You know how Armenian sources love to say the
Abdul-Hamid massacres of the mid-1890s (where 200,000-300,000 Armenians were
killed in the first "genocide"... while the real truth hovers from
less than 20,000 to 30,000, with 5,000 Turks also meeting their end) occurred
for no good reason? The Armenians were just poor, innocent bystanders while
the Terrible Turk went on with what Turks know best, the business of murder?
If you've gone this far in the site, the above shouldn't
come as a surprise to you... since the same is pretty much what the Armenians
tell us what happened in 1915: there was no revolt.
For example, Prof. Gerard Libaridian (in a debate
sponsored by the University of Pittsburg on October 21, 1982) shamelessly
said: "The genocide in 1915 did not have much to do with what
Armenians ultimately said or did...There was no armed Armenian population in
(You might remember Gerard Libardian; it is thanks to
him we get the expression, the "Armenian AND? Anthem"; the incredible knack the
Armenians have for obscuring the truth.)
Back to the mid-1890s: what is never mentioned is that
the Armenians began "Ku Klux Klan"-like operations beginning with
the Black Cross in 1878; these terrorist
groups (the Hunchaks and Dashnaks being the best known) killed Turks,
hoping to get the Europeans to intervene (once the Turks returned the favor)
and give the Armenians free hand-outs... playing on Christian sympathies.
When people rebel in any country, there will always be
violent consequences. One excellent reason why what the Armenians don't tell
us is often more important than what they do.
Well, guess what! The Armenians slipped up. Yep,
the following is from a bonafide Armenian source!
Gevorg Chavush (1870-1907) is
described as "One of the best and very well known leaders of the Armenian movement
for freedom, from the oppressive Turkish rule of the Ottoman Empire." His other
identities were "Gevorg Aroyi Khazaryan, a.k.a. Hrayr, Urvakan etc." (Armenians also have a knack to go by many different names. Particularly
in guestbooks, forums, letter columns, hoping to give the impression the writers are
ethnically disinterested parties.)
"In 1890 he joined a
group of Armenian freedom-fighters, lead (sic) by its brave leader Hambartsum
Hamparsum Boyaciyan, a.k.a.
"Murad" and "Muradyan," was a Hunchak leader; his country had
allowed him to rise in the ranks of the Ottoman parliament, during the days when a
Catholic could barely get elected dog catcher in the United States. He repaid
Turkish tolerance by slicing and dicing Turkish villagers behind the lines, in 1914.
In M. Varandian's "History of the Dashnaktsutiun" (p. 85) Boyaciyan was
quoted as saying: "All Turkish children also should be killed as they form a
danger to the Armenian nation." Yes, that is really "brave"... to
kill innocent, unarmed people in the process of extermination.
death of their leader in one of the vicious battles against the Turkish troops,
Gevorg Chavush took over the leadership of his military unit and lead the organized
armed rebellion of Sasun, Mush, and Taron (1891-1894). In September of 1894, the
Turkish government arrested him and sentenced him to 15 years in prison."
rebellion." Thanks, Armenian web site! Even (I should say,
"especially") your Armenian professors can't dare to be so forthright,
bursting the bubble of your Myth of Innocence.
(If the leader reported killed
in the early 1890s was Murad, this article was mistaken. The terrorist lived well
into the WWI years, wreaking further havoc.)
Pay attention, reader: the
mid-1890s are when the Turks (we are always told) ruthlessly killed Armenians just
because they were poor, persecuted Armenians... just like in "1915."
Yet, even when the Armenian
is a mass murderer, the Turks humanely imprison him... and for only fifteen years!
"Twenty months later he escaped from the Turkish prison, and returned to Sasun."
What IS it with these Turkish prisons? From MIDNIGHT
EXPRESS we learned Turkish prisons are the worst hellhole on earth. Yet, everyone escapes
from Turkish prisons..! Billy Hayes, the Turk who took a shot at the Pope (Mehmet Ali Agca),
Peter Balakian's "Action Priest"
relative (Krikoris Balakian), Taner Akcam...
In 1896 he met with the renowned Armenian military leader General
Andranik Ozanyan and together their military units got involved in a series of joined
battles against the Turkish troops.
Does anyone know how Antranik became a "general,"
especially as early as 1896? I don't know about the "joined
battles against the Turkish troops".... these Armenian heroes normally did best
against villagers who had little way of defending themselves. Here's a sample of how
General Antranik's band of merry men treated
"Furthermore, in 1901 he actively participated in the defensive
battles of Berdak and Arakelots monasteries. In 1904 Gevorg Chavush was one of the leaders
behind the second rebellion of Sasun against the Turkish oppressive rule, followed by
another series of victorious battles against them in Ishkhanadsor and Talvor. Many more
heroic battles against Turkish troops and Kurdish bandits followed in Kars, Astkh and
Jiminy Crickets! With all this relentless Armenian
rebellion, you've gotta give the Turks a lot of credit for keeping on granting the
Armenians greater and greater freedoms (which ironically allowed them to grow more and
more treacherous), and for the Turks' keeping their patience until 1915... when the
Armenians' betrayal was too great even for the Turks to bear.
Eventually, in May of 1907 Turkish soldiers surrounded Gevorg Chavush’s military base in
the Sulukh village of Mush where during yet another unequal battle against the enemy,
legendary Armenian military leader Gevorg Chavush found his heroic end.
