    Canadian's grave relocated to corner in Bodrum cemetery

    ISTANBUL – Hürriyet
    The remains of a retired Canadian diplomat have been relocated to another corner in the Bodrum cemetery, following a local family’s complaints. Wife of the late diplomat Hans Himmelbach is deeply unhappy about the incident and says her efforts to stop the relocation was futile

    The remains of retired Canadian diplomat Hans Himmelbach have been relocated to a remote corner in the Bodrum cemetery where he was buried, because a prominent local family was uncomfortable with his proximity to the graves of their loved ones.

    “I cannot digest that my husband’s grave was moved to a corner because the neighborhood cemetery owners didn’t want him. This behavior doesn’t suit my country or the people of my country. This implementation is backward, I’ve lost my sleep,” said his wife İlknur Kummul Himmelbach, a previous national sports woman and a Turkish record holder.

    The tolerance of Islam is directly proportional to its minority status.

    So, your thinking is as long as we are no more bigoted and insensitive than the lowest common denominator in Turkey, we're golden?

    This ain't a race to the bottom, Mr. Fitnah.

    Just highlighting what the tolerance of intolerance gets you in the end.

    So, your thinking is that as long as the Muslims worldwide include even one bigot, you intend to hang on to your hate?

    This helps how, Mr. Fitnah?

    It has nothing to do with Muslims.
    It has to do with Islam.
    I told you a long time ago to not confuse the two.

    Ah, Mr. Fitnah you never do see what's right in front of you. The people in that little NY town were embarrassed by a politican who jumped to conclusions and made bigoted remarks. Their remedy, most of them, has been to reach out to the Muslims and become acquainted with them as people. It seems to be working, and since it's almost Christmas, I thought it was a heart-warming example of the good will we should all try to exhibit.

    Kinda sorta like you and I trying harder to treat one another with civility, see?
