Armenian diaspora loses main lever of pressure on Turkey
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 15
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The European Court of Human Rights recognized that the denial of the so-called Armenian genocide is kept within the freedom of expression and can not be prosecuted. The denial of the so-called Armenian genocide clearly testifies to the failure of the Armenian Diaspora which has been manipulating this issue for many years.
An important point in this decision is that all this happened when the Armenian diaspora was actively propagandizing to put pressure on Turkey while taking an advantage of the 100th anniversary of the 1915 events.
The European Court of Human Rights considered the conviction of Turkish VATAN party leader Dogu Perincek by the Swiss court as inadmissible.
Perincek was accused of racial discrimination in connection with his statements that the "Armenian genocide" is a big lie.
Perincek was found guilty and fined by the Swiss court in 2007. The European Court of Human Rights considered this decision as a violation of his right to freedom of expression.
As opposed to Armenia and the Armenian diaspora, Turkey always held out a hand of friendship to the Armenians, but it always remained unanswered.
Despite the fact that Turkey recognizes the 1915 events as a tragedy for the representatives of all peoples, including Armenians, Armenia refuses in every possible way to open its historical archives to investigate these events.
Armenians are looking for the ones to blame for the 1915 events and accuse Turks, or the Ottoman Empire, throughout a hundred years without evidence.
But with all this, there are hundreds of facts proving the fact that it was the formation of Armenian gangs who organized massacres against Muslim Turks in 1915.
Despite all the efforts of Turkey to join the EU, the authorities knew that sooner or later the EU will require them to recognize the so-called Armenian genocide.
It's obvious that Europe starts to realize that Armenian claims against Turkey are unfounded.
It is clear that if the Armenians had at least some proof that the 1915 events were "genocide", they would have taken advantage of this chance long ago.
With the decision of the European Court of Human Rights, the Armenian diaspora has lost the main leverage of pressure over Turkey.
