  • Turkish Leaders Invoke Crusades, Inquisition in Reaction to Pope’s Armenian ‘Genocide’ Comment

    As Turkey’s leaders fume over Pope Francis’ use of the term “genocide” to describe mass killings of Armenian Christians a century ago, the country’s top religious figure invoked the crusades and said the furor would accelerate a controversial scheme to turn Istanbul’s most famous historical church into a mosque.“The statement that the Catholic world’s spiritual leader delivered three days ago, saying Armenians had been subjected to a genocide, is extremely spectacular,” Mefail Hizli, the mufti of Ankara, said in a written statement, Hurriyet daily reported.Hizli said the pontiff’s comment “reflected a modern color of the crusader wars launched in these...

    Nearly 1.5 million Armenians died at the hands of the Ottoman Empire in 1915, during World War I. Turks by and large do not believe mass killings were planned. CUNGUS, Turkey — The crumbling stone monastery, built into the hillside, stands as a forlorn monument to an awful past. So, too, does the decaying church on the other side of this mountain village. Farther out, a crevice is sliced into the earth, so deep that peering into it, one sees only blackness.

    The Imaginative Conservative ^ | April 15, 2015 | Stephen Masty
    Pope Francis, recently referring to horrific slaughter of Armenians a century ago, set off a diplomatic incident with Turkey when he used the word genocide.* Considering that the Vatican lobbies the Turkish Government for better treatment of its small Christian minority, this is a brave and perhaps costly decision. The controversy holds an unexpected lesson for American conservatives.Armenians call it Metz Yegern, or The Great Evil. In a level-headed article, an Armenian English-language daily wrote: “The killings are recognized as genocide by a number of countries around the world, but Turkey’s allies Italy and the United States have avoided...

    Pope Francis’ remarks urging the world to recognize the slaughter of Armenians by the Ottoman Turks a century ago as “the first genocide of the 20th century” drew unanimous praise Sunday from several prominent leaders of Fresno’s Armenian community. “Today’s papal remarks speak from our heart in not only advocating for Armenians but also recognizing that atrocities like genocide remain a point of concern,” said Berj Apkarian, who was named an Honorary Consul of the Republic of Armenia in October. “Denial of the Armenian genocide is the foundation for current and future genocides,” Apkarian added. “Genocide is continuing in the...

    One hundred years ago, the dying Ottoman empire attempted to put down an uprising of Armenian Christians as world war broke out around the globe. Over 1.5 million Armenians died in the conflict, a crime which has often been called the first genocide of the 20th century — but not usually by diplomats or world leaders with ties to modern Turkey. Ankara has demanded complicity in their dodge of the Armenian genocide, and will only allow that a lot of people died in 2015 but that the slaughter doesn’t meet the legal definition of genocide. Pope Francis refused to...

But while ISIS is unquestionably a nightmare-come-true, when it comes to the alarming increase in Christian persecution worldwide the “Islamic State” is just the tip of the iceberg. As WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine reveals in its powerfully moving April issue, “PERSECUTION RISING,” today’s treatment of Christians in a great many nations is disturbingly reminiscent of the brutal persecution of the early followers...

The UN sent investigators to Syria and Iraq last year after the terrorist group started to pummel through Syria. The evidence they found since last June led them to believe the abuses “may amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.”

Rep. Trey Gowdy’s decision to seek a review of the materials, first highlighted in a series of Washington Times stories last week, carries consequences for the 2016 election in which Mrs. Clinton is expected to seek the presidency. It could also move the committee to examine the strained relationship...

In a statement released last week, the organization Genocide Watch again sounded the alarm surrounding the ongoing, regime-linked preparations to exterminate minority Afrikaner farmers. South Africa’s credit rating, meanwhile, was downgraded again last month to barely above “junk” status. Parliament recently descended into a brawl after a politician called the president a "criminal and a thief." As the warning signs...

Unlike Scalise, Sanger did not unwittingly speak to a group with a link (direct or indirect) to the KKK through a member. No, Margaret knowingly went directly to the Real McCoy—straight to the dragon’s mouth. In May 1926, a hopeful spring day,...

    Jurgen Todenhofer, the first Western reporter to embed with Islamic State fighters and not be killed in the process, spoke to Al Jazeera about his time with the terror group. Todenhofer lived side by side with the jihadist fighters for ten days in the Islamic State-stronghold city of Mosul, Iraq. He was accompanied only by his son, who served as his cameraman. “I always asked them about the value of mercy in Islam,” but “I didn’t see any mercy in their behavior,” explained Todenhofer. He added, “Something that I don’t understand at all is the enthusiasm in their plan of...

    Islamist terror group Boko Haram has kidnapped hundreds of women and children at a school following a massive attack on the town of Baga earlier this month, according to an eyewitness. 'Boko Haram took around 300 women and kept us in a school in Baga', one unnamed woman was quoted as saying by Amnesty International in a statement. 'They released the older women, mothers and most of the children after four days but are still keeping the younger women.' Meanwhile, Nigeria's president has made a surprise visit to the heartland of the Boko Haram movement to meet survivors of the...

Survivors described the Islamic State setting up efficient killing teams and massacring everyone while shouting “Allahu Akbar”. “For five kilometers (three miles), I kept stepping on dead bodies until I reached Malam Karanti village, which was also deserted and burnt,” one survivor said. There’s a word for that. It’s genocide. The Islamic State...

    The authors of a new book on how we can save our century point out that the culture of death that allows abortion also leads to genocide. Suzanne Hamner has an interesting piece over at BarbWire about the book, which we have reproduced in part. A link to the full article is included. Hamner writes, Would you say that mankind is progressing, growing wiser with the passing of time and getting better or would you say that mankind is regressing, growing ever more destructive with the passing of time and becoming worse than in previous historical times? If you said...

    Clinic worker Jenny Higgins says that wealthy women get better abortion care than poor women do. She says: “… We almost never service wealthier women at the clinics where I worked. In the southeastern clinic, which was in an urban area, the majority of the clients were African-American….. [Wealthy women] are more likely to have access to higher quality, private abortion care, either due to their insurance plans or because they can afford to pay out-of-pocket for such services.” …. “Even though I prided myself on providing attentive and empathic care to the patients with whom I worked, the clinic...

    Genocide: [T]he systematic destruction of all or a significant part of a racial, ethnic, religious or national group. [T]he deliberate killing of a large group of people… Just like the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide, the Rwandan genocide, and Pol Pot’s Killing Fields, there’s no question that abortion is a deliberate killing and a systematic destruction. It is intentional and it happens again and again and again, day after day after day. Each day in America, abortion clinics receive two people at a time. They destroy one of them with violent instruments or poisonous chemicals, and then, the woman is released...

    In an article in Florida Today, abortionist Patricia Baird-Windle had some things to say about her work: I now consider abortion to be a major blessing, and to be a sacrament in the hands of women….At the very crucible of the sacrament of abortion work is the sentence in a letter written to me by a woman when I retired, and that is some women have an abortion out of love for the baby. She identifies herself as “pro-abortion.” So what exactly is this “sacrament” that is done out of “love”? A while ago I interviewed Catherine Anthony Adair, a...

They were at that moment being led by Islamic State group gunmen toward a checkpoint on the edge of town. "If you don't hear from us, you'll find our bodies near the checkpoint," Khalef said they told him in the calls.
