Ankara Slams Trump’s Statement on Armenian Genocide as “Disinformation”

________________________

On Thursday, US President Trump commemorated the anniversary of the start of the Armenian genocide in a statement released by the White House, saying that the “Meds Yeghern”, a term used by Armenians to describe the 1915 events, was one of the worst atrocities in the history of the 20th century. The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement:

We consider that the disinformation and false definitions contained in US President Trump’s written statement of 24 April 2017 regarding the 1915 events came from information pollution created over the years by some Armenian circles in the USA by means of propaganda. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended the ceremony to commemorate the event at the Armenian Patriarchate of Istanbul on Monday. We expect that the new US Administration wouldn’t take credence in the one-sided historical narrative of these circles, known for their tendency to violence and hate speech, but that it should adopt an approach that takes into consideration the sufferings of all sides.

The Ottoman authorities killed about 1.5 million Armenians between 1915 and 1923; they also expelled hundreds of thousands out of their territory. Turkey disputed the figure and denied the genocide, blaming the deaths on wartime irregularities (it occurred during World War I and the following Greco-Turkish War of 1918-23: editor).

5 May 2015. Racism is Racism… There is No “Unique” Form of It, I’m Afraid

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. American Democracy. 2015

_______________________________

There’s no such thing as a unique form of racism. That is, there’s no form of racism that’s worse than another one is. They’re all equally vile… they’re all equally corrosive to the society and people that shelter it. For instance, the USA hasn’t dealt with its refusal to recognise that racism against non-whites is endemic. Likewise, the Galician Uniates have a deep-seated hatred of Russians that they refuse to admit. Both are similar to the Central European antisemitism that gave birth to Nazism. It doesn’t matter what the object of hatred is (Roma, Jews, blacks, Mexicans, American Indians, Russian Orthodox, Armenians)… the hatred directed at a particular class is identical to the hatred one sees in other situations. That is, the American hatred of blacks is analogous to Galician Uniate hatred of Russians, just as Central European hatred of Jews and Turkish hatred of Armenians is the same thing.

There’s no “UNIQUE” racism… as much as this-or-that group may think so, there isn’t. It’s all of-a-piece, sadly enough. That is, George Zimmerman gunning down Trayvon Martin was no different from a Galician Azov Battalion tough raping a woman in Mariupol. I’d say that the racist motivation behind both were not only same… it’s the only form that racism can take. Love is creative… hate is not. That’s why racism is so distressingly similar in its banality and horror. That’s why I won’t vote Republican ever again. The Republican Party smiles at American racism and it smiles at Galician Uniate racism. Don’t forget Pastor Niemöller’s poem… if you don’t stand up for others, there won’t be anyone to stand up for YOU. Think on that…

Official Statement by DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko on the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire

00 Tatev Monastery. ARMENIA. Russia and Armenia Friends

______________________________

OFFICIAL

I address Armenia, the Armenian people, and Armenian citizens of the DNR.

The Armenian diaspora has long been an important and integral part of the multiethnic population of the Donbass, and for centuries Armenia and the Armenian people were one of the most loyal and fraternal allies of Russia and the whole family of the Slavic peoples. A centuries-old friendship, a common faith, and a common determination to preserve our traditions unite us. Together, shoulder-to-shoulder, we beat the common foe during the Great Patriotic War and rebuilt our national home. Today, Armenians in the DNR actively work to build our country; they bravely defend our motherland’s borders.

Today is a mournful date associated with one of the most tragic events in human history… the Armenian Genocide. One hundred years later, we, the people of the DNR, bow to the memory of all the victims of this tragedy. Today, we, just like the fraternal Armenian people did a hundred years ago, face persecution on ethnic and religious grounds. We also face those who wish to destroy us physically, to obliterate our language, and to break our will. Therefore, we understand the pain and suffering of the Armenian people; we can see how their anguish and misfortune relates to ours. We believe that there’s no place in the world for nationalism or for incitement to religious hatred… a new generation of Armenians should never experience the horror that Armenians all over the world call the Medz Yeghern (Մեծ Եղեռն/The Great Calamity). I want to wish fraternal Armenia and Armenians living in the DNR peace, wellbeing, and prosperity.

Editor:

The Galician Uniate nationalist nutters are trying to ram Uniatism down our throats… they’re trying to replace literary Russian with their hillbilly semi-Polish pidgin… they’re trying to kill all who oppose their demonic plans. They’ll stop at nothing. I fear that nationalist fanatics who support the fascist filth in Kiev run the so-called “Ukrainian Catholic” and “Ukrainian Orthodox” churches. No… most of the people aren’t guilty… not at all. I can’t name the people who showed kindness to me in the past or in the present, for fear that some nationalist creepo supremo would hurt them. Yes… it’s that bad. Therefore, have a care… be prudent, don’t argue with such sorts. Tell the truth… tell it to all who’ll listen. Remember… if we don’t stand tall for our coreligionists, the Uniate nationalists will do as the Ottomans did. In fact, since they’re fanatics, they’d be worse. This is the world that we live in…
