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.

  • Europe not that bad afterall?

    As some of you may know i have a negative opinion of how Europe had and continues to handle the Armenian Genocide. Here is some new work putting europeans in a better light. I wonder what you guys know of this work?


    PRESENTATION OF KATIA PELTEKIAN'S BOOK "THE TIMES OF THE GENOCIDE" IN BEIRUT

    http://www.horizonweekly.ca/news/details/30708
    February 3, 2014

    Under the auspices of the Armenian Genocide Centenary Central
    Committee (AGCCC) of Lebanon, the Hamazkayin Vahe Sethian Publishing
    House organized an evening on January 31, 2014 to present the newly
    published two-volume book, "The Times of the Armenian Genocide:
    Reports in the British Press (1914-1923)" by Katia M. Peltekian.

    The event was attended by distinguished guests that included the
    Ambassadors of Armenia, the Vatican, the Argentine, Uruguay and
    Russia, as well as the Primate of Lebanon, Bishop Panossian, clergy,
    and representatives from the Armenian community and organizations.

    Mr. Missak Terzian, representing the Hamazkayin Printing House and
    the Lucy Tutunjian Art Gallery, opened the event by welcoming the
    audience in both Armenian & English. Presenting the author, he said,
    "What Katia Peltekian has accomplished is an academic research that she
    uniquely contributes to study of the Armenian Genocide." He introduced
    Peltekian, who is a graduate of the American University of Beirut
    (Lebanon) & Dalhousie University (Canada), and has taught English at
    AUB & Haigazian Universities. Terzian also hoped that "this two-volume
    work by Peltekian will become beneficial and a stimulus for the friends
    of the Armenian people in their pursuit of justice and human rights

    Katia Peltekian then spoke and briefly introduced her book, admitting
    that the work was the result of 12 years of research which she had
    begun as an amateur in history. Speaking in English, she stated that
    the general impression that most Armenians had was that Europe did not
    help the Armenian people during their suffering; however, in reality,
    she stressed the fact that Europe, and in this case Britain (the
    focus of the book) did put some effort to help the Armenians, thanks
    to a kind of lobbying in the parliament by Lord James Bryce and a few
    other members of the Parliament; it is noteworthy, she said, that the
    Armenian massacres, deportations, refugees and future were discussed
    and debated in the British Parliament over 70 times during the 10
    years that the book covers. Peltekian also conveyed her heartfelt
    gratitude to the organizers and supporters of the evening's event.

    Mrs. Anita Libiar then spoke in English on behalf of the AGCCC
    of Lebanon and greeted Katia Peltekian's work, emphasizing its
    message and goals. Libiar referred to Peltekian's book that compiles
    archival material from Britain, putting under the spotlight the public
    and official reaction of Britain towards the ongoing massacres and
    events as they occurred. Libiar then thanked Peltekian for her work,
    commending her highly.

    Finally, the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the
    Republic of Armenia Ashot Kocharyan, speaking in both Armenian &
    English, stressed the importance of Katia Peltekian's work. "99 years
    after the Genocide, this valuable book again confirms the undeniable
    fact of the Genocide," said Amb. Kocharyan. He added that despite all
    the evidence, Turkey still denies that a Genocide happened against the
    Armenians. He said, "On May 24, 1915, three states - Britain, Russia
    and France - jointly sent Turkey a warning to halt the massacres not
    only because it was perpetrated against the Armenians, but because
    it was against humanity." Amb. Kocharyan also restated the President
    of the Republic of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan's position: "We, as a state
    and a nation, in all corners of the world, will continue our struggle,
    to fight against injustice, apathy and silence." Amb. Kocharyan then
    praised the AGCCC of Lebanon and wished them solidarity and success.

    The Ambassador ended his speech by wishing Katia Peltekian further
    success in future endeavors.

    It is to be noted that Katia Peltekian's book was published in October
    2013 in two-volumes: the first volume of the book covers 1914 through
    1919 and compiles over 450 reports and articles printed in the British
    Press pertaining to Armenia and Armenians, especially from The Guardian
    (formerly The Manchester Guardian ) , and The Times and Sunday Times
    of London; the second volume compiles over 570 articles.

    The book was first presented at Hye Doon (Armenian House) in London
    on November 22 , 2013

    Katia Peltekian then autographed her book.

    I have not read the books, so cannot speak on what light has been shed.
    However, all Europe as well as USA were inundated with accurate info of what was taking place during the genocide, as well as hamidin & Adana.
    During the genocide, much sympathy & and understanding were expressed by both Europe & USA, as well as aid in various forms.
    Again however as expressed by Balakian in his book "The Burning Tigris" you can see the duplicity of Europe & USA politicle desire while doing ineffective "help".
    I am not saying a great many ravaged & traumatized people at the "end of the line" we're not helped.
    I am saying, the genocide moved forward without any incumberence & as planned.
    All the ultimatums & threats had the same effect as if two bit punks had made them.
    The genocide continued unrestricted.
    One can find many good deeds done for the horrified few. But the genocide continued unhampered.
    The conduct & goals of today by the USA & Europe started long before.
    Hagopn's pointing out the policy shifting from left to right to suit the politicle fraud is where to keep the eye, not the good acts that did nothing to stop the evil.

      I'm far from being an apologist for the Western Europeans or USA but criticism of their failing to act against the turc during the Genocide has to be tempered by what was currently happening.............there was a pretty big war going on..............I think it's accepted that the turcs used the opportunity this war gave them to annihilate Armenia.

      However, those same Western Europeans and USA failed Armenia in 1918 and onwards. They had an opportunity to completely dismantle the turc stranglehold but sat on the sidelines wringing their hands.
