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.

            /PanARMENIAN.Net/ At the time when debates are continuing in U.S. Congress over Armenian Genocide resolution, ”>"The World Almanac and Book of Facts” included Turkey in the list of countries, which are responsible for genocide. Independent French journalist Jean Eckian told the PanARMENIAN.Net journalist the 2007 edition mentions that mass killings of Armenian at the beginning of 20th century in Ottoman Empire is a “genocide”, a crime that Turkey himself categorically denies. The annual almanac mentioned Turkey in the “Crime and Terrorist activities; Genocide” section. The almanac noted that the term “genocide” was first used by Dr. Raphael Lemkin in 1944 and gives the definition of the word. The almanac continued with the following statements, “The year: 1915, the event: Armenians being destroyed by Young Turks, the location: Turkey, the Ottoman Empire, estimated deaths: some 1 million.”

              Israel doesn't recognize Armenian Genocide over good relations with Turkey

              19.03.2007 17:41 GMT+04:00

              /PanARMENIAN.Net/ “The fact that Israel hasn’t recognized the Armenian Genocide at the legislative level doesn’t imply denial of this historical event or indifference to it,” member of the Israeli Labor Party, chairperson of the Israeli Women’s Movement Nurit Levi told a news conference in Yerevan. She said good diplomatic relations with Turkey keeps Israel back from passing a law on the Armenian Genocide.

              Israeli women may play a substantial role in the issue and we will do our best. We also have a big Diaspora and we understand how hard it is to live away from homeland. Our people survived the Holocaust and we do feel your tragedy,” she said, reports Novosti Armenia.

              March 14 the Knesset has voted down the resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide. 27 MPs were present in the sitting hall during the voting. Thus, only 12 out of 120 parliamentarians supported the resolution which was put on the agenda by the initiative of Merez party. The author of the resolution is Menahem Auron, the brother of well-known specialist on the Genocide and Holocaust Yair Auron.

                Canadian lawmakers remember 'Armenian genocide'

                Canadian lawmakers remember 'Armenian genocide'

                Tue Apr 24, 4:24 PM ET



                Canadian parliamentarians stood in silence for one minute Tuesday to recognize the "Armenian genocide" during World War I, a sensitive issue that hurt Canadian relations with Turkey last year.

                A spokeswoman for Speaker of the House Peter Milliken told AFP the Conservative government's House leader and his counterparts from all three opposition parties agreed to the official commemoration.

                Turkey said in April 2006 it was "appalled" by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper's reference to the bloodbath as the first genocide of the 20th century, and temporarily recalled its ambassador to Ottawa in protest.

                Ankara said then Harper's comments gave support to Armenia's "unfounded allegations of genocide" and that his position on the issue would "negatively affect ties between Turkey and Canada."

                Armenians say up to 1.5 million of their kinsmen were slaughtered in an orchestrated genocide in the final years of the Ottoman Empire.

                Turkey categorically rejects claims of genocide, arguing that 300,000 Armenians and at least as many Turks died in civil strife when Armenians began fighting for independence in eastern Anatolia and sided with Russian troops invading the crumbling Ottoman Empire.

                  Leaders Gather to Mark Armenian Genocide Day

                  Leaders Gather to Mark Armenian Genocide Day

                  Turkey Rejects the Genocide Label

                  LOS ANGELES, Apr. 24, 2007 - (CNS) - Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the Los Angeles City Council and Armenian leaders gathered Tuesday to commemorate the 92nd anniversary of the Armenian genocide, which resulted in the deaths of 1.5 million people in 1915.

                  "Today's remembrance ... will not only keep us all united in our remembrance of the 1.5 million lost souls, it will also help us teach the new generation to prevent injustice and intolerance and will renew our respect for all of humanity," said Archbishop Honvan Derderian, primate of the Western Diocese of the Armenian Church.

                  Turkey rejects the genocide label and argues that about 300,000 Armenians, and at least as many Turks, died during civil strife in 1915.

                  The deaths occurred when Armenians in eastern Anatolia fought for independence and sided with Russian troops invading the crumbling Ottoman Empire during World War I.

                  "It is important that the next generation of truth tellers is here with us today," Villaraigosa said. "Denial of the genocide is an attempt to instill fear in the hearts of all those who treasure truth. The first condition of justice is recognition of the gravity of the evil done."

                  Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, introduced a resolution in January, asking President Bush to recognize the killings.

                  In February, the City Council designated the Armenian capital of Yerevan as a sister city to Los Angeles, under a plan spearheaded by Councilman Eric Garcetti.

                  "Today it may feel long ago, but to think of the 3,000 years of culture and history ... that (the Armenian genocide) tried to wipe from the earth makes us realize that it is part of our present," Garcetti said.

                    Turkish human rights activists urge to apologize in front of the Armenian nation


                    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ “All those who are aware of the annihilations of Armenians in 1915, do not keep silence, all those who do not want to call a spade a spade, must know that we present thousands of apologies to the Armenian nation,” says the statement of the Human Rights Protection Office, which was published in Evrinsel, Birgun and Gundem newspapers April 24. 5 office staff members, including head of Istanbul branch Hyuriet Şener undersigned the statement. She said, in the 21st century too illigal actions are taking place in Turkey, say murder of Hrant Dink or latest events in Malatia.

                    “Those in Turkey who do not want to call a spade a spade the events of 1915, must know that thousands of apologies are necessary in front of the Armenian nation. Turkey must face its history in order to create an open society,” Şener underscored, Armenian Public TV reported.

                      Basque Parliament recognizes Armenian Genocide
                      12.05.2007 17:49 GMT+04:00 Print version Send to mail In Russian In Armenian

                      /PanARMENIAN.Net/ During a plenary meeting the Basque Parliament on April 20, 2007 approved an institutional declaration on the 92nd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, independent French journalist Jean Eckian told PanARMENIAN.Net.

                      The text says: "The first genocide scientifically planned, organized and carried out in the history of humanity, was perpetrated by the Young Turks and ideology of the Pan-Turkism against the Armenian people, which generated the murder of almost two million people. Crimes of this nature must be denounced to prevent their repetition. Human and national rights should be restored culprits should be condemned. This genocide must deserve the sanction of the Basque people and all the people of the world.

                      Basque people and institutions rejected ethnic, religious or political discrimination, and this Parliament always denounced all the acts of genocide, by considering that the walk of time does not imply the lack of memory. The denunciations of the genocides by our Parliament like those of Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraki Kurdistan and the Ukrainian artificial famine of 1932-33, etc, are clear examples.

                      By this institutional declaration, the Parliament unifies its voice with those of the other institutions and Parliaments like European Parliament, Council of Europe and multitude of official and regional Parliaments, as well as the international institutions and humanitarians who denounced these facts.”

                      The Basque Parliament included 6 articles in which it affirms the authentic character of the Armenian Genocide; denounces Turkey’s systematic negationism and rejects the frontier and economic blockade imposed on Armenia. Moreover, the Parliament, under the signature of the president, Izaskun Bilbao Barandica, declares sympathy to the Armenian people, and supports their efforts to consolidate its democratic process and to affirm in the Caucasus area a stable space of cooperation and freedom.
