There is no better source to invalidate the
Armenian "Genocide" than that of the Armenians themselves... this one is
particularly important, given that it was written by the first First Prime Minister of the
independent Armenian Republic. No pseudo-scholar from the Armenian ranks would admit its
existence, especially when the "militia" of the faithful has worked to eradicate
the book from the world's libraries.
As usual, The New York Times chomped
at the bits to yield generous space to the distorted views of an Armenian, back in 1985; a
letter from two college educators set the record straight.
Excerpts from Professor Eric
Feigl's book, "A Myth of Terror," outline what Talat Pasha actually
wrote in his telegram of April 24th, remembered by the Armenians as the day their
identity-affirming genocide began... even though orders for the relocation came
months later. This page also examines Franz Werfel's The Forty Days of Musa Dagh.
|A Russian Officer's diary: the Armenians' "Barbarous
Once Lt.-Col. Twerdokhleboff becomes a TRUE
eyewitness to the "ghastly horrors" committed by the Armenians, he refers to
unflattering Russian proverbs describing the Armenians, by his 1917-1918 account's end.
"None of these (massacre) stories have
been corroborated by a single European eye-witness"... a superb 1895 accounting of
the behind-the-scenes operations and effects of Armenian terrorists, the roots of which
went far far back, well before the events of the "Genocide."
"A spirited defense of the
Turks against charge of atrocities," by Arthur Tremaine Chester, in a 1923
account that appeared in The New York Times Current History
U.S. Rear Admiral Colby M. Chester attempts
to offset the mountain of hateful anti-Turkish hysteria by presenting a 1922 report,
shedding light on "The Real Turk." Although his view was a mere drop against the
existing tidal wave of propaganda, Admiral Chester came under vicious attack — two
examples of which are included at page's bottom.
John Dewey was the writer of this 1928
piece, published in The New Republic; the American intellectual responsible for the
library system's Dewey Decimal System runs contrary to the prevailing viewpoint, revealing
such facts as "(The Armenians) burned at least a hundred Turkish villages and
exterminated their population." He pleads: "It is at least time that
Americans ceased to be deceived by propaganda ." Yep, Americans sure listened,
In this insightful 1999 report
from The Wall Street Journal Europe, one is
reminded of how no matter what Turkey does, the deeply-ingrained bias of the Western
media will somehow manage to bring up ways to criticize the nation.
|The Forty Days of Musa Dagh
Professor Erich Feigl reveals in his book, "The
Myth of Terror," how Franz Werfel knew that he had been taken in by
forgeries, and did not possess the courage to undo the monumental libel he had
committed... the effects of which can still be felt today. Followed by a brief report
regarding what triggered Feigl to write his book.
British Ambassador Layard wrote a revealing
1878 letter, aware of the Armenians' Method of Operation they would use so well at the
outbreak of World War I: "The Armenians ... would appeal to Russia, and would not
cease to agitate until they were annexed to her." Followed by Holdwater's
General Mayewski gives an excellent lowdown
on how European powers planned to pick the "Sick Man of Europe" apart, one way
by influencing the Armenians to rebel. Dr. Vahakn "Deceiver" Dadrian attempts to
discredit the Russian's reports.
The 1923 Manifesto of
Hovhannes Katchaznouni, First Prime Minister of the Independent Armenian Republic, Edited
by John Roy Carlson (Arthur A. Derounian); in its entirety.
Invaluable testimony by the
rare Western eyewitness who was there, and saw what really took place. "Hardly any
other Swede has had the opportunity like me, to thoroughly and closely study the misery
among the Armenians," wrote H.J.
Pravitz. The officer travelled up and down the Eurphrates in 1915, and sets the record
straight on Armenian propaganda.
Armenians," by C.F. Dixon-Johnson (online book)
The incredible 1916 book is now online; written by a British war hero defending the
enemy Turks in the middle of WWI for no other reason than to tell the truth.
The truth told is exactly in line with what propagandists today disparagingly refer
to as what "The Turkish government says..." Dixon-Johnson had the very
rare bead on what was really going on, much to his credit. Given there were few
others like him then and now, he was an amazing man from the Western world.
|A German Officer's "Genocide" Eyewitness Testimony
Lieutenant General Bronsart v. Schellendorf was the commander-in-chief of Turkish Land
Forces — the highest-ranking German military officer in the Eastern Front and in a
position to know. He was outraged at the kangaroo court proceedings of the Tehlirian
trial, and by his own initiative, tried to set the historical record straight... for no
other reason than to, as he wrote, "to help truth find its rightful place."
