entire Armenian genocide claim is as bogus as a three-dollar bill and
(they) know it!
This page was originally meant
to showcase the Interview with Sam Weems, now below... but
after I set up links to this page and set up the navigation bar linking to
this page (Under "Comment," at left sidebar), I discovered exquisite
commentaries by the late judge. Of necessity, the table of contents for these
commentaries belongs here, and so does the interview.
Sam Weems was the unbelievably
rare American who wrote such commentaries (along with his amazing book,
"Armenia: Secrets of a 'Christian' Terrorist State") coming from a
devout Christian perspective. He discovered the awful scam the Armenians have
committed upon the world since World War I, and was outraged enough to do what
he could to awaken the many dulled and prejudiced minds brainwashed into
believing the Armenian "Genocide" actually took place. He travelled
to many countries conducting meticulous research on his own coin, and
reportedly got almost financially cleaned out by the end of his life. He did
all this not because he loved the Turks, but because he loved the Truth... and
also because of his hating the fact that his beloved America has been taken
for a ride all these many years by the wealthy Armenians and their "multi
billion dollar fake 'genocide industry'," as he put it. Sam Weems was a
great American, and a great man.
Let us begin with the
Commentary Table of Contents:
|Historical Evidence Proves There was No
Armenians and their sympathizers fall all
over themselves trying to find links with the Jewish Holocaust... from concentration camps
to evil Turkish physicians conducting medical experiments on Armenians, a la Dr. Mengele.
(Silly Vakahn Dadrian was behind the latter notion, and the sillier Robert J. Lifton
actually took his word for it.) In this brilliant essay, Judge Sam Weems demonstrates the
REAL parallel with Nazi Germany.
The Nazi-Armenian Genocide of Jews, 1935 —
The judge explores the blood-stained
hands of Armenian Nazis such as Dro, who first got his licks with ethnic cleansing
specifically targeting Turkish children and women during the Armenians' systematic
extermination campaign against the undefended villagers of the Ottoman Empire. Weems
writes: "During World War II Armenians learned well the art of racial/ethnic
cleansing from their Nazi partners in crime. Today. Armenia has ethnically/racially
cleansed their tiny state so successfully that 94.8% of their population is now
ethnically pure Armenian."
|Armenia is Trying to Dictate U.S. Foreign Policy
Learn how the Armenians undercut American
interests at every turn, helped by multi-million dollar organizations like ANCA (given 8
million dollars from the Armenian government in 2001), proving that they are Armenians first
and Americans a distant second. "...At every instance when the government of the
Republic of Turkey proposes anything positive, the Armenians will have a knee-jerk
movement to oppose it here in the United States! This is an unfathomable peculiarity even
Sigmund Freud could not explain..." What an excellent and eye-opening essay, as Weems
goes one-on-one with a lying ANCA representative.
A Den of Snakes
Weems explores the realities of the
Armenians' Russian-provided "Ancient Homeland." He writes: "Wherever
Armenians go throughout the world they den up together just like the snakes of my
youth. Most of the one million Armenians who escaped from their tiny state over the
past ten years went to Russia where they continued to den up together." Includes
a related news account of clashes between Russians and illegal Armenian immigrants.
|The Case Against the U.S. Taking the
Side of Armenians
This outstanding essay takes issue with
the United States blindly getting involved with the Armenian false “genocide
industry.” Judge Weems brings up historical chapters from America's own past to
make his point. There is also a brief Holdwater look at a "genocide"
parallel very similar to the Armenians' experience committed by the Spanish in Cuba
not long before the Armenian "Genocide," discovered thanks to Weems'
article. The difference? Nobody seems to know or care about it, like countless other
examples of "Man's Inhumanity to Man."
|Armenian Hate Mail
Sam Weems received plenty of Armenian hate
mail, along with much too many death threats, with the publication of his book, "Armenia:
Secrets of a 'Christian' Terrorist State." Here is his blistering reply to one
such example, from a "bird-brained" Armenian, to whom the judge fires off
several "admit or deny" questions, which no truthful person could dare
U.S. Dept. of State Demonstrates Armenia is No Democracy
Judge Weems sheds blistering light
on how the tiny, land-locked terrorist state really operates, thanks to a 2002 U.S.
government report. The dictatorship offers no true freedom of press, religion or
speech... and Armenian women, as always, have no protection against the brutalities
of Armenian men. Followed by another 2002 U.S. government report outlining where
the many millions of dollars of American taxpayer money has wound up in the
|And Just Where in the World are the Turks?
Using an example of how the ever-active
Armenians were campaigning for a postage stamp to commemorate their bogus genocide, Sam
Weems comes down hard on Turkish-Americans for their characteristic inactivity and apathy.
He writes: "If a non-Turk American, like me, can research and find such unbelievable
data so destructive for the Turks' and Turkey's vital interests, I ask myself why in the
world don't the Turks do such research...?" (The answer, of course, is that most
Turks don't care, and this is why the fanatical Armenians have been able to get away with
Sam Weems —
Judge Weems tries knocking some sense into a Californian Assemblymember, in an
attempt to counter the latest round of unending Armenian mischief. Next, there is an
article entitled, "Jerry Falwell calls Islam's prophet a 'terrorist',"
setting up a letter from Weems to an anti-Islam preacher.
|The Observations of An American…
An exceptionally thought-provoking essay
that begins with examining what the Armenians must do for
"reconciliation"; later, Judge Weems offers a number of facts and quotes
examining the dirty doings behind the scenes, why the Armenian deliberate
misrepresentations are often bought "lock, stock and barrel," and why the
events of this period cannot be classified as a "genocide."
