Dear Congressman:

 

The news that some of lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs introduced a resolution calling for the recognition of the so-called genocide of Armenians during the First World War has upset us. We would like to stress the negative impacts of this decision that serves as a misleading propaganda tool of Armenian associations and lobbies. First of all, this resolution is of a nature that will harm USA-Turkey and USA-Azerbaijan relationships. Moreover, it is certain that this resolution will prepare a convenient medium for Armenian terrorist organizations like ASALA to restart their violent activities, and your ratification of this proposal and making it a law will encourage Armenia to follow even more aggressive and expansionist policies and lay grounds of new invasions of other territories. Armenia currently holds more than 20% of Azerbaijani territories under its invasion, which is acknowledged during several CSCE/OSCE summits, such as those held in Budapest '94 and in Lisbon '96. Armenia fails to comply with the international law and implement the four UN Security Council resolutions (822, 853, 874 and 884 all passed in 1993), which demand Armenia to unconditionally withdraw its troops from Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan.

 

It might be deemed that the groupís decision is fair and will serve humanitarian values, while significant historical facts prove the opposite. Before all, 1915ís incident, which had occurred in the dramatic conditions of the I. World War, is not a genocide but deportation. Not only people of the Armenian nationality suffered during this major war. Fanatic Armenians neglecting pain suffered by other people are representing their drama in the foreground. Over two million Turks have lost their lives during that period. Large numbers of these people were innocent civilians massacred by Armenian gangs. Not only do Turkish scientists remark these historical realities, but it is also possible to read about the reality by many Western scholars, such as Samuel Weems, Justin McCarthy, Gunter Lewy, Felix Tsertisivadze and others. Consequently, while taking a decision, views of the both sides must be considered.

 

We believe that fanatic Armenian patrons have deceived the US public opinion by propagandizing that they work for humanitarian values and democracy. Once more, the ones who argued to defend the values respected by all had in 1992 massacred tens of thousands of Azeris and exposed more than a million civilians to ethnic genocide.  Do you know about the pains and sufferings that the Azerbaijani people have gone through as a result of the Armenian aggression? Is it a war? No, it is a Hell. Hell that

 

 

only a few are known about. Those who died (may peace be upon them) in the hands of Armenian aggressors will keep their silence forever, those who lived through this may never want to speak again.  Their killings of dozens of innocent Turkish diplomats and civilians through terror organizations like ASALA that the same Armenian patrons have established in recent history has not yet faded in our memories. A number of vicious murders that ASALA carried out were committed in our country Canada. We don't think you have forgotten these murders.

 

Fanatic Armenians arguing the so-called genocide have only one aim. These patrons are after the dream of founding Great Armenia by abusing humanitarian values. For this they have first invaded Nagorno Karabakh and now by propagandizing the so-called genocide, they wish to obtain land from Turkey. If the opposite of this were true, fanatical patrons would openly declare their respect to the territorial integrity of their neighbours. 

 

We invite you to reject the resolution about the so-called Armenian genocide which obviously will have no contribution to regional and world peace. The step towards this direction is highly important for preserving the friendly relations between USA and Turkey, and USA and Azerbaijan and adopting a common attitude against terror that threatens whole mankind.

 

 

Sincerely yours,
