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.

    If anyone is afraid and insecure it's the Turks. None of these various Armenian genocide resolutions would be necessary. If the Turks for once did the right thing and came clean, in regards to the Turkish states involvement in past events. Rather than constantly seeking to suppress and evade it's responsibilities.

    I agree. While the individual european may be a p*ssy, the nations themselves, such as the french, germans and brits, have powerful economies and militaries in comparison to turkey. The weak have no friends, so why sacrifice your interests for them?
    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.

      Well the reality is that islamists in Europe (which are usually Turkish or North African in origin) can complain, set cars on fire and cause disorder but as long as the military in Europe remains strong they are no real threat; there is no contest against tanks and a strong military. The worst of it though is that the government just sits back and takes no actions against extremists (their favourite targets being Christians, xxxs and Armenian's). If that kinda stuff happened in New Zealand or Australia, they would be put in prison or deported; in Europe it seems to be acceptable for such violence and chaos (such as infamous 'God Bless Hitler', 'Kill the infidel' rallies in the UK).

        The fact that Le Pen is polling 20% of the vote in France is not exactly indicative of a healthy, harmonious society. However the Western Europeans, need not take up arms in order to implement reforms.

        The Turks are a wild bunch and certainly not a people to be trusted. However they more reasonable and agreeable, than most other Sunni Muslims. Who for the most part are hypocrites and inadequates. Islam is a retrogressive religion, that is incapable of producing anything other, than a primitive feudal society. Even Atatürk realised as much.

        The Americans trust the Turks, as they have little to lose by doing so and are fearful of European econmic dominance.

          Re: Recognition of Armenian Genocide by the world’s parliaments.

          Could our natural alliances be shifting? Are the Muslim Bosnians going to recognize the Armenian Genocide before our so-called "Orthodox brothers" the Serbs do?

          Bosnia-Herzegovina MP Says Genocide Resolution Will Pass
          [ 2010/04/15 | 13:26 ] world

          Drago Kalabic, head of the SNSD (Alliance of Independent Social Democrats) faction in the Bosnia-Herzegovina parliament’s House of Representatives has said that the law banning the burqa and the resolution condemning the genocide of Armenians committed by Turkey (Ottoman Empire), would be adopted by the [Bosnian] Serb Republic People’s Assembly if the Bosniaks [Muslims] fail to support it in the Bosnia-Herzegovina parliament.

          The proposed resolution reads: “By recognizing the Armenian Genocide, Bosnia and Herzegovina will pay homage to the victims, pay respect to the survivors and their posterity, and will contribute to the prevention of future crimes against humanity…By adopting this resolution, Bosnia and Herzegovina wants to contribute to the establishment of lasting peace between Turks and Armenians” and asks Bosnian diplomatic representatives to acknowledge, through regular diplomatic channels, that a genocide has been committed against the Armenians.

          “Many countries have already adopted a resolution on Turkish crimes. We want to prove that the Bosniak side is most flagrantly abusing the victims of Srebrenica, and to call things by their proper names. Turkey wants to be an important political factor, so let’s see how this country has dealt with its history,” Kalabic told the press.

          He said that the situation was the same with the burqa. Kalabic recalled that many European countries had banned the veil for security reasons.

          “Their security agencies say that they cannot wage a proper struggle against terrorism if they cannot identify an individual at any given moment. If Turkey has banned the burqa, why should Bosnia-Hercegovina not do the same?” Kalabic concluded.

              Well anti-immigration exists regardless everywhere, but people should come to realise that religious tolerance can only go so far because at some point it breaks human rights, and people who break human rights must be punished or you end up with 'secular' Turkey. I am wondering what world people like Gordon Brown live in? You can't have it both ways, you either divide the nations up into religious theocracies (to allow total religious freedom) or you force Muslims to restrict their religion to the same extent Christianity and other religions are restricted e.g. no stoning, murder, killing of homosexuals or honour killings. No society should put religion as more important than human rights, even if that means limiting freedom of religion in favour of the rights of women, homosexuals and minorities.

                No, what they're saying is that if the national assembly in Sarajevo does not condemn it, i.e. for all of Bosnia (presumably because the Muslims identify with Turks), then the lower level Bosnian Serb People's Assembly, which represents just the Serbs and the Serb half of Bosnia, will go ahead and make the resolution on their own, without the "approval" of Muslims and Croats.

                Also, Kalabic points out the hypocrisy of calling the Srebrenica massacre (in which allegedly 8000 Muslim military-age men were massacred) a genocide but refusing to do the same for Turkish atrocities against Armenians.
