Turkey recalls ambassador after Austrian declaration of ‘Armenian genocide’

Turkey recalls ambassador after Austrian declaration of ‘Armenian genocide’

Turkey told Austria on April 22 that an Austrian parliamentary declaration describing the 1915 killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as “genocide” would permanently damage the two countries' relations, recalling its ambassador. "This declaration....has caused outrage for us," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement. "We reject this biased attitude of the Austrian parliament, trying to lecture others on history, which has no room in today's world. "It is clear that this declaration...will have permanent negative effects on Turkey-Austria relations." The ministry said it had recalled its ambassador from Vienna for consultations over the declaration, one of a number by foreign institutions and parliaments as the 100th anniversary of the killings approached. Turkey accepts that Armenians were killed by Ottoman forces during World War I, but denies there was any systematic attack on civilians amounting to “genocide.” Armenian President Serzh Sarksyan said he was ready to normalize relations with Turkey, two months after he withdrew peace accords from parliament. "It takes two to tango and it does not only depend on us," he told journalists. The six parties in Austria's parliament issued a joint declaration calling the killings a “genocide.” It also held a minute of silence commemorating the Armenian victims. "It is our duty to acknowledge and condemn these terrible events as genocide because of our historical responsibility - the Austro-Hungarian monarchy was an ally of the Ottoman Empire in the first world war," the parties said. "It is also Turkey's duty to face honestly dark and painful chapters of its history." Around 268,000 people of Turkish origin live in Austria, according to government figures, of which nearly 115,000 are Turkish citizens. Armenia, most Western scholars and several foreign legislatures refer to the mass killings as genocide. Earlier on April 22, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said he did not expect U.S. President Barack Obama to use the word "genocide" in reference to the killings. "I would not want Obama to use the word 'genocide', and I would not expect such a thing," Erdoğan told a joint press conference with Iraqi President Fuad Masum. Erdoğan has expressed condolences for the loss of Armenian life during World War I. Germany's parliament is set to adopt a motion using the word "genocide" on April 24. Earlier this month, Pope Francis also called the massacres a “genocide,” prompting Turkey to summon the Vatican's envoy and recall its own.

Azerbaijan and Armenia meet over disputed territory

Azerbaijan and Armenia meet over disputed territory

The presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia have met in Geneva for the first time since June 2016 amid tension over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. Although recognized as Azerbaijan's territory, it was taken over by Armenian secessionists in the early 90s, and despite a 1994 peace deal, border skirmishes are a frequent occurrence. In 2016, these escalated, resulting in the deaths of more than 270 military personnel. … READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2017/10/16/azerbaijan-and-armenia-meet-over-disputed-territory What are the top stories today?

"Death to Armenian dogs" - Turkish hate speech in Sweden

"Death to Armenian dogs" - Turkish hate speech in Sweden

[This video is not intended to condone violence or hate. I am sorry if you feel offended by any content that can be deemed controversial. I follow YouTube's Community Guidelines, but please note that I have limited time to review comments so I ask you to act with tolerance and respect.] The clip shows a Turkish hate speech in Sweden. Sweden have had irresponsible immigration policies for several decades now and as a result of letting both refugees and perpetrators settle here, we get interesting ethnic conflicts such as this example where a Turk calls for the death of Armenians. Furthermore, not only have Sweden given citizenship to Turkish fascists, the Sweden Turkish Association get millions after millions of Swedish krones from the state. Hence, the Swedish state is financially supporting Turkish fascism. And to top all remarks, even though it is common knowledge that the Sweden Turkish Association is headed by fascists and other islamists, the Swedish state will continue to provide funding to the association like dumb sheep. Ps. With "fascists" I don't mean the common projective term used as an insult. No, I mean actual fascists promoting strong Turkish nationalism, racism against minorities, extreme militarism, etc. P. Ps. Taqiyya (تقیة) is a form of Islamic concept whereby a believing individual can deny their faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are in fear. The practice of Taqiyya dates back to Muhammad and his teachings. Today the practice is common among European muslims and one wonders if this clip is not an example of this? Let me know what you think in the comments!

Our forefathers, grandparents, always talked about it, it's something that happened. I'm 55 years old now I grew up with my grandmother talking about the genocide. But we don't feel any animosity toward the Turks. It's over and done with." 8. Various of restaurant co-owner Sinan Kapanman drinking tea 9. SOUNDBITE (Turkish) Sinan Kapanman, restaurant co-owner: "As Armenians living in Turkey, normally when we get into a taxi we can say 'I'm Armenian'. Now when we say we're Armenian we'll be seen differently, we'll be looked at as troublemakers. Even if we're not seen that way, we'll feel that way. So it's going to be very tiring, very difficult for us. 10. Various of customers eating inside restaurant STORYLINE: While wrangling over France's recent parliamentary vote on the disputed "Armenian Genocide" gathers pace, a group of Armenians living in Istanbul have found themselves caught in the middle of a diplomatic fight, that some fear could put their futures in their adopted home at risk. Sarkis Kortul runs a family-owned Armenian restaurant in Istanbul, and has been a Turkish resident for the best part of half a century. "We moved here in 1966 and haven't had any problems since. We live together with the Turks. We do our military service, go to school with them. We have no problems. What will happen now that this bill passed, I don't know," he said on Wednesday. The bill, still yet to be signed into law by French president Nicolas Sarkozy, would make it a crime to deny that the killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks nearly a century ago constituted genocide. Most staff at the restaurant don't doubt that the 1915 killings of 1.5 (m) million Armenians as the Ottoman Empire broke up was genocide. "There's no dispute. Our forefathers, grandparents, always talked about it, it's something that happened. I'm 55 years old now I grew up with my grandmother talking about the genocide. But we don't feel any animosity toward the Turks. It's over and done with," said restaurant worker Naze Bolak. What concerns some though is the reaction from the Turkish people, many of whom see the allegations as a threat to their national honour. "As Armenians living in Turkey, normally when we get into a taxi we can say 'I'm Armenian'. Now when we say we're Armenian we'll be seen differently, we'll be looked at as troublemakers. Even if we're not seen that way, we'll feel that way. So it's going to be very tiring, very difficult for us," said restaurant co-owner Sinan Kapanman. The French senate voted 127 to 86 to pass the bill late Monday. Twenty-four people abstained. The measure sets a punishment of up to one year in prison and a fine of 45-thousand euros (59,000 US dollars) for those who deny or "outrageously minimise" the killings. Most historians contend that the killings was the 20th century's first genocide, and several European countries recognise the massacres as such. Switzerland has convicted people of racism for denying the genocide. It also says that death toll is inflated.
