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.

    Not entirely true. The Kurds have been squatting on Armenian lands and Armenians held deeds to those lands and the loss of land is merely a century old (Armenians didn't leave the territory, they were murdered, slaughtered and driven out of their lands). Legally, Armenians are entitled to that land. Politically and militarily, Armenians don't have the power to enforce laws on what is rightfully theirs. I agree in majority of Turkish held towns, cities and villages... it will take force to liberate the lands since those areas are likely economically valuable to Turks.

    Anyways.... getting off topic.

      That's like saying "let's not try to catch people who rob banks because in some time in the far distant future, when I get my gang together and devise a cunning and foolproof plan (even though at the moment I don't know any would-be bank robbers and have no idea how to rob banks), I hope to successfully rob this one particular bank that swindled me out of all my money"

            A few random Armenians mixing with Persians doesn't mean anything, and as I've said Armenians tend to be very insular. What you want to say with that example? I know you are trying to pull Armenians and Armenia into the Persian sphere, but you can do all you want, our culture and nation doesn't belong in it, regardless of how much a Persian nationalist who advocates 'Greater Iran' wants it to. We are on our independent course and we don't fall under anybody's greater territory or nation.

              Israel's Government has thrown its weight behind efforts by supporters to counter what it believes to be negative bias and a tide of pro-Arab propaganda. The Foreign Ministry has ordered trainee diplomats to track websites and chatrooms so that networks of US and European groups with hundreds of thousands of xxxish activists can place supportive messages.

              In the past week nearly 5,000 members of the World Union of xxxish Students (WUJS) have downloaded special “megaphone” software that alerts them to anti-Israeli chatrooms or internet polls to enable them to post contrary viewpoints. A student team in Jerusalem combs the web in a host of different languages to flag the sites so that those who have signed up can influence an opinion survey or the course of a debate.


              I believe the recent increase in pro-israeli views on this forum may have something to do with the above.
              For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
              to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

                Comparing the Armenian case to the jooish one is idiotic. Armenians lived in 'eastern turkey', and some still do secretly, up until 96 years ago. The joos had not been in their 'land' for almost 2000 years! And most of today's joos have little blood connection to the ancient hebrews whom they claim descent from. Is this too difficult for you to grasp or are you an zionist/israeli agent sent here to stir up s*it, cause that's all you seem to do here.

                    By your own admission you've never been to Iran: How would you know what was "random" in Iran or not; what % of the population in your mind has to intermarry before it's no longer random; and what studies are you relying on?

                    More important, while I respect Eddo, the truth matters.

                    Yes, Iranian-Armenians (the ones that existed for centuries) tended to intermarry with other Iranians (including from a time predating Christianity and Islam and up to the present date); they were "insular" in the sense that they did not intermarry with Russians or other people from the Soviet Republics. In that sense Iranian-Armenians were "insular" and un-Russified for centuries.

                    Iranian-Armenian Women:


                    On the other hand, at the start of the 19th Century, Armenia-SSR started becoming a mixed both genetically and culturally (assimilated) - which moved the tiny population in Yerevan further and further away the original Armenian culture and gene pool.

                    Quotes like yours below are contrary to what people have seen with the own eyes as women are trafficked into parts of Russia and Dubai from Yerevan.

                    G-Rated Photo of some of the "Insular" propensities Armenians Fostered in Yerevan and Armenia-SSR:



                    This above-type of assimilation and behavior is encouraged in Yerevan as thousands of Armenian women are trafficked to other countries to this day - some of which is encouraged by corrupt police officers with ties to the Russian mob. I promise you that Iran discourages Iranian-Armenians from assimilating in this manner; while prostitution is a problem everywhere, Iran hangs people that traffick in women and girls, and particularly shields Iranian-Armenian women from it in ways that Yerevan doesn't.

                    When my blog is posted, I will also take you through the number of pogroms and rapes against the tiny Armenian population in Armenia-SSR and the effects, both genetically and culturally, and give Armenians a factually accurate portrayal of assimilation in Armenia-SSR. Iranian-Armenian women are discouraged from activities prevalent in Yerevan.

