GENOCIDE, GENOCIDE, GENOCIDE
Zori Balayan, who is known by his chauvinist point of view and ambassador of Great Armenia ideology, blamed Turks with incredible things in his book “Ocag”. He stated that Turks made genocide against Armenians and Armenians would never forget that, also, called all Armenians for revenge.
Balayan, also, mentions about a sort of Armenian sickness: Sickness that is seen in victims of genocide… the psychological status of downtrodden and mistreated Armenians. This is an infectious disease and only valid for Armenians.
In the Soviet Union era sickness completed its hidden period and after independency it spread out rapidly among Armenians. Armenians say that the treatment of this sickness can only be possible after the revenge of events on 1915, having Kars, Iğdır, Erzurum, Sivas and Trabzon within Armenia territories and Armenian flag on top of Mountain Ararat, also, it is necessary to do everything to make this treatment.
To achieve this aim they wrote a prescription in which they stated, “gaining international recognition of the Armenian Genocide perpetrated” in the 11th term of Declaration of Independence. Although Levon Ter-Petrosyan, the first President of Armenia (1991-1998), didn’t apply this prescription that much, however, Robert Kocharian personally interested in this subject as soon as he was in power and has been making effort both in domestic and foreign policy for treatment of this “Armenian sickness”.
By the support of Armenian government National Academy of Sciences of Armenia and World Armenian Organization making effort on preparing “Evidence File” regarding so-called Armenian genocide for gaining international recognition. For this purpose World Armenian Organization summon a conference at the hall of National Academy of Sciences of Armenia on the date of May 6 – 7, 2004 named “Factor of Genocide in the issue of normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations”.
There are no political party, non-governmental organization or academician in Armenia that has courage to deny “genocide”.
Otherwise, it is impossible for him to be active within territories of Armenia. The leader of the National Democratic Union of Armenia, Vazgen Manukyan, commented on the relations between Turkey and Armenia to İA REGNUM News Agency. Manukyan blamed Turkey with “genocide”, demanded about opening the borders, also, highlighted the importance of propaganda activities regarding international recognition of Armenian genocide.
Andranic Migranyan, a well-known Armenian historian, shares the same point of view with him. In the press conference on May 8, 2004 he notified that he didn’t approve the statements of President Robert Kocharian regarding so-called Armenian genocide, which was “For us the recognition of the genocide is important.
The demands of land and indemnity are claims of Diaspora not Armenian state.” He particularly emphasized on not to withdraw the claim of recognition of “genocide” by Turkey and the propaganda of “genocide” by Armenian government even if diplomatic relations were established between two states, the border gates were opened and the economic relations improved.
In a period that Armenian government speeds up the work about recognition of so-called genocide, some political and economic circles in Turkey supports the opening of border gates and stressing that such a case would be a pretext for the normalization of relations between two countries. These circles do not take the opponent policy of Armenia towards Turkey into consideration and forget disclaim of Armenia regarding Turkish territorial integrity, demands about recognition of so-called genocide by Turkey, also, land and indemnity demands
