The United States government prefers to forget the holocaust of Armenians, while the Turks - the inheritors of the empire that committed the worst atrocities of the First World War - are studiously denying the genocide.
But alas, the Armenians who perished in the rivers of southern Turkey, who were slaughtered in their tens of thousands in the deserts of northern Syria, whose wives and daughters were gang-raped and knifed to death by the gendarmerie and their Kurdish militiamen - they have no place in our memory or our history.
The Armenian community in Turkey had its Allied sympathisers when the Ottoman army was fighting the British and French in the First World War, and Armenians also fought in the tsarist Russian army against Turkey.

 Armenian Genocide
Armenians all over the world commemorate this great tragedy on April 24, because it was on that day in 1915 when 600 Armenian leaders, writers, thinkers and professionals in Constantinople were rounded up, deported and killed.
The Armenian Genocide was masterminded by the Central Committee of the Young Turk Party (Committee for Union and Progress [Ittihad ve Terakke, in Turkish]) which was dominated by Mehmed Talat [Pasha], Ismail Enver [Pasha], and Ahmed Djemal [Pasha].
Finally, the remaining Armenians were rounded up, told they would be relocated, and then marched off to concentration camps in the desert between Jerablus and Deir ez-Zor where they would starve and thirst to death in the burning sun.

 Turks.US Daily News - The Holocaust and Armenian Case
The Holocaust is generally regarded as the systematic slaughter of not only 6 million Jews, (two-thirds of the total European Jewish population), the primary victims, but also 5 million others, wiped off the Earth by the Nazis and their collaborators.
It is clearly accepted even by the Armenian nationalist historians that the Armenians tried to use the entry of the Ottoman Empire in the World War I. For example Nalbandian pointed out that this was regarded by the Armenian revolutionary committees as “the most opportune time to begin a general uprising to achieve their goals”.
The objective sought by the government in evicting the Armenians from their resettlement and moving them to the areas marked for resettlement is rendering this ethnic element unable in engaging in anti-government activities and prevent them from pursuing their national aim of founding an Armenian government.

Tens of thousands of Armenian men were executed by Turkish forces in 1915, and their families deported to the Syrian desert where they were systematically plundered, raped and butchered by Turkish gendarmes and marauding Kurds.

The objective sought by the government in evicting the Armenians from their resettlement and moving them to the areas marked for resettlement is rendering this ethnic element unable in engaging in anti-government activities and prevent them from pursuing their national aim of founding an Armenian government.
However, the Armenian relocation of 1915 contradicts with this total campaign, as an infamous Armenian author accepts that sometimes the Armenian Catholics and Protestants as well as the Armenians of Istanbul and Izmir (Smyrna) were exempted from the deportation decrees.

 Article in Holocaust and Genocide Studies
Quite astonishing, however, is his claim that what Talaat, a principal architect of the Armenian genocide, had in mind for the Armenians was not destruction, but "segregation," that the fate of the Armenians was to be that of African- Americans in the South in 1915.
In the end, the genocide of over a million Armenians is made to appear like an "amorphous human disaster." [25] A second theme, unique to the Turkish case, is the determination to deny the Armenian genocide by acknowledging the Holocaust.
Historian (and Holocaust survivor) Erich Kulka regards the denial of genocide as an offense in its own right, asserting that "Attempts to rewrite Holocaust history on the pretext of 'revisionism,' aided by scholars with academic backgrounds, must be viewed as intellectual aggression," a repetition in thought of what was enacted earlier as physical deed.

 Jews Deny Armenian Holocaust   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Though historians have documented death and deportation of large numbers of Armenians (as well as the deaths of many Turks), they disagree over whether what happened constitutes "genocide," a term defined by international law as the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group.
While many historians argue that it was the intent of the Turks to exterminate the Armenians as a people, others counter that such intent has not been firmly established and that the events more closely resemble a civil war than a genocidal campaign.
The debate over whether "Armenian Genocide" is a historically accurate designation or an exaggerated and politicized claim has followed the battle lines that mark today's political and cultural landscape.

Charny drew comparisons between the atmosphere among the perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust and even pointed to similarities between the early Turkish calls for "jihad" against the Armenians, with statements by Taliban leaders in 2001, calling on Moslems to kill non-believers.
He compared the denial with a domestic situation in which one parent abuses a child and the other parent often beomes a bystander and "rubberstamps the evil being done." Like in the film, "The Cukoo's Nest," said Charny, the evil must be confronted, or it continues.

Many Armenians who have settled in America, Europe and Australia (along with other parts of the world, known as "The Armenian Diaspora") have clung to the tragic events of so long ago as a form of ethnic identity, and have considered it their duty to perpetuate this myth, with little regard for facts...
It's amazing that whenever the "Armenian Genocide" is referred to in Western media, journalists seem to fall all over themselves in presenting the perspective totally from the Armenian propaganda machinery.
Another irony is that while Armenians have been doing their utmost to portray Turks as Nazis (in an effort to equate themselves with Holocaust victims, the one group best known to have fallen prey to genocide), Turks did their best to save Jews during World War II...

 Democratic Underground Forums - The Armenian Holocaust of 1915
Not content with denying the truth of the Armenian Holocaust of 1915, Turkish officials are now trying to undermine the veracity of the photographic evidence of the genocide that killed a million and a half Armenians during the First World War.
The Turkish government has been mounting an increasingly expensive lobbying campaign to deny the fact of the Armenian Holocaust, funding academic chairs at American universities - in which professors invariably questioned the details of the genocide - and threatening economic boycotts against European countries that acknowledge the Armenian massacres.
This people, living in some isolation of mountainous terrain, were much resorted to by the Ottoman Sultans as trustworthy killers: they had too many enemies on their own to turn against the Divan, and were too poor not to relish opportunity of rapine against neighbors.
