There is no end to authors producing genocide books completely from the Armenians' perspective. I find it mind-boggling that with all the reliable evidence running contrary to the Falsified Geno$ide, these people can get away with their claims so easily... contributing to the already considerable output of such literary terrorism. Samantha Power, a journalist and lawyer (and since the publication of her book, recognized as a "human rights scholar") is one of these authors... to add insult to injury, she even won a Pulitzer Prize for her book. (In April, 2003, "for a distinguished book of non-fiction by an American author that is not eligible for consideration in any other category.") The Pulitzer board is comprised almost entirely by newspaper people, generally known for their anti-Turkish bias... and one of the members likely voting for Ms. Power was rabid Turcophobe William Safire, of The New York Times.

Samantha Power

I haven't read the book, but based on the reports below, hers is the sort of work comparable to many web sites pretending to be about genocide in general, but really exist as a front... their only purpose being to stick it to the Turks. The Armenian "Genocide" appears to be one of the main thrusts behind the journalist-turned-author's book. It's sneaky, because when you come across as being against genocide, that's one quick path to becoming a media darling... after all, how could anyone argue? However, when there's a selective morality behind this noble agenda... and a desire to examine only one side of a story at the complete expense of the other, then what we're dealing with is racism and fraud.

Here is how Ms. Powers defines "genocide":


...The foundational story in the book is about Raphael Lemkin, who invented the word ["genocide"]... So when he invented the word, instead of using the language of the Holocaust, of a definition that could be derived from the Holocaust, such as "a systematic attempt to exterminate every last member of a group," which is what people think when they hear "genocide," Lemkin wanted it to be a preventive category that would be more expansive — not too expansive so that it was meaningless, but more expansive than "extermination." Because by definition, to prove an intent to exterminate every last member, you would only know that that had happened after every last member had been killed. So the language in the Genocide Convention, which Lemkin then drafted after he had gotten his new-found word into Webster's and the OED, the Convention defines genocide as "a systematic attempt to destroy in whole or in substantial part a national ethnic or religious group as such." And so, again, the language of destruction can be "degradation," can be "ethnic cleansing," can be mass rape, combined with killing. But the idea is that you're wiping out the group, whether it's the Srebrenica Muslims or Muslims in Bosnia, or the Rwandan Tutsi in a particular region in Rwanda, or the Tutsi as a whole in Rwanda — you could subdivide groups; but if your intent is to wipe out that group as a group, as such, then you're committing genocide.

I happen to agree with that definition, for the most part... although I would think carefully before watering down the meaning of the word by applying the word "destruction" to other manners of harm besides outright killing. (Such as "degradation." That sounds ridiculous... practically any historical violent event can then be labeled a genocide, which would render the word utterly meaningless.) Genocide is an attempt to wipe out a group, in whole or in part, as defined by the 1948 U.N. Convention. However, the key is, there must be "intent"... and that is what is lacking in attempts by people like Samantha Power in concluding the tragedies that befell the Armenians could be called a "genocide." People can speculate and opine all they want, based on their prejudices and ignorance... but what they lack so glaringly is hard, authentic proof.

Yuksel Oktay, an engineer and past president of FTAA (Federation for Turkish American Associations), puts the spotlight on Samantha Power. A letter by a Turkish-American to the program where Ms. Power appeared to promote her book, follows.

Finally, Mahmut Ozan speculates on Ms. Power's motives, and gives a different interpretation of the "Hell" referred to in the Armenian Apologist's book title.


A review of Samantha Power's lecture on March 26, 2002

What is behind Samantha Power lecture on Genocide

March 26, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington DC

A presentation on the genocide issue was made by Samantha Power in connection with the publication of her book, "A Problem from Hell — America and the Age of Genocide" at the Classroom A of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum where the infamous saying by Hitler on the Armenians is also exhibited, which has been proven to be nothing by a fabricated lie.

According to the flyer distributed at the meeting, Samantha Power is the executive director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. She is not an academician, but a reporter who has served as a war correspondent for the US News and World Report and Economist from 1993 to 1996. In 1996 she worked for the International crisis Group in Bosnia.

