Armenian Apologists of Non-Armenian Origin

There seems to be no end to "Armenians" in non-Armenians' clothing. The words of a few are examined, and countered.

 Samantha Power — Yet Another Armenian Apologist

The lawyer and journalist made a transition to becoming an author by writing a genocide book. Unfortunately, like many so-called "genocide scholars," she went out of her way to avoid analyzing both sides of the Armenian issue.

The Dishonesty of Genocide Scholars

 Holdwater examines this new breed in excerpts of an open letter sent to one of the worst offenders. Why are these non-Armenian "genocide scholars" so blindly partial to only one side of the story... even though some of them actually call themselves professors of history? Nobody can argue for genocide, so these people come across as honorable... but in fact, they are today's version of how the missionaries were perceived during the Ottoman Empire; since nobody expected the missionaries to lie.

Israel Charny: A Man Obsessed?

An analysis of prominent genocide and Holocaust scholar Israel Charny and his article, "The Psychological Satisfaction of Denials of the Holocaust or Other Genocides by Non-Extremists or Bigots, and Even by Known Scholars"

Michael Chapman's "Armenian Genocide Lesson"

 It is said that those who can't do, teach. And what is to be said of those who can't teach? For one to teach, one must first educate oneself, not irresponsibly rely on one side of a story. The director of the Cato Institute, Michael Chapman, showcases his woeful ignorance by offering us a "lesson" on a matter he only knows what he chooses to know.

 The University of Minnesota's Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies (CHGS)

One of the most vicious pro-Armenian propagandist organizations is an arm of a credible American university... fast endangering its own credibility. Read how CHGS' director, Stephen Feinstein, and racist guest speaker, Richard Hovannisian, tried to pull the wool over the eyes of their attendees, based on an exclusive report by Meltem Deniz. In addition, letters to the University of Minnesota's uncaring history faculty.

WAILS of the Armenians

Which folk offers the Armenians the strongest sympathy throughout the world? Some from Wales are a strong contender... possibly to honor one of history's worst Turcophobes, Welshman David Lloyd George. Here, we examine the emotional reasoning behind Assembly Member Cynog Dafis.

The Mind of a Pro-Genocide Partisan: Randy McDonald

Why are the genocide-obsessed such confirmed die-hards? We can sort of excuse the Armenians for their dogma, but you'd think those without ethnic emotionalism would look at the issues without bias. This kind of arrogance is not only the domain of the "scholars," who have their genocidal importance at stake. No, the rank-and-file can be just as unreasonably convinced. Let's look at the psychology of one.

Richard R. Korn's Flakes
The late sociology professor began the Institute for the Study of Genocide, presided over by genocide-gaga Helen Fein. Let's take a look at how Prof. Korn proved his scholarly chops with his article, "Turkey's Genocidal Crime and Silence — Mass-Murder of the Armenian People"

James R. Russell, Pro-Armenian Harvard Professor

In this page, we examine this Ar-Mania Man's "rubber stamp propaganda" as he exposes himself with a letter to The New York Review of Books, and with a review of "The Burning Tigris" in Forward. One would imagine an academician from Harvard would be a deeper thinker.

A Typical "Genocide" Newspaper Article

Ruth Rosen of The San Francisco Chronicle instructs us on how to follow the rules on the typical Armenian "genocide" article. Add a dash of Holocaust comparison. Combine with moral outrage. And don't forget that Hitler quote! What is forgotten, as usual, are the genuine historical facts.

Rudolph Rummel, Democide Demagogue

His work is often authoritatively cited in pro-Armenian sources. Exactly how open-minded is Prof. Rummel? An in-depth analysis.

Is Henry Theriault "brainwashed or something"?

The philosopher has bought all the pro-genocide claims, from barbed wire concentration camps to the Andonian forgeries. These "facts" are enough for him, and he loves to use the word "denier" in every other sentence.

The Splendid Fond Fleece: Christopher Simpson

Currently chairing the Historical Advisory Board of an Armenian Institute, the putative scholar has committed himself completely to the affirmation of this false genocide. Christopher Simpson's chapter from "The Splendid Blond Beast" is explored, along with other statements, and the journalist's lack of respect for historical facts is a wonder to behold.

Sir Martin Gilbert: In the Armenians' Corner

Sir Martin Gilbert is known as a biographer of Winston Churchill and has written some 75 books. A good chunk of these are Holocaust (9 books) and genocide-related. Here we have another genocide-centric scholar who has completely accepted at face value the Armenian Genocide Industry's claims. The historical claims are so amateurishly written, it's actually embarrassing.

The Huff and Puff of Tessa Hofmann

If ever there was an award for Most Vicious genocide scholar, I'd think Frau Hofmann would be up for the running. She has been hard at work for over a quarter-century glossing over the surface of history, and at times engaging in outright falsifications... as demonstrated with the cover of a book she was likely responsible for. She does a better job with her prejudices than your average genocide scholar.

