An intelligent examination of Ataturk's
achievements, written by Professor Christopher Vasillopulos; "Ataturk, of course,
seldom paused. In this and in so many other matters he acted and acted decisively...The
greatness of Ataturk is that he not only understood these ideas, he implemented them in
very unfavorable circumstances."
Excerpt from Stanford J. Shaw & Ezel
Kural Shaw's "History of the Ottoman Empire and Modern Turkey"
Professor Norman Stone looks at how the Ottomans kept order under the
"Millet" system, in regions that became powderkegs after the Empire's
collapse... emphasizing the high degree of toleration for religious minorities. "How
happy is he that can call himself a Turk," was aimed not at "ethnic
Turks" but at those who shared in this nationality.
|British and U.S. Archives Vindicate Turks
A fascinating chronicle of the intrigues
that operated behind the Malta Tribunal, the "Nuremberg" of World War I, and the
end-all argument against the Armenian "Genocide."
Anatolian Armenians, 1912-1922
Excerpted from Professor Justin McCarthy's Armenians in the Ottoman Empire and
Modern Turkey (1912-1926)," this is THE impartial and authoritative evaluation
of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, during the decade discussed. With maps.
Additionally, an Armenian map of the 1915 "Genocide."
|British Propaganda and the Turks
What a spectacularly invaluable and
eye-opening report regarding what was really behind Great Britain's propaganda machinery,
Wellington House... and the resulting repercussions still felt today. Thank you, Professor
Justin McCarthy, for your always thorough and excellent work.
Few courts of law will punish you for getting the better of your attacker if you
have "self defense" on your side. The innocent and defenseless Armenians
should bear in mind that they, after all, fired "The First Shot." After
rightly criticizing fellow historians who have little regard for the truth, Justin
McCarthy gives us a complete historical perspective that no one should ignore.
|Let Historians Decide on So-called Genocide
What is the difference between a true historian and a nationalist who unethically
uses a version of history to further an agenda? Dr. Justin McCarthy explores the
historical development of Muslim-Armenian antagonism, falsified quotes, the Teskilat-I
Mahsusa, attacked historians and concludes: "No claim of genocide can
rationally stand in the light of these facts." The "enemy of the
nationalist apologists is the truth."
|Justin McCarthy Speaks Out Against a Genocide Resolution
That would be H. Res. 398, on Septenber of
2000, and the professor supplies excellent counter-claims to the Armenians' nonsense. The
majority of American congressmen would turn a deaf ear.
Professor Justin McCarthy explains the
inappropriateness of the "P" word, when the idea is to present the truth. Prof.
McCarthy further expounds on the issue of truth, in excerpts from "Armenian
Terrorism History as Poison and Antidote."
& Fairness, Under the Ottomans
"The Millet system emerged gradually as an answer to the efforts of the
Ottoman administration to take into account the organization and culture of the
various religious-ethnic groups it ruled." Favorite guestbook writer Nick

... With only 127 rifles. A shining
example of the objectivity used by The New York Times, at
least when it comes to Turkish matters)
Officials' Defense, from Turk-Unfriendly Sources
The New York Times allows Foreign Minister Halil Bey to
speak his mind; Ambassador Morgenthau puts quotes in the mouths of Enver Pasha and
Halil Bey. They are the familiar arguments regarding why the Armenians were
relocated, but from the fresh perspective of emanating from the period. In
addition... the Personal Memoirs of Talat Pasha?
|The Siege of Plevna
A rousing tale which bears no relevance to
the Armenians, other than its being yet another example of Big Orthodox Brother Russia
trying to kick The Sick Man of Europe, near her deathbed; told in an editorial format by
Professor Mahmut Esat Ozan. A Turk is displeased, and Prof. Ozan's response has been
Concise Wrap-Up of Arguments Against the Armenian "Genocide"
Appropriately called "AN UNJUST TRIAL," put out by The Assembly of Turkish
American Associations. An Armenian web site sniffs, "Turkish Lies," but
the reader will be the judge, given the listed sources. The time is nearing when
Armenians can no longer get away with making their familiar charges of
"Lies," "Denialist," or "Revisionist." No, soon they
will find themselves with the unpleasant reality of needing to furnish REAL facts,
if they can find them.
|The Destruction of Ottoman Erzurum by Armenians
A 2002 conference by Prof. McCarthy lays on
the line the dynamics behind the disintegration of relations between Turks &
Armenians; the role of the Russians, the Dashnaks and Hunchaks. So many Armenians survived
in Erzurum -- instead of being deported and killed, as Armenians claim -- they slaughtered
that city's Muslims in 1918. And check out that powerful conclusion.
