BUSINESS ON FALSIFICATIONS(23.04.2015)

Business on Falsifications

One hundred years ago - on 24 April 1915, the leadership of the Ottoman Empire issued a decree ordering the elimination of Armenian secret organizations that were openly engaged in subversive and terrorist activities. As many as 2,345 Armenian committee members were arrested. The reason for such an action was another uprising in the province of Van, where the Armenian terrorists, killing all Muslims that lived in and around the city, took the side of Russia which fought against Turkey. The fact that now this date is celebrated as the anniversary of "Armenian genocide" can surely be called the greatest trick of world historiography, as the absurdity and paradoxicality ...


DEMILITARIZATION OF THE GENDARMERIE: AN IMPORTANT STEP IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING RID OF THE TUTELAGE(15.01.2015)

Demilitarization of the Gendarmerie: An Important Step in the Process of Getting Rid of the Tutelage

Today an important issue is discussed in the Parliament’s agenda in the context of the Internal Security Bill: Connecting the Gendarmerie to the Ministry of Interior. I think that this is an important step in the process of getting rid of the military tutelage. I congratulate our government and those who contributed.Turkey is a country where has been very exposed to the military tutelage. We lived a serial of modern and postmodern coups, memorandums, and coup attempts beginning from 1960 to 2007 as the last act. These were the processes that each democracy was interrupted, thousands of innocent people were exposed to tortures and unlawful proceedings, destroyed families, ...


REVISITING THE 30TH AUGUST AT THE LIGHT OF THE 15TH MAY(7.09.2013)

Revisiting the 30th August at the light of the 15th May

The commemorations of the victory on August 30 are widespread every year, but too few Turks know today that August 30 does not mean only a military success, but also a victory against the war crimes of the Greek army and its Armenian volunteers. Swiss journalist Noëlle Roger observed around 1930 that there was no plaque, and even no design to unveil a plaque, to mark the Greek atrocities.[1] Nevertheless, these atrocities started since the very first day of the Greek landing: May 15, 1919.Crimes from the beginningThe crimes were so obvious that Captain Rollin, head of the French Navy Intelligence service, sent, in addition to his regular reports, a spe...


METHODOLOGY OF TANER AKÇAM(11.12.2012)

Methodology of Taner Akçam

The expanded English edition of German sociologist Taner Akçam’s last book, The Young Turks’ Crime against Humanity. The Armenian Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing in the Ottoman Empire, was published last April. To analyze all the distortions, falsifications and other flaws of this book would mean writing a whole volume. However, some significant examples can be provided here.Mr. Akçam alleges (p. 203) that “the clearest statement that the aim of the government’s policies toward the Armenians was annihilation is found in a cable of 29 August 1915 from Interior minister Talat Pasha to the province of Ankara.” In fact, this telegram is mostly a list of interdictions of any vio...


NO STATE CAN FIGHT AGAINST THE SOCIOLOGICAL FACTS AND WIN ANY ETHNIC OR CULTURAL WAR(21.07.2012)

No State Can Fight Against the Sociological Facts and Win Any Ethnic or Cultural War

In Türkiye, neither foreign intelligence agencies such as Mossad, the CIA, the BND that stir up the ethnic war, nor MİT and the General Staff can fight against the sociological realities. In 1826, Sultan Mahmud II’s going through the central system in Ottoman Empire under the effect of his French mother and his wife, Balkan and Middle Eastern nations in particular, the abolition of the autonomy of the Kurdish state, the introduction into circulation extreme Turkish nationalism virus copied from France, illiteracy, discrimination, racism, the culture of living by leaning against the state and parasitism, laziness and identity crisis are the ...
