VIDEO of the smaller of two marches in ‘Little Armenia’ in Los Angeles:
April 24th, 1915 is known as ‘Red Sunday’. Hundreds of male Armenian leaders were arrested, deported and or killed by the Ottoman Turks in what marked the beginning of the Armenian genocide. Over 1.5 million Christian Armenians were brutally murdered and or sent on a death march into the Syrian desert. Hundreds of thousands of Christian Assyrians and Orthodox Greeks were also slaughtered.
The collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1924 was the end of the last caliphate. The final caliphate is rising as Muslims flood into Western countries bringing Islamic terror with them.
Armenians who survived by a miracle from God lost family, land and everything they owned. Many fled as refugees to Aleppo, Syria and Lebanon which were under French mandate at the time (beginning in 1920).
Turkey continues to deny the Armenian Genocide to this day. They claim that Armenians AND Turks died as a part of World War One. 29 countries recognize the genocide, however; the U.S. still does not. It is time for the United States to officially recognize this Genocide.
As an Armenian who personally lost family at the hands of Turks, I urge President Trump to use the term ‘Genocide’ because that is exactly what it was. Turkey should also be expelled from NATO. They are no ally to the U.S. or the Western world for that matter.
