pick out Hagia Triada, a landmark Greek Orthodox church on Istanbul’s Taksim Square, which is enveloped by restaurants, cafes and shops, some of which are reportedly illegal. Its courtyard, once a peaceful spot at the starts of the country’s busiest street, is now filled with the noise of power generators and occasionally the smells of food.

The structures around the 133-year-old church, however, might now be removed, if Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gets his way as part of a controversial redevelopment plan for Taksim Square that has sparked fury in Istanbul and beyond. While somewhat welcome, the June 2 announcement caught the church off-guard.