Still Openly Support Terrorism!
In light of America's struggle with
terrorism after 9-11, the judge examines the support the Armenian community
has shown toward terrorist-killer Hampig Sassounian. Weems wonders:
"Perhaps Armenians want Sassounian out of prison so they can host a
banquet and give him a medal? Do they then want to send him off to murder more

Examining how Armenia
fleeced over $1.5 billion from the USA, thanks to the U.S. congressmen Armenia has
in their pockets. The tiny terrorist state has free rein in spending this money, and
little of it goes to the common Armenian people.
Minsk Group: for Peace or for Armenia?
In 1992, Russia was behind
Armenia's muscling in on 20% of Azerbaijani territory. Armenia was clearly the
aggressor. How did the United Nations decide to handle what came to be known
as an innocent "conflict"? They created the Minsk group...
with Russia in charge! (The other co-chairs begin France & the USA, both
strong Armenian partisans.) Of the ten other countries involved, only one is
Muslim. No wonder no one is leaning on Armenia's criminal actions.
The "About the Author" section of Mr. Weems' book, Armenia —
Secrets of a "Christian" Terrorist State reveals the following: Samuel
A. Weems is a former disrrict attorney and judge from Hazen, Arkansas. He has a juris
doctorate degree from the University of Arkansas School of Law. In addition to serving on
his city council, Weems was elected one of the one hundred delegates to rewrite the
Arkansas Constitution. The author of many articles and a regular newspaper column, Weems
has traveled extensively. Research for this book alone took him to London, Paris, Rome,
Moscow, Istanbul, and Washington, D.C. The Armenian Church has been an active partner in
state sponsored terrorism, dating back to the 1890s and earlier. (The following interview
was published in The Turkish Daily News on Feb, 13, 2002.)
The Armenian Church has been an active
partner in state sponsored terrorism, dating back to the 1890s and earlier.
(1) What are the causes of modern-day Armenian terrorism?
I think there are two basic root causes of modern-day Armenian terrorism. First,
even though the Armenian Church claims to be the oldest official state church in the
world, there is no separation of church and state. The Armenian Church has been an
active partner in state sponsored terrorism, dating back to the 1890s and earlier.
The second root cause of modern-day Armenian terrorism is the political structure in
Armenia that also dates back to 1890. Politics and state-sponsored terrorism are
one, beginning with the Bell (Hinchak) and Armenian Revolutionary Federation's (Dashnak)
statement of purpose. These official terrorist policies continue to this day.
(2) It has been said that the Armenian members of the Turkish-Armenian
Reconciliation Committee withdrew because of threats. Do you have any knowledge of
this? If this was the reason, how can peace be discussed and will those who want
peace be assassinated or threatened?
I have followed the activities of this committee closely. This committee was nothing
more than an Armenian scam and con job from day one! Armenians had an agenda and
this is why they agreed to a six-member Turkish Committee with only four
Armenian members, from day one, claimed that it was an established fact there was a
genocide of 1.5 Million Armenians in 1915 and that Turkey must pay reparations of
money and land to Armenia. The reason the Armenians wanted a 6 to 4 Turkish
Committee majority was because they thought they could convince the Turkish majority
into agreeing to have an American Institution make a determination, that the 1948
United Nations Jewish findings of fact would also apply to their alleged 1915
Had the Armenians been able to talk their way into such a finding by a committee
that was majority Turkish, they would have achieved two things to use to create pro
Armenian world opinion: First, that a handpicked United States institution had made
a finding that there was a genocide equal to the Jewish Genocide UN findings of
1948. Second, that a majority Turkish Committee had arranged for such a
determination. In my view, there were never real threats by Armenians to the
Armenian Committee members. Such claims were made to divert attention in an effort
to deceive the Turkish members.
(3) Has the US political system been used by ethnic lobbies for the interests of
Yes! Armenians established in the United States, what they called their
"Armenian Colony", in about 1918. Armenia sent thousands of their citizens
to the United States to lobby America for money and support from individual
Christians, Christian churches and the US Government. This Armenian lobby has been
most successful and continues its activities to this day. The reason for their
success is because they play the ethnic race/Christian vs. Muslim cards so well. The
Armenians know that there is no "Muslim" lobby to refute and oppose them.
(4) Do you think sometimes lobbyists may have put the aspirations of an ethnic
group above vital US interests?
I would phrase this question this way: Do you have personal knowledge that Armenian
Americans place their special interests above vital US interests? My answer is Yes!
Here is but one example of proof certain that Armenian-Americans do such things.
President Bush stated after September 11th that it was in the best interest of the
United States to reach out and build friendships throughout the Muslim world. One
such Muslim country the President reached out to, was Azerbaijan.
Armenian American politicians objected and fought the President's effort to
establish normal relations with Azerbaijan. Why? Because the Armenian lobby had been
successful in getting the US Congress to cut foreign aid to Azerbaijan after the
Armenians' sneak, surprise, cowardly and unprovoked attack on Azerbaijan in 1992.
