Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

  • Turkish PM slams Israel as a 'persecutor'

    ANKARA — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan slammed Israel as a "persecutor" on Saturday in the latest verbal volley since the Gaza offensive raised tensions between the regional allies.

    "Turkey has never, in its history, been on the side of persecutors, it has always defended the oppressed," Erdogan said without directly naming Israel in a speech in the central city of Kirsehir.

    "Turkey has not hostility against any country, but ... we are against injustice," he said in the televised remarks.

    Ties between the strategic allies began to sour in January when Turkey strongly condemned Israel's 22-day assault on the Gaza Strip, which was launched to counter rocket attacks by Palestinian militants.

    Relations took another sharp downturn last week when Ankara excluded the xxxish state from annual joint military exercises, prompting a rebuke from the United States.

    And in recent days, Israel criticised a Turkish state television series that depicts Israeli soldiers deliberately killing Palestinian children.

        Re: Turkish PM slams Israel as a 'persecutor'

        A senior Turkish military source was quoted as saying: "Israel has failed yet again to deliver the Israeli-made surveillance drones known as Herons to Turkey. Turkey needs those vehicles in its fight against terror. What led to the recent crisis between Turkey and Israel was the delay in delivery."

        The source said Ankara ordered 10 drones for $180 million and although the manufacturers, Israel's Elbit and the arms industry, rescheduled delivery dates, the Turkish military command does not believe they will keep to them.
        The Israelis don't like Erdogan's government and maintain that it has extremist connections. Erdogan however moves the right way on foreign policy and he is not entirely wrong to try to counter the Turkish armies influence either.

        Turkey at the end of the day is a Conservative Muslim country and whilst secularism may apply to a segment of it's middle class, it does not necessarily to the Turkish masses.

          Ayrilik (Farewell) - the Turkish TV drama series (played on Turkey's central TRT-1) on the Israeli atrocities in Gaza has caused a diplomatic furor in Israel.

              I do not stand behind Israeli actions via the Palestinians but the latest statement and actions coming from Ankara are completely saturated in hypocrisy. Erdogan and his ilk are living in fantasyland.

                But if they keep up with such statements, their hypocrisy will become so apparent it will have to be confronted. If Turkey wants the right (which it does) to criticise the actions of other nations, and have their criticism taken seriously rather than laughed at, they had better be sure their own actions (both now and in the past) are clean and above reproach.

                  Agree. The current Turkish regime is injuring itself. The Israelis are certainly fuming. The political situation is changing, the common Israeli, never overtly pro-Turkish is now becoming hostile towards Turkey. Not that Turkish-Israeli relations are going to combust immediately. This will take time. Meanwhile the Israelis slowly help the Kurds in Northern Iraq/Kurdistan, as they should. Why not cultivate a new Muslim ally, and one with oil? On the flipside, Azeri-Israeli relations may remain strong. The Israelis and Turks could eventualy break ties but I don't necessarily see Armenia/Armenians benefitting from this. The Israelis in the diaspora/ outside of Israel are still clinging to Turkey and holding out hope.

                    If Turkey cannot hold good relations with Israel, no Muslim country can. Just being Muslim, even if non-practicing, correlates very strongly with negative perceptions of Israel. Even most secular Turks were never pro-Israel, in fact some extremist Kemalists believe that the AKP was founded by Zionists whose misson is to weaken Turkey by planting political Islam within Turkish politics.

                    Iraqi Kurds said themselves they rather fall under the regional influence of Turkey rather than Iraq.
