 Professor Mahmut Esat Ozan has been the rare, tireless voice in the United States, putting up his dukes in the sea of Turcophobes for many years. Here is a commentary exploring the awe-inspiring agenda of the Armenians, that appeared in The Turkish Times.


A Profitable Armenian Enterprise


This article is written in response to the bill introduced in California.


By an Armenian-American senator


"I regret to inform your lordship that there was nothing therein which could he used as evidence against the Turks who are presently being detained at Malta... no concrete facts being given which could constitute satisfactory incriminating evidence… the reports in question do not appear, in any case, to contain evidence against the Turks.”

R.C.Craigie, of American Archives, Washington,D.C. to:

British Foreign Secretary, Lord George Curzon — 13 July 1922


Fruitful Like A Cottage Industry

Before we go any further, let us review what the expression ‘cottage industry’ means. The newest edition of a well known dictionary calls it “activity carried out or job done in workplace or at home.” Nothing could fit better than this to describe the labor-intensive work of Armenians in Diaspora. These people struggle slavishly, day and night, at home or office to achieve their obsessive objective: To ruin the good name of Turkey and Turks by every possible means. Some of their self-admitted confessions indicate that “they live every minute of every day just to hate Turks.”

  This hatred-charged loyal labor force, religious to the core, is supported one hundred per cent by the mother Church. Tens of thousands of its members work in a strictly organized fashion, following a unified agenda to create a product, which will represent to the world, on their behalf, the sum total of all the alleged misery and calumny ever befallen on the Ottoman Armenians in a far-away land, almost a century ago. The product they’re busy fashioning is an item, vital for their existence, as much as the air they breathe. It is extremely in demand, because without its indispensable support their house of cards won’t have a chance to stand up.

The name of this much sought after profitable product is “GENOCIDE,” and the enterprise set up to produce it is called “GENOCIDE.COM” (armenians@genocide.com). There is a HUGE amount of hunger generated for this item. Every Armenian wants to acquire it in large quantities, to be taken out hot from the presses, to be distributed lavishly by Armenians of every walk of life, to every corner of the world. The item is used during their interminable discourses, especially while the non-Armenians are being wooed to join their side.

   These people could be the members of domestic or international Media, representatives of various legisla­tures. They say that this article, “Genocide,” should be abundantly used at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of all statements. This official procedure is to be strictly followed during all encounters with academics, city and state legislative bodies, or plain members of the local Press. As precious and indescrib­able an item the product may be, it is neither vegetable, nor animal, nor mineral. One may, however, call it ‘verbal.’ In normal conditions, ex­cluding the ‘Armenian sacred’ month of APRIL, the principal place and time for this item to be used is very important. It is crucial that the propa­gation of the made-up scenarios, such as the improvised sob stones, the sorrowful narration of human sufferings of all kinds, experienced by their ancestors, and the “brutal” treatment they received from the rulers of the now defunct, Ottoman Empire are sensitive anecdotal ma­terials, and they have to be made quite believable. Needless to say, a majority of Americans do believe them. “Genocide” has been an item whose definition these people have been improving over the years, ever since they heard it first introduced in a publication by a non-Armenian. Now, however having been appropriated from him, it is being honed and refined to an etymological perfection. Then it is sent everywhere to be subliminally transmitted into the cranium of every peaceful, and un­suspecting American citizen. This has been a proven method in which the targeted person or persons are made to learn to acclimatize them­selves to the wrongdoings of the Turks as perpetrators of the “genocide.” Nothing is ever left to chance.




All captive audiences are lectured time and again on the subject of a variety of cataclysms which allegedly occurred to their poor down­trodden Armenian relatives. Never mind the fact that the Armenians were the favorites of the Turkish Sultans.

One thing is certain, though; the dates of these horrible events may constantly be changing. They could be referred to, at times, as having happened between the years of 1915 and 1916, at other times between 1914 and 1922. The most popular of them lately, has been the one of 1915 to 1923.

However, this tedious, monotonous and definitely confusing work, is a labor of love for these unwavering, obdurate Armenians. Their work is believed to be generating from ghetto-like enclaves of Southern California. In ‘Silicon Valley’ alone 200,000 of them live, and many of them infiltrate the local computer-age cyber companies where they unload their one-sided views on the mythology of “genocide.” Unknown to these captive audiences is the fact that the “disinformatsia” the Armenians are passing on to their listeners, is worse than its original form employed by the Soviet Union’s KGB apparatchiks.

The product these people are disseminating comes from their “mental rumination.” because they feed each other constantly stories of the distant past, most of them are, the purposefully-embellished semi-fictional stories depicting vague events allegedly taken place in geographically untraceable locales, with funny sounding Armenian names having replaced the original ethnic Turkish ones. Armenians make out of all this, a lucrative propaganda Industry. By collecting, packaging and peddling around these mythical fables passed on from generation to generation, rehashed by semi-senile grandmoth­ers with their characteristically confused memories, they score success after success and thus recruit new turcophobes.

