Time for Trump to Recognize the Armenian Genocide


People around the world paused to commemorate Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day on Tuesday, a remembrance of the more than 1.5 million Armenians who were systematically exterminated between 1915 and 1923 under the Ottoman Empire.

Thousands of people marched in Los Angeles, home to one of America’s largest Armenian communities, to demand recognition of the genocide. Yet in his commemorative statement, Trump only went as far as describing the events as a “mass atrocity”:

Today we commemorate the Meds Yeghern, one of the worst mass atrocities of the 20th century, when one and a half million Armenians were deported, massacred, or marched to their deaths in the final years of the Ottoman Empire. We recall the horrific events of 1915 and grieve for the lives lost and the many who suffered.

By international law, genocide is defined as an “intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group.” Although Trump’s statement recognizes the tragedy that took place, it missed an important detail, widely recognized by scholars, historians, and other experts — that what took place was not indiscriminate massacres, but a planned act of genocide.

This refusal to describe the events as a genocide is based on the U.S’s fear of upsetting the Turkish government, which vehemently denies allegations of genocide. Yet the U.S. is not alone. As of 2018, just 29 countries worldwide have officially recognized what happened in those years as a “genocide.”

Their stance is in stark contrast to a country like Germany, which has made the utmost efforts to heal the wounds of the Holocaust through commemorations and reparations. Meanwhile, Turkey continues to deny many of its crimes and even persecutes those who demand its recognition.

When former President Barack Obama came to power in 2009, he promised the more than one million Armenians living in the United States that he would recognize the genocide, although, like many of his foreign policy promises, it never materialized.

Yet recognition of the genocide remains an important conservative issue. The Armenian genocide was the first Christian genocide of the twentieth century and led to the displacement of millions of people from their Biblical homelands.

To this day, Turkey controls vast swaths of Armenian territory, while many of its Armenian inhabitants have been forced to convert to Islam. Christians are systematically persecuted, particularly those living in Kurdish territories. One recent example is the continued detention of American evangelical pastor Andrew Brunson on what appear to be phony terror-related charges.

Trump has styled himself as a defender of persecuted Christians around the world, and recognition of the genocide would go a long way to reinforcing his image as a protector of Christians in the Middle East.

A failure to recognize the past also serves as a partial endorsement of Turkey’s denial, under an Islamist regime whose leader Recep Erdogan has shown increasing aggression towards America with the threat of an “Ottoman slap” against U.S. troops in Syria.

Danny Tarkanian, an Armenian American endorsed by Trump in his race in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, has urged Trump to “set an example for the rest of world by formally acknowledging what truly happened.”

If we are to prevent the worst of human tragedies from occurring, the world must recognize genocide and call it what it is,” Tarkanian told Breitbart News. “Adolf Hitler used the Armenian Genocide as a justified precedent for his atrocities against millions when he said, ‘Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?‘”

Clearly defining past genocides is important to holding modern genocidal actors accountable. In 2016, former Secretary of State John Kerry rightly acknowledged that the Islamic State had committed acts of genocide against Assyrian Christians and Yazidis in Iraq and Syria. Yet why couldn’t the same recognition be given to Armenians?

Since coming to office last year, Trump has demonstrated considerable boldness with foreign policy issues ranging from North Korea to officially acknowledging Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Now, it is time for his administration to show further strength by acknowledging the tragic history of one of America’s most loyal immigrant communities.

Ethiopia Named Best Coffee Growing Country

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 11, 2014

The Top 10 Coffee-growing countries are:

1. Ethiopia

2. Kenya

3. Colombia

4. Guatemala

5. Costa Rica and Honduras

7. Indonesia

8. Rwanda, Panama and the United States

EthioCoffee

Ethiopia has been ranked number one in a list of the top ten coffee-growing nations throughout the world.

This is according to Thrillist, which asked leading figures from the global coffee industry to rate different countries with regard to the quality and success of their bean cultivation, with Ethiopia coming out on top with 25 points.