Samantha Power's book: "A Problem from Hell — America and the Age of Genocide"

The Pulitzer Prize winning
book; William Safire
was on the Pulitzer team.

Two copies of the book were placed on the table before the meeting started. Going through the pages of the book, I noticed that the first chapter of the book was on the murder of Talat Pasa, a leader of the Young Turk revolution and a member of the Party of Union and progress that was in power during the world war years. There was and extensive coverage of Henry Morgenthau, the US High Commissioner in Istanbul who is known for his false reporting on the Armenian issue. There were photographs of the Armenian murderer and the high commissioner. To my astonishment, I could not find any reference to the US Ambassador to Turkey Admiral Bristol, who has written about the Armenians or to any of the US authors who has published books on this issue as well.

Reading the first chapter of the book and looking at the references, one could easily see that the book could have been better entitled as "The Armenian Propaganda from Harvard" which will probably be put aside after reading the first chapter.

The author was presented by a Director from the Museum, who claimed that this was going to be an excellent presentation on ' the crimes against humanity' and would present a chance 'to honor the past'. The director continued with a statement followed with the address of the web site where additional information could be found " We will learn what the obstacles are on how to deal with these problems". There were less than 50 people in the audience. The web page is www.ushmm.org/conscience.

Ms Power started by reading a passage of her book, somewhere past the center section which was about the Rwanda killings where over 800,000 Tutsis had perished. She commented that her purpose in writing the book was to avoid recurrence of genocide and made references to the Armenians killed during 1915, never mentioning the deaths of the Ottoman Turks at the hand of the Armenian rebels and terrorists. She also mentioned that there was good news referring to a 7 year project that has been carried on at the Center for Human Rights, again making a casual remark on the Turkish destruction of Armenians.

Ms Power went on stating that neither the UN nor the US Government responded to genocide properly and singled out Senator Dole as being the only up-stander when he got involved in the Bosnian killings. Here, she even commented that Dole was spared his life when his Armenian doctor treated him during the war and that he never forgot this. She also complained that Clinton did not go to Bosnia or Rwanda. One could easily see that Ms Power was extending an open invitation the President Bush to issue the Proclamation on the so called Armenian genocide, long sought by the Armenian-Americans.

Following the one hour presentation of Ms Power, the Director asked the first question, sitting next to the speaker. "If you imagine a world where there was genocide prevention, what would that world look like?" Ms. Power stated that she would challenge the question rather than answering it, since there is so much inherent selectivity, whatever that means. Then she went into a long and confusing dissertation which I could not really comprehend.

This was followed by a question from Guler Goknar from the Assembly of Turkish American Associations (ATAA) from Washington DC who stated that she had read the first chapter of the book and was amazed that there were no mention of Admiral Bristol or any of the American authors who have written about the Armenian issue, such as Bernard Lewis, Stanford Shaw, Heath Lowry, Justin McCharty. She also remarked that the author was inducing the evidence with the conclusions.

Ms. Power responded by stating that one of her limitations on her part was the lack of knowledge of Turkish or Armenian , and went on saying that she had no Armenian boy friend or anything like that and that the book was a result of 7 year research, also claiming that she had read all the books that Ms Goknar had mentioned.

As Ms Goknar left the room, I asked the second question, after elaborating on the lack of information on the Armenian issue from the Turkish point of view, first objecting to her use of "Turkish destruction of Armenians" when the Turkish Republic had not even been proclaimed. I told Ms Power that a Conference was held in Istanbul on March 15 on the 81st anniversary of the murder of Talat Pasa where 6 foreign and 6 Turkish historians and academicians had made presentations, including Prof Eric Feigl and Judge Samuel Weems. I told her that one of the points raised at the Istanbul conference was the fact that the murder of Talat pasa was actually carried out by the British by using Armenian murderer as a ploy in order to prevent Talat pasa returning to Turkey and also to plot on the Musul oil fields which British wanted to control.

I also told Ms Power that Samuel Weem's book, Armenia- the Great Deception, would be coming out on April 6 which would show to the world that the Armenian Church was involved in the Armenian uprisings and were partly responsible for the Armenian deaths. I asked her why she had not mentioned Adm Bristol and not a word about the Armenian uprisings and the death of Turks in her book. The Director mwas getting uneasy and asked me to cut it short and ask the question.

