Syrian-Armenian Refugees Send this Videomessage on Genocide Remembrance Day

My very good friends, a group of young Syrian-Armenians, who have found refuge in Armenia from Syria’s raging civil war, have made this remarkable video message today, which I want to share with you.

A message to those who tried to scratch our chapter from the book of human existence.
We, the descendants of the Armenian Genocide survivors, are and will be the protectors of our identity and cultural heritage.
With a spark in our eyes, we stand up.
We speak up and hold our heads up!
Today, we carry the torch of our nation and prove to the world that we are unbreakable.

Garo Paylan, a Turkish Parliament deputy representing the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) made an unprecedented speech in the Turkish parliament. Paylan suggested to form a commission to investigate the killings of Armenian deputies in the Ottoman parliament in 1915. He then cited the names of the murdered Ottoman Armenian parliamentarians and showed their photos and concluded his words in Armenian: “Աստված իրենց հոգին լուսավորի.”
This effectively means raising the Armenian Genocide issue in the Turkish Grand National Assembly, which was certainly a very brave step to take in today’s Turkey. So bravo Garo Paylan, for your courage and for speaking up!

Today this understanding took concrete shape and form as hundreds of people rallied in Yerevan against Russian sale of arms to Azerbaijan as well as Russia’s treacherous stance towards Armenia.

My eyes are hurting… It takes me 5 seconds to read the title and look at the illustration, another 10-15 seconds are needed to separate propaganda from fact in the lead of the story. I skim through hundreds if not thousands of such articles per day and I don’t need to read the full article to know what I’m dealing with. It is pure fascism. Continue reading “Poisoned Blood”

Fragile Truce Holds in Karabakh

This video screenshot of a smiling Armenian soldier somewhere in the southern part of the line of contact between Armenian and Azerbaijani militaries has made my day. It marks the end of the nightmare, the end of 3 days of violent clashes, it reaffirms the promise that there’s no military solution to Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and it signifies hope that peace is possible… Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Fragile Truce Holds in Karabakh"</span>
