As we all know, the French
are so morally superior, they (with the significant influence and wealth of
their Armenian minority) try and criminalize the fact that there was no
Armenian genocide. What is referred to as an Armenian genocide was, in fact, a
situation created by France and her two wartime allies, Britain and Russia,
provoking and getting the greedy Armenians on their side, so that the three powers could split Ottoman
lands between themselves. Hypocrisy on such a level may not have been that
bad, but how did the French behave while in control of Muslims themselves?
(And we are not referring to the horrible way the French allowed their
bloodthirsty Armenian Legion to be released upon the Ottoman Turkish and
Muslim population in Adana, after the end of WWI.)
Here is a report from the American newspaper (in Indiana), The Fort Wayne
Daily News, August 20, 1907. Unlike the testimony of biased Armenians and
their Western allies that are behind the often invented "genocide"
stories published without question in the bigoted Western press, this
eyewitness does not appear to have had reason to exaggerate the tragic
Note this was less than a decade before the "genocide." And France
had the audacity to lecture
and threaten the Ottoman Turks on war crimes, on May 24, 1915. (Along with
ally Russia, who was massacring loads of Jews and Muslims
at the time, and Britain was doing its bit, as in 1919 Amritsar, India.)

STORY; Page 1
LEICESTER, England, Aug. 20.— Atrocities too horrible to
mention and a disgrace to the civilization they were supposed to represent, are charged
against the French and Spanish soldiers and sailors at Casablanca by S. W. Bolton, the
first refugee from Casablanca to reach England. The whole massacre there, Bolton asserts,
was deliberately arranged by the French. The invasion of Casablanca was so arranged as to
cause the Moors to resort to violence, time giving the invaders an excuse for shooting
down helpless natives and resorting to terrible outrages against the Moors.
Bolton is connected with the North African mission. He made a lengthy, statement to the
United Press, bristling with sensational charges, which show the French and Spanish
occupance of Casablanca in a terrible light. He said: "The conduct of the French, and
Spanish soldiers at Casablanca was a disgrace to civilization. It is almost beyond belief
that such horrors as were committed by the French and Spaniards could have been done by
Christian Europeans. Though my country has alliances with both France and Spain, 1
consider it my duty to reveal the truth, and I declare France deliberately arranged to
cause the massacre at Casablanca as an act ot petty revenge.
"It was all a brutish blunder. If, in the first instance, France had landed 500 or
600 men to preserve order there would not have been any massacre. [Continued on Tenth

There was no need for France to try to capture the town,
for the Moors stood ready even to deliver the keys to France if they had been asked for,
and to punish in any way agreeable to France the assassins of Europeans.
"But France landed less than 100 men, who tried to force their way Into Casablanca,
and when the Moors resisted, began shooting. The whole affair was pre-arranged with the
idea of making the Moors the aggressors, so that the French and Spanish soldiers could
have the sport of killing defenseless men and women.

the order was useless, for the soldiers never looked for flags, but shot to kill every

WILL DEMAND SATISFACTION
Tangier, Aug. 6—Advices late this afternoon from Casablanca say that the native
losses in the fighting there numbered 150 persons killed or wounded by bayonets and
400 were struck by shells. Part of the town was in flames when the message was sent.
Tangier, Morocco, Aug. 6.—Open hostilities resulting in the injury of five French
officers and sailors, the bombardment of the villages surrounding Casa Blanca by
French and Spanish warships, many casualties among the Moors and a demand that the
Moorish commander surrender to the French consul under a threat to raze Casa Blanca
today marked the most serious breach of the troubles there. The French admiral
ordered 150 sailors to go ashore from the cruiser Galilee to protect the French
consulate. The Moorish troops and tribesmen looked upon the landing of the men as an
invasion and opened fire upon them. Five officers fell at the first volley. Six
sailors also had been wounded when the Galilee began the bombardment from the
harbor. When the shells began breaking over the town, the Moors quickly fell back
and the French sailors were able to take up the wounded and care for them. The
French cruiser Duchayla quickly joined the Galilee in the bombardment and the
Spanish cruiser Don Alvarode Vanzan also joined in sending shells over the town. The
bombardment was confined chiefly to the villages surrounding the town. Many
dwellings of various kinds were shattered and it was impossible to learn the

the guns from the ships were trained upon the fortifications. After two or three
shells had been sent among the land guns the Moorish commander signified his desire
to mediate. When communication was established the Moors sought the pardon of the
French admiral for firing on the sailors. This request was peremptorily refused and

