Flag-burning is so passé.
What do you imagine a less learned person would think after taking one look at these pictures (with its Beirut backdrop, flag-burning crowd and signs in Arabic and some other alien script)?
And I wonder how many non-Armenian Lebanese or Palestinians actually attended this protest? I'm guessing not many.
The one sign I like is the one that says Ես Մշեցի եմ (I'm from Mush). Oh, and also the sign that transliterates Արարատ as Ararad.

They would see angry Armenians, who lost 1.5 million of their great-grandparents because of a genocide demanding their rights and lands. English and Arabic signs for the odars.
We were about 45-50K I'd guess 1000 were only odars if not less.
About the Արարատ, it's actually spelled as Ararad in Western Armenian and Ararat in Eastern. So, I don't get what your fuss is all about.
Գիտեմ։ It's just that nobody pronounces it that way except for Western Armenian speakers (it's pronounced Ararat in English), so my fuss is that it'll just confuse the non-Western Armenian-speaking individual.Originally Posted by Sevag
And I'm a WA speaker, by the way (father is from Aleppo; mother is from Beirut by way of Tripoli). Parev.
Parevner! Halebtsinere khosh martig en, Tripoli krete hay chi mnats.