The well-known French writer, and member of the “Academie Francaise,” Pierre Loti, despised the Armenians of the Ottoman Empire when he lived there and had dealings with them intimately on a personal basis. He is rumored to have said once: “…their vociferous blabber is the only claim to fame.”

Actually, there could be no objection to what they’re saying and writing among themselves. But this is not the case at all. With great deliberation and determination, they use every cunning methodology and ‘modus operandi’ to disseminate these venomous views of theirs, and shove them down the throats of the uninterested American public and Media. This is the saddest part of the whole story, because, in most cases the same Media accepts their drivel without further research or verification of authenticity. And the newspapers represented by the members of the Press, publish them verbatim, swallowing hook, line and sinker, every falsehood provided to them by the Armenian organizations. However, there seems to be an awakening observed of late. Some of the members of state legislatures are speaking up, saying:

“Resolutions dealing with 85 year old political events which may or may have not occurred, at another part of the world should have no relevance to the affairs of the state we represent in this country today.”



Meanwhile, back in the Cottage Industry, oblivious to all this, writers of all caliber of talent and background grind out stories by the dozens. Every Spring when the month of April approaches, a ‘frenzy and delirium’ take over these Armenian institutions. Everyone competes with everyone else, to outdo each other in sending letters, faxes, and e­mails, even telegrams to any and all publications possible. After all, Spring is the season of resurrection, and their stale concoctions left over from the previous years have to be revived once again and expedited to their new destinations as if they were some freshly cultivated crop. So, now is the perfect time to go out and plant in various journals and magazines these fictional accounts.

   Get them published in a myriad of bogus articles, then take those printed materials to show to the state legislators, to U.S. Congressmen and Senators and demand that they pay attention to them and consider them in their future proposals, etc... And, lo and behold! Their insidious system works. The routine goes on, people are fooled, the deception continues with no end in sight. The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) is happy, and the lackeys of the Armenian constituents, the unabashed bootlickers, the Boniors, the Porters, the Gilmans, the Pallones, the Radanoviches are the ones who keep on getting elected and sustain the “GENOCIDE.COM” operations. Their ultimate goal is to reach and inundate and infest the inhabitants of every conceivable location in this universe and beyond.

The “drone-like” members of this cottage industry keep busy reproducing the tools needed to use against the Turkish nation and its government to force them to admit the “butchery” of millions of ‘innocent’ ancestors of theirs, and force the Turks to repent on the altar of history their systematic liquidation of the ‘millions’ of the Armenians in Anatolia. However, the figures used in this so-called “genocide” is an ever-changing’ thing. Every time they have reference to it the number of the victims fluctuates, varying between 300,000 to three million. This discrepancy does not bother the Armenians. They are used to this kind of thing. They are known to have lied and having deliberately misrepresented figures, and forge documents before. Interested parties should refer to the scandalous forged documents known as the ANDONIAN papers. On various occasions when they organize “genocide” shows around the country, usually a disgusting “photograph” is exhibited. It shows hundreds of skulls piled up in a most gruesome fashion. The caption says:

IN MEMORY OF THE 1,500,000 MARTYRED ARMENIANS WHO WERE MASSACRED BY THE TURKS IN 1915. The truth about this perfidious claim is that it is a lie. The photo is a counterfeit. It is far from being a photograph taken in 1915, it is in fact the photocopy of a Russian masterpiece painted in oil by Vassili Vereschagin who died in 1905. His original painting is still hanging at the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow today. The Armenians know this forgery quite well, but continue using it throughout the world on pamphlets and postcards. They did this as recently as last month in France.

Soon after the First World War, the high ranking Ottoman officials were arrested and imprisoned by a victorious England, on the island of Malta. the men who numbered 140 were detained, while an Armenian scholar named HAIG KHAZARIAN was appointed by the British to locate  evidence of war crimes and persecution of Armenians. After researching the archives of a captive Ottoman government, the British archives, and finally the U.S. Department archives, all the detainees were released after three years. Although Britain suffered a great deal of humiliation, at least, they thoroughly researched the matter and were decent enough to admit their mistake before releasing these unjustly accused people. (Erol Bulur, Media Watch report, Oct.3,l990)



What Adolph Hitler Did Not Say! The oft referred to infamous “quotation” of Adolph Hitler: “Who still speaks today of the extermination of the Armenians” etc… is as phony as a three dollar bill. Hitler had never uttered those words. However, he is reputed to have used frequently the following quotation, which sounds like it was borrowed from his Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels:

“The more you repeat a lie, the more it becomes the truth.” To be able to give a more authoritative answer to the above Hitler quotation, let us read a short passage from Prof. Dr. Turkkaya Ataov, Chairman, International Relations Division, Ankara, Turkey. Professor Ataov categorically refutes the quotation and says in part:

“As a matter of fact, Hitler had probably made only one reference to the Armenians in a talk delivered on December 12, 1942, in which he described them as unreliable (unzuverlassig) and dangerous (gefahrlich.).”

