Those of you who follow world news probably remember the “verdict” of the French Parliament last month. Officially accepting “The Armenien Massacre” of 1917 as an historical fact.
The claim is that during WWI, the Turks have slain about 2.2 million Armenian civilians, taking advantage of the combats taking place in Russia.
I have no links to disprove this fact at the moment - I can find some if I am challenged - but there are several points I feel compelled to object to:
The official records claim the Armenian Population in Eastern Anatolia at the time was about 1.5 million, rendering it completely impossible for any living creature to kill 2.2 million Armenians.
There was a major war going on atr the time, and the Armenians livin there wanted to form a country of their own, so they started an uprising which wasnt accepted peacefully by te Turkish potpulation living on the exact same land, and the outcome was the death of a couple of millions - OF BOTH RACES! A war, yes ; but a massacre WTF???
There is still an Armenian minority living in Turkey, and we can get along very well! No Turkish citizen of Armenian origin needs to hide his/her identity, no obstacles in any Armenian to practice his/her religion and/or traditions. No obstacle against any Armenian being very succesful in the business or the intellectual environments in the country. No hostility between the Turks and the Armenians living in Turkey. So, WHO THE FUCK DO THE SEVERAL HUNDRED MEMBERS OF THE FRENCH PARLIAMENT THINK THEY ARE, TO GIVE THEMSELVES THE RIGHT TO TRY TO OFFICIALLY ALTER HISTORY?
