How to Counter 7 Lies in Turkey’s Denial of the Armenian Genocide

AT: Next week, on the 24th, is the commemoration of the Armenian genocide, 114 years after the Ottoman Empire started systematically murdering 1.5 million Armenians, as well as Greek and Assyrian minority Christians.

One man and the state he leads will not be participating in this important recognition of historical truth.  Turkey’s anti-SemiticIslamist president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, fancies himself the reviver of a neo-Ottoman Empire and has undertaken to spread his ideological influence globally.  That includes Armenian genocide denial.

While Turkey has long fought the recognition of the Armenian genocide internationally, the situation under Erdoğan’s Islamist ideology has led him into an alliance with the international Muslim Brotherhood and its American affiliates.  This has given Turkish propaganda a reach into the United States that didn’t exist at these levels before.  Samantha Rose Mandeles wrote at The American Spectator in February on how Turkish diplomats have spoken at and influenced prominent Muslim groups since 2014.  One such organization officially embracing Turkey’s genocide denial is the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), an umbrella group of over 30 Islamist charities and mosques, which published a “Statement on 1915 Turkish-Armenian Events” that forwards Turkey’s denialism.

American Muslim organizations that founded the USCMO include American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), ICNA, Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), MAS, Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), and The Mosque Cares (Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed).  Today, 32 Muslim organizations and mosques affiliate with the group.

Now Turkey has gone a step farther: actively distributing Armenian genocide denialist propaganda to American Muslims.  Last year, MAS’s 21st annual West Coast convention took place from November 22 to 24 at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, California.  The conference featured booths from Muslim charities and businesses.  But Turkey was the only Muslim government present, represented by two booths.  There, amid complimentary Turkish flags, hats, and t-shirts, they distributed free books and pamphlets challenging the regime’s enemies, including the Armenian people.   more here

5 Comments on How to Counter 7 Lies in Turkey’s Denial of the Armenian Genocide

  1. Explain the constant substitution of the words “Islamist” or “Islamism” for ISLAM.

    There are no sects of Islam in the manner of a “reform” or even “conservative” (in the sense of “more moderate”) Islam.

    There are only Muslims who are negligent in practice or ignorant with regard to the dictates of their religion. That’s not “moderate”. That’s negligent or ignorant. And every single one of these is a risk that one day he could be motivated to be come conscientious or educated.

  2. …you are correct, @janitor. Islam is a death cult that insists on cutting non-Muslims down as bloodily as possible until the whole world worships a!!ah. This is why I encourage people to READ the Koran, the Sunnah, the Bukhari, etc., so they can CLEARLY see, in it’s pedophile founder’s own words, how Islam regards them and is REQUIRED to treat them.

    …and any Muslim that tells you different is either a bad Muslim or a good liar, as @janitor says.

    …and do not forget that Muslims are COMMANDED to lie for Islam, in ways that actully have NAMES, taqiyya and kitman, which means you can NEVER believe what a Muslim says, if they are TRULY Muslims…

  3. So happy Erdogan fancies himself the new leader of an Ottoman Empire. Send him where the Ottoman Empire and its other leaders went: to their death.

    Isn’t it funny how often in History muslims kill Christians and Jews? And when they do eliminate non-muslims in their lands it leads to their regression into another Shithole, every time, in every place they’ve done it.

  4. Will so much as ONE USA smellocrat
    the smelly moslems for this denial ?

    Whose side are the USA smellocrats on ?

    Why is this cowardly denial tolerated ?

    How would it not be patriotic to demand the
    TOTAL obliteration of the smellocrat party
    for its failure to protect our country ?
