Judge whose family survived Armenian genocide: ‘They never smiled’

Pope Francis set off a diplomatic furor recently when he said what historians and most diplomats have been saying for almost a century now:

That Turkey participated in the first genocide of the 20th century by slaughtering 1.5 million Armenians in 1915.

Americans forget too easily. We allow our memories to be washed, from generation to generation, in the interests of commerce. Yet the dead can’t be coerced by capitalism.

Der-Yeghiayan’s grandfather, who had been living in the U.S. working in a steel plant, went back in 1919 to find those who were left.

“He never smiled,” said the judge. “As a boy, late at night, I would hear him from the other room, on his knees, praying for all their souls. But I never saw him smile once. My grandmother never smiled. All the Armenian people of the time, they lived, they survived, they raised families.

"But they never smiled. Ever.”

Tumblr communists will be the end of me, CHWO. I see these people run their mouthes on the glory of "real" communism and it disgusts me. My grandparents narrowly escaped ethnic genocide at the hands of the Pathet Lao during the Laotian civil war. Hmong people are still being headhunted by the LPDR because of the aid they gave US forces in trying to stop the communist coup. And this sort of thing isn't foreign to any communist regime, yet these kids still think their definition of communism works

Before you write that post about how “the only things white people ever invented are genocide and racism” Don’t forget that 22 out of the 31 worst genocides (ranked such by total deaths) were carried out by non-white nationalities and races.

So don’t go telling me the all genocides were carried out by white people.

The current ongoing persecution of Yazidis by ISIL, the Rwandan Genocide, the Rape of Nanking, the Cambodian Genocide, the Assyrian Genocide, the Red Terror (Ethiopia), the Armenian Genocide, the Nigerian Civil War, the Zunghar Genocide, the War in Darfur, Post 30 September Movement (Indonesia, publications about this genocide are banned in Indonesia), Greek Genocide, the Al-Anfal Campaign, the Massacre of the Hutus in Burundi, 1971 Bangladesh atrocities, the list goes on. 

(if you want the exact numbers just google list of genocides, there’s a Wikipedia page)

In exile, Syrian Armenians feel echoes of massacre

On the other side...

So the Armenian holocaust or genocide is suddenly very popular, and I am sure the content below will cause me to be unpopular. I’m not picking sides. I wasn’t there. I am not denying that a great many people were killed brutally. However, I have been given this bit to read:

[It was a civil war, not a genocide.] I know this personally because half my family was wiped out by the Armenians. Turkey was at war during that time. From the west it was invaded by the Greeks, Italians and the English then from the east it was invaded by Russians during that time the Armenians living in turkey turned against their neighbors, friends and joined forces with the Russians because the Russians promised them lands.

All the Turks did was retaliate and send them back to their homeland and a majority of them died during the migration. [The Armenians] brutally massacred half my family in the village of Subatan. My grandmother never saw her younger sister because they had to flee their village and during their escape from the Armenians she was lost. My grandmothers nephew found her 40 something years later and brought her to my grandmother to find out that my grandmother had passed away the previous day. This is just one of the tragedies lived by my family. My great uncle’s hand was cut off in front of his mother. His father’s hands were cut off and eyes were torn out.

It was not genocide. [Armenians] are making it to be genocide so they can claim lands from Turkey today. We lost far more people then they did during the war.

They [also] killed so many Azerbaycani people in their villages… For people who supposedly survived genocide you would think they would never commit one but they committed genocide to the Azeris not hundred years ago but in 1992… [The Turks] have evidence that it was not Genocide and are willing to present the documents to the world but [the Armenians] have no such evidence… [Turks] want the world to see the facts not go by word of mouth.. Germans at time were keeping the census for Turkey so we can’t lie about that. They had produced the amount of Armenians living in Turkey at the time it comes no where near what the Armenians are claiming to have lived in Turkey.

Unfortunately, what passes as history is not always right. [The Armenians] have better legislative lobbies then us. [The Turks] let it go years ago so future generations wouldn’t hate one another but apparently [the Armenians] haven’t. So now [the Turks] are coming forth but we started too late. [The Armenians] had planned this years ago. They were responsible for the death of 100,000 Turkish soldiers freezing to death and many more innocents dying.

