Syria Recognizes Arminian Genocide By Ottoman Empire

File image

On February 13, the People’s Council of Syria passed a decree officially recognizing the Arminian genocide by the Ottoman Empire.

The decree, that was passed unanimously, condemns the genocide and calls it “one of the cruelest and most horrifying crimes against humanity.” The decree also condemns any attempt to deny the genocide.

“The People’s Assembly of the Syrian Arab Republic at its meeting on Thursday 13-2-2020 recognizes and condemns the crime of genocide of the Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the twentieth century as it condemns any attempt by any party to deny this crime and distort the historical truth about it,” the decree reads.

Stressing the important of the new decree, Hammouda Sabbagh, speaker of the People’s Council, said that humanity has a duty to recognize and condemn the Arminian genocide.

Hinting at the increasing Turkish intervention in Syria, Sabbagh said that the resilient of Syrian soldiers has prevented what he called a “new Ottoman monster” from appearing.

1.5 million Armenians within the Ottoman Empire, most of whom were citizens, were systematically murdered by the Ottoman government from approximately 1914 to 1923. To this day, Turkey denies this.

Many of the genocide survivors escaped to northern Syria, where they formed large communities. Armenian Syrians was badly affected by the war in the country, especially the communities of Aleppo, al-Haskaah and Lattakia.

Syria’s decision to recognize the Arminian genocide is most likely linked to the recent escalation with Turkey. Ankara increased its support for the remaining militants in the country’s northwestern region and even threatened the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with military force.

Rape your blind whore mom.Stinky son.


Symbolic tit for tat? Those are usually a sign of impotent weakness. Let your artillery, airforce and TOS-1 systems express your true feelings towards that pig Erdogan instead. (no insults to pigs intended.


Barba, Arminians?! The devil it’s on the details.


They should have done that years ago to be honest.

The whole world knows the Turks are the most barbaric humanoids on the planet.


1# The Armenian Genocide. The total number of people killed as a result has been estimated at between 1 and 1.5 million. The Armenian Genocide is acknowledged to have been one of the first modern genocides,and it is the second most-studied case of genocide after the Holocaust! To date, 23 countries have officially recognized the mass killings as genocide, a view which is shared by most genocide scholars and historians.

2# The Assyrian genocide (also known as Sayfo or Seyfo, Syriac: ܩܛܠܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܣܘܪܝܝܐ or ܣܝܦܐ) David Gaunt accepts the figure of 275,000 deaths as reported at the Treaty of Lausanne and ventures that the death toll would be around 300,000 because of uncounted Assyrian-inhabited areas, leading to the elimination of half of the Assyrian nation.Gaunt describe how the perpetrators went to weigh village by village! In 2007, the International Association of Genocide Scholars (IAGS) reached a consensus that “the Ottoman campaign against Christian minorities of the Empire between 1914 and 1923 constituted a genocide against Armenians, Assyrians, and Pontian and Anatolian Greeks.

3# The Greek genocide. Part of which is known as the Pontic genocide, was the systematic ethnic cleansing of the Christian Ottoman Greek population from its historic homeland in Asia Minor, central Anatolia,Pontus, and the former Russian Caucasus province of Kars Oblast during World War I and its aftermath (1914–23). It was instigated by the government of the Ottoman Empire against the Greek population of the Empire and it included massacres, forced deportations involving death marches, summary expulsions, arbitrary executions, and destruction of Christian Orthodox cultural, historical and religious monuments. According to various sources, several hundred thousand Ottoman Greeks died during this period.

4# The Kurdish genocide. The Dersim massacre took place in 1937 and 1938 in Dersim Province (now known as Tunceli Province), Turkey. It was the outcome of a Turkish military campaign against the Dersim Rebellion by local ethnic minority groups against Turkey’s Resettlement Law of 1934. Thousands of Alevi Kurds and Zazas died and many others were internally displaced due to the conflict. On 23 November 2011, Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gave an apology for the Dersim operation, describing it as “one of the most tragic events of our recent history”.

5# The Bulgarian ethnic cleansing , (genocide). After the end of the 2nd Balkan war Turkish Ottomans commited ethnic cleansing against the Bulgarian population of eastern Thrace.

Batak massacre :The murder of the leader Trendafil Kerelov was particularly violent and was described by a witness – his son’s wife Bosilka:

“My father in law went to meet the Bashi-Bаzouk when the village was surrounded by the men of Ahmet Aga, who said that he wanted all the arms laid down.

Trendafil went to collect them from the villagers. When he surrendered the arms, they shot him with a gun and the bullet scratched his eye.

Then I heard Ahmet Aga command with his own mouth for Trendafil to be impaled and burnt.

The words he used were “Shishak aor” which is Turkish for “to put on a skewer (as a shish kebab).
After that, they took all the money he had, undressed him, gouged his eyes, pulled out his teeth and impaled him slowly on a stake, until it came out of his mouth.

Then they roasted him while he was still alive.

He lived for half-an-hour during this terrible scene. At the time, I was near Ahmet Aga with other Bulgarian women.

We were surrounded by Bashi-Bozouk, who had us surrounded, and forced us to watch what was happening to Trendafil.“ One of her children, Vladimir, who was still a baby at his mother’s breast, was impaled on a sword in front of her eyes.

“At the time this was happening, Ahmet Aga’s son took my child from my back and cut him to pieces, there in front of me.

The burnt bones of Trendafil stood there for one month and only then they were buried.”Januarius MacGahan, a journalist of the New York Herald and the London Daily News wrote of the terrible happenings after his visitation to Batak with Eugene Schuyler.

They describe the burned and destroyed city with the stench of the rotting of thousands of piled dismembered corpses and skeletons of the innocent victims including young women, children and unborn babies torn out from the wombs of their pregnant mothers.

The Allies of World War I condemned the Ottoman government-sponsored massacres as crimes against humanity.

Time to recognize the war on Syria is also a genocide. Over 500,000 dead, mostly civilian.

All for regime change plotted by Saudis, Americans, Turks, French, British, and isrealis.


mostly at the behest of israel and that is precisely why the illegal settlement israel needs to be terminated and the occupying jews sent onto their diaspora 2.0