Paris, Aug. 6.—The government expects that the infantry will be landed at
Casablanca on Wednesday afternoon and that the artillery and cavalry will be
disembarked Friday and Saturday. Germany has assured France of her entire approval
of the Moroccan program. To all diplomatic visitors, Foreign Minister Pichon

FRANCE AND THE BOER WAR.
Delcassé Tells Deputies an Offer to Mediate Is Impossible—The Chamber Approves His
PARIS, Jan. 20.—To-day's session of the Chamber of Deputies was devoted to
interpellations concerning the attitude of France on the Boer war and the Armenian
M. Rouanet (Radical Socialist) presented the first interpellation, in which he criticised
the Government for not securing the settlement of the Armenian Question when it forced
Turkey to yield In the matter of the Lorando and other claims.
M. Delcasse, Minister of Foreign Affairs, replied that this matter was an international
one, and that intervention at the present moment would be inopportune, as it would raise
delicate and complicated questions. The Chamber approved the declaration of the Foreign
Minister by. a vote of [280 to 238].
M. Berry, (Conservative,) Clovis Hugues. (Republican Socialist,) and the Abbé Lemire
(Christian Socialist) then introduced various interpellations bearing upon the lack of
action of The Hague Peace Tribunal in regard to the war in South Africa. These speakers
dilated upon the horrors of the concentration camps and alleged violations of the rules of
war. M. Berry declared that Great Britain had excluded the Transvaal from The Hague
Conference because she was then intent upon forcing a war on the Boers, and contended that
certain articles of the peace convention authorized the powers to intervene if they wished
to do so. M. Berry urged the Government to bring about Intervention in South Africa.
The Abbé Lemire also called upon the Government to aid the Boers, not only by sympathy
but also by diplomacy, to become a free people. The Abbé concluded by saying:
"We made the United States free; let us make the Boers free also."
The speeches of M..Berry and the Abbé Lemlre were warmly cheered.
Leon Bourgeois (Radical Republican) said the present situation in South Africa did not
imply the destruction of the work of The Hague Conference, as the Transvaal had not
participated therein and consequently could not invoke its intervention. M. Bourgeois said
The Hague Conference had not yet closed, that the non-signatories might later be admitted
thereto, and that the the conference contained a germ which would gradually develop.
M. Deleassé, replyinG to M. Bourgeois, "said the peace convention did not prevent
war but compelled the nations to conduct it according to the laws of nations and humanity.
France was willing to invoke arbitration when certain that the offer would be accepted,
but nothing had happened in the course of the Boer war to indicate that an offer of
mediation would be favorably received. If such an offer were rejected, continued the.
Minister, it would be necessary to impose mediation, which would make war with Great
Britain inevitable. M. Delcassé added:
"We are therefore obliged to refrain, whatever may be the sympathies all here profess
for that courageous people. Intervention on the part of France would only result In
entangling her foreign policy, and it is the duty of the Government to retain the entire
liberty of that policy. These remarks were greeted with loud applause.
Denis Cochin (Conservative) said that Great Britain was suffering from the sickness of
imperialism, and that France ought to take advantage of her enfeebled condition and the
tottering condition of the Dreibund to secure the settlement in her favor of certain
The Chamber unanimously approved the declarations of M. Delclassé and then adjourned.
Translation: As the inevitability of war with Great Britain
played a big part in not dwelling on the matter of the Boers, who were certainly suffering
in a an incomparably greater manner than the early 1900s "victims" of the
"Armenian Question," it's only permissible to push another nation around when
it's safe. To embellish French hypocrisy, it then becomes perfectly all right to
turn around and to engage in the "sickness of imperialism" a few years later,
and to disobey the "laws of nations and humanity."