Here is what a famous Armenian doctor wrote, “When I and Khachatur entered the house, our soldiers had nailed a 13-year-old Turkish child to the window.He was making much noise so Khachatur put a mother’s cut breast into his mouth.

I skinned his chest and belly. Seven minutes later the child died. As I used to be a doctor I was humanist and didn’t consider myself happy for what I had done to a 13-year-old Turkish child. But my soul was proud for taking 1 percent of vengeance of my nation.

Then Khachatur cut the body into pieces and threw it to a dog of same origin with Turks. I did the same to three Turkish children in the evening. I did my duty as an Armenian patriot.

Khachatur had sweated much. But I saw struggle of revenge and great humanism in his and other soldiers’ eyes. The next day we went to the church to clear our souls from what was done the previous day.

But we were table to clear Khojali from slops of 30 thousand people.

This text is from Zori Balayan’s book “Revival of our souls” from 1996 , pages 260-262.

i seriously wonder what the rest of the wizarding world thought about the U.K when Lord Voldemort rose to power a second time. Can you just visualize some magic world event and everyone’s gathered around making plans and someone goes “hang on a sec shouldn’t we send an invite to Britain??”

“Nah bro they’ve still got that genocidal civil war lead by a charismatic soulless dark wizard who is being challenged by the boy who lived and his two best friends happening idk if they’re up to participate in a world racing broomstick exhibition”

“alright we’ll put them down as a hard maybe”

You know, those people who say “our own people come first” and wish to close the borders to refugees, I gladly remind those people that during World War II masses of Europeans fled to Australia, Canada and the USA. This was simply because literally millions of people were murdered because of their religion, ethnicity, political ideology, sexual orientation and/or disability. All they wanted was safety.

Then I go on and compare that particular situation to what is happening in the Middle East and (Northern) Africa right now. The people who flee those areas right now just want safety because a genocide and civil war are going on. They’re not here to ‘steal’ your job or money. They just want to live. And suddenly these people I told this comparison to realize that what they’re saying sounds very selfish and rude. 

Why does everything have to be told from a Eurocentric or white perspective in order to make sense? Oh right, only the lived experiences of “people like us” matter.

My purpose in constructing the framework of the IRS [Institutionalised Riot System] was to draw attention away from the misguided conventional understandings of riots and to stress their organized character. Indeed, at the very heart of the process of riot production is the effort, in the explanation phase, to make it appear spontaneous, to hide its essential character as an organized form of violence. This masking is inherent in the connotation of the label itself, that of “riot,” which conjures up images of wild, disruptive, tumultuous, and violent crowd behavior, all of which does, in fact, ultimately enter into the picture.

At every stage, the perpetrators and explainers of the violence, from local politicians and gangsters to the press and heads of state, choose the terms that put them in the most favorable light and absolve them from responsibility. So, they prefer to call pogroms riots, genocide ethnic cleansing or mere unintentional massacres, and civil wars sectarian conflict or, even better, mere insurrections against the state. In fact, however, these are all fluid terms that cannot and should not be precisely defined. Collective violence moves from one form to the other, with the labelling itself being part of the process, designed to hide what is truly happening.

anonymous asked:

yo im from bosnia and let me tell you that i have at least been stopped 5 times by old dudes yelling at my stupid generation and explaining how communism (or should i say socialism) was AMAZING haha just a fun fact

Well it was far from perfect in the Former Yugoslavia, but I suppose it beat ultra-nationalism spiraling into fascism, civil war, and genocide. I’m very sorry that you guys having your own nations separate from each other had to come with that. I can see why the old dudes are a bit nostalgic for it considering what they went through when it collapsed!

Anyway I had a very weird dream when I came back home from trekking in the nature reserve earlier with my good friend. I remembered it started off by us still trekking through the reserve & bumping into a group of rebels with hunting dogs just like the scene from the Ugandan civil war, the Rwandan genocide & all. Thn I immediately took that friend of mine to safety because I sensed some danger. We hid together but continued observing the rebels. & then the rebels started to do their systematic killings & we witnessing the whole massacre with innocents running frantically past us.
