    The Turkish foreign ministry has issued a rebuttal of U.S. President Donald Trump’s statement on the Armenian genocide. “We reject the inaccurate expressions and the subjective interpretation of history in the written statement by Mr. Donald Trump, President of the USA, released on 24 April 2018 regarding the events of 1915,” it said. “In this context, we remind President Trump that during the same period more than 500.000 Muslims were slaughtered as a result of the events in which Armenian insurgents took part.” It said that Turkey was offering to establish a Joint Historical Commission to research the historical period,...

    If President Trump recognizes the Armenian genocide by specifically using the word “genocide” in his April 24 proclamation, he would send a strong signal to the world that America is unequivocally on the side of historical truth and the protection of innocent life. He would be only the second president, after Ronald Reagan, to do so boldly and officially. Every year on April 24 there are memorial services, marches, and media reminders of the genocide of 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire. The beginning of the massacres is marked on that date in 1915, when hundreds...

    Israel's Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef on Sunday condemned a Syrian regime-suspected chemical weapons attack in Eastern Ghouta's Douma district which left at least 70 civilians dead and hundreds wounded. "I've said it before and I’ll say it again: there is a cruel genocide happening in Syria against women and children with weapons of mass destruction," Yosef said. Recalling the genocide Jews were subjected to, Yosef went on to say that it was a "moral obligation not to remain silent and to try to stop the massacre".

    In Defense of Christians (IDC), the nation's leading advocacy organization for Christians and religious minorities in the Middle East, condemns the use of chemical weapons against civilians by the regime of Bashar al-Assad. On Saturday, April 6th, Syrian opposition activists, rescue workers and medics reported that more than 40 people were killed in a chemical attack on Douma, a rebel-stronghold in the Eastern Ghouta region of Damascus. "Attacking innocent civilians in Syria with chemical weapons is a gross violation of humanity and utterly immoral," stated IDC's Executive Director Philippe Nassif on April 12th. "All parties who were involved must be...

    Moscow, April 13, Interfax - A prompt decision needs to be made on the burial of the remains of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin and on the transfer of the remains of Joseph Stalin to Georgia, Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Chechnya, said. "If I was asked, I would make this decision today, without waiting until tomorrow. Why torture Lenin's dead body, clean it constantly, keep this mummy? Who needs it? He is not a holy person. I am firmly convinced that Lenin's remains should be buried and Stalin's remains should be sent to his homeland, to Georgia," he said in...

    Warning: this column contains graffiti copied from the padded cells of the left. Some content may be disturbing. Chloë Sevigny is an actress. Actor, I should say, since she seems to be exquisitely “woke.” (On the chance that Sevigny is super-duper woke, I’ll apologize now for having the presumption to use feminine pronouns.) Anyway, Sevigny -- an astute observer of relative melanin levels among various populations -- has determined that there are “too many white people” in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn. Or maybe in the world. What’s more, that surfeit of caucasians isn’t terribly interesting. Sevigny, you see,...

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to recognize the mass murders of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman government in 1915 as genocide. In the past, the Foreign Ministry had assessed that such a move was likely to lead to the expulsion of Israeli Embassy staff in Ankara and the recalling of TurkeyÂ’s ambassador from Israel. While Turkey denies that the mass killings constitute genocide, some 29 countries and 48 of the 50 U.S. states have officially recognized them as such. ErdanÂ’s call to recognize the Armenian genocide follows a war of words between Netanyahu and Turkish President Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan, in...

    <p>The number of unarmed citizens (262,000,000*) slaughtered by tyrannical (mostly leftist, Marxist, fascist) governments during the 20th century would come pretty close to wiping out the entire U.S. population.</p> <p>Our founders understood the danger of runaway government power and tyranny, thus the constitution guaranteeing our God-given liberty and severely restricting the powers of government. And they included the 2nd amendment for good reason. An armed citizenry guarantees it stays that way.</p>

    Australia’s Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton says it’s “unquestionable” some white South African farmers are being persecuted and his department is looking into specific cases. Mr. Dutton also told Sky News Australia that no one in the government has retracted his offer to help white South African farmers who are eligible to be resettled under Australia’s refugee program, despite the South African government claiming Foreign Minister Julie Bishop had done so. On the contrary, he maintains that his department is “looking into” specific cases and Australia will do what it can for people in “desperate” situations. Mr. Dutton’s comments follow...

Currently, the Holodomor in Ukraine is recognized as genocide in the US states of Washington, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and now Massachusetts.

    Geneva Canton Court has approved the building of an Armenian Genocide Monument. The monument will be opened on the 103rd anniversary of the genocide. The Geneva Canton Court has said the final word on the discussions on the monument the public wanted to erect in Geneva for years to commemorate the victims of the Armenian Genocide, but were prevented by Turkey’s diplomatic pressure. The court ruled that the appeals to prevent the building of the monument are baseless and that the monument can be erected inside the Trembley Park in Geneva. The monument project prepared by Parisian Armenian Melik Ohanyan...

The statement warned against an ethnic cleansing against Kurds in Rojava and Southern Kurdistan and stressed that Turkey’s attacks against Afrin and Shengal are attacks against the independence of Syria and Iraq.

It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. The 100 million city: is 21st century urbanisation out of control? Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That’s why we call it civilisation....

    Iraqi Archbishop Bashar Warda made the following observation during a recent speech: “Having faced for 1,400 years the slow-motion genocide that began long before the ongoing ISIS genocide today, the time for excusing this inhuman behavior and its causes is long since passed.” That Muslims have cleansed non-Muslim peoples by the sword since the seventh century to the present is of course factually well-documented. But what of the more subtle “slow-motion genocide”? How does that work? The answer is connected to another question: Why did so many non-Muslims become Muslim in the first place? Many modern day Muslims and Western...