Realities Behind The Relocation
This .PDF file is from a Turkish source, which TAT has avoided for the most part...
even though essays by Turkish scholars are usually documented thoroughly... as this
excellent one by Yusuf Halacoglu. Citing actual ciphered telegrams, we can zero in
on what really took place behind the "deportations." The Ottomans showed
great care and sensitivity toward the Armenians, under the circumstances, and yet
all of this genuine archival evidence is still being ignored. How very... evil.
"There is a huge body of historical
literature concerning the 'Armenian genocide' that maintains that the Young Turks, in
particular Enver, Talat, and Cemal, intentionally sought to exterminate the Armenian
citizens of the Ottoman Empire." begins this excerpted chapter from Edward J.
Erickson's 2001 work, "Ordered to Die: A History of the Ottoman Army in the First
Treaties to Dismember the Ottoman Empire
The biased King-Crane Commission gives us a good understanding on how the
imperialistic Allied nations colluded in sharing the spoils of the Turkish nation;
it would be helpful to find justification to administer such a harsh penalty... such
as helping the Armenians to revolt and to create propaganda to demonize the Turks
once counter-measures would be taken.
|Ottoman Army Report on the Armenian
An internal Ottoman military
communication detailing the workings of the Dashnaks' treachery, showcasing cruelties
against the Muslim population, desertion of Ottoman-Armenian troops to the Russian enemy,
and an attempt to cover-up the traitorous acts with the help of the Armenian Patriarch.
of Christians from Anatolia
Why are there few Christians in Turkey today? According to the Armenians, they were
"annihilated"; the Greeks love to scream "genocide" of the
Pontus. Is that what happened? Or did they fire the first shot, slice and dice
innocent Turks, and when the tables turned say, "Feet, do yo' stuff"?
There were various reasons, but we can get the main idea from Prof. Stanford Shaw's
excellent "The Armenian Legion and Its Destruction of the Armenian Community in
|How do Turks Fit in "The Story of
Treatment of the Turks from a typical
history book from the "genocide" era; Henrik Willem van Loon's award-winning
work from 1921.
A great account getting into many of the intrigues involved, as the poor Armenians got
tricked once again by their pal, the Russians. Come 1915, these pals would restrict the
Armenians no end.
There were Armenian victims, but many are statistics exaggerated by dishonest parties,
with no documentation to provide proof. Meanwhile, the half-million Turks who died at the
hands of Armenians have been documented, but the world still ignores them. This page also
gets into Lord Bryce and the tainted sources of his infamous Blue Book.
If ever there was a force eager to present a distorted picture to the world, it was
these religious holy men, who felt no compunction in going to bed with the murderous
terrorists behind their cause. We take a look at a few of them and expose their
"un-Christian" lack of honesty and integrity.
|Armenian Rebels Effects & Consequences
In a dynamic new presentation, Prof. Justin McCarthy outlines the immense damage caused by
50,000 Ottoman-Armenians who treacherously fought against the country in which the
Armenians had prospered for centuries. He also touches on scholarship vs. propaganda, in
his inimitable style.
Gilles Veinstein on the Massacres
The brave monsieur took on the unpopular view in his Armenian-batty country. No
"denial" of massacres, just that there was no systematic extermination
policy... backed up by solid sources. Some letters follow; of course, the historian
was viciously attacked. This is a very poor translation of the original French
article; buyer beware.
|General Harbord Meets Ataturk
Ataturk confidante Kilic Ali Pasha gives his perspective on the meeting. The American
general witnesses firsthand the devastation caused by the Armenians. Armenians document
the violence perpetrated upon the Armenians by fellow Armenians, and one of the moral
Armenians on the scene lets the general know of the dishonesty of his Armenian-American
translators. She becomes part of his entourage, as a result.
Straight from the pen of an Armenian
historian! Vazkene Aykouni provides some interesting "facts," such as an old
Armenian lady lamenting the fact that she can't give birth to more boys, in the crusade to
kill Turks. He tells us there were over 250,000 Armenian fighters in all. In addition,
there are testimonials from other observers shedding light on how Ottoman-Armenians
(comprising the lot of them) betrayed their nation.