Dashnak Diaspora Domination Detailed by Derounian
Arthur (Arto) Derounian [John Roy Carlson] offers a fascinating expose on Dashnak
infiltration into the United States after WWII. The sinister practices of the
fanatical organization are spelled out, along with details on their collaboration
with the Nazis. Wrote Carlson: "The ARF assumed the leadership by its more
fanatic appeal, and its policy of liquidating by terror all opposition." These
terrorists serve as the mainly unopposed voice for the Armenian Diaspora today.
Dr. Philip Mansel offers certain truths in these excerpts from his 1996 book. Some
light is shed on Artin Pasha, president of the Armenian National Council.
the Armenian Question
Excerpts from Akaby Nassibian's 1984 book are telling, particularly coming from the
pen of an Armenian historian. The author details the essence of British propaganda,
the false friendship of Russia, and other insights.
|Turkey in Travail
Harold Armstrong was a POW of the Turks, and assistant to the British High Commissioner.
In his 1925 book, where excerpts are provided, he seems to be suffering from an identity
crisis. While supportive of his government's line on "genocide," practically

Diplomacy": Missionary Influence
Excerpts from Joseph L. Grabill's
1971 book, "PROTESTANT
DIPLOMACY AND THE NEAR EAST: Missionary influence on American policy,
1810-1927"; some disturbing information arises, along with some of the
typically propagandistic claims. The "do-it-yourself" diplomats surely
wreaked havoc on peaceful relations within Ottoman society.
|Mission Work Reports
"Armenian Affairs" gives us an idea of the Relief Work conducted by
missionaries, through an article of Rev. Partridge. Despite the fact that he was a most
ardent missionary, some interesting contradictions are at play with the typical genocide
"No witness advocated Armenian
independence more fervently than Mary Louise Graffam, wrote Richard Hovannisian in a chapter of "America and
the Armenian Genocide of 1915." The daughter of America's librarian at the Library of
Congress wrote a loving biography. But she was a missionary! Also included is a loving
piece written by her brother-in-law, the Reverend Partridge, appearing in "Armenian Affairs," in addition to some
"Oral History" by Alice Tashjian. Let's analyze what the good Christian woman
had to say, and how reliable was her testimony.
Armenian Grandmother Vouches for the Turks
Yegisabeth Kasebian had personally witnessed the
relocation of Armenians from the war zone of Eastern Turkey. She had gone through
the same marches as others had done. The only difference between
her account and others' was something called the truth. Appearing in a Lebanese magazine, Meraat Al Khaleej, this is
a Mahmut Ozan essay; due to the historical importance, the page has been placed
|National Geographic Magazine Excerpts
A few revealing insights from excerpts going back to 1909. The 1912 piece was written by
Chester Colby, and the third by Hester Donaldson Jenkins appeared in the latter part of
1915... providing a saner account than the hysterics usually present in the American press
of that period.
A rare article written by the honest American engineer, called "Actualities at
Smyrna," appearing in the 1924 Atlantic Monthly. Prentiss describes how otherwise
honorable "good Christians" were behind false atrocity stories, not necessarily
because they were lying... but because their brains had been washed by so much
This page features highly important
information, going to the crux of whether there could have been a genocide. We begin with
the details of the Patriarch's 1921 report, testifying 644,900 Ottoman-Armenians remained.
An analysis follows. There is a worldwide Armenian count from 1922, and a British look at
the number of Ottoman-Armenians in 1919. U.S. Consul Jackson's 1916 report of how many
Armenians were relocated is also included.
Sometimes the fairest and most truthful information from non-Turks about Turks would
appear on the LETTERS page of Turk-unfriendly newspapers such as The Times of
One Monster with Another
They were on the Ottomans' back with false genocide charges, meanwhile uttering not
a word of protest as the Russians persecuted their Jews. The British had to take the
heat off their Russian ally's monstrosity, and what better way than to allow the
Terrible Turk to become the new monster? Featuring a 1915 report from a Minnesotan
|Turk Hating Newspaper Confirms: ARMENIAN REVOLT
"ARMENIANS ARE BLAMED" shrieked the headline of the rare newspaper in the United
States, actually considering the other side of the coin. Naturally, the consideration
occurred while reinforcing the typical anti-Turkish propaganda; a few other reports are
examined from the same paper, to get an idea of where its heart really lay.
