To whom it may concern,

If you see something vile, etc, on Historum, just immediately click on the Report Button.

It is the little square icon with the exclamation point(!) in it just above the name the the country of the poster.

A small box will open for you to type in your reason for reporting the post and when you click on Send, it will automatically be reported to the moderators.

If you just lower yourself to his level, then both of you will probably be suspended.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Really a shameful video. I meant the tourists, and people who established here from other religon (asyrians, armenians) but i think this video is recorded in Kayseri. I know their people are very conservative and not used to student life. But its not about religion, its about different lifestlyes' conflict. Each side must not bother theirselves, but sometimes one side is too angry, maybe he was upset about something else and it appeared in this dialog, but i think it will heal by time in Turkey, to get conservative people used this kind of lifestyles, with the help of university facilites wided all over the Turkey now...

A good example of "mahalle baskısı". I bet the problem was not the noise.

you are not wrong arabs were pagan and if we believe in giving land to people who inhabited the area in classical antiquity ( I support isreali settlement because israel was a jewish area in antiquity ) , then the mecca should be given to Hindus as we are the only pagans who have survived in 21st century and muslims with all their fire could not finish us off.

kaaba was a hindu temple usurped by Muhammad pbuh who smashed hindu idols and then turned that hindu shrine into a muslim place.

if it is about historical rights, Mecca should go to hindus and illegal occupation of the shrine must be stopped.

if it was the noise, the perpetrators (a.k.a mahalleli)are making more noise by cussing and shouting they hate people who are not as "conservatist" and "religious" as them. a total sick kind of mentality.

You mean the AKP? They are nothing in comparison with what you find in Arab countries and some non-Arab ones too. Or in other words, remember Saudi Arabia and the AKP will look like hippies.

A conservative party which is ruling in Turkey now. They are very mildly Islamist, but not pro-Sharia, which is, I think, the main criterium for being considered a real Islamist. But Turkey is much more secular than other Middle Eastern countries, so I guess that they might be called Islamist in the local context.
