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.


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.

  • Immigrant Turks In Iran, Attack Armenians, Iranian Government


    March 3, 2006

    Appo Jabarian
    Managing Editor, Executive Publisher

    Hye Kiank Armenian Weekly

    According to various news sources, a group of
    immigrant Turks residing in Tavriz, Iran, gathered on
    February 27 in a violent demonstration in front of a
    local Armenian church, chanting anti-Christian,
    anti-Iranian, and anti-Armenian slogans.

    The Turkish protesters inside Iran, mostly from the
    neighboring Republics of Azerbaijan and Turkey, held
    the demonstration under the cover of being
    anti-Armenian and anti-Christian. But they also aimed
    it at the Iranian government.

    On one hand, they expressed “dissatisfaction” against
    the Iranian government’s “suppression” of their Turkic
    language and culture. On the other, they cried: “we
    want the destruction of Armenia.”

    The destruction by the Army of the Republic of
    Azerbaijan in late 2005, of thousands of “Khach-kars”
    (Armenian cross headstones), some as old as eight
    centuries, inside the Turkish/Azeri-occupied Armenian
    province of Nakhitchevan, seemingly did not satisfy
    the Turkic demonstrators’ appetite for destruction.
    The demonstrators, who were not granted permit by the
    Iranian internal security authorities, were eventually
    forced to disband.

    The Armenian Prelacy of Iran issued a statement
    thanking the Iranian government for its timely
    response in averting yet new calamities against
    Armenians at the hands of immigrant Turks inside Iran.
    At the same time, the Armenian Prelate appealed the
    members of the Iranian-Armenian community for
    refraining from escalating the adverse situation
    caused by Turkish provocateurs.

    During recent decades, the extremist Turks from Turkey
    and Azerbaijan, armed with pan-Turkism, have embarked
    on a disinformation campaign aimed at brainwashing the
    northern Iranians, also known as Iranian Azerbaijanis,
    as belonging to Turkic ethnicity.

    Recently, in open cooperation with immigrant Turks
    inside Iran, Turks in US and elsewhere, have initiated
    an anti-Iranian on-line petition. In a message
    addressed to the Director-General of UNESCO, Mr.
    Koïchiro Matsuura, the petitioners claimed the
    existence of an “issue which affects more than 30
    million people in Iran. On behalf of Azeris in Iran,
    we ask that you take action to protect our mother

    “Pan-Turkism is a racist movement that not only
    threatens Iran, but (also) Greece, Armenia, Russia,
    Ukraine and even, to a certain extent, China. If
    unchecked, Pan-Turkism may become as dangerous to
    international peace and stability, as Islamic
    fundamentalism has become today,” says Dr. Kaveh
    Farrokh, of the University of British Columbia in
    Vancouver, Canada. Dr. Farrokh himself is an norhern
    Iranian, also known as Iranian Azerbaijani.

    Continues Dr. Farrokh: “Geopolitics and petroleum
    diplomacy is using pan-Turkism to promote a nefarious
    and self-serving economic agenda. Pan-Turkic
    activists, supported by (economically and) politically
    motivated western academic outlets, are literally
    re-narrating world history. And in this quest, they
    have tragically misled many well intentioned but naïve
    individuals. Many believe in a series of facts, events
    and a past history that never was. Veracity is falling
    victim to racism, especially in the inherent
    anti-Persian agenda (that is) propelled by
    geopolitical petroleum diplomacy.”

    According to several well-informed Iranian experts,
    the majority of northern Iranians, also known as
    Iranian Azerbaijanis, when asked if they are from the
    Mongol-Turkic extract, their answer is a categorical

    Apparently, ultra-nationalist Turks have not yet given
    up on the ill-fated, and now-defunct Turkish

    Before they go any further, it would be wise to
    solicit the opinion of the former involuntary
    component Armenian, Arab, Assyrian, Kurdish, Greek,
    and Bulgarian nations of Ottoman Turkey and the uneasy
    neighbors of Iran, Georgia, and Russia.

    American Viewer Expects PBS to Present Historic Facts,
    Not Dosages of Lies, Distortions

    The nationwide protest Against the Armenian Genocide
    Panel Discussion on PBS, which evolved into a major
    national and international issue, continues to gain
    further momentum.

    In his commentary this week, Harut Sassounian, the
    Publisher of The California Courier, and long-time
    senior contributor to USA Armenian Life Magazine and
    many other news outlets worldwide, says: “Ms. Atlas
    owes an apology to the Armenian American community for
    providing a national platform to genocide deniers and
    stating that the Armenian Genocide is not ‘analogous’
    to the Holocaust. Should she fail to apologize and
    cancel the offensive panel questioning the Armenian
    Genocide, PBS management should then dismiss her from
    her position. American taxpayers should not pay the
    salary of someone who besmirches the memory of the
    victims of genocide and insults their descendants.”

    In the absence of an apology and a timely remedy, Ms.
    Atlas must be relieved of her responsibilities at PBS,
    for having had exhibited such an irresponsible
    executive behavior toward the American taxpayers. Not
    only is she insulting the Armenians worldwide, but she
    is also insulting the average American TV viewer’s
    intelligence. She is attempting to undermine the basic
    human right of each and every concerned viewer to be
    informed and not misinformed.

    In my opinion, American TV viewers, care less if the
    notoriously denialist Turkish government is disturbed
    by the dissemination of historic facts concerning any
    issue. The average viewer expects media members,
    including PBS, to disseminate accurate facts, and to
    not inject his mind with dosages of lies and


    On Sunday February 26, Archbishop Hovnan Derderian,
    the Primate of the Western Diocese of the Armenian
    Church, issued a statement saying: “It is our moral
    responsibility and duty as Armenians to not only sign
    the petition ourselves, but also inform our families
    and friends to also join in this appeal, for the
    memory of our forefathers who were martyred in 1915.”

    As of now, the petition link is easily accessible

        He is just Iranian, based on his previous posts. His main concern is the Pan-turkic policies of outside forces with regards to Iranian Azeris.

          The Iranians have a great nickname for the Turks ... they call them "Tork-e-Xhar" ... it translates to this.

            I bet the CIA is behind some of this. They probably think that they can turn the "Azeri" population of northern Iran into the same sort of 5th-columnist poodles for America that the Kurds in Iraq became.

                Azeris are Turks...Azeris call themselves Turks, they are a Turkish people, the Turks call them Turks.

                When the war started, we didnt even say Azeri, we just said Turks...I was confused back than cause I didn't know who exactly we were fighting.

                    The article is about immigrants. and please read it and what they did. Those are NOT usual immigrants of any kind. they are mostly agents. Those are "Grey wolf" fascists from republics of azerbaijan and Turkey. they go to Iran to cause trouble, not to make a living.