Adolph Hitler was not the only one who had negative feelings about the Armenians. It was Pierre Loti, the French novelist and world traveler, whose name was mentioned above proudly defended the Turkish position, when others sided with the Armenians because they were closer to their religious feelings and beliefs. Loti knew the Turks intimately for having lived in Turkey and written books about his friends, the Turks, about whom he once said the following: “Their loyalty… unblemished honesty...endless hospitality... religious tolerance ...moral elegance and natural tact, do give affectionately deposition for the Turks in front of great Tribunal of Humanity. Letters continue to arrive to me everyday, from officers, soldiers, even Catholic priests, who were able to know them closely at the Dardanelles and who remain amazed to have found the Turks to be as I had described them.

One of the most touching came from a soldier who had been their prisoner for a long time, to express his tender gratification of the Turks who took care of him with brotherly love. Thank God, the truth about them is beginning to make headway at home.” (France)…. He continues, “To speak ...about the Armenian race is for me more painful than one would believe, because the amount of their unfortunate ‘incidents’ rendered me almost scared; also... If I were able to claim and support that all the French who have lived in Turkey, even our monks and nuns, give the Turks their esteem and their affection, on the contrary, I believe that we would find barely one out of a hundred of us who has good memories of these ‘unfortunate’ Armenians. All who have had any relationship whatsoever with them, mundane or business — business affairs above all — were turned away with antipathy.”

There are other testimonials . The well-known student of Turkish affairs, Dr.Stephan Ronart wrote the following in his, “La Turquie d’Aujourd’hui” The Turkey of Today, Paris 1937:

Three times in the same millennium, Turks have built three intercontinental empires — the mightiest that history has ever recorded. This expansive spirit has always been the normal pattern in Turkish social life.

None of these early Turkish empires allowed the slightest religious intolerance to take hold among themselves, nor did they advance the superiority of one faith or of one sect over another.



Alphonse de Lamartime, in his 9 volume essay on Turks wrote long before anyone else that Turks were generous and sensitive, that their country was that of gentle, heroic people. He proclaimed that to be the foe of such a people would be like being the foe of humanity. He finished his words by saying:

“God preserve me from such a sin.”

Having remembered the injustices perpetrated on the Turkish people by the Armenians and Greeks in these United States, and having just finished reading the above unsolicited testimonials, I cannot refrain myself from asking the following question:

“Could our ancestors ever commit the crimes they are accused of’ Were the Turks of the old Ottoman Empire capable of harboring within their hearts a burning desire compelling them to annihilate a human race, the Ottoman Armenians? Invariably the answer comes up a resounding “NO,” no, no, never!

There are times when I find it impossible to comprehend the enormity of the accusation we Turks have been confronted with. To be able to endure for a long time, such a horrendous indictment, a “Genocide” we had to be totally innocent of the charges and we are. There was no such thing as a “Genocide.”

For those who ask themselves, Turks were such a fair, magnanimous, and gentle people, why then would the Armenians in Diaspora accuse them of such a horrendous crime as Genocide?” Here’s the answer which they will never accept because it runs against their profitable enterprise of GENOCIDE.COM.

They will always refute the truth. The wholesale Armenian insurgence in the Ottoman Empire for a pipe dream called Independence and the extortion of a piece of valuable Turkish real estate did not pan out ever since the Armenians have been playing the role of “bad losers” and selling a deportation/resettlement issue as plain old “Genocide.”

But why take the prejudicial words of a person like me? Why not listen to the an American, General James G, Harbord, the head of the U.S. Government’s investigative Commission, sent to Anatolia in the fall of 1919 by none other than President Woodrow Wilson? In his report to President Woodrow Wilson, and to the U.S Congress, General James G. Harbord said the following: “The Turks and the Armenians lived in peace, side by side for centuries; that the Turks suffered as much as the Armenians at the time of the deportations, that at the start of World War I and before, Armenians never had anything approaching a majority of the population in the territories they called “Armenia”; they would not have a majority even if all the deported Armenians were returned; and the claims that returning Armenians would be in danger were not justified.”

Finally as a definitive answer the accusations of the profitable Armenian Enterprise “GENOCIDE.COM” and to its tireless contributors, we have here, one more time, for every Armenian see and to learn by heart, the official words used on the declaration of the British Government from the island of Malta, where 140 high ranking Ottoman government officials suspected of having engineered the “Genocide” were incarcerated, and then let go free the end of their third year of imprisonment in 1921. From 13 July 1922: British Foreign Office Archives, 371/ 6504/8519, Mr. R.C.Craigie of American Archives in Washington, D.C. written to Lord Curzon, of England saying that:

“I regret to inform your lordship that there was nothing therein which could he used as evidence against the Turks who are presently being detained at Malta... no concrete facts being given which could constitute satisfactory incriminating evidence… the reports in question do not appear, in any case, to contain evidence against the Turks.”

I’d like to bring this essay to a close with the words one more time of the great friend of the Turks Pierre Loti who in his book : “Fantome d’Orient” (1928) wrote: “One should be blind to history not to understand the Turks.

The dignified silence of the Turks against the mounting unjustified attacks and mean slanders can only be explained by their pity for the blind.

…How beautifully this attitude of theirs answers the undignified calumnies.”
