    3552) Armenian Forced Relocation: Putting An End To Misleading Simplifications


    by Maxime GAUIN
    Specialist at the Center for Eurasian Studies

    Abstract: This paper studies three aspects of the Turkish-Armenian conflict. First of all, contrary to what the main Armenian and proArmenian affirm, there were hundreds of thousands, likely 500,000 Armenians, who were exempted of relocation, particularly in Istanbul, Western and Central Anatolia as well as in the Arab provinces. Then, the policy of the Ottoman government vis-à-vis the Armenian exiles was a protective ones, even if this protection failed in a considerable number of cases. The orders from Istanbul are clear. In particular, it is false to assert that the Ottoman government did not provide food and opposed the foreign relief. Such accusations are based on manipulation of evidence and neglect Ottoman as well as American and German . . . .

    Subject: You have published a book based on manipulated data and still keep it in your catalogue

    Dear Publishers,

    You have published a book three years ago that was exposed to be plagued with serious violations of scholarly ethics, involving the use of fictional documents, doctored materials and embellishment of dubious sources. Authored by Taner Akçam, this book is called The Young Turks’ Crime against Humanity. This revelation must be very troubling for you, I realize, but it is scholarly and thoroughly explained in the detailed review essay by Maxime Gauin in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (Routledge): . . .

    3546) Armenia Seeks Genocide Recognition While EXILING Its Own WRITERS

    Armenia seeks Genocide recognition while EXILING its own WRITERS // To President BARACK OBAMA/The White House/Washington, D.C (March 27, 15):

    As a citizen of the United States, a multiple award-winning author, the grandchild of genocide survivors, and a human being whose entire life has been deeply affected by the consequences of this tragedy in the relentless tides of a diasporan ocean, I hereby ask you, on the eve of the centennial of the monstrous crime that was the lot of the Armenian nation, to refuse political recognition to the events characterized as the Armenian Genocide in protest of the Armenian nation’s continued persecution and exile of writers, intellectuals, and activists who maintain opinions viewed as being in direct opposition to the ideologies of both the status quo in Armenia and . . .

    by Maxime Gauin

    “Proving” A “Crime Against Humanity”?

    The Young Turks’ Crime Against Humanity: The Armenian Genocide And Ethnic Cleansing In The Ottoman Empire

    TANER AKÇAM, 2012
    Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press
    528 pp., US$ 37.80 (hb), ISBN-10: 0691159564, ISBN-13: 978-0691159560

    Introduction

    After a presentation of what he considers as the relevant context (the Ottoman archives, Balkan wars and their aftermath, “ethnic cleansing” against the Greeks), Taner Akçam bases his “demonstration” primarily on Ottoman and German sources to “prove” that a “genocidal” decision was taken by the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP) leadership in March 1915, after discussion with the German government, and carried out during the war, mostly during the years 1915 and 1916, not only by massacres and deportations but also by “forced assimilation” of women and children . . .

    3542) Open Letter To Unprejudiced Readers Willing To Explore The Facts Behind The Tragic Events Of 1915

    © This content Mirrored From  http://armenians-1915.blogspot.com by Fikret Semin

    A historical perspective: Armenians consider themselves to be descendants of Noah and assert that their legendary leader Haik was a great-great grandson of Noah. The first to write about Armenians was Xenophon in the 400’s BC. Armenians over the centuries established many local kingdoms in the Caucasus, Eastern Anatolia and Mesopotamia, these generally remained in the spheres of influence of the Persian, Roman and Byzantine Empires while Armenian dynasties occasionally rose to power and reigned in Persian and Byzantine courts. Armenians adopted Christianity in 301 AD and established their own church. They consider their well-known aptitude for business, arts and crafts to be a special gift of God and believe that they have been singularly chosen. . . .
