"No, this commentary is not in reference to the terrible terrorist attack on Dec. 19 in Berlin, in which an Islamic fanatic drove a truck into a crowd, killing 12 and injuring 50. Rather, it's in reference to killings that happened in Berlin in 1921 and 1922 -- killings that help to explain why the Middle East is such a dangerous, volatile region today and why the West is victim to attacks by Islamists. ... The killings that took place in 1921 and 1922 were actually three assassinations. The assassins were Armenians from Turkey, and the assassinated were three Young Turks, which was the name of the Muslim leaders of the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. The three Young Turks had been given asylum in Germany after the war when it came to light that they had sanctioned the Armenian genocide, a genocide that had resulted in the deaths of between 700,000 and one million Armenians."