Watching "Jihad Watch"

Robert Spencer passes himself off as a scholar of Islam, but his only interest in familiarizing himself with the religion is to influence others to regard it in as poor a light as he does. Islamophobic sites run by right-wing Christians is not a new phenomenon. This is a look at one of them, Jihad Watch.

Alfred de Zayas: the Armenians' Wet Dream

This one has a specialty: Alfred de Zayas is concerned with proving the U.N. Convention can be applied retroactively, and because he is an "international legal expert," his words seem to carry weight. As with the others, he completely accepts the propagandistic claims, without question.

Thomas O'Dwyer's Eyes Smiling Upon the Armenians

"Keep on denying, folks. But remember, the dead won't let you forget." That's the last line from a 2003 article from Journalist Thomas O'Dwyer, taking a shot at the "deniers." Let's see what an excellent job he has performed in exclusively utilizing sources from Armenian propaganda.

Henry Morgenthau III: A Chip Off the Old Blockhead

Junior is gaga over gramps, understandably. But you'd think one who served as a prosecutor would manage to determine some objectivity and ability to conduct independent analysis. No, the grandkid is content to simply parrot propaganda-speak, thank you. A look at a 2003 essay that appeared in the Armenian mouthpiece, The Boston Globe.

Frank Chalk: Chalked Up to Ineptitude

Frank Chalk, with "partner" Kurt Jonassohn, has been at the genocide game since the late 1970s. As your typical genocide scholar, he too has abandoned reason and factuality in the simple-minded quest to affirm Armenian propaganda. But Chalk has less of an excuse to be so irresponsible; he is supposed to be an actual "historian."

Samantha Power's Hell Problem

A brief excerpt from Power's book, "A Problem from Hell," was featured on her publisher's site. It was only appropriate to examine how truthful her claims were. Practically every sentence she has written has little to do with actual history, and everything to do with vicious, hateful propaganda. The last thing Samantha Power may be called is a "scholar."

Samantha Power's Hell Problem, Part II

The book was on hand, and the urge became irresistible to look into the rest. After dissecting the rest of Power's totally unscholarly "Armenian Genocide" chapter (it took her seven years to write this nonsense, she claims), our analysis also gets into Raphael Lemkin, the first genocide scholar, and his disturbing characteristics that set the fanatical mold. Finally, Power's favorite genocides are examined, although we know none can ever top her favorite, featuring beloved Armenians.

Husband and Wife "Historians" Under Armenian Influence

A look at the married tag team of Professors Margaret Lavinia Anderson and James J. Sheehan. They're not genocide scholars. They're supposed to be real historians. But they've allowed themselves to swallow the familiar propaganda, the wife apparently whole-heartedly, and the husband because he didn't care to look more closely. It's a sad situation. And the husband is not just any historian, either.

Willful Manipulator? Or is Baroness Cox a Sucker?

The Lady Cox was appointed to the British Parliament for life, and her prejudices are simply out of control. The worst part of it is (well, maybe not the worst part) that this Christian activist pretends to be "impartial" and for "human rights."

Robert Manne the Torpedoes: Full Sleaze Ahead

The Australian professor of Politics, Robert Manne, decided to throw a new angle on the Armenians' poppycock: Gallipoli helped cause the "genocide," as both started nearly the same day.

Holstering the Guns of Holger Terp
Danish Peace Activist Holger Terp tries to "contradict" the factual history of these events by relying not simply on the word of Danish missionaries, but on the word of their non-historian biographers. Begins with an examination of the "liberal" mindset.


Worse than an individual "genocide scholar" is an organization pretending to do good while spreading racist propaganda. FACING HISTORY AND OURSELVES is one of the worst of these, while attracting millions of dollars in contributions as a "noble" operation. This page will mainly feature a letter written to one of the company's principals, which went totally ignored.

Justin McCarthy's "Scholarly" Critic: Frédéric Paulin

French Mathematician Frédéric Paulin has gotten a lot of mileage from Armenian propagandists, from his years-old attempt to discredit Justin McCarthy. Let's take a look at whether the monsieur has made any real sense.

Genocide Pays a Dividend to Samantha Power

Now recognized for her morality, Power gains a coveted slot at TIME magazine. A look at the developments, as well as TIME's stance on the Armenians' genocide.


A Case Made Against "Genocide Deniers"

Scott Jaschik wrote an article for Inside Higher Ed that evidently tried to discredit academics telling the historical truth.

The Ravin' and Rantin' of Gregory Stanton

There's a new sheriff in town, far as presiding over the International Association of Genocide Scholars; not that Gregory Stanton has been unfamiliar with the terrain of genocide scholarship.

The Kaiser Defect

Hilmar Kaiser got Dennis Papazian stomping mad. Is Kaiser an agent for the Turkish government? Or is he another diehard "Armenian genocide historian"?





A look at Hilmar Kaiser

...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.
