    Liberals can preach to me from their secular pulpits all they want about how Islam is a peaceful religion. This is yet another example of how its not. Chechnya has become a place of open genocide, particularly against the gay community (LGBT). According to the Daily Mail, Chechen authorities have told parents of gay children: Either you kill them, or we will. We constantly have to listen to the incessant meanderings of liberals of how evil the U.S. is toward gay people, but when you bring up the atrocities being perpetrated on gay populations in places such as Chechnya theyre...

    A Yazidi cemetery has been vandalized in the southeastern city of Şanlıurfa in Turkey, the Turkish news site Gazete Karınca reported. The graves in the Yazidi cemetery of Zewra village were damaged by “unknown individuals” on the night of the referendum on the Turkish constitution, April 16. The Yazidi Cultural Foundation condemned the attacks in a written statement, saying in part: “Just as ISIS [Islamic State] attacks graves and shrines and exhibits its inhumane character, those who attacked our dead also revealed their own mentality.”Yazidis, or Yezidis, are a Kurdish-speaking ethno-religious community indigenous to northern Mesopotamia. Their ancient faith, Yazidism, has a...

    April 24 marked the 102nd anniversary of the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Armenians around the world – as well those in the international community who care about human rights – remembered the 1.5 million victims of the genocide and paid homage to their legacy. The Armenian Genocide began on April 24, 1915, when the Ottoman Turkish government ordered the deportation of approximately 250 Armenian intellectuals.In the meantime, Turkey has been in a period of political turmoil – particularly following last year’s abortive coup. Since then, the mass dismissal of academics from universities seems to have become the norm in Turkey. According...

    Yes, until World War II, the Medz Yeghern of 1915 was unprecedented not only in the history of our people, but in the entirety of humankind.

    Today, we remember and honor the memory of those who suffered during the Meds Yeghern, one of the worst mass atrocities of the 20thcentury. Beginning in 1915, one and a half million Armenians were deported, massacred, or marched to their deaths in the final years of the Ottoman Empire. I join the Armenian community in America and around the world in mourning the loss of innocent lives and the suffering endured by so many. As we reflect on this dark chapter of human history, we also recognize the resilience of the Armenian people. Many built new lives in the United...

    Today, members of the California Legislature commemorated the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, even as the United States of America continues to turn a blind eye to the genocide of 1.5 million Armenians. We commemorate the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide to remember the 1.5 million souls lost and to celebrate the Armenians contributions to California, stated Assembly member Adrin Nazarian. Through vigilance and education we can banish genocide to our history books. Armenian-Americans have not only survived, they have thrived and enriched the fabric of our communities. The genocide is about real people and real stories. For me...

    the Armenian genocide, an event Turkey does not recognize. One and a half million people were killed in the most brutal fashion, and I knew nothing about it, and thats not uncommon ... The fact that this Armenian genocide happened and no one was ever held accountable may have provoked other genocides since. At least 26 countries recognize the deaths as genocide, but in Turkey it is reportedly illegal to bring up the event.

    The new Christian Bale film 'The Promise' won't be out in theaters until Friday, but it's IMDB rating has already been tanked by tens of thousands of one-star reviews. In the film, set at the end of the Ottoman Empire, Bale plays an Associated Press reporter covering the Armenian genocide. While the atrocities are largely considered to be the first genocide of the 20th century, Turkey still refuses to use the term in reference to the mass killing. After hearing the topic of the film, trolls organized on a Turkish message board similar to 4Chan or Reddit to protest the...

    Obamas national security advisor is a liar -- and possibly a felon.Former President Obamas National Security Advisor Susan Rice asked for the names of Trump transition officials to be unmasked and made public in raw intelligence files, according to media reports, a move apparently carried out to harm the incoming Trump administration. As recently as March 22, Rice denied knowing anything about the intelligence reports. In an appearance on PBS Newshour, she said pretty definitely, I know nothing about this. The new news reports paint Rice as a liar. The evidence we know about in the Trump-Russia saga so far...

    Okay, this is pure gold I gotta share. I know its Sunday but this needs to be shared especially with atheists and skeptics who ridicule the faithful, say Christians are menace, a nuisance and so on. You think those of us who seek the lord and who are Christian are a threat equal to Islamic jihad? THINK AGAIN... This was shared with me by a friend. On a satanic forum called the 600 club, the satanists have basically advocated that all the homeless and disabled are parasites. For the homeless, the alternatives to mandatory excution are either A.

    Pope Francis on Monday begged forgiveness for the "sins and failings of the church and its members" during Rwanda's 1994 genocide, and told Rwanda's president that he hoped his apology would help the country heal. In an extraordinary statement after Francis' meeting with Rwandan President Paul Kagame, the Vatican acknowledged that the church itself bore blame, as well as some Catholic priests and nuns who "succumbed to hatred and violence, betraying their own evangelical mission" by participating in the genocide.