                    WARNING NOT FOR THE WEAK-HEARTED - (Sex Trafficking of Armenian Women and Girls from Yerevan) :

                    "There have been women from Armenia in the United Arab Emirates ever since the early 1990's, when flights started between Yerevan and Dubai. ... "For the past two years, dealers in the sex trade have been transporting women under 31 to Dubai through Russia , mainly through Moscow and Krasnodar . There, they are given false passports, which state their age as over 31." (See U.N. Sub-Com. Report on Children’s Trafficking in Armenia.)

                    And I agree with you that you are "not very religious" though you pretend to be in your public posts to try to distract people from the issues.

                    So, if "the Armenian Church is the most important part of Armenian identity," according to you, and if you are "not very religious," according to you, you're not very Armenian according to your own standards.

                    Buyer Beware:

                    Moses, while trafficking women and girls for porn and prostitution is a problem in every country, let me remind you how a Persian will deal with anyone that does that to OUR Persian-Armenian women.

                    I would also ask Armenians to pay particular attention to people like Mos that attempt to pretend to be against assimilation while privately pushing the opposite agenda; and to beware of those who publicly pretend to be religious while pushing another agenda; and who spend their time online attempting to discredit the shared family-ties of people.

                    • Re: Iranian-Armenian relations

                      First off, let me remind you, who PM-d me first:

                      Why don't you ask me for advice for meeting a nice ParsKaHye girl?

                      Mos, when is a good time period to stop quoting you?

                      Visit me on youtube to meet other Armenians also:

                      www.youtube.com/IranHistory
                      Second, while I do like Persian women and the culture, marrying them is unrealistic and I wouldn't do that. The reason I have asked that, is that I've been curious on how Muslim women go about marrying non-Muslim men, not from a personal romantic curiosity but from a cultural one, as I was curious in that aspect of the culture.

                      Third, for argument's sake, even if I married a Perisan or non-Armenian women, me being the father, I would force Armenian identity on the children, in essence assimilation would never be a problem if that is what you're asking, since I am well aware of those dangers and would do anything to prevent it, and best way to do so is to marry within your group.

                      Fourth, You don't understand the religious culture of Armenians very well. Yes, Armenian Church is crucial to Armenian identity, but that doesn't equal being religious in terms of praying several times a day. What I mean by holding that Church identity, is being aware and respectful of the ceremonies and holidays, attending Church during important holidays, and identifying your self as part of Armenian church. Again, there are many Armenians, especially in the Republic, that aren't that religious but still are respectful of the church and recognise its importance to Armenian history and identity.

                      Fifth, yes Armenians are an insular group, this is a cultural fact about us. That being said, throughout history, we have intermarried with our neighbours, that's only natural. We have for example intermarried with Georgians a lot. Iranian-Armenian intermarriage decreased heavily with the religious differences, you cannot deny that, of course there were case after that division, but much less than before. And before that we are talking about a long, long time ago. And yes, for Parskahyes, it's more expected for intermarriage to happen because they are living with Persians all around!

                      Sixth, I really don't know what you are trying to prove with the sex trafficking. Yes it's unfortunate that is goes on, but how the hell does that mean Armenians are intermixing? It's just some prostitutes that are forced to work, it's not like they are having families with these people. You know. Of course, this is a sad reality for several poor ex-Soviet nations.

                      Seventh, I have never pushed an "opposite" agenda. Cultural assimilation, yes, is dangerous for Armenians. Intermixing is only dangerous when the the Armenian cultural component is lost as a result. There have been intermixed families that did a lot of good to the Armenian nation. So you can't generalise. The one who is trying to seemingly push an Iranian agenda on us is you, by pointing out to some Parskahyes who married Iranians, or that some armenian unsurprisingly mixed with iranians during the first centuries AD, you are trying to push the Armenian nation to be under some "Greater Iran" label, which is just ridiculous. Did you read that genetics article regarding Armenians that I posted? Rather than speculate on what families intermarried thousands of years ago, that article holds all the truths, as science is the most reliable witness here. And last, stop using Parskahyes to represent the Armenians of the world, or to represent the "real Armenians" while Armenians from SSR are not worthy of that title, or are inferior to Parskahyes because they aren't close to Iranians like Parskahyes are. The group of Armenians you should be comparing to is the Armenians of Armenia, because they have lived in an Armenian society with Armenian people, not in a foreign land or foreign society, and thus they are the ones to be compared to.