In 2013, the nation produced around 6.6 million bags of beans to be shipped overseas to traders like us at DRWakefield, allowing us to share the country’s quality coffee with roasters and other lovers of the aromatic beverage.

One of the poll’s judges, director of education at Cuvee Coffee and vice-chair of the Barista Guild of America Lorenzo Perkins, commented: “With sweet fruit notes and delicate floral aromas, it’s hard to imagine a coffee that tastes better than a finely washed Yirgacheffe or a big, sweet, naturally processed Sidama.

“Every time I drink coffee from Ethiopia, I can’t help but feel that this is how coffee is supposed to taste and everything else is an imitation.”

The East African nation stormed ahead of the rest of the top ten, with 13 more points than the country which took second place – Kenya.

Kenya won points for its “exquisite” coffee, as well as the “amazing quality” of the cups it produces.

Interestingly, just one of the 11 judges did not feature Ethiopia anywhere in their personal top three, showing the country’s prestige among experts.

Third place went to Colombia, which won itself a respectable ten points, while Guatemala came in fourth.

Joint fifth was awarded to Costa Rica and Honduras, which took three points apiece, indicating a somewhat significant leap between the quality of cups produced in these coffee-growing countries and those in the top three.

Seventh place went to Indonesia, while the remaining three nations – Rwanda, Panama and the United States – shared the number eight spot between them, with just one point each.

Coffee & The Black Madonna of Częstochowa Probably Saved Europe From The Ottoman Turks

My Note: Ethiopian New Year’s Day – September 11 / 12, 1683 – Battle of Vienna: In an open battle before Vienna, the Ottoman army was defeated, and the city escaped pillage and destruction. There is probably no book on the general history of Europe that does not record these events. The following article mentions that the word “Coffee” comes from the Turkish kahve, and ultimately from the Arabic qahwa. This is wrong, as it comes the name of the Ethiopian region, “Kaffa”. It’s a pity that neither the Turks nor the Arabs remember to properly pronounce the name “Kaffa”.

Coffee & Croissant

CoffeeCroissant6All coffee comes originally from Ethiopia where the coffee tree grows wild. From here it was imported into Yemen and drunk by Sufi mystics as a part of their religious practices. By the fourteenth-century the tree was cultivated by the Arabs and the bean exported to the rest of the Arab world from the port-city of Mocha. But it was once the Ottomans occupied the Arabian peninsula in the first part of the sixteenth-century that the habit of coffee drinking really took off. The first coffee-shop opened in Istanbul in 1554, and before long sipping coffee, eating cakes and socializing became a fashionable past-time. In 1583, the German botanist Leonhard Rauwulf mentioned the beverage – “black as ink, useful against numerous illnesses” – in an account from Aleppo in Syria. From the Ottoman empire the coffee-drinking habit was exported to Europe, together with the word itself. The first coffeehouses opened in Venice in 1645, in England in 1650 and in France in 1672. “Coffee” comes from the Turkish kahve, and ultimately from the Arabic qahwa.

Vienna, Austria, has its own and quite distinct café tradition. The Viennese drink their coffee with hot foamed milk and, just as in Turkey, it is served with a glass of cold water. In a Viennese Kaffeehaus it is possible to linger for hours, reading newspapers and eating pastries such as Apfelstrudel, an oblong piece of pastry filled with cooked apples. The first coffeehouse in Vienna was opened by a man called Jerzy Franciszek Kulczycki, a Polish officer in the Habsburg army that had helped liberate the city from the Ottoman siege of 1683. In recognition for his services, goes the story, Kulczycki was given a sack of coffee beans which the Ottomans had left behind. Since Kulczycki had spent two years as a Turkish prisoner of war, he was well acquainted with the habit and was quick to spot a business opportunity. Every year, coffeehouses in Vienna, such as Café Central and Café Prückel, used to put portraits of Kulczycki in their windows in recognition of his achievement.

