April 24, 2015: Armenia Genocide Day - Turks killed 1.5 mil Armenians (Islam Danger)
Armenia (1st Christian country) marks the date of 24 April 1915 as the start of the mass killings. The country has long campaigned for greater recognition of what it regards as a genocide.
April 24th, 2015 - is this year's anniversary of this horrible holocaust...

This bitter dispute is rooted in a violent period of world history, as Europe and much of the Middle East was torn apart by World War I, in the declining years of the Ottoman Empire.
This era of atrocities continues to be referred to as "The Armenian Genocide", but in reality the Turks targeted all minority groups which were Christian, and killed or displaced millions of Armenians, Ionian and Pontic Greeks as well as Christian Assyrians.
The Pontic Greeks were driven on the same death marches by the Turks, along with the Assyrians, as they lived in more inland areas. The Ionians had the best chance for escape, as they lived on the western coastal region, though many were still slaughtered - even into the 1920s (most notably at the burning/massacre of Smyrna (Izmir to the Turks) in 1922.
Armenia was the very first Christian country. So it should be no shock or surprise that satanic forces (Muslims) tried to brutally "snuff it out"... /s/ Steve @ http://prorege-forum.com/ . During this same period, Greek Christians suffered just as badly from Ottoman Turks bent on eradicating Christianity from Greece also.
'Genocide' is a word that the White House avoids each April 24, when the Armenians commemorate the horrific event, which traditionally is dated from 1915. The US government acknowledges the atrocity without naming it, so as not to offend Turkey, which vehemently denies there was a genocide. As no surprise, Obama avoided that word also this year. On April 23, 2011, Obama acknowledged it happened, but called it a massacre.
"Each year on this day, we pause to remember the victims of one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century, when as many as 1.5 million Armenians lost their lives in the final years of the Ottoman Empire, many of them victims of mass killings and forced exile.
The 1st Genocide of the 20th Century
Christian Armenians around 1915 - Armenia was the first Christian country
Before the Nazi's slaughtered 6 million Jews, before the Khmer Rouge killed 1.7 million of their fellow Cambodians, before Rwandan Hutus killed 800,000 ethnic Tutsis, the Armenians of Turkey endured mass slaughter at the hands of the Muslim Ottoman Turks. The centuries of Turkish rule reduced Asia Minor, the epicenter of western civilization and Christendom, into a bloody Islamic satanic cesspool which culminated in a genocide by Turks against Armenian and Greek Christian populations.
The Armenian Genocide, occurred when 2 million Armenians living in Turkey were eliminated from their historic homeland through forced deportation and massacres by the Turks. As Turkish authorities forced them out of eastern Turkey, Armenians say they lost 1.5 million people in 1915-23, during and after World War I. Turkey says the death count is inflated and that the deaths were a result of civil unrest. To this day Turkey denies the Armenian genocide, but history cannot be hidden or rewritten.
Even Adolf Hitler cited the killing of the Armenians as a precedent for his own slaughter of the Jews two decades later.
"Kill without mercy!" the Nazi leader told his military on the eve of the Holocaust. "Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" See reference for this statement by Hitler at the very bottom.
Muslim Turks seem to rejoice watching a massacred Christian family. Even babies were tortured and massacred.
April 24th 1915, is commemorated worldwide by Armenians as Genocide Memorial
Day, when hundreds of Armenian leaders were murdered in Istanbul after being
summoned and gathered.

