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.

    Re: Knesset moves toward recognizing Armenian genocide

    Dear Users,

    I have in fact huge trouble to understand, why a nation, who shares the same even more worse "destiny" like we armenians, have still graet problems to recognize the armenian genocide.

    Please can one of you explain me, why the juwXXX policy is so dishonest and spoilt.
    Turks are very proud until now, that they brutal slaughtered at 1915-17 almost 3 000 000 christians in the otoman empire.

      Before we try to understand another nation we need to understand ourselves.

      Can we explain why Armenians even dream, hope and get excited such a thing will happen
      considering the level of friendship and cooperation that exists with Turkey and Azerbaijan.

      The number of time they used the Armenian Genocide as a political weapon, a tool to their advantage.
      Any nation with dignity would have stood back and said, would I trust these guy and go through that again.
      Certainly an ignorant (տգետ) layer of our nation consistently live in that dream and hope.
      To even think that after all these machinations they “do recognise”, the cynics would ask .... why now? And is that a political gain.

      The weapons Israel sells to Azerbaijan ( and Turkey) some of the most modern to do what, to kill who? ..... Armenians.
      Yet we as a little lapdogs get all excited and pontificate about morality, similarity with them and any other bollocks that we can take hold of.

      Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
      Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
      Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

        I hate that the Genocide issue has become now purely political. Its become an anti-Turkish tool, of course at least publicity is spread...

        Turkish press discusses Israel’s possible recognition of Armenian Genocide

        Turkey’s attitude towards Israel provoked certain steps in the parliament regarding recognition of the Armenian Genocide, writes Turkish Haberturk newspaper.

        The newspaper recalls words of Israeli MP Arie Eldad who said Turkey will get a response for deporting Israeli diplomats.

        Once the parliamentary hearings start, the Armenian Genocide bill will be included in the agenda, Eldad said.

        Information has been recently spread by almost all media outlets which claim the Armenian Diaspora hopes that Israel will recognize the Armenian Genocide in response to Turkey’s attitude.

          I hate it too, that it become political, but it is a good news, that our Genocide issue moves toward recognizing.

            Haaretz article urges Turkey to acknowledge Armenian Genocide

            13:49 - 16.10.11



            Emanuele Ottolenghi, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of
            Democracies, in a piece posted on the leading Israeli newspaper
            Haaretz Web site on Friday, says that Turkey should acknowledge the
            Armenian Genocide.

            `Turkey continues to practice state-sanctioned genocide denial and
            prosecutes those who dare challenge it. Isn't it time, 90-something
            years after the Ottoman Empire eliminated as many as 1.5 million
            Armenians that Mr. Erdogan's `mildly Islamist' party, as The Economist
            leniently defines it, acknowledges Turkey's dark past and apologizes
            on behalf of its country's crimes?' asks Ottolenghi.

            `Not to belabor the point, but the list of things Turkey should
            apologize for is long. It continues to illegally occupy Northern
            Cyprus, the territory of a European Union member, after having
            conquered the land through an act of aggression that ended in ethnic
            cleansing and illegal settlements,' wrote he.

            `No apology there so far - in fact, Turkey has just threatened to
            freeze ties with the EU if Cyprus receives the Union's rotating
            presidency next year, as it is supposed to. Meanwhile, Mr. Erdogan is
            directing his gunboat diplomacy threats at Cyprus as well - as if
            occupation, ethnic cleansing and the creation of a fictitiously
            independent republic in the northern part of the island were not
            enough,' adds Ottolenghi.

            `Moral of the story: If you behave like a bull, you should not live in
            a china shop. And if you live in a glass house, think twice before you
            throw stones at your neighbors. Mr. Erdogan wants an apology? How
            about starting with one?' concludes the author.