There is a legend that the croissant – the flaky, crescent-shaped, pastry that French people in particular like to eat for breakfast – first was invented during the siege of Vienna. According to one account, the Ottomans were trying to tunnel into the city at night, but a group of bakers who were up early preparing their goods for the coming day, heard them and sounded the alarm. The croissant, invoking the crescent-shape so popular in Muslim countries, was invented as a way to celebrate the victory. Unfortunately, however, this story cannot be true. Baked goods in a crescent-shape – known as kipferl in German – were popular in Austria already in the thirteenth-century, and introduced to the French when a Viennese artillery officer, August Zang, opened a bakery in Paris in 1839. The kipferl was renamed croissant, “crescent,” because of its shape, and this is the name by which it has become famous around the world. The croissant has a Viennese connection, in other words, but no connection to the Ottoman siege. This has not stopped the story from spreading. In August, 2013, the Arabic newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported that fundamentalist Islamic forces in the rebel-held city of Aleppo, Syria, had issued a fatwa, a religious ban, against the eating of croissants since the baked good celebrates the European victory over Muslims.

Never Again, Never Forget: Remembering The Armenian Genocide

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 25, 2014

 
William Saroyan, an Armenian-American writer, wrote in his short story “The Armenian and the Armenian,” “I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are not more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia. See if you can do it.”
 
The timeline of the 20th century bears the scars of some of the ugliest and most brutal events in human history. World War I, the “war to end all wars,” proved anything but, as brilliant minds devised brilliant means of murder and discrimination-fueled crimes against humanity were committed indiscriminately, beginning with the Armenian genocide.
 
On April 24, 1915, hundreds of Armenian intellectuals were arrested and killed in Istanbul by Ottoman officials, marking the beginning of the first genocide of the 20th century. An estimated 1.5 million Armenians were killed by the Ottomans, if not straight away, then during mass deportations.
 
Hostility toward Armenians began to mount increasingly toward the end of the Ottoman Empire. In the late 19th century, Sultan Abdul Hamid II grew increasingly wary of Armenians’ demands for civil rights and instituted pogroms to quell their protests. In 1908, a group called Young Turks overthrew Hamid and re-instituted a constitution, instilling hope in the Armenians for reform.
 
However, the Young Turks had a vision to “Turkify” the empire. In 1914, they sided with Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire during World War I. Perceiving Armenians as a threat to the empire, the Young Turks were already skeptical of them. These suspicions were confirmed after Russian forces with Armenian soldiers defeated the Young Turks during a confrontation in the Caucasus.
 
As a result, the Young Turks launched a campaign against Armenians, thereby initiating the 1915-1923 Armenian genocide. In 1914, about 2 million Armenians lived in the empire. By 1922, less than 400,000 remained.
 
After the murders of Armenian intellectuals, the Ottomans next targeted Armenian men who were rounded up and forced to join the Ottoman army. Soon after, their arms were seized and those who had not already died from brutal labor were slaughtered.
 
Without any Armenian intellectuals and leaders to plant seeds of revolt in the minds of Armenians, and without the men to try and fight back, they were left weak and helpless. Accordingly, the Ottomans then turned to their last target: women and children. Women and girls were raped, beaten and some were forced into slavery to work in harems. Armenian children were kidnapped, forced into converting to Islam, and then given to Turkish families with new, Turkish names.
 
In an article from The Independent, Robert Frisk describes the methods Turks undertook to “Islamize” Christian Armenian children, writing that, “some of the small, starving inmates stayed alive only by grinding up and eating the bones of other children who had died.”
 
The largest number of deaths resulted from the mass deportations of Armenians out of Western Armenia (Eastern Anatolia). Ottoman officials ordered Armenians out of their homes under the guise that they were being resettled in non-military zones for their safety. In reality, they were sent on death marches across the Syrian Desert to concentration camps. Once food supplies finished, the Ottomans refused to provide more. They were not permitted to stop for a rest, and those too weak to continue were shot on the spot. Ottoman officials oftentimes forced Armenians into caravans to strip, then walk naked under the blistering sun, thereby hastening their deaths.
 