Theodore Roosevelt on the Armenian Holocaust:
In his book "Fear God and Take Your Own Part" (NY, George H. Doran Co, 1916), Theodore Roosevelt wrote:
"Armenians, who for some centuries have sedulously avoided militarism and war, and have practically applied advanced pacifist principles...and they are so suffering precisely and exactly because they have been pacifists whereas their neighbors, the Turks, have not been pacifists but militarists." Page 61
"During the last year and a half...unoffending, industrious and law abiding peoples like the Armenians, have been subject to wrongs far greater than any that have been committed since the close of the Napoleonic Wars...and, indeed, in the case of the Armenians, the wars of Genghis Khan and Tamerlane in Asia." Page 111
In the early 1800's, President John Quincy Adams commented on the fate of Christians in Muslim lands (John Quincy Adams, "Essays on Turks", page 303):
"Those provinces are the abode of ten millions of human beings, two thirds of whom are Christians, groaning under the intolerable oppression of less than three million Turks. Those provinces are in some of the fairest regions of the earth.
They were Christian countries, subdued during the conquering period of the Mahometan imposture, by the ruthless scymetar of the Ottoman race; and under their iron yoke, have been gradually dwindling in population, and sinking into barbarism.
Time of their redemption is at hand."
Below is what he wrote regarding treaties with Muslims (John Quincy Adams, "Essays on Turks", pages 274-275), which is something Presidents Carter to the present Barack Obama have not been able to comprehend:
"The victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace and the faithful follower of the prophet may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat, but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory when it can be made effective...The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud or by force. Of Mahometan good faith, we have as memorable examples ourselves.... Such is the spirit, which governs the hearts of men, to whom treachery and violence are taught as principles of religion."

New Armenian Genocide Museum in Washington, D.C.
Corner of 14th and G Streets, NW
Several blocks from the White House, Armenian-Americans are building a genocide museum. Like the US Holocaust Memorial Museum down the street, its location will make it impossible to ignore.
Genocide is a word that the White House avoids each April 24, when the Armenians commemorate the horrific event, which traditionally is dated from 1915. The US government acknowledges the atrocity without naming it, so as not to offend Turkey, which vehemently denies there was a genocide. As no surprise, Obama avoided that word also this year.

Turks apologize for Armenian massacres
Prominent intellectuals show regret online for World War I-era atrocities
Dec. 15, 2008
ANKARA, Turkey - A group of about 200 Turkish intellectuals on Monday issued an apology on the Internet for the World War I-era massacres of Armenians in Turkey.
The group of prominent academics, journalists, writers and artists avoided using the contentious term "genocide" in the apology, using the less explosive "Great Catastrophe" instead.
"My conscience does not accept that (we) remain insensitive toward and deny the Great Catastrophe that the Ottoman Armenians were subjected in 1915," read the apology. "I reject this injustice, share in the feelings and pain of my Armenian brothers, and apologize to them."
The apology is a sign that many in Turkey are ready to break a long-held taboo against acknowledging Turkish culpability for the deaths.
Historians estimate that, in the last days of the Ottoman Empire, up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks in what is widely regarded as the first genocide of the 20th century. Armenians have long pushed for the deaths to be recognized as genocide.
While Turkey does not deny that many died in that era, the country has rejected the term genocide, saying the death toll is inflated and the deaths resulted from civil unrest during the Ottoman Empire's collapse.
Nearly 2,500 members of the public also signed the online apology, giving their support to the intellectuals.

Jerusalem Post, 27 Aug 07:
Turkey: 'Israel must get US Jews to back down'
Turkey expects Israel to "deliver" American Jewish organizations and ensure that the US Congress does not pass a resolution characterizing as genocide the massacre of Armenians during World War I, Turkish Ambassador to Israel Namik Tan told The Jerusalem Post Sunday. Tan cut short a vacation and rushed back to Israel Thursday to deal with the Anti-Defamation League's reversal last week of its long-standing position on the issue. Turkey's concern is that last week's decision by ADL national director Abe Foxman would open the dikes and enable the passage in Congress of a nonbinding resolution calling Ottoman Turkey's actions against the Armenians "genocide." Tan said that while he understood Congressional resolutions on this would have no real "teeth," the psychological importance was enormous. Accepting the resolution, he said, "means you deny the past, it means you say that my ancestors have done something inconceivable. And the people who will be encouraged by this will use it to set up a campaign against Turkey and the Turkish people."

Pope Francis said on 12 April 2015:
"In the past century, our human family has lived through three massive and unprecedented tragedies," the Pope said at a Mass at St. Peter's Basilica to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian massacres.
"The first, which is widely considered 'the first genocide of the twentieth century,' struck your own Armenian people," he said, referencing a 2001 declaration by Pope John Paul II and the head of the Armenian church.
