11 shots of awful tragedy
April 24, 2017
The history of the Armenian Genocide had been fixed in dozens of thousands of documents – diplomatic reports, evidences of the witnesses, memoirs and oral narratives. Besides, there are hundreds of photographs made by Armenians and foreigners during those years of horror.
Denying the truth

In the latest row, Turkey has recalled its ambassador to Austria amid a growing spat between the two countries. According to a Deutsche Welle report, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu accused Austria at a press conference of being a center of racism and Islamophobia that supports Kurdish terrorist groups, adding Turkey would "review its relations" with Austria. "Unfortunately, the foundation for our bilateral relations and cooperation to continue as normal has disappeared," Cavusoglu said.

August-September 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of Musa Dagh resistance. As a celebration of victory, PanARMENIAN.Net will periodically present the chronology of events.
French students will hardly miss the opportunity to learn true history of Ottoman Empire, while Ankara again compromised itself.

Poor knowledge on legislation and governmental system of other countries played a mean trick on Turkey and, unfortunately, on Armenian media as well. The decision of the French ministry of education, which has nothing to do with the country’s president, to include study of the Armenian Genocide into the secondary school curriculum, sparked a new splash of hatred towards France in Ankara. Turkey met this move with an immediate rebuff, and this is not the first case. The Turks seem to be just busy finding fault with the whole world over the Armenian Genocide.
Knesset will weigh all pros and contras before naming the Armenian massacre in Ottoman Empire as genocide, and dismiss the recognition.

The initiative of the Israeli Meretz party on recognition of the Armenian Genocide emerges with every case of deterioration of relations between Israel and Turkey, which seems to be the worst ever now. On June 12, by decision of Speaker Reuven Rivlin the Knesset plenary session will discuss the topic of the Armenian Genocide. This, however, does mean that the Israeli authorities are going to recognize the Genocide, Haaretz paper reports.
The color and pride of the Ottoman Empire were trampled, desecrated and scolded by nothing-can-do tribes and murderous mobs.

First the desert was dead and lifeless; only the wind blew over sand dunes, and from time to time caravans passed by. Then it was filled with sounds. At first the sounds were strange, shuffling, as if someone were dragging their feet on the sand, sinking ankle-deep. Then the sounds became tangible, the desert revived, vibrating under the weight of hundreds of thousands of bare, wounded legs. And then there came to be heard moans, cries, and endless shots.
In all probability Turkey has decided to engage in the denial policy of the Aliyev regime, believing that if for official Baku Armenians are enemy number one, she cannot find a better ally than Azerbaijan.

There remains little time before the Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide victims, and Turkey, true to herself, is hastily trying to prove the world, the Armenians and perhaps herself that after all she is not an heir to the Ottoman Empire. It proves to be difficult, almost impossible, but the Turks are trying.
Measuring others’ corn by her own bushel, Turkey does not even admit the thought that France, being faithful to democracy and freedom of speech, could not have voted down the bill.

The incredible happened: French Senate passed the bill criminalizing denial of the Armenian Genocide. The bill passed with 127 votes for, 86 against, with the total number of voters being 213. The bill renders denial punishable with a year in jail and a fine of 45,000 euros. It shall come into force upon being signed by President Sarkozy, who is hardly probable to change his mind at the last moment.
Turkey slams criminalization of genocide denial as violation of freedom of speech but throws to jail people who dare speak of Armenian Genocide.

On December 22, 2011, French National Assembly passed a bill criminalizing public denial of the Armenian Genocide. If passed and signed into law by the Senate, the bill would impose a 45,000 euro fine and a year in prison for anyone in France who denies this crime against humanity committed by the Ottoman Empire. On this day, almost all Armenians celebrated a minor national victory. Almost all…
The growing anti-Israel rhetoric in Turkey on the threshold of parliamentary elections can in no way improve or worsen the already established relations.

The Israeli Knesset once again tabled the issue of the Armenian Genocide recognition. On May 18, at a plenary session, the Knesset brought to a vote the question of passing the Genocide recognition issue to the Committee of Education, Culture and Sports headed by Alex Miller (NDI). The initiative was unilaterally approved, with 20 people voting in favor. Initiator of the ballot was native of Lithuania, Zahava Galon (Meretz), who picked up the “Armenian baton” from the retired fellow party member Haim Oron.