Ms Power responded by saying that she had studied the issue for 7 years and that she was able to present the truth as she saw it. I also told her that, what Morgenthau had produced was based on lies, but did not have time to state that the Hitler quotation exhibited in the Museum was a lie, and also wanted to ask her if she considered the dropping of the Atom Bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki genocidal, but the director wanted to proceed with the next question.

As I left the meeting room before others had started asking questions in order to attend a meeting, I felt that both the publication of the book and the presentation by Samantha Power at the Holocaust Museum of all places was by design and the purpose was nothing more that to pressure the President of the US to sign a proclamation declaring April 24 as the Armenian genocide day, which will never happen. I hope that some of the Turkish Americans who attended the presentation, including Gunay Evinch from WDC, will write about this and a worldwide campaign will be started protesting , the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and Harvard University for allowing Samantha Power to publish a totally one sided book, ignoring the truth, which is an insult to all Americans

  Open Letter to C-Span Book Notes Producers



Subject: C-Span Program with Samantha Power To: "C-SPAN" C-SPAN@newsletter.c-span.org

I am writing this letter while listening to the C-Span book review talk-show between your Brian Lamb and reporter Samantha Power which started at 3:00 am Monday morning in Istanbul where over 65,000 Armenians live peacefully among Turks. I am sure Mr. Hrant Dink, the publisher of AGOS, a weekly newspaper in Turkish and Armenian will have something to say about this incredible presentation, since it is an insult to them as well as to Turks everywhere. It is amazing how the mythical Armenian Genocide is being presented totally as a one sided event and with omissions and distortions of facts.

With all due respects to C-Span, I would like to present the following facts which I have been able to gather from many books written by Americans and others, including a new book a book by Judge Sam Weems that came out in May 2002 ''Secrets of A 'Christian' Terrorist State Armenia'' that honestly and brilliantly contradicts what Samantha Power has been telling us and to Brian Lamb, proving that the Armenian genocide is a lie.

1. I first listened to Samantha Power talk about Genocide and review of her book at, of all places, at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC on March 26. A summary of her presentation is given below, which was also sent to Samantha Power, but did not bother tor repond.

2. I am sure Mr. Brian Lamb had good intentions in inviting Samantha Power, but I am also sure that he did not realize the reporter was using a genocide that actually took place in Bosnia to advance the claims for a mythical Armenian genocide that never took place. Samantha Power never told Brian Lamb that the Armenians had actually started killing Ottoman citizens with the help and support of the Russians, biggest enemy of Turkey at the time and also of the Armenians, to create their own state on lands where they were a minority. The Armenians were not killed or massacred as Samantha Power claims, but tose in the war zones were re-located to other Ottoman lands, not to deserts as Samantha Power claimed. Hundreds and thousands of these people actually migrated to European countries and to United States.

3. Henry Morgenthau, a rich American Jew, never left Istanbul (Samantha Power cleverly refers to Istanbul as Constantinople, forgetting that the town became Istanbul in 1453), and used false reports invented by his Armenian help with the sole purpose of persuading the US Government to enter the first world war against Germany. Samantha Power never mentions Admiral Bristol, the US High Commissioner in the Ottoman Empire and later the US Ambassador, whose reports to Washington contradicted Morgentau's statements. These are presented in many books, including Prof. Heath Lowry's book about Henry Morgenthau.

4. Samantha Power mentioned that the Christian Missionaries came to his office and told him about the massacre of Armenians by the Otttomans. The role of the Armenian Church and the Christian Missionaries in the Armenian uprisings and their support of of nationalism among the Armenian nationals of the Ottoman Empire is still being debated. Samantha Power tells us only one side of the terrible events. These are well documented in Samuel Weems's book and in many lectures of Prof. Justin McCharty, which are never mentioned in Samantha Power book or lectures.

It is respectfully requested that Samuel Weems be invited to your program to ppresent to your listeners and viewers the truth about the mythical Armenian genocide and the findings of his book.