Armenian American special interests were fearful that a new US/Azerbaijan friendship
would became strong and Armenia fears such a friendship/partnership. Thus Armenia
fought the United States War on Terrorism rather than permit America's building
friendships in the Muslim world. Selfish—Yes! Anti-Muslim—Yes! Against the best
interests of the United States—Yes!
in the dark ages of today's modern world
(5) Why has Armenia received so much aid from the
As I tried to explain in my previous answer, because the Armenians have been seeking aid
from Christians, Churches and the US Government dating back to 1918. The Armenians play
the Christian card and there is no one from the Muslim world to show that the Armenians
(6) While the US has been supporting Armenia, has Armenian foreign policy supported US
interests, especially in the region?
No. The only Armenian foreign policy I know of is this: The number one export of Armenia
is terrorism. The number one import of Armenia is foreign aid. Neither of these two
policies of Armenia is in the US best interests.
(7) Although Armenia is illegally occupying Azerbaijan territory, why hasn't the US
placed sanctions on Armenia (as it did on Azerbaijan?)
I am ashamed of my country's foreign policy on this question. The real answer is, Armenia
claims to be Christian like the United States while Azerbaijan is Muslim. There is a
well-financed Armenian-American lobby as compared to Muslim Azerbaijan that has no real
lobby. This is sad but true and American Christians must become aware of how they are
being fleeced and deceived by Armenians. It is neither fair nor just. This isn't
(8) Do you think Armenians have territorial ambitions against Turkey? Do you think
certain articles of the Armenian Constitution may be an obstacle to peace in the region
and contribute to an anti-Turkey position?
There is no doubt that Armenia has territorial ambitions against Turkey. Let me repeat
that: There is absolutely no doubt that Armenia has territorial ambitions against Turkey!
Why do I make such a direct and absolute statement? Read the statements of Armenian
Reconciliation Committee, read the statements of ANCA The Armenian National Committee of
America, read the statements of Armenian historians make-"Armenian Turkey"
and the "Armenian Plateau" in their books.
(9) What other countries have been giving aid to Armenia and why?
Russia and the European Christian nations. Why? Because the Armenians have been playing
the Christian vs. Muslim card so well since 1918.
(10) Can you please describe religious tolerance in Armenia?
There is no religious tolerance in Armenia. Well, that is unless one is a member of the
Apostolic Church in Armenia. The Church of Armenia practices Christianity as the Catholic
Church did in the dark ages of history. There is persecution of all Christians other than
the Church of Armenia. As in the dark ages, the Armenian Church excommunicates Armenians
and condemns their souls to hell if they take part in other branches of the Christian
faith. This is one of the problems of Armenians-They live in the dark ages of today's
modern world. Such religious attitude is not helpful to world peace. In depth information
is given on this subject in my upcoming book..
(11) As you have observed, it seems that there are more houses of worship for different
religions in Turkey than in Armenia. Why is this so and do you have any figures of
existing (destroyed, or not in use) houses of worship?
I spent eight weeks in Turkey in August and September producing the "Seven Churches
of Revelation" video, as I described earlier. I end my video by showing how
Christianity is alive and well in Turkey. There are more than 100 Christian churches in
Istanbul alone. I picked one to use as an example of all to show the total freedom of
religion that everyone enjoys in Turkey. I visited several Armenian Churches and
interviewed Armenian Christians. I did have experiences when I tried to visit inside of
few Armenian Churches and was not allowed to enter. I have a total list of every Armenian
Church in the world. There are several more
Armenian churches in Turkey than there are in Armenia. In each interview I had with
Armenian Christians who live in Istanbul, people stated that they had total religious
freedom practicing what they believe.
Contrast the total religious freedom Armenians enjoy in Turkey to the fact there is no
religious freedom nor tolerance for Muslims or other branches of Christianity other than
their church in Armenia.
The United States State Department plus religious sources I have reveal that there is not
one-let me repeat-not one mosque allowed to operate on a regular basis in Armenia.
Another interesting fact is that almost 95% of Armenia are now ethnically pure today.
Clearly the Armenians learned well from the Nazis they served so faithfully during World
War II. They are clearly working to create an ethnically pure society.
(An Armenian) baby is not born to
hate, they are taught to carry it.
(12) Many Turkish people are surprised to
discover that American-Armenians have a great deal of hatred for Turks (whereas
Armenians living in Turkey have no such feelings). The same hatred is fueled in many
Armenian Communities such as in France. Do you think that there is some type of
mastermind that coordinates groups within the Diaspora?
My research shows that there is clearly an Armenian Mastermind Plan that generates
Armenian hate around the world. In my view the Armenian Church in Diaspora teaches
this hate from birth. A baby is not born to hate, they are taught to carry it.
(13) Do you think it would be more effective to somehow negotiate with the Armenian
Diaspora, or to deal with Armenian officials?
I believe that neither is going to work until the Armenian Church begins to practice
the teachings of Jesus Christ. Until that happens, Turkey will waste time and create
false hope of ever negotiating with Armenia about anything. Armenia wants billions
of American dollars and Turkish lands, what is there to negotiate? Armenia demanded
those same things at the Allied Peace Conference after World War I. Armenians
the Ottoman Government give them money and land based on their bogus one-sided
massacre claims. The Paris Peace conference heard the Armenians wild claims in 1919
and gave them zero — nothing! Today, 83 years later, the Armenians are demanding
that Turkey give them billions of dollars and
Turkish lands. Such a claim, in plain language. is crazy. It was bogus at the end of
World War I when the Paris Peace Conference rejected it and it is still bogus today!
