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.

    Muslim academic recognizes Armenian Genocide

    12:16 / 01/04/2010

    For the first time in history of the Armenians, an internationally renowned Muslim academic, professor of Islamic studies in UK, Switzerland, Japan, U.S, Tariq Ramadan has publicly recognized the Armenian Genocide. Tariq Ramadan has granted an exclusive interview to “Nouvelles d'Arménie Magazine”, first monthly magazine of the Armenian community in France.

    In answering a question from Ara Toranian (editor): Do you recognize the Armenian Genocide? Ramadan said: “I know and recognize. For me, the historical reality of Armenian genocide has not ever made the shadow of a doubt we can […] not deny the reality of what was actually and historically genocide.” As regards the Genocide denial, he said: “It is against the principles of my religion and against the principles of human consciousness. We can not deny the events.”

    Tariq Ramadan condamne la négation du génocide des Arméniens

    lundi4 janvier 2010, par Ara/armenews

    Dans cette interview exclusive accordée à Nouvelles d’Arménie Magazine, Tariq Ramadan,l’un des intellectuels musulmans les plus brillants et les plus écoutés, reconnait le génocide des Arméniens, condamne sa dénégation et appelle les autorités religieuses et politiques du monde islamique à œuvrer en faveur de la réconciliation arméno-Turque.

    Nouvelles d’Arménie Magazine : Connaissez-vous et reconnaissez vous le génocide des Arméniens ?
    Tariq Ramadan : Je le connais et le reconnais. Pour moi, la réalité historique du génocide arménien n’a jamais fait l’ombre d’un doute. Et il me semble à ce propos, qu’en Turquie même, les choses commencent tout doucement à évoluer. Si on en n’est pas encore au stade de la reconnaissance par l’autorité actuelle, et on y était encore moins par la précédente, on constate une certaine évolution de la pensée formulée par Ahmet Davutoglu, ministre turc des Affaires étrangères qui fait un peu avancer le dossier. Je pense que de plus en plus de forces en Turquie aimeraient dépasser ce clivage et entamer une vraie réconciliation. Je me situerais dans cette perspective.


    NAM : Avez-vous eu l’occasion de rencontrer les dirigeants turcs actuels ?
    T. R. : J’en connais beaucoup.

    NAM : Comment appréciez-vous leur islamisme, dit modéré ?
    T. R. : Si on considère les personnes, au premier rang desquelles Tayyip Erdogan, on s’aperçoit qu’elles ont énormément évolué au cours des vingt dernières années. Et des analystes estiment même qu’elles ne sont plus islamistes. Il me semble quant à moi que la référence islamique reste pour elles extrêmement importante. Il faut tenir compte des pressions liées à l’histoire même de la Turquie et au fait que l’armée pèse toujours fortement dans le jeu politique. Je pense que dans leur reconsidération, dans leur réévaluation des priorités, des choses très intéressantes demeurent, comme la volonté d’aller vers l’Etat de droit ou de lutter contre la corruption. Leur position par rapport à l’Europe, leur volonté d’être jugé sur les principes et non pas sur le caractère majoritairement islamique de leur société est une bonne chose. Maintenant, espérons que les changements se dérouleront de façon plus rapide et plus transparente.
    Leur tâche me paraît cependant compliquée compte tenu des contraintes auxquelles ce pays doit faire face dans ses relations internationales, les rapports avec les Etats-Unis, les tensions avec Israël, les liens avec le monde majoritairement musulman, et ce, sans compter les difficultés dans les négociations avec l’Europe.

    NAM : En tant que musulman, comment vous situez-vous par rapport au négationnisme. Ce mode de pensée vous gêne-t-il, vous heurte-t-il ?
    Comprenez-vous cette position des dirigeants de l’Etat turc à l’égard de ce crime ? Trouvez-vous tolérable qu’ils aient entretenu leur propre peuple dans l’ignorance et le déni ?
    T. R. : Je pense tout d’abord que toute attitude qui consiste à nier les faits historiques, est inacceptable et contre productive. Je me montre toujours très attentif aux termes que l’on emploie. Le négationnisme est extrêmement connoté, mais ce que vous venez de décrire, à savoir des dirigeants qui persistent à refuser la réalité historique, à nier un massacre, un génocide est problématique.
    Encore une fois, clore le débat n’est pas dans mes habitudes. Mais une chose est de dire « le débat sur l’histoire doit être ouvert », et une autre d’affirmer que des faits pourtant avérés n’ont pas existé. Discuter des responsabilités, des causes, est une chose, mais on ne peut pas nier la réalité de ce qu’a été effectivement et historiquement ce génocide.

    NAM : Cette dénégation du génocide arménien va-t-elle à l’encontre des principes de votre religion ?
    T. R. : La dénégation de faits historiquement avérés est contraire à l’honnêteté intellectuelle exigée par toutes les religions. La dénégation est contre les principes de ma religion et contre les principes de la conscience humaine. On ne peut pas nier les événements. J’ai entendu un certain nombre de dirigeants turcs...

      Iran bans translation of a book about Armenian genocide

      15:54 - 17.07.10


      The Iranian government has banned the translation of a book about the
      Armenian Genocide into Persian and its distribution in the country,
      Saeed Firouzabadi, who translated the book from German into Persian,
      said.

      "I translated a book by German writer Jacob Kunzler In the Land of
      Tears and Blood and asked for permission to publish it in the printing
      house Nair. But waiting more than a year, I failed to get permission
      and the publication of this book was banned," ISNA news agency quoted
      Firouzabadi as saying.

      The book covers the murders of Armenians in Turkey during the First World War.

      Firouzabadi is a professor of Islamic University 'Azad'.

      In order to publish books in Iran an official permission is necessary
      to obtain from the relevant department of the Ministry of Culture and
      Islamic Guidance.

          hrm... what to believe?

          Azerbaijani political scientist: Book on so-called "Armenian genocide" will be translated into Persian in Iran


          Statements by the Iranian press that the book on so-called "Armenian genocide" will not be translated into Persian in Tehran do not have any bases, chairman of the Center for Political Innovation and Technology of Azerbaijan, a political scientist Mubariz Ahmedoglu, told Trend on July 19.

          "A book by professor at Clark University in the U.S. Taner Akcam "Shameful actions" that propagates and tries to prove the so-called "Armenian genocide" was translated from English and presented in Iran. The presentation, held at the Armenian diocese in Tehran, was attended by the author, translator, and professors at Tehran University, some public and political figures," said Ahmedoglu.

          The head of the center said that the majority of event participants and organizers of the translation are not Armenians.

          "Important events for the Armenians are always marked in Tehran. Simply, upon the decision of official Tehran, such events are conducted 10-15 days later. This year, the Armenians marked the 95th anniversary of the so-called "Armenian genocide" and 18th year of "victory" in Shusha on May 24. Most of the participants in these events are not the Armenians. Official Tehran, changing the time of the events and celebrations of Armenians, takes an indefinite position. Trying to distract us from our sense of its official position, in fact, Tehran is always close to the Armenians. Iran is the second state after Armenia in the economy of Nagorno-Karabakh," said Ahmedoglu.