If I may of any assistance, please do not hesitate to call me at (contact information withheld)

A Letter to Booknotes


 From: Can Akkoc

To: C-SPAN@newsletter.c-span.org

Subject: Booknotes Program (author Samanta Power)

[To the attention of Mr. Brian Lamb]

Dear Mr. Lamb,

I have watched your program titled "Booknotes" with great delight over the course of the past 15 years. Your interviews have been, for the most part, impartial and fair to the authors and very informative for the viewers.

However, your recent interview with Ms. Samanta Power was a big disappointment for me when your guest kept referring to an alleged massacre of Armenian subjects living in the Ottoman Empire around 1914-15.

I happen to be informed about smear campaigns launched by Armenian terror groups and lobbies around the globe for fleecing the Christian world, most notably the United States, for handouts to sustain their crumbling state that survived under the former Soviet Union. There are, of course, land claims from the present day Turkish Republic which was founded in 1923 as reparations for these alleged massacres. I am totally convinced that your intent in your TV program was not to promote such suspicious allegations as historic 'truth' at the expense of unjustly defaming honorable peoples living in the region for centuries. I would venture to say your program was taken for a ride by a very successful lobby extremely capable of distorting facts through 'well polished' disinformation techniques. The author herself might have fallen prey to these strategies as well. At least this would be my optimistic speculation about her background and intent.

To set the record straight - I hope your program is seriously interested in doing this - there happens to be a book that just came off the press addressing the allegations of massacre, based, for the most part, on scholarly works by historians of Armenian descent. The title of the book is "ARMENIA, A 'Christian' Terrorist State", and the author is Samuel A. Weems. It would be a prudent decision on your part if you were to invite Judge Weems to your Booknotes program for a live interview on these important historic issues.

Respectfully yours.

Ms. Power, there is an old adage in the English language which says: "Look before you leap." The scrutiny of your much-heralded but nonetheless, mediocre book you chose to call "A PROBLEM FROM HELL-AMERICA AND THE AGE OF GENOCIDE," may easily prove my point. Ever since I previewed your June 20, 2002 C-Span interview, and its endless repeats polluting the TV screens with your one-sided diatribes aimed at the defenseless Ottoman Turks, I decided to educate you a bit on how to approach to writing of such a product. Here are a few pointers. First, it was imperative for you to study thoroughly both sides of your subject matter. Without a doubt you were going to write a concealed operation whose content would deal with the real and intended coverage of the alleged "ARMENIAN GENOCIDE." You may have been advised to disguise a bit your own identity in this venture, and conceal the essence of your real work, thus 'pull the wool' over the eyes of millions of inhabitants of this planet, in order to satisfy your Armenian benefactors.

Samantha Power: The Sly Who Shagged the Turks?

Samantha Power: The Sly
Who Shagged the Turks?

Let us not beat around the bush. It appears that to be able to hide your primary motives you had to write in great detail about all kinds of other calamities which had befallen this unfortunate world of ours, in its past. You, apparently, felt it necessary to mention a myriad of scourges, cataclysms, catastrophes of all shapes and forms such as the Irish Potato famine and the recent tribal massacres involving Hutus against Tutsis, Serbs against Albanians, Khmer Rouge against their own people and so on. This, in your estimation, was enough ammunition to prepare the reader for the "Piece de Resistance" of your project which was to be "scapegoating" the Muslim Turk, beating him over the head mercilessly and "why not" you may have said to yourself. Wasn't it true that in many European languages "Turk's head" "Tete de Turc", "Cabeza de Turco or "Turken Kopf" were synonymous for that expression anyway? All you had to do was to mention a few "genocides", here and there, and at a propitious moment move right in with your intended subject, voila! the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE would be there for everyone to . Thus you would, most assuredly, give an air of legitimacy to the whole subject. By accomplishing this goal you would be satisfied, your friends would get a good return on their investment, and everybody would end up with a happy ending, just like in a Hollywood production.