I would hope that we will see a climate of change take place within Armenia in the
near future, because I strongly believe that it is in Armenia's best interests to
have peace. There is something here that you need to also know. Not all of the
Armenians who live in Armenia are siding with Armenian terrorism, and I think that
the hope of peace lies in those people's hearts and minds. I have already received
letters from Armenians who explained to me that they were not siding and approving
Armenian terrorism. They are plain folks and they do suffer from their country's
instability, its policies and Armenian American lobbyist actions.
(14) If these issues continue to provoke nationalism (both in Armenia and Turkey)
and pose an obstacle to regional peace and stability, what role could the U.S. play?
You Turks need to answer that question yourselves. How much do you know about
Armenian Americans' lobbying activities that are going on in the USA? Have you taken
any action to defend the accusations directed at your country? Have you written to
anybody about it? How will the US Congress know you are right in your case, if you
never show up and talk about it? Or at least, find the truth out for yourselves
first and know that your ancestors did not commit such a crime.
Turkey has been a true friend of the United States since the great leader of yours
Ataturk established democracy in Turkey in 1923 and a strong NATO ally since 1952. I
believe since then there has been an unbroken line of friendship/partnership between
Turkey and the US.
Then there are Armenian Americans. But be careful; I'm talking about the Diaspora
here, not the ones who live, without a single doubt, happily and peacefully in
Turkey. The Diaspora have mooched, begged, whined, and complained since 1918 to
anyone who would listen. First the Armenians betrayed the Ottomans and joined the
Russians. Next, the Armenians
betrayed the Allies of World War I, cut a deal and joined the Soviet Union without
firing a shot. Then the Armenians betrayed the Russians and joined the Nazis.
Thereafter the Armenians tried to join the Allies, then went back to the Russians.
You judge what kind of troublesome and back stabbing nation that is.
There are some 65 to 70 million Turks. There are only 2.7 million
Armenians left in Armenia. It is a land-locked country. More than one million
Armenians escaped to Russia, Turkey, and other places during the past ten years. I
do not believe that the United States has any business with such unreliable,
unpredictable bunch of people in such an unstable territory of the world, which,
over the next 20 years, will fade away and become a footnote on the pages of history
if left to themselves.
|The real answer
to why some European countries passed meaningless resolutions of Armenian support is
nothing more than the age old "Christian vs. Muslim" issue and such things
have no place in today's modern world
(15) You have mentioned that Armenia is always in
want of money. Do you think the allegations of genocide are a way for Armenia to get
territory and money from Turkey?
Yes, I do. Just look at their activities, plans, announcements,
statements of their media in Europe and the USA and you will see that it is one of
the major goals of their lobbies outside Turkey. They are actively and tirelessly
working on telling their tall tales all over the US and Europe. Let me be crystal
clear to your readers: Armenians want an acknowledgement , an apology, monetary
reparations, and land, in that order. This 4-legged plan is written in every
Armenian newspaper over the years and it is no secret. It seems rather strange to me
that some or most Turks do not know this at all or do not seem to take it seriously.
This evil Armenian plan looks serious to me, which is one of the reasons I
wrote my upcoming book: "The secrets of a 'Christian' terrorist
(16) Obviously the policies of the Armenian Government and actions of terrorist
groups do not represent all Armenians. Are there large numbers of Armenians (outside
of Turkey) who are willing to put these controversial issues aside, who can serve to
end hostilities (or is there too much pressure against dissenters)? Won't an
attitude of aggression undermine Armenia's advancement as a successful democracy and
fail to create good leaders?
The United States is the most open and free nation in the world. I know of no
Armenian American who speaks out in opposition to Armenian terrorism. Of course
there is a few percentage of Armenian Americans, especially the old generation, who
do not approve of the escalating hostility toward Turkey. However, they do keep
silent. History records that when the Armenian Revolutionary Federation was
organized, one of its Manifesto statements was to use terror against its own people
toe the party line. I suspect this attitude continues today. And like I
mentioned above, there are Armenians who do want peace and stability in their
country, and do not want to fight with and terrorize Muslims.
Sadly to say that Armenia has never been a democracy, but a dictatorship. Their
so-called election recently is a complete fraud, just like the one in 1918. Look at
the Armenian voter lists — great increases in numbers while a million citizens
fled the state! Armenia must rid itself of corrupt state and church leaders before
there can be a start for realreforms.
(17) Do you know what was the motivation of the terrorists who attacked the Armenian
That event was nothing more than Armenian political infighting.
Armenians have been fighting among themselves since their beginnings.