"A History of
Armenia" Excerpts from 1958
Straight from the pen of another Armenian historian! According to Vahan M. Kurkjian,
we can see an 1828 example of large-scale Armenian betrayal against their Ottoman
nation, a major Armenian "deportation" under the Persians in the 17th
century that is not called "genocide," the Turks had nothing to do with
Armenia's decision to join the Soviets, and a 1921 mini-"genocide" of
Armenians... by Armenians.
|An Armenophile Exposes 1890s Armenian Propaganda
Richard Davey loved the Armenians. Yet he admirably did not accept what he called the
"great Armenian horrors' boom" at face value. In excerpts from an 1895 article,
Davey takes a look at some questionable facts and figures.
"Armenia's Services in the War"
A chapter from Avetoon Pesak Hacobian's 1918 puff piece, "Armenia and the
War," is explored. The author was hoping to influence the victorious Allies at
the Peace Conference. Let's see what he had to say about Armenian contributions to
the war effort, which Armenian leaders of the period boastfully referred to as

Appointment in Ottoman Bank, Oct. 1915
An official and internal telegram related that the Ottoman Ministry of the Interior
(Talat Pasha's hang-out) gave the okay for Armenians employed in the Ottoman Bank to
be transferred to the Aleppo branch, five months after the order for relocation (or
what pro-Armenians call "genocide"). The irony need not be elaborated
|Talat Pasha's "Black Covered Book"
Hurriyet, the Turkish newspaper, featured a series in 2005 regarding the discovery of
Talat Pasha's "Black Book." The jury is still out on their validity, but there
are increasing signs that the information within may be on the up and up.
"Memoirs of a Turkish Statesman"
Jemal Pasha's memoirs were published in the West in 1922. Since he comes across as
the most bland of the "Triumvirate," what a pleasant surprise to discover
what an intelligent and educated man he was. He lays real history on the line,
and provides some important historical documentation, as the Russian "Orange
Book." It's a pity this important resource has been ignored, but luckily, we
now have the Internet. Take a look at what one of the "genocide villains"
had to say.

not only in his memoirs, but in an article he had written, excerpts of which may be read
Soviet-Armenian Historian: LALAYAN
An invaluable source! Some Soviet-Armenians didn't pull punches over the criminality
of the Dashnaks, and a few of their dirty doings were exposed in A. Lalayan's 1936
writings. Significantly, Lalayan sheds light on the extermination efforts of the
Armenians, during the infancy of their republic. If only current Armenian historians
would have a fraction of Lalayan's integrity and sense of duty to tell truth.
|Hrant Sarian's Diary: NO GENOCIDE
When he was 14, Hrant Sarian began to keep a diary, Anne Frank style, of his family's
"genocide" ordeal. The difference between this work and much of "Armenian
Oral History" recorded after the fact (or is it fiction?) is that this one appears to
be on the level. See how time and again, straight from the record of an Armenian who was
there, that there could have been no plan for extermination going on at the time.
Dr. Ed Erickson unearths amazing new information, in an article appearing in The Middle
East Quarterly. Once again, Vahakn Dadrian's one-sided research gets blown away, once
put under the microscope of genuine scholarship.
Were Turks and Kurds partners-in-crime against the Armenians? Not if the Kurds, or more
appropriately Kurdish tribes, worked against the Turks every chance they got... sharing
much in common with the Armenians.
A wonderful article by Prof. Jeremy Salt examining the role of the missionaries,
displaying the level of scholarship that is a foreign language to the genocide crowd..
A bunch of times Armenians were caught on record with their proclamations and articles,
spelling out their treachery, blowing the lid off their Myth of Innocence.
In this superb 1990 work of scholarly excellence, Prof. Jeremy Salt takes a look at how
the meddling and prejudice of Great Britain influenced Armenian events in the Ottoman
Empire of the mid-1890s.
Some surprising takes from U.S. officials and missionaries of the period.
("Surprising" for most genocide advocates, anyway.)
It's pretty horrifying, the way the Russians and the Bulgarians conducted themselves in
the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78. Impartial documents show the extent of their
criminality, laying the blueprint for the Armenians' own exterminating misbehavior to
come. The world still would prefer to talk about the Bulgarian "Horrors,"