Unfortunately, the whole thing is about to backfire on you. Because, without you ever noticing it the times have been changing , rules are being altered. Your buddies, the Armenians, are having no more access to their monologues which they still adore. But it's a slightly different story now. For more than 70 years they had the field all to themselves. The Turkish people had remained passive and silent all that time. With no chance of receiving any help or sympathy from anyone in the offing, they preferred to leave the matter to the historians.

In spite of lengthy and expensive campaigns, of the Armenians or perhaps because of them, and with the diligent hard work done by Internet's online sites such as this one, the Turkish Forum, and its 180.000 active members, finally the world at large began to recognize the flimsy, shaky tenure of the Armenians' fake claims and sham accusations against the Turks. Those grandmothers' mythical sob stories they had heard all their lives, day in, day out, were not achieving their expected goals any more. The Armenian charges were one-sided and quite frail. They had to be propped-up like a house of cards. In order to give credence, to this inconclusive historical quandary, Armenians were in need of strong backing. They needed false witnesses and jury 'temperers' to defend these shaky accusations. Needless to say, they succeeded to prop up their claims and injected to them a few ghastly cries borrowed from other genocides to make theirs appear to be more believable.

I am unable to prove it conclusively, but I have a premonition that either the Armenian Lobby and/or various other Armenian front organizations may have been subsidizing you generously, Ms. Power, setting up your book signing schedules, your Media appearances etc...in order to publicize their shameless, unproven claims of 'genocide' against the Ottoman Turkish nation which was to have 'decimated' their ancestors, almost a century ago. Nevertheless, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and blame the inadequacies of your literary prowess to be an 'honest' writer, and the difficult content of your subject matter for your failure to convince the Turks and their friends.

The Turkish people have been blessed as of late, with the unsolicited succor offered to them by a Christian gentleman, the Honorable Judge Samuel A. Weems (ret.).of the State of Arkansas This is one person you should have spoken to or read his book before even putting down on paper your very first words against the venerable nation of Turks.

So far, many of my capable colleagues have written to you and to Mr. Brian Lamb of the C-SPAN news network about the Video program in which you appeared as a guest to be interviewed. They all tried to do their very best to educate you and show you how to write an honest book. You have made the transition from being a reporter to a fledgling writer. But you are not yet a seasoned writer. There are always two sides of a medallion to consider. A seasoned writer does some research before engaging in putting only 'hearsay' on paper, and never does show any bias for one party or the other, unless of course the very same writer has a preconceived prejudice against one of the parties.

Mr. Brian Lamb not being a historian, thought that you could supply him with the right information concerning the alleged Armenian genocide. Even a most- revered TV program such as C-SPAN could be completely fooled by this touchy topic in question. The genocide of the Armenian subjects of the Ottoman Empire is a figment of the imagination of the people who spoon fed you with that 'pabulum.' Ms. Power, that genocide had never taken place, but the reverse did happen and the ancestors of your dear friends killed 2.5 million Muslim Turks, Sircassians, Tatars, Chechens, Kurds and even non-Muslim Georgians during the same period of time they are accusing the Turks with a so-called genocide. These Armenians, as the citizens of the Ottoman Empire who became traitors of the most ungrateful dastardly kind, have yet to admit that they gave a bloody nose to a single Muslim. They refuse to accept that they stabbed their own government in the back in order to snatch away from the then dying and now already defunct empire a few miserable acres of land and a meaningless independence parchment about an Armenia which lasted a very short time.

Judge Sam Weems, or 'Judge Sam' as the Turkish people call him affectionately, has authorized me to quote from a lengthy portion of his recent expose which appeared in the Turkish Forum's online pages. Here's what Judge Sam, the true friend of all Turkish peoples everywhere, declares to the world at large:


To try to be labeled as a true democratic republic, a country must first furnish the following fundamental rights to its citizens:

- freedom of speech
- freedom of the press
- freedom of religion
- freedom to hold free elections

Armenia today does not permit these basic freedoms to its citizens and it must be classified as an old fashioned typical "terrorist dictatorship." The following information is proof positive of that conclusion.

The United States Department of State's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor issued its latest annual report on Armenia on March 4, 2002. The results found throughout the pages of this 15-page official US State Department document prove beyond any doubt that tyranny and terrorism are alive and well in the tiny land-locked state which calls itself Armenia-the first Christian state on earth.