(18) The EU parliament, France, Italy and other countries have passed legislation
accusing Turks of genocide. Can you please comment on the worldwide effort and
campaign to have pro-Armenian genocide legislation passed in the parliaments of
This is nothing more than playing the same old "Christian VS Muslim"
ethnic/race/religion cards by Armenia. The motive behind these meaningless
resolutions is to put pressure on Turkey to give Armenia billions of dollars and
lots of Turkish lands. When one thinks about it, reads the historical accounts —
he or she will find out for themselves that there was no such genocide. My question
is why should any nation on earth
involve itself in this matter at all, since these allegations of a
so-called genocide took place 87 years ago?. The real answer to why some European
countries passed meaningless resolutions of Armenian support is nothing more than
the age old "Christian vs. Muslim" issue and such things have no place in
today's modern world which seeks peace and understanding
of each others' different faiths.. I must note that history reflects that
France and Italy were two of the countries seeking national advantages for
themselves during World War I at the Turks' expense. I see that they are still
playing the self-advantage game! No right thinking government, based on the
conclusive evidence, can say with absolute certainty as some European countries have
done that there was a genocide.
|A law can be
enforced while a resolution has no such power.
These "Resolutions" are worthless and meaningless
19. The international community adopted the term
"genocide" in 1948. How have these elected officials legally defined genocide
and applied it to the events around 1915? Are there not inconsistencies? What evidence is
used to call this genocide? (Rather than accept the tragic events as a result of war and
deportation — in part triggered by uprisings of armed Armenians who allied with the
enemies of the Ottoman Empire).
You defined the truth yourself! First of all the definition itself clearly proves that
there was no "Armenian genocide!" The legal definition of genocide is this:
"The systematic killing, or a program of action intended to destroy, a whole national
or ethnic group."
The undisputed facts are that only Armenians in eastern Anatolia were removed. They were
removed because they had joined with the Russians in trying to overthrow the Ottoman
government. The absolute truth is that at least one million Armenians who lived in other
regions of the Ottoman Empire were neither removed nor were they harmed in any way. The
legal definition of genocide does not apply to the total situation of the Armenians.
It is undisputed that the Armenians in eastern Anatolia were disloyal to the Ottoman
government and were using armed force to try to overthrow it, by taking advantage of their
churches' immunities, as we all know that the Ottomans never interrupted their freedom of
religion. The Ottoman government leaders even asked the head of the Armenian Church to
help them stop the Armenian rebellion, or they would be forced to remove the Armenians
from behind their army. The Armenian head priest refused this request for help and the
Ottomans thereafter removed the disloyal Armenians.
Compare what the Ottoman government did to what my own United States government did at the
start of World War II. Japan had made a sneak, surprise, cowardly and unprovoked attack on
US naval forces at Pearl Harbor. The US government, on short notice with great personal
loss, removed every Japanese American from the West Coast of the United States and moved
them inland. These Japanese Americans were placed in military guarded camps until the end
of the war. This was done to protect the American national interests during a war. Just
think, there was no evidence that Japanese Americans were disloyal to the United States.
Compare this fact to the Armenians and there is no question but that they were not only
disloyal — they were also engaged in an armed rebellion.
It is "silly" to claim that the Turks massacred 1.5 million Armenians! True
facts are clear by both American and British eyewitnesses—there was no massacre nor was
there a genocide. In my research I discovered that even the Armenian chief historian uses
two sets of books. What I mean by that is the Armenians use the same numbers to count in
one of their revisions of history a massacre. Then, in another revision of history, they
use the same numbers to count refugees! I choose to believe the American and British
eyewitnesses' accounts and the set of books the
Armenians use to count refugees. Therefore there could not have been a massacre as they
20. From your research do you see any links between hatred and terrorism?
Sadly to say, with the Armenians hatred and terrorism appear to be one and the same.
21. Do the allegations increase prejudice against Turkey and have Turkish-American
relations been affected by the allegations of genocide made by Armenians?
I am sorry to say — yes, this is correct. I am also sorry to say that the reason so many
Americans believe this Armenian tall tale is because the Turks have ignored these false
claims for all these years and no one has stood up to tell the truth about the bogus
genocide claim. There is an old political saying in America: "If you tell a lie big
enough and often enough and no one challenges you — a great number of people will
believe the lie no matter how big it is" This is what the Armenians have been doing
since 1918 and the Turks have not come to America and disproved it.
Let me also make the point that there are individuals and groups such as Turkish Forum in
the U.S., who do a great job in publishing information to the Turkish Community around the
world. They do good work tirelessly defending the cause of Turks. I have great respect for
individuals like Dr. Kaya Buyukataman and all others who work diligently every day to
insure that the world knows the truth. Turkish Forum needs more support and contribution
from Turks to organize and spread truth to the United States and the world.
22. Have you met with leaders and members of the Armenian communities in Turkey? Can you
compare their life and status as a minority in Turkey with that of the status of
minorities in Armenia?
I have visited with Armenians in Turkey. They live very well and have the same total
freedoms that Turks enjoy. It appears that almost all Armenians, who live in Turkey,
especially the ones who live in the big cities are so well off financially and they do
live prosperous and peaceful lives. They own big businesses and are in total harmony with
Minorities in Armenia: there are only about 5% minorities left in Armenia. There are only
a small handful of Muslims remaining and they are forbidden to practice their religion.
There is no way to compare except to say that Armenians living in Istanbul for example
live in the sunlight of a modern world. What few Muslims who remain in Armenia live in is
the blackness of a moonless-cloudy night of the dark ages of past history, many hundreds
of years ago.
