Legend about fabricated "Armenian genocide"

Legend about fabricated "Armenian genocide"

Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr. 20

By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:

To use the "loyal nation" definition against the Armenians can mean only one thing - the desire to help them achieve their goals in relation to the events of 1915.

The historians, hostile towards Turks, always use this combination to argue that the Armenians supposedly were the "loyal nation" during the deportation.

But if one carefully studies the archives of the Ottoman Empire, then there will be hundreds of examples of the Armenians' real attitude towards Muslim nations even before the events of 1915.

For example, one can refer to an archival document of the Ottoman period. It clearly indicates that the population of five provinces, namely, Trabzon, Erzincan, Van, Bitlis and Erzurum, which was 3.300 million people before 1914, and decreased by 600,000 people as a result of attacks by Armenian gangs, which mainly consisted of deserters.

The Muslim population of these provinces was exterminated, but some people escaped, by fleeing to safer provinces.

Moreover, the revolt of the Armenian population of Van province lasted from November 1914 to February 1915. As a result, the provincial governor was expelled.

The revolt was led by former member of the Dashnak party, Pasdermajan. He organized an armed attack on one of the country's banks in 1896.

In response to the Armenians' atrocities, the Turks decided to disarm the Armenian population. The Armenians claim that this was the first action in carrying out the "genocide" against them. But the following question arises.

If the Turks wanted to exterminate the Armenians, why did they allow them arms in the first place?

This once again proves that the Armenians' claims over the 1915 events are nothing but a hoax.

Furthermore, among the archives belonging to the period of the Ottoman Empire there are documents that prove the correspondence of Armenian political circles with the Armenians' Catholicos in Echmiadzin, who had close ties with the US president and the Caucasus general governor, Vorontsov.

Even before the 1915 events, the Armenian Catholicos in Echmiadzin sent a telegram to Vorontsov, saying, "Based on the information obtained through an intermediary, the Istanbul patriarch and the Armenian National Assembly, we ask for your mercy to convey to His Imperial Majesty the sense of loyalty of his subjects, as well as the devotion and the sympathy of the Armenians in Turkey."

This letter of the Catholicos proves the treachery of the Armenian political circles in Istanbul.

But not only has this served as a proof of betrayal of Armenians in Turkey. There are many facts that Armenians themselves do not deny.

For example, the author of the book "Patriotism Perverted", Kapriel Serope Papazian writes the following, "The members of the Dashnak party in Turkey didn't keep their promise to remain loyal... their actions were affected by the interests of the Russian government. The armed Armenian volunteers, as well as deserters went to fight on the Caucasian front against the Turks."

These mentioned facts are just a tiny fraction of all the facts proving that the Armenians of the Ottoman Empire were trying hard to destroy the country from within.

The countries that today so actively support Armenia should think about the Armenians' volatility.