The document reports that "on September 25, a Georgian citizen of Armenian origin and a Dashnak political leader, Poghos Pogosian, was found dead in a Yerevan (Armenia's capital city) café. According to eye witnesses, one of President Kocharian's bodyguards beat Poghosian to death after he made a not so complimentary remark about the president. On the following day, President Kocharian suspended Harutuyun Aghamalian and several other bodyguards until an investigation could be carried out by the prosecutor's office. On November 27, the Procurator General's office announced that one of Kocharian's bodyguards would be tried for involuntary manslaughter, a crime that carries a penalty of up to 3 years in prison. On December 7, the Procurator General, Aram Tamayian, acknowledged that the corpses' injuries were consistent with torture."

This is proof positive that there is no freedom of speech in Armenia, either. A citizen can be murdered in cold blood, --with the president of the country looking on-- for speaking his thoughts in this tiny "first" Christian state called Armenia. This is also proof positive that there is no freedom of the press in Armenia.

The state owned only official church of Armenia has not spoken out to condemn this brutal murder and this silence is proof enough that there is no freedom of religion in Armenia, because no other church is allowed to fully operate in this country.

The US State Department goes on to declare in its annual report and gives details of "torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and/or punishment" that are carried out in Armenia today. The US State Department reports: "The constitution and laws of Armenia prohibit torture; however, security personnel routinely beat pretrial detainees during arrest and interrogation, and prosecutors rely on such confessions to secure convictions." The report goes on to say "most cases of police brutality go unreported because of fear of police retribution."

"It seems to me " says Sam Weems "that the Armenians learned well from their Nazi partners during the Second World War. No real democracy operates under such Armenian state-approved terrorist tactics!"

The most serious findings made by the US State Department are the following:

There is no democracy in Armenia! Elections are rigged by the cohorts of President Robert Kocharian. There are no laws, whatsoever, protecting women from domestic abuse, and from white trade in Armenia today. Young girls are regularly sold into prostitution and taken to foreign countries with the promise of good jobs.

Armenia does nothing to stop this slave trade and there are no laws to stop such traffic in women, besides it is a good source of revenue for the corrupt authorities. Persons with disabilities aren't provided for in Armenia today, neither are the needs of Armenian children.

The current United States Department of State report is a must reading for anyone who claims Armenia is a democratic republic. Clearly the evidence is overwhelming that Armenia is perpetuating a great fraud upon the Christian world with its bogus claim of being a free and open democratic republic. It is past time for those who make false claims about the pure Christian democratic state of Armenia to go to work and create such a state before deceiving and fleecing Christians of the world out of billions and billions of dollars.

This American State Department report clearly shows that Armenia relies upon foreign aid from the Christian world as its number one import. The time has past for the Christian world to cut off funding such a heartless terrorist state until it starts to operating as a democracy the U.S. taxpayers should revolt against subsidizing these people who seem to be living in the dark ages of the medieval times of human history but still claim they are a democratic part of the modern world.

No United States citizens with their right mind should ever make tourist visits to Armenia because of the way the Armenians run their dictatorial state.

Finally Ms. Power , I'm almost sure that you have been defending the most indefensible people on earth. Some claim that your family is originally of Jewish stock from Poland. and that their migration to the United States of America from Ireland was not a first one, as you told Mr. Brian Lamb of C-Span, but the second migration. There is nothing wrong with being a Jewess, other than being an Ashkenazi you do lack the qualifications of the Sephardic Jews who are the friends of the Turks, having lived with them over five long centuries. It seems that if you were a Sephardic Jew, you could have never attacked the Turks the way you did.

