The caption beneath this Ruptly TV video says:
Around 1,000 members of pro-Turkish organisations to the streets of Berlin, Saturday, to protest against Bundestag’s vote on a resolution regarding the recognition of the Armenian genocide.
SOT, Yuksel Arslan, member of Turkish association (German): “Parliaments are not courts and parliament is no court. Deputies are neither judges nor historians. We reject politicians judging us on our coexistence and Turkish history. Turkish history cannot be written by politicians. Turkish history has to be placed in Turkish school books correctly. We demand from all the deputies of the parliament to be fair and that they cannot judge upon historical events.”
Andrew Bostom has written and spoken at length about one among many of Islam’s most prominent atrocities in its bloody and violent history: The genocidal slaughter of more than one-million Armenians during World War I.
On April 24, 2015, the 100th year date marking the beginning of the genocide, Andy spoke to Frank Gaffney, former Undersecretary of Defense in the Ronald Reagan Administration, and founder of the Center for Security Policy about that slaughter. The Turks have relentlessly worked to cover it up and eradicate it from history’s record as an act of genocide. You can listen to Andy’s radio presentation on Mr. Gaffney’s Secure Freedom Radio program by clicking here.
From Andy’s PJ Media essay of April 21, 2015:
“More than one million Armenian city dwellers and peasants were savagely slaughtered and made to choke quietly on their own blood…The executioners were deaf to the crying and weeping of these wretched victims, even to their pleas to shoot them so that they might escape the torment: the order had come from on high and the jihad against the Armenians truly had been proclaimed”
—Grigoris Balakian, from his 1914-1918 eyewitness travelogue account, Armenian Golgotha, first published in 1922
The second great wave of Jihad officially ended when Mustafa Kemal Attaturk abolished the Caliphate in 1924 – but unfortunately for the Armenians not before this horrible mass murder was committed by the remnants of the Ottoman Empire.
If you haven’t been keeping up with current events, we are now in the third great wave of Jihad. And Turkey’s current leader, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is another jihadi.
