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.

              Genocide Topic Refers Both Historians And Public: French Fm


              YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 3. ARMINFO. After the Year of Armenia in France
              is celebrated in April-November 2006, in 2007 France will mark the
              Year of Turkey, French Foreign Minister Phillip Doust-Blazy told his
              Turkish colleague Abdulah Gul in Ankara, writes The Hurriet.

              Asked about the Armenian Genocide of 1915 at a press conference after
              the meeting, the French foreign minister said the EU members have
              reached agreement and mutual understanding on this issue. It is time
              to raise and discuss in detail the coordinated topics, he said. Such
              topics refer not only historians but also the public, the foreign
              minister added. Phillip Doust-Blazy pointed out the importance of
              definite progress in Turkey in the issue of Armenian Genocide. He
              said the country supports the idea of further discussion of Genocide
              topic in the public. He noted that the law adopted in France in 2001
              displays the attitude of the French public to the tragedy of 1915.

                State of Ohio to pass Armenian Genocide resolution

                State of Ohio to pass Armenian Genocide resolution

                03.02.2006 15:57

                YEREVAN (YERKIR) - Todd Book, the deputy minority leader of the Ohio
                State Assembly, submitted a draft resolution to the State Assembly on
                February 1, which, if passed, designate April 24 the day of remembrance
                of the Armenian Genocide.

                "April 24 is declared the day of remembrance of the Armenian Genocide
                to mark the 1.5 million Armenians killed in the Ottoman Empire,"
                the resolution says.

                Speaking to Radio Liberty, Armenian National Committee of America
                representative Elizabeth Chouldjian said the text is very simple. The
                ANCA has sent appreciation letters to the Ohio State Assembly.

                "We are working towards encouraging 40,000-50,000 Armenians of Ohio
                to urge other lawmakers to vote in favor of the resolution," Doug
                Jorjarian, the ANCA Eastern Region director said.

                  Turkey Understood International Recognition Of Armenian Genocide Unstoppable


                  15.02.2006 12:31

                  YEREVAN (YERKIR) - Turkey convening several international conferences
                  on the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire evidences the country
                  finally understood the process of recognition of the Armenian Genocide
                  by parliaments of different countries, even those like Latvia, Poland,
                  Slovakia, where there the Armenian communities are not large, has
                  gathered speed, Director of Institute of History of the National
                  Academy of Sciences of Armenia, Doctor of Historical Science Ashot
                  Melkonyan told PanARMENIAN.Net correspondent. In his words, Armenian
                  scholars not participating in conferences on Armenian Genocide in
                  Turkey just convinces the parliaments of countries, which recognized
                  the Genocide that they were right.

                  "If we bring the matter to historical debate with Turks, we will
                  indirectly express distrust to states, which believed us. I want
                  to remind that the sadly known Armenian-Turkish Reconciliation
                  Commission, which existed from 2001 to 2003, suspended recognition of
                  the Genocide. As soon as it was disbanded, literally in 15 days the
                  Swiss Parliament acknowledged the Armenian Genocide," Melkonyan said.

                  Speaking of trials of journalists in Turkey, Ashot Melkonyan remarked
                  it may be inspired by Turkish authorities themselves. "Taner Akcam,
                  the Armenian press likes referring to, does what he is told by
                  Ankara. It is like a pilot balloon and at the same time a curtsey
                  towards Europe, aimed to show Turkey takes the way of democratic
                  development and it has freedom of speech. In actual fact everything
                  can turn out quite the contrary," Melkonyan emphasized. In his words,
                  Turkey choosing the way of canceling the "taboo" of the Armenian
                  issue means nothing. "Turkey just tangles cards in Europe," he said.

                    Serbia denies Mladic arrested

                    Originally posted by Hovik
                    Notice the number of vicims in this genocidal event... goes to show that numbers mean little when considering whether or not an event was Genocide... keep that in mind Turkey... you can argue whether it was 1.5 million, 1.2 million, 1 million and so on until you're blue in the face, it won't change anything...
                    Serbia denies Mladic arrested

                    The Serbian government on Tuesday denied media reports that top Bosnian Serb war crimes fugitive Gen. Ratko Mladic had been arrested, but Bosnian and Serbian sources said he was in custody in Bosnia.

                    "The news about Ratko Mladic is not correct," government spokesman Srdjan Djuric said. "It is a manipulation which damages the (Serbian) government."

                    Djuric was speaking to Reuters by telephone. No official statement was issued.

                    Independent Belgrade broadcaster B92 said that in spite of Djuric's denial, a number of sources had told its reporters that the 63-year old general was arrested in Serbia then transferred to Tuzla in northeastern Bosnia for a flight to The Hague.

                    This was the route used to take former Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic to The Hague when he was extradited in 2001 and flown from Belgrade via the U.S. military base Camp Eagle near Tuzla to the Netherlands.

                    Morning newspapers on Tuesday speculated that Belgrade would spirit Mladic into Bosnia after his arrest in order to counter charges by the Hague war crimes tribunal that he had been hiding in Serbia for years with government knowledge and army help.

                    In the afternoon, Serbia's state news agency Tanjug and the main Bosnian Serb agency SRNA said the wartime Bosnian Serb Army commander had been arrested in Belgrade then taken to Tuzla.

                    TWO COUNTS OF GENOCIDE

                    Mladic was indicted in 1995 for genocide for the 43-month siege of Sarajevo which claimed 12,000 lives and for orchestrating the 1995 massacre of some 8,000 Muslims at Srebrenica, the worst atrocity in Europe since World War Two.

                    His political boss Radovan Karadzic, indicted on the same charges, is still at large.

                    Serbian newspapers have been saying for days that Mladic would be on a plane to The Hague before the end of February, in time to avert suspension of European Union association talks with Belgrade, which would deal a body blow to the government.

                    The end of February is the deadline for a report by EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn to the EU assessing whether Serbia is cooperating fully with the U.N. tribunal.

                    Florence Hartmann, spokeswoman for the U.N. war crimes prosecutor, said they had no information on the reported arrest. "These are rumors, we cannot comment on something that doesn't exist," she said.

                    Without confirming the newspaper reports of an imminent arrest, Vladeta Jankovic, adviser to Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica, said efforts to find Mladic were "in full swing."

                    "The government is aware of the consequences," he told B92 radio. "It might be a decisive moment, not only for the survival of the government, but for the future prospects of the state," he said. Mladic's handover was "almost a condition of survival."

                    Belgrade is desperate to avoid suspension of Stabilization and Association pact talks begun last year. They are the first step to eventual EU membership -- Serbia's top priority -- and Brussels has warned they will stop if Mladic is not arrested.

                    Reports predicting his imminent arrest or detailing official efforts to track him down intensify each time Serbia faces a Western deadline for action, although Serbia constantly protests that it has no evidence he is even in the country.

                    Mladic lived openly in Belgrade until the fall of nationalist strongman Slobodan Milosevic in 2000 undermined his support. Hague chief prosecutor Carla Del Ponte has repeatedly charged that he is still protected by hardliners in the Army and security agencies of Serbia.

                    Serbian Human Rights Minister Rasim Ljajic said it would be a good time to extradite Mladic, who is still regarded as a hero-soldier by staunch nationalists opposed to his arrest.

                    "The latest polls show 57 percent of citizens are in favor of this option," he said.

                      Alevis are called as Gavur?
                      Did you ever hear it said to yourself Rudo?

                      May be it is because some of the alevis are fierce left-wingers like TIKKO type anarchists. Thats not because they are alevis but because they are extreme-left wingers.