23. Many US State legislatures have passed laws that support the "Armenian
Genocide" allegations. Do you think they are adequately informed about Armenian
history? Can such legislation have an effect on US diplomacy in the future? Do you think
it could become a criminal act in the US for making contrary remarks (just like in France
where a well-known American professor was taken to court and fined)? What state laws might
be applied if one denies an "Armenian genocide" took place?
Permit me to explain these "laws." First of all not one of the US state
legislative acts has any power or force of law. All these state legislatures have passed
are "Resolutions" that are worthless and have no legal meaning! These
"Resolutions" express the thoughts of the elective officials. A law can be
enforced while a resolution has no such power. These "Resolutions" are worthless
and meaningless as far as actual laws are concerned.
Of course these elective state legislators are not informed nor do they know either
Armenian or Turkish history. These worthless resolutions are brought to them by Armenian
Americans who whine, beg and moan as they tell their tall tale of how the terrible Turk
massacred 1.5 million of their Christian forefathers in 1915. Only a very few Turks ever
try to present the truth and they are not organized as the Armenians are.
The purpose of the state "resolutions" is to influence American foreign policy
to give Armenians more and more American taxpayer dollars. They pass their resolutions and
claim a vast majority of Americans who support them. This is a lie but it is effective!
What the French do could not happen in the United States. The United States Constitution
guarantees total freedom of speech. Congress shall pass no law to take this basic freedom
away from the people. If any American doesn't like any law he or she has the absolute
right to speak out to oppose it.
business does a gaggle of California Armenian Americans have in giving many tens of
thousands of dollars to a possible new United State Senator from North Carolina?
24. Do you think an atmosphere has
been created in the US where students and academics are reluctant to study these
topics and think freely?
Yes I do — no question about it! Case in point as I mentioned earlier is an
American professor's home was bombed because he spoke about the horror of Armenian
actions. I know a well-known professor of history who was afraid to do a specific
research project while working on his Ph.D. degree because of fear of Armenian
professors! I know of other terrible Armenian American educators who pressure
students and other professors in our colleges and universities. Such conduct in my
judgment is unacceptable and it clearly is un-American!
25. Last April President Bush stated 1.5 million Armenians were annihilated. How do
you think this figure was determined?
Armenian Americans gave him this number! Armenian Americans buy influence especially
within the Republican Party. Case in point: Elizabeth Dole, wife of former Senator
Bob Dole, is running for the United States Senate in North Carolina. She recently
went to California for a large fund raising dinner sponsored by Armenian Americans.
Question: What business does a gaggle of California Armenian Americans have in
giving many tens of thousands of dollars to a possible new United State Senator from
This is typical Armenian American tactics and this is how they buy influence and
access to important elected United States elective officials. The Turkish American
community is not so organized, and don't do much organized grassroots action work
like the Armenians do. Thus the Armenians have the playing field almost all to
themselves and this is why Turks see an American president making such dumb comments
even if history proves such statements are untrue.
26. As an American how do you feel about the fact the textbooks of school children
are incorporating biased, inaccurate, and distorted information about the history of
Armenians? How can misinformation be countered? (such as the new anti-Turkish film
that is about to be released) Turks see this as brainwashing of American children,
how would you describe it?
It is brainwashing and it is the work of Armenians! You have to give the Armenians
credit for boldness. Consider the fact that Armenian members of the Turkish-Armenian
Reconciliation Committee wanted the children of Turkey to be taught that there was
genocide. To make certain the children were taught properly the Armenians wanted
Turkish children to be tested on an annual basis to make certain they believed there
I do not agree with this Armenian revision of history to fit their goals by teaching
children to believe Armenian historical revision lies! I don't think a vast majority
of Americans will like it either once they find out what Armenians have done. The
Turks must produce their own films for the American market. Again, the Turks must
get organized and support, with their liras, the efforts of Turkish Americans if
this great wrong is to be made right.
27. The Elian Gonzalez case in Florida seems to be a precedent in US history where
an ethnic lobby so blatantly resisted the US justice system. Do you think defiant
lobbies could pose problems in the future?
In this case the American justice system won. There may be resistance by some groups
in the future but that is unlikely. I don't expect Armenians to ever do such a
thing. There are only about one million of them out of the some 285 million of other
nationalities in the US. The Armenian way has always been by sneak-back room attacks
in the black of night. I expect them to continue these tactics.
28. Some Armenian groups in California have lobbied for lighter sentences for
terrorists (even defended their acts of violence). How do you think the development
after September 11 might affect the attitudes of such a group?
The Armenian Americans will just keep on keeping on begging and mooching money to
try to turn this terrorist murderer (Hampig Sassoonian) back out on American
streets! Even though the Armenian American terrorist has had his day in court, had
the best legal defense money could buy, California found him guilty and said he must
serve a life sentence. Armenian Americans today have raised more than $300,000, all
trying to get him out of prison to walk the streets again. Most Americans would not
approve of this conduct if they knew it!

and there is proof that the Armenians cooked the books and counted people removed as
both massacred and as refugees.
29. Are their newly emerging Armenian terrorist groups, perhaps
with ties to groups on the US State Department's list of terrorists?
I don't have knowledge for certain about this — I would not at all be
surprised if it was true. Recently a major TV network reported that
Armenian banks had direct ties to terrorist groups. Armenian Americans immediately
organized and campaigned for the TV network to retract the story.
