 Here is how ruthlessly Russia has treated revolutionaries (the word "Fidais" used below is the counterpart to the Armenians' "fedayis"), without raising the ire of the hypocritical West. The difference here is that unlike the Ottomans, who were defending themselves from the madness of the Armenians within their territory (and where practically any response to the Armenians' outrages would be recorded in the bigoted West as a "massacre"), Russia's heavy-handed and often barbaric treatment extended, in this example, to trouble-makers outside Russia's borders! According to one of the reports below, Iran gave orders for the inhabitants of their invaded villages to not strike back; this is believable, as the Iranian government surely did not want to give the aggressive and militarily powerful Russians reason to advance further inland or, worse, to stay.

All three accounts below are from the front page of The Middletown Daily Times-Press, Dec. 28, 1911; only a few years before the "genocide."




Adopt Stringent Plans to Disarm Rioters.

St Petersburg, Dec 28 — Russia has decided to take everything into her own hands in the disturbed area of north Persia as completely as if it were her own territory.

The following statement on this subject has been issued "After considering the situation that has arisen through the aggression of mobs of anti-Russians at Tabriz, Resht and Ensell, and believing that these hostile acts deserve the greatest punishment, and seeing that the Persian government, whlle it is not concerned In these doings, does not possess the necessary power to punish the guilty, the Russian government has decided that it is incumbent upon it to take repressive measures in these towns, as It may deem best."

It has accordingly Instructed its military commanders to adopt immediately, with the co-operation of the Russian consuls, the most stringent steps to chastise the guilty parties and hasten the disarmament of the Fidais and other turbulent natives.




Persian Natives to Pay Dearly For Alleged Cruelty to Wounded.

St. Petersburg, Dec. 28.—There is great indignation here over the charges of cruelties and outrages by the Russian troops at Tabriz, which are vehemently denied. The anger of the people has been greatly increased by statements that the Persians tortured wounded Russians and mutilated the bodies of those who had been killed. No matter whlch side is the more culpable. It may be expected that as soon as all the Russian soldiery arrive at Tabriz the natives will pay dearly for their share. It is evident that Russia intends to hold a bloody assize, hoping to rope in with the Fidais a number of Georgian and Armenian revolutionists who escaped to the Caucasus lu 1905.



Persians Accuse Russians of Cruelty at Tabriz.

London, Dec 28—The Persian committee in London has received accounts of what happened at Tabriz. According to these accounts, the Tabriz people only began to defend themselves from Russian attacks after they had exercised the most extraordinary forbearance, and they ceased defending themselves on receipt of orders from Teheran.

They accuse the Russians in addition to the previous charges of various outrages of driving over school children and trampling them under the horses' feet.

...Is to expose the mythological “Armenian genocide,” from the years 1915-16. A wartime tragedy involving the losses of so many has been turned into a politicized story of “exclusive victimhood,” and because of the prevailing prejudice against Turks, along with Turkish indifference, those in the world, particularly in the West, have been quick to accept these terribly defamatory claims involving the worst crime against humanity. Few stop to investigate below the surface that those regarded as the innocent victims, the Armenians, while seeking to establish an independent state, have been the ones to commit systematic ethnic cleansing against those who did not fit into their racial/religious ideal: Muslims, Jews, and even fellow Armenians who had converted to Islam. Criminals as Dro, Antranik, Keri, Armen Garo and Soghoman Tehlirian (the assassin of Talat Pasha, one of the three Young Turk leaders, along with Enver and Jemal) contributed toward the deaths (via massacres, atrocities, and forced deportation) of countless innocents, numbering over half a million. What determines genocide is not the number of casualties or the cruelty of the persecutions, but the intent to destroy a group, the members of which  are guilty of nothing beyond being members of that group. The Armenians suffered their fate of resettlement not for their ethnicity, having co-existed and prospered in the Ottoman Empire for centuries, but because they rebelled against their dying Ottoman nation during WWI (World War I); a rebellion that even their leaders of the period, such as Boghos Nubar and Hovhannes Katchaznouni, have admitted. Yet the hypocritical world rarely bothers to look beneath the surface, not only because of anti-Turkish prejudice, but because of Armenian wealth and intimidation tactics. As a result, these libelous lies, sometimes belonging in the category of “genocide studies,” have become part of the school curricula of many regions. Armenian scholars such as Vahakn Dadrian, Peter Balakian, Richard Hovannisian, Dennis Papazian and Levon Marashlian have been known to dishonestly present only one side of their story, as long as their genocide becomes affirmed. They have enlisted the help of "genocide scholars," such as Roger Smith, Robert Melson, Samantha Power, and Israel Charny… and particularly  those of Turkish extraction, such as Taner Akcam and Fatma Muge Gocek, who justify their alliance with those who actively work to harm the interests of their native country, with the claim that such efforts will help make Turkey more" democratic." On the other side of this coin are genuine scholars who consider all the relevant data, as true scholars have a duty to do, such as Justin McCarthy, Bernard Lewis, Heath Lowry, Erich Feigl and Guenter Lewy. The unscrupulous genocide industry, not having the facts on its side, makes a practice of attacking the messenger instead of the message, vilifying these professors as “deniers” and "agents of the Turkish government." The truth means so little to the pro-genocide believers, some even resort to the forgeries of the Naim-Andonian telegrams or sources  based on false evidence, as Franz Werfel’s The Forty Days of Musa Dagh. Naturally, there is no end to the hearsay "evidence" of the prejudiced pro-Christian people from the period, including missionaries and Near East Relief representatives, Arnold Toynbee, Lord Bryce, Lloyd George, Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt, and so many others. When the rare Westerner opted to look at the issues objectively, such as Admirals Mark Bristol and Colby Chester, they were quick to be branded as “Turcophiles” by the propagandists. The sad thing is, even those who don’t consider themselves as bigots are quick to accept the deceptive claims of Armenian propaganda, because deep down people feel the Turks are natural killers and during times when Turks were victims, they do not rate as equal and deserving human beings. This is the main reason why the myth of this genocide has become the common wisdom.