The Complete Katchaznouni Manifesto
The 1955 release of Hovhannes Katchaznouni's 1923 manifesto, as provided by Arthur
Derounian's Armenian Information Service, was a condensed version. Here at last is
the complete version of what Armenia's first prime minister said, destroying
many claims of the unscrupulous genocide advocates. Includes a valuable introduction
with new information from the Russian archives.
|Toynbee's "Nationality and the
This book was probably written by Arnold Toynbee before he hooked up with Wellington House
and officially lied for His Majesty's Government. Yet the propaganda is so thick, one
can't be certain. See Toynbee determine how much land the "dumb" Turks should be
left with. The main reason why this work has been sought was to corroborate Toynbee's
pre-war Ottoman population figures. At the time, Toynbee felt there were only around one
million Ottoman-Armenians, a conclusion he would double the following year.
Mark Sykes: "Dar-ul-Islam"
Armenophile Christopher Walker thinks of Sir Mark Sykes as a snob, but man! Did he
have the number of the people living in some regions of the Ottoman Empire. Read of
the intrigues of the Zeitounli Armenians, and how "Terrible" the Turks
really were. Followed by a gallery of stills, and excerpts from his 1923 biography, Mark
Sykes: His Life and Letters.
|Atrocity Propaganda, 1914-1919
Historian James Morgan Read provides a good understanding of the deceit behind World War I
propaganda in his 1941 book. Unfortunately, he is one of those many Westerners looking
upon Turks as half-humans, and generally applies a different set of rules to the Armeno-Turkish
General de Nogales provides terrific enlightenment regarding the Turkish character and
battle conditions, from his 1932 book, "Memoirs of a Soldier of Fortune."
An Ottoman-Armenian religious leader promises his people's support to his nation's
archenemy, all the way back in 1879; straight from the horse's mouth. A British Consul
from 1869 describes with great accuracy the intrigues that were fast changing the
Armenians' status as the "Loyal Nation." Other valuable accounts instructing us
how "1915" really happened.
Austrian Eyewitness: Dr. Stephan Steiner
Steiner (a.k.a. "Eshnanie") was a 1918 witness to the horrendous crimes
committed by Armenians upon the defenseless Ottoman-Muslim population. He wrote a
marvelous 1920 article in a Dutch newspaper that is reproduced here, revealing his
anti-Turkish prejudices, but honorably realizing that there are "two sides to
|The Armenians and the Porte (1891)
This is an amazing article written by S. G. W. Benjamin, with a view of the world that was
exceptionally on the button. He was fair enough not to lose sight of universal realities,
as well as pay attention to the real facts, without letting his prejudices get the better
of him; a voice in the wilderness for his time and, sadly, even for our times.
The New York Times provided its typically absurd atrocity tales originating from
Armenians, while covering the Istanbul "Babiali" demonstration... slipping even
here, as far as who was at fault. On the same page, however, the newspaper (to its credit)
presented a long look at the Armenians' mischief, casting doubt on the validity of the
initial presentation! Followed by the history of these events, excerpted from "The

It's rare, but when it happens, how highly
refreshing. Conservative British MP Dan Hannan takes an objective look at the status of
Turkey and the Turks. Propagandists would be quick to charge such honesty as being

Arshag Mahdesian cuts to the chase, explaining who was responsible for victories against
their own Ottoman homeland.
General Azgapetian spills the beans on how he and several hundred Armenians crossed over
to the Russians, in this newspaper account.
Simply unbelievable that there was a writer astute enough to report Armenian truth, and
even more striking that the report appeared in The New York Times. Followed by a
generous "Rep-Lie" by an Armenian reader, along with analysis.
The highly pro-Armenian eyewitness, Dr. Charles
Ezra Beury, made some otherwise interesting observations in his 1918 book, "Russia
After the Revolution."
The British author documents the "systematic" atrocities and attempt at
"extermination" that the run-amok invading Greeks were perpetrating from 1919
on, and right under the noses of Western observers.