30. Can you please explain how your background as a state
prosecutor has helped you to write this book?
Two things: Good research skills and the habit of always looking to tie events together to
prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt.
I used perhaps as much as 90% research from Armenian sources to write my book. One clue
would lead me to another and then to another and I simply developed my book point by
Permit me to share one example: On the second page of his Armenian history an Armenian
professor * stated there were two million Armenians living within the Ottoman Empire in
1915. Later he claims more than 1 million of this number were massacred by the Turks. In
another book the good professor provides numbers to prove that there were about the same
number of Armenian refugees as the original population, thus disproving his own
genocide claims. I didn't have to do anything to prove or disprove
genocide. I let the good Armenian professor do the documentation. I just pointed to the
obvious, blaring discrepancies.
The proof is that about half of the Armenians living within the Ottoman Empire didn't live
in the war zone in Anatolia and were not removed. This good professor listed footnotes and
when I checked them out I discovered that there were several American and British
eyewitnesses. All I did was to sum up the numbers supplied by the Armenian historian and
his simply didn't add up! I also then went to British, French, Russian and Italian
historical numbers (also listed by the Armenian historian). When you take all the numbers
together plus the American and British eyewitnesses, there it is-plain as day — there
was no genocide and there is proof that the Armenians cooked the books and counted people
removed as both massacred and as refugees. When they wanted pity, money, and
reparation, all these refuges were "killed"; but when it was time to prove to
the West that Armenians did have numbers to establish a state of their own, all of those
"dead" refugees, all of a sudden, came back to life! Magic!.

taxpayers of California. [p. 70])
31. It was not until the last few minutes before a vote on the Armenian genocide that
the speaker of the House of Representatives withdrew the proposed legislation because it
could harm US national security. Isn't this process confusing for legislators and risky
for the US to allow such proposed legislation to advance to such a point? Some lawmakers
believe that they were being asked to ignore historical fact because it complicated
foreign policy. How do you interpret the developments above and their effects on
The truth is the Republican Speaker of the House attempted to save face by making a claim
of national security when he withdrew the resolution. The rest of the story and the truth
is that the Speaker didn't have the votes to pass it and this is why he withdrew it! There
is a hardcore group of Republicans; I call them extremists, who could not care less about
national security if they could have passed the resolution. They had been bought and paid
for with Armenian American political campaign money, just like the Armenian Americans are
trying to buy Mrs. Dole in North Carolina.
You must remember one basic fact. The Republican members of Congress were trying to pass a
"Resolution." A Resolution has no force of law and does nothing but express an
opinion. It is not a law as such. In truth such a Resolution is meaningless and isn't
worth the paper it is written on because it couldn't do anything except making Armenians
feel good. Of course had such a Resolution passed, the Armenians would have had a feeding
frenzy, trying to use it to get more money out of the American Congress as well as trying
to force Turkey to give in and buy them off for a while with lira and land.
What is so odd to me is the fact Turkey and the United States are good trading partners.
The two countries did more than 7 billion dollars of trade with each other just last year.
Turkey bought more than one billion dollars more in the United States than the United
States did in Turkey. And what about the Armenians? Almost zero! Armenia's number one
export is terrorism and their number one import is foreign aid.
32. How successfully or poorly has the Turkish government,
public, and Turkish Americans responded to the allegations of genocide?
I know a few Turkish Americans who are true champions for Turkey. Sad truth is that they
are too few and they have little funding to compete against a well-oiled and funded
Armenian lobby organization. The Armenians have perhaps 40-50 full time professionals in
Washington DC doing nothing but working each and every day to undercut Turkey and
Azerbaijan and promote themselves for more foreign aid taxpayer funding. Turkish Americans
have -0- staff and office working for them in Washington
DC. The Turks really should do more to protect themselves. All they have to do is tell
truth! Here is an eye-opening calculation for you:
Armenians, in the last 10 years, have probably spent about 14 million dollars to support
all the political candidates that they did. When those candidates got elected, Armenia got
1.4 billion dollars in the same 10 years as US Foreign Aid. That is, for every one dollar
Armenian Americans "invested", they got $100 back in US Aid to Armenia! 100 to 1
return! This is a better return than Las Vegas casinos! (smiles) Wake up Turkish
Americans!. Get involved!
33. What aspects of your book do you expect Armenians will criticize most?
How about the front cover, the back cover. and every word in between! (Smiles)! They have
already started. I received my first Armenian hate email just yesterday. The Armenian said
my book was "lies, lies, lies" and was "nothing but Turkish
revisionism." What makes this comment so interesting is the fact that this person
made all those wild accusations about my book without even reading it yet, because it
hasn't been printed as yet.
I expect Armenians to attack each and every word in my book. I also expect them to attack
me with their off-the-wall comments . This has been the Armenian trademark since 1918. If
anyone doesn't toe the line and say and do what Armenians want and demand, they are
They attacked soon to be United States President Hubert Hoover when
he tried to help them at the end of World War I. Mr. Hoover didn't want to give US dollars
to corrupt dictators without checks and balances, to insure the money was used for the
people. The Armenians, of course, didn't want any part of honesty, so they attacked him.