About 75 percent of Armenians on these marches died, and countless unburied bodies scattered the Syrian Desert. In fact, there were so many bodies that even today, in the Syrian town Deir ez Zor, the bones of Armenians can still be found by merely scratching at the surface of the desert sands.
 
The Armenians were also gassed. Crude gas chambers were created by herding them into caves and asphyxiating them by lighting bonfires at the entrances. Other atrocities that took place include burning Armenians alive, crucifying them, drowning them and throwing them off cliffs.
 
Adolf Hitler understood the importance of wide recognition of the past when he asked, in a speech impending the invasion of Poland, “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” The crimes of our past serve as warnings for our future. Well, just about a century later, we are speaking today of the genocide of Armenians. No matter how hard one tries to edit history or censor truth, the ghosts of our past will haunt us until they are resolved. The current population of the Armenian Diaspora is estimated to be around 10 million people, forming Armenian communities all around the world.
 
Saroyan concludes his poem, “Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”

Prominent Kabbalist: The Russian Invasion of Crimea is a sign of Impending Redemption
 
 
StSofiaOn Purim (Monday March 17th), Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch, Head of the Rabbinical Court of Jerusalem, allowed a secret to slip out. He peeled back the curtain and offered a peek into a tradition handed down from his grandfather, the Vilna Gaon, a prominent 18th-century Kabbalist:
 
Even though I am careful not to share the mysteries, I feel that this is something I am permitted to reveal..This was something Rabbi Isaac had received directly from those who heard it from the mouth of the Vilna Gaon, who said, shortly before his passing:
 
‘When you hear that the Russians have invaded Crimea, you will know that the bells of Redemption have begun to ring. When you hear that the Russians have reached Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey, as it is called today), you can already don Sabbath clothes and await the appearance of Moshiach.’
 
Last week the Russians invaded Crimea and the world slept… According to our tradition from the Vilna Gaon, this is a sign of impending redemption … Perhaps what the Gaon meant by ‘bells of the redemption’ is like a bell that signals the arrival of someone or something.”

ኢትዮጵያ የ Armenian Genocideን በይፋ መቀበል አለባት

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 30, 2011

 

..አ ከ1914 እስከ 1917 .ም ባለው ጊዜ፡ 1.5 ሚሊየን የሚሆኑ አርመናውያንን በቱርክ ምድር በመጨፍጨፍ ለመፍጀት የበቁት ኦቶማን ቱርኮች ይህን አሳዛኝ ታሪካቸውን ስህተት እንደሆነ ለመቀበል እስካሁን ድረስ ፈቃደኞች አይደሉም።

ከሁለት ሣምንታት በፊት በኢትዮጵያ አገራችን ሙስሊሞች የቅድስት አርሴማን ቤተክርስቲያን ለማቃጠልና ለማፍረስ በቅተው ነበር። ይህን አሳዛኝና ሰይጣናዊ የሆነ ድርጊት ቅዱሳን ዝም ብለው የሚያልፉት ይመስለናል? በፍጹም! ቅድስት አርሴማ ሥራዋን እየሰራች ነው፤ ያው የአርመኖች ጉዳይ ይህ ድርጊት ከተፈጸመ ከጥቂት ቀናት በኋላ ነበር በፈረንሳይና በእስራኤል የተቀሰቀሰው። በቱርክ ላይ እየመጣ ያለው መዘዝ ቀላል አይደለም፤ ስህተቱን፡ ኃጢአቱን ለመቀበል ፈቃደኛ ያልሆነ፡ ሊማርና ሊታረም ብሎም ለንስኅ ሊበቃ አይችልም፡ ሌላውን እየወነጀለ የዘራትን መርዝ መልሶ ይቅማታል እንጂ።

ኢትዮጵያ የአርመናውያንን እልቂት፡ አዎ! ጀነሳይድ ነበር ብላ የማወጅ ግዴታ አለባት።