The story you are about to read illustrate and also demonstrate the horrible nature of your friends the Armenians, and it is quite reminiscent of the Nazi years in the Concentration camps and reminds us of a Nazi Doctor by the name of Joseph Mengele. You do remember him, I presume. He must have trained a few of his admirers to do similar surgical experimentation. Today the unscrupulous Armenians are doing what Dr. Joseph Mengele did then. The difference among them and the 'good' doctor is that the Armenians are doing it for big profits in mind, and not for 'scientific' breakthroughs.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: The following information reached this writer recently. The source and the authenticity of the news item cannot be corroborated. This information is simply repeated here for its redemptive qualities and by the readers' own evaluation


German Federal Inelegance Service (BND) on 16 November 2000 sent 6 pages report to the head of state. The report, which is "raising the alarm", points out: "...We have obtained information and documents about "doctor-criminals" on the territory of Germany from Russian Federation and SIC countries. These groups are involved in purchasing and selling healthy organs of children and elderly people by illegal means. Some of these children are brought into Germany by Armenian, Georgian and Chechen "businessmen". They are the people, who have been lost and taken hostage in the course of wars... Intelligence services of Russian Federation and other SIC countries show helplessness and weakness in the matter"... (Berlin. "Morgen" newspaper. 2000. XI-16. page. 4)


In "Al-Jamahir-al-arabiyya" daily newspaper in Aleppo an editorial article"Abdullah's children" was printed. The article said: "...Sheik Abdullah has no children. However, there are numerous crippled and disabled children scattered in gorgeous markets of Damascus and in streets of Aleppo, whose names is: "Abdullah's children". Some of them sleep in wheelchairs... stretching out his crippled, cut fingered begging hand, some of them ask for help showing his cut arm, lame legs... It is impossible to pass by them easily. Willy-nilly you want to help them..." (Aleppo. "Al-Jamahir-Al-Arabiyya" newspaper. 1994. XII-20. page 4.)


On 26 July 1999 founded organizations named "Armenian Crescent" with unclear objectives and principles.

On 19 November 1999 Gleb Badalyan as a merciful man buys Fazila's child (two years old Nigar). In return Badalyan gives her 20 dollars and lets her know that if she gives birth again, he is ready to buy her child. [Diyarbakir. "Police folder", created for newcomers in 1999-2000. Page 114]

From that time on Nigar joins Badalyan's orphans. Today one can meet "Badalyan's orphans" (in fact there is no one of Armenian origin among them) You don't have to look for them. Because they come up to you themselves.

Some of them come in wheelchairs, some of them crawling, some of them leaning on sticks, they cry for money... they beg for living.

"Begging business" enriched the account of the Armenian officer Gleb Badalyan in the Turkish "Impash"? bank. According to the information, on 5 January 2000 Badalyan via the "Armenian Crescent" transferred 13 thousand 680 dollars, in December of 2001 17 thousand dollars to Tehran and Artsakh (Khankendi) divisions of "Adventis" Armenian organization. (End of the quotations from the excerpts of the said report)

So , Ms. Samantha Power, you were, after all, somewhat justified to have called your book "Problem from Hell" Now we know which hell you had in your unconscious mind: THE HELL OF THE ARMENIAN REPUBLIC.

You probably would say that I am prejudiced against the Armenians. If that's the case, my reaction to that would be: "I am not any more prejudiced against the Armenians than you Ms. Power, are prejudiced against my people, the Turks. However, in my situation I have ample reason to be so. Who would not be that way under the graphic circumstances illustrated above, for the whole world to witness and scrutinize?


"Biased Book"


 From an April 24, 2003 Amazon Book Review: 

Samantha Power uses a very attractive topic and without any hesitation makes quite biased conclusions. The title itself makes "sex appeal" and nowadays so many scholars and "scholars" exploit the topic of genocide.

First of all, I have problem with some events which she considers to be genocide. There is international law and the international convention on genocide of 1951. Earlier historical events, except Holocaust, should be considered carefully before we can assert that they constitute the crime of genocide. There are so many biases and politically motivated allegations. If Samantha Fox considers events during the First World War, why should we not look at earlier events in 19th or 18th centuries. Where is the border line? She has no answer for that legal problem.

She quite selectively picked up the tragic events - the Armenian-Turkish clashes of 1915, Rwanda, etc., putting others aside.

I happened to listen once Samantha Power and heard how she made remarks about Turks: "They are everywhere" — (self-explanatory).

The responsibility of a scholar, while he/she is working on such an important topic like the crime of genocide is to be impartial, precise and accurate as much as possible.

...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.
