On April 24,1915 the whole civilized world turned it’s back on the most horrific and inhuman genocide the mankind ever witnessed.The Ottoman empire,(Present Turkey) under the leadership of Young Turkey regime, a fanatic Islamic party members committed mass massacres ,they obliterated one and a half million helpless Armenians for being Christians .
The West kept silent and became blind for not helping the Armenians.My wife’s parents and my parents were among the survivors of the genocide.They witnessed the horror of despair and injustice in their very young ages for being neglected and forgotten by the world.
Today we are witnessing more devastating genocides being carried out by barbaric Islamic extremists.In Pakistan tens of Christians were killed in their church.In Kenya 147 Christen students were killed in their university .In Nigeria hundreds of Christian girls were kidnapped raped and killed.In Iraq ,Syria,Yemen ,Libya ,the heinous Islamic state thugs are committing savage genocides every day.
United Nations, Europe and the USA are ignoring these massacres.It seems the world is back in 1915, dead conscience , hearts of stones and weak , incompetent leaders.
Today , April 18 ,2015 a magnificent memorial was unveiled in Pasadena /California,(the corner of Walnut and Raymond st.) to commemorate the 100th.anniversary of the Armenian genocide.My wife and l were among a multitude of Armenians to witness this historic and triumphant event.We sang ,we prayed and we cried remembering those who died holding to their Christian faith.
The Prime Minster of Turkey denies that the Armenian Genocide ever happened.Iran’s Mullahs and Imams are denying the holocaust ever happened too.Yet Mr.Obama and his untrustworthy advisers want to deal with Iran , later, probably very soon to build it’s Atom Bomb.
Shame on those American politicians Present and Past who promised to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide while they were Running for the White House but when they won the election they denied their promise . France is the only super power in the world which acknowledges the Armenian Genocide .