They attacked an American navy admiral and a US Army colonel because these brave and
honest American soldiers objected to Armenian misrepresentations, corruption, and massacre
tall tales. The Armenians attacked United States President Woodrow Wilson because he
refused to give them Muslim land from "sea to sea" (that is from Trabzon in the
Black Sea to Adana in the Mediterranean) and would not spend ¾ billion dollars and commit
70,000 American troops to clear the Muslim lands for Armenians. Armenians attacked the
United States Senate, because they refused to vote for an Armenian mandate in 1920. Had
the Senate voted to send American troops to give Muslim lands to Armenians, the United
States would have involved itself in its first Vietnam of the 20th century. Armenians even attacked American Christians and missionaries because
they didn't help them enough. Seems as though they felt that $50 million dollars from the
American Christian community was not enough.
Another little known fact is that the Armenians borrowed another $50
million from the United States government in 1919, with promises to pay back. Armenians
cut a deal and became Communists in 1920 and said to the US, because they were now
Communists, they didn't have to repay the loan. Now, I will ask an accountant friend of
mine to calculate for me just how much that $50 million is with all the interest,
compounded over the years. Some say it could reach billions of dollars. As an American
demand that Armenia pay back the loan to my country. That's my tax money they are sitting
As you can see, I will be in good company each time an Armenian attacks me!
The Turks should be presenting truth rather
34. Is part of most of the US media biased,
if so why and what can be done?
There is no question but that some media is biased. However, it is not uncommon to
read good travel articles about Turkey. I think the problem is that the 40-50
Armenian professionals who lobby the media, and the Turks don't. This is a sad truth
and only the Turks themselves can make a commitment, put their money where their
mouth is and provide an alternative to the present day one-sided Armenians who
provide day after day slanted information. The Turks should be presenting truth
rather than silence!
35. Your title (I think includes "Secrets of a Christian Terrorist
State") may make many people uneasy (Armenians and Christians). How did you
decide this should be the title of your book? Do you think Muslims have a point when
they say that the press does not label terrorists who are also Christian as
"Christian terrorists" (such as Timothy McVeigh, the unabomber, and Serbs
who committed genocide in Srebrenica) but never fail to add Muslim if the terrorist
is a Muslim?
This is not the title I used when I first began researching my book four years ago.
However, as I did my research in Washington, DC, Paris, Rome, Moscow and London, I
found reference after reference (hundreds of them) about activities from the lowest
priests to the head of the Armenian Church, and their direct involvement in what any
Christian (or any fair minded person for that matter) would consider terrorist acts.
The first chapter on my book is also the last chapter I wrote and it is titled
"Holy Terror." I explain in detail specific terrorist acts committed by
officials of the Armenian Church as well as their political activity. For a quick
example, there is this episode in an Armenian church in Adana,
just before the Armenian rebellion in Adana, in 1909 I believe, where the top
Armenian priest sermons to a packed audience "Sell your coat on yourback if you
have to and buy guns with it.". Such open invitation to rebellion via armed
violence so outrages an American priest, who happens to be there that day, that he
storms out of the church in anger!
I hope the book does make Christians uncomfortable! American Christians too often
live in a comfort zone. They must discover the great truth for themselves. I don't
ask anyone to accept my book at face value. I ask only that American Christians read
the book with an open mind and then study for themselves to find truth about
After Christians do their homework and should they find for themselves that I am a
truth teller, they must speak out and demand that their church and their government
stop giving their hard-earned money to Armenia. For any Christian to stand by and
say nothing when truth is presented is to give approval to Armenian terrorism. It is
just that simple!
Muslims have a valid complaint about the way the American media mentions
"Muslim" to explain terrorism. This isn't fair nor is it just because they
don't use "Christian" to describe Christian terrorists.
In all fairness, I must note there is a major effort being made within the United
States after September 11th to make a big point of the fact that Muslim extremists
do not represent a vast majority of the Muslim world. Personally, based on my
experiences with the 97%-98% Muslim Turkey — I could not have been treated better
even if I was a Christian. All Americans can learn from the Turks and respect
everyone regardless of their religion. The true test is what is in a person's
heart-give love and respect and love and respect come back to you. I wish that
Americans would follow
this Turkish example of "Peace at home and peace in the world." It is such
a shame that Turkey's next door neighbor Armenia refuses to follow this great
teaching of "Peace at home and peace in the world" also.
At the risk of sounding self-serving, let me reiterate here, that every Turk should
read my book to understand how they were short changed by Armenian propaganda over
the years. I am planning to send free copies of my book to every Christian priest
and minister in America, as my book sales can finance such efforts. I welcome help
from Turkish business community to expedite this project. The faster I can pass this
message along to Church leaders in America, the faster attitudes in America will
change to see the Turkish side of the story as well as distance average American
from Armenian allegations. If anyone wants more information about my book they can
go to my publisher's web site at stjohnpress.com
Thank you for giving me this opportunity of sharing my thoughts. As I have traveled
the great nation of Turkey over this past four years I have been received warmly
everywhere I went. I appreciate the great heart of the Turks. My only regret is that
I could not openly travel in Armenia nor could I receive cooperation in the Armenian
national archives that are located n America. I believe that it is difficult to have
peace in the Near East because Armenia is such a closed society. I hope this cold
attitude will change in the years to come and neighbors can become real neighbors in
the Near East.
