“I am very cheerful, happy and proud”
Mayor of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Tunç Soyerevaluated the 100th anniversary of the liberation of İzmir in the parliamentary session. President Soyer said, “We have two main reasons for the September 9 celebrations we organized this year. First, 100 years is a very important time period in the history of countries. 100 years must be remembered and reminded. The example I always give; The Eiffel Tower was built on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. Countries have always wanted to celebrate the 100th anniversary of their victory and republic in a grand manner. This is very understandable. When I was a candidate, I said, 'I am lucky that I will be the mayor on the 100th anniversary of the republic and liberation of this country.' How lucky we are to celebrate our 100th anniversary. I am very happy, very happy, very proud,” he said.
“One day, someone will try to make traitors heroes”
Stating that the country's memory needs to be refreshed, Soyer said, "If you do not refresh that memory in this country, one day someone will try to make traitors heroes. One day, someone tries to describe victories won with tens of painstakingly as victories won without firing a bullet. We have to refresh our memory. The traitor Vahdettin left the country. This is elementary school 2nd grade info. It may be attempted to write another history, but the facts do not change. You can make another effort. You might want to show him the hero. But the facts do not change. Çanakkale, which was called 'Canakkale is impassable' and thousands of martyrs were given, was passed. How was it passed? It was passed without a single shot. What happened to the cherished memory of the martyrs? Vahdettin and Damat Ferit Pasha signed the Treaty of Sèvres.”
“We don't have a problem with our ancestors”
Reminding that Fatih Sultan Mehmet had taken Istanbul, President Soyer said: “He is the most charismatic, four-lingual, visionary young leader of the world at that time. Our ancestor, we are proud. It is not someone's monopoly to be proud of our ancestors. We are all people of this country and they are our ancestors. Just like Piri Reis, Mimar Sinan is our ancestor, and Barbaros Hayrettin Pasha is our ancestor, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Han is our ancestor. We do not have a problem with our ancestors. It is necessary to distinguish between traitors and heroes of the homeland. If you don't parse it, put it in the same container, it won't. You hurt the souls of the martyrs.”
“We have to part ways with thieves and thieves”
President Soyer said, “They wanted to issue 5 death warrants for our national hero, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and kill him. Who? Vahdettin… How many assassinations did they want to organize? Who? Groom Ferit Pasha. And what did they do? They boarded the British battleships and left. What can I defend against this man? Nationalism, patriotism and respect for ancestors are not monopolized by anyone in this country. We will continue to remember our ancestors with respect. We have to part ways with thieves and thieves. History tells us this. Our ancestors taught the world a great lesson. It's just Greek, not English. To the imperialist powers of the whole world. This is a national struggle that inspires all oppressed nations and shows that full independence and freedom is possible. The biggest slap of imperialism was taken by our ancestors. We have no problem with our ancestors. The Ottoman is ours and the republic is ours. But Vahdettin, Damat Ferit Pasha… Our path will never meet with those traitors. The pain and suffering they inflicted will never be forgotten.”
“There couldn't be a better holiday than this”
Expressing that there is no discriminatory language in his statement on the night of September 9, President Soyer said, “People's joy and entertainment have been stolen in this country. Not only September 9, Izmir International Fair was incredibly crowded. It was great, people flocked to it. Incredibly colorful, lively, crowded. We haven't heard anything negative from a single person. The same thing happened on the evening of September 9th. There were hundreds of thousands of people there on the evening of September 9, wouldn't a single complaint come? It was a meeting that gave hope and morale to the whole of Turkey. Both IEF and 9 September. Because our people are tired of speaking a divisive language. They are tired of being polarized, separated and marginalized. They all rejoiced with Tarkan in that square, they remembered our ancestors. There could not be a better holiday than this. It was truly a feast," he said.
“The first bullet and the last bullet both come out of Izmir”
President Soyer stated that there is a polarizing climate in the country and that there is peace. sözcüHe said that they wanted to create separation from the world and said: “Why wouldn't anyone defend peace? How do we oppose peace? Greek and French are taught when necessary. If there is an attack, invasion, threat, İzmir stands first. Both the first and last bullets come out of Izmir. Let no one be in doubt. However, this does not mean opposing peace. We have to defend peace.”
Congratulations to the world champion
The President also congratulated İsmail Nezir, who became the world champion by winning the gold medal in the 20 meter hurdles final at the World Under-400 Athletics Championships held in Cali, Colombia.
